by Chris JensenDear Colleagues,
I am currently in the process of preparing a course on notions of disease and health in Chinese religion and, in considering Buddhist materials, have developed a curiosity about perspectives on disability in Huijiao's Biographies of Eminent Monks [T. 2059] and Daoxuan's Continued Biographies [T. 2060]. This, in turn, led me to consider the possiblity of writing a paper on the issue.
My initial literature search has not turned up any published material on this topic, but it is certainly more than possible that I missed something. If anyone has any suggestions, I would be most obliged if they would be willing to share them with me.
