Silk and Religion: An Exploration of Material Life and the Thought of People, 

AD 600-1200
Silk and Religion: An Exploration of Material Life and the Thought of People, AD 600-1200
Description
About the Book:

This book is a fascinating study of the silk trade in Eurasia between the seventh and the twelfth centuries and explores how religious ideas and institutions affected economic behavior. The author delves into the complex web of economic, cultural, technological, and religious elements which transformed silk from being a status symbol, whose production and use were controlled by the state, both in Tang China and within the Byzantine empire, to being a freely traded commodity.

The author suggests that the changing religious concepts and institutions within the Buddhist, Christian, and Muslim worlds played a role in this transformation.

Readers interested in religion, trade, the history of textiles and its relationship with economic and philosophical matters will appreciate Liu's highly complex boundary transgressing study.

Xinru Liu is Professor in the Department of Ancient and Medieval History, Institute of World History, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Beijing.

Testimonials

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
