1st Wednesdays Zoom, St. Johnsbury Athenaeum (Caledonia County): Elizabeth Morrison, How China Became Buddhist and Buddhism Became Chinese
Chinese society never became exclusively Buddhist, but other religious traditions had to respond as Buddhist ideas, practices, and institutions permeated the country.
