Buddhist Manuscript Cultures: Knowledge, Ritual, and Art (Routledge Critical Studies in Buddhism) by Stephen C. Berkwitz
English | 2009 | ISBN: 0415776163 | 211 Pages | PDF | 11 MB

Buddhist Manuscript Cultures explores how religious and cultural practices in premodern Asia were shaped by literary and artistic traditions as well as by Buddhist material culture. This study of Buddhist texts focuses on the significance of their material forms rather than their doctrinal contents, and examines how and why they were made.
Collectively, the book offers cross-cultural and comparative insights into the transmission of Buddhist knowledge and the use of texts and images as ritual objects in the artistic and aesthetic traditions of Buddhist cultures.

Medicine, Magic and Art in Early Modern Norway: Conceptualizing Knowledge By Ane Ohrvik
English | EPUB | 2018 | 315 Pages | ISBN : 113746741X | 3.57 MB

This book addresses magical ideas and practices in early modern Norway. It examines a large corpus of Norwegian manuscripts from 1650-1850 commonly called Black Books which contained a mixture of recipes on medicine, magic, and art. Ane Ohrvik assesses the Black Books from the vantage point of those who wrote the manuscripts and thus offers an original study of how early modern magical practitioners presented their ideas and saw their practices. The book show how the writers viewed magic and medicine both as practical and sacred art and as knowledge worth protecting through encoding the text.
