These two lectures are part of the fall 2019 Arts of Asia Lecture Series, Seeking the Divine: The Lesser-Known Religious Traditions of Asia.

For over 25 years, the Arts of Asia Lecture Series has explored the many facets of Asian art, culture, and history. Now for the first time, we will delve into the finer points of religious beliefs in Asia - not the major religions with which our audience is already familiar, but the facets of Asian religious beliefs that are lee known in the West yet continue to inform cultural traditions today. The lectures in this series will explore Zoroastrianism in the Iranian world, Manichaeism in Central and East Asia, Bon in Tibet, Mongolian Tengriism, Muism of Korea and folk religions in Asia. We will also explore Daoism in China, Shintoism in Japan, and Jainism in India, and examine more recent traditions such as Sufism in Asia, and Sikhism. Please join us for this informative and fascinating journey.
