Buddhism was introduced to Japan by an emissary from Korea’s Paekche kingdom around the year 538. The region’s early Buddhist culture is the subject of the 15 essays in this volume, the illustrated catalogue of a major exhibition on the two states’ formative links. In particular, the authors draw on recently discovered evidence to present new theories about the transformation of Buddhist art and architecture in Korea and Japan between the sixth and ninth centuries.
