  About the Book 

This volume brings together 12 essays on the history and culture of the early Korean kingdom of Silla that emerged in the early Christian era and continued to flourish until the early 10th Century. 10 leading specialists on early Korean history and culture address a spectrum of fascinating issues, including links between ideology, religion and politics, and locate political and religious changes on the Korean peninsula within an East Asian framework. While making no claim to comprehensiveness, it covers a range of issues-prehistory, the rise of Silla, the war of peninsular conquest in the 7th century, political developments during the Unified Silla period, and other themes in the history of Silla Buddhism as diverse as the place of Silla Buddhism in East Asia, Wŏnhyo, and the rise of Sŏn (Zen) Buddhism during the Unified Silla period. The book is focused in the dynamics of broad changes in early Korean society and its ideologies, and gives the background that is crucial for an incisive understanding of the patterns of Korean history.
