Edward Conze presents the premier anthology of Buddhist texts and scriptures in this stunningly ambitious collection. He traces the development of Buddhism through the ages, with translations from the original Pali, Sanskrit, Chinese, Tibetan and Japanese. For those looking for the perfect companion to Conze’s original text, Buddhism, or for those new to Buddhist theology, Buddhist Texts Through the Ages contains a thorough and comprehensive guide to the theology. This edition also includes a glossary of English and foreign terms. Edward Conze was an English scholar and translator who was famous for his translations of Buddhist texts, particularly his 1951 tome Buddhism. He taught at the University of London and the University of Oxford. He lived in Oxford, England until his death in 1979.
