Gui De Cambrai

Barlaam and Josaphat

A Medieval Christian Tale of the Buddha

€ 20.64

9780143107019 Barlaam's extraordinary Christian parables were among the most popular and influential texts of the Middle Ages. They have been appropriated by some of the greatest writers of the Renaissance. References to and selections appear in the medieval bestseller The Golden Legend, The Merchant of Venice, and in Marco Polo's Travels. Philologists eventually traced the name Josphat as a derivation from the 'sanskrit term bodhisattva, the Buddhist term for the future Buddha, and the stories give a fascinating insight into the remote but real links between the two religions.
