Journal of Korean Religions, vol. 8, no. 1 (April 2017)

Journal of Korean Religions vol. 8, no. 1, a special issue on The 1,400th Anniversary of Wŏnhyo’s Birth, features the following articles by scholars.

Special Issue: The 1,400th Anniversary of Wŏnhyo’s Birth

Robert E. Buswell Jr. and Eun-su Cho, Guest Editors

The year 2017 marks the 1,400th anniversary of the birth of Wŏnhyo 元曉 (‘‘Break of Dawn’’; 617–686), a towering figure in the Korean religious and intellectual firmament. Wŏnhyo was an important vaunt courier in the development of Korean Buddhism and it is no exaggeration to say that it was he who created the Silla tradition of the religion. Indeed, few others have exerted the depth and breadth of influence over the subsequent development of Korean Buddhism as did Wŏnhyo. His oeuvre is among the largest in the entire Korean intellectual tradition, comprising some one hundred works, of which over twenty are extant.

Special issue articles include:

  • Human Nature and Buddha Nature in Wŏnhyo
    by Jong Wook Kim
  • Towards a Buddhist Ethics of Emptiness: Wŏnhyo on Transgression and Repentance in the Mahayana Repentance of the Six Senses
    by Eun-su Cho
  • Wŏnhyo’s View of This World
    by Seunghak Koh
  • The Meaning of the Explicit and Inexplicit Approaches in Wŏnhyo’s System of the Two Hindrances
    by Charles Muller
  • Kingship as ‘‘Dharma-Protector’’: A Comparative Study of Wŏnhyo’s and Huizhao’s Views on the Golden Light Sutra
    by Sumi Lee
  • Wŏnhyo: Buddhist Commentator Par Excellence
    by Robert E. Buswell Jr.

Journal of Korean Religions vol. 7, no. 1 , Urban Aspirations in Seoul, features the following articles by scholars:

Special Issue: Urban Aspirations in Seoul

Jin-Heon Jung and Peter van der Veer, Guest Editors

This special issue invites readers to examine dynamic religious aspirations in the urban contexts of South Korea. Focusing on religious practices, adaptations, and material constructions in the making of Seoul, these articles contribute to the growing scholarly discussion on the relationship between the urban and the religious/sacred in the context of Asian cities and beyond (e.g., van der Veer 2015, Goh and van der Veer 2016). This special issue is the culmination of an interdisciplinary research team—the Seoul Lab—which contributed to the larger comparative urban research project of the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity undertaken in Mumbai, Shanghai, and Singapore.

Special issue articles include:

  • Engaged Buddhism for the Curative Self among Young Jungto Buddhist Practitioners in South Korea
    by Hyun Mee Kim and Si Hyun Choi
  • Ummah in Seoul: The Creation of Symbolic Spaces in the Islamic Central Masjid of Seoul
    by Doyoung Song
  • The Politics of Officially Recognizing Religions and the Expansion of Urban ‘‘Social Work’’ in Colonial Korea
    by Michael Kim
  • Punching Korean Protestantism: Challenging from within through a Televised Theological Roundtable
    by Seung Min Hong
  • The Religious-Political Aspirations of North Korean Migrants and Protestant Churches in Seoul
