Little is known about the early history, political organization, or geographical extent of the different polities that were scattered over mainland Southeast Asia during the late first millennium and the early second millennium of the Common Era. Our present knowledge derives from a vast array of archaeological objects, monuments, and inscriptions, mainly religious in content. Based on this epigraphic and material evidence, we know that a large area that today constitutes mainland Southeast Asia was strongly shaped by Buddhism from the 6th century CE onwards, although Brahmanism and local beliefs were also common. The focus of these four lectures is on the early introduction, adaptation, and later development of Buddhist art and culture in these lands.

Apr 4: Facts and Fiction on the Advent of Buddhism in Suvannabhumi

Apr 5: Dvaravati Art and Culture: Between Tradition and Innovation

Apr 6: Origins and Spread of Bhadrasana Buddhas
