Huyse, Philip
La Perse Antique (2005)
In: Series: Guide Belles Lettres des Civilisations, 20
Paris: Belles Lettres, 2005, 298 p.
Abstract: Ils furent à l'origine du premier empire-monde de l'histoire entre Nil et Indus. Leur culture fascinante a rayonné sur trois continents et leur civilisation compte parmi les plus grandes de l'Antiquité. Souvent mécompris, ils sont en outre toujours restés dans l'ombre de leurs rivaux et partenaires en Grèce, à Rome ou à Byzance. Ce guide s'efforce d'éradiquer le préjugé tenace qui fait des Perses des barbares sauvages et décadents. [Publisher]

Veterum Persarum et Parthorum et Medorum religionis historia Editio secunda (1760)
Oxford: E Typographeo Clarendoniano, 1760, 2 ed., 580 p.
Abstract: Second edition edited by George Costard [1710-1782] and Thomas Hunt [1696-1774] of this account of early religions and religious beliefs in Persia, including a life of Zoroaster (first published in 1700 with title: Historia religionis veterum Persarum). Hyde's most important and most celebrated work. It was a first attempt to treat the subject in a scholarly fashion, and abounds in oriental learning. This second edition was published by Dr. Thomas Hunt (1696-1774) in 1760.

It was "..the first attempt to correct from Oriental sources the errors of the Greek and Roman historians who had described the religion of the ancient Persians." [Encycl. Britannica, 11th Ed.] Hyde was professor of Hebrew and Arabic at Oxford, and for a long period, during the reigns of Charles II, James II, and William III, held the post of interpreter and secretary in oriental languages to the government.

Hyde's conclusions were attacked by the Abbé Foucher in a memoir read before the Paris Academy of Sciences in 1761. Anquetil Duperron, while admiring Hyde's zeal as a student in a field then practically untouched by scholars and acknowledging much indebtedness, also censured him for having gained his information from late Muhammedan writers, while neglecting the early Pehlevi sources" (D.N.B.).

The flower of Chinese Buddhism (1986)
New York: Weatherhill, 1986, 205 p.
Abstract: Translation of: Zoku Watakushi no Bukky¯o-kan, translated by Burton Watson.

The story of the introduction of Buddhism to China is a fascinating accounbt of the meeting of the two great civilizations of Asia: India, the land of the Buddha's birth and the homeland of the religion; and China, where Buddhism was transformed into a world religion, and from where the Buddha's teaching was eventually brought to Korea and Japan.

In this volume, Daisaku Ikeda continues his narration of the unfolding of Buddhist history. He begins with the introduction of Buddhism into China by traders and monks traveling over the Silk Route through Central Asia. After discussing the early translations of the Buddhist scriptures made by monks from Parthia and Sogdiana, the subject turns to the career and achievements of the great Kumarajiva, famed for his excellent renditions of the sutras and philosophical treatises that form the core of East Asian Buddhist literature – among them the Lotus Sutra.

The travels of Chinese monks in search of the Buddhist Law in India and the mass of teachings brought back is presented with great lucidity. Special emphasis is given to faith in the Lotus Sutra and the inception of the T'ien-t'ai School. In clear and simple language, the careers and major works of the great masters Hui-ssu, Chih-I, and Chanjan are outlined. The story closes with the official persecutions of the T'ang dynasty and the failure of the Buddhist establishment to meet this final challenge. Study aids such as lists of technical terms, Buddhist texts, and proper names in Chinese, English, and Japanese make the book a useful tool for the student of Buddhism.

Abstract: Iranian tribes from the Eurasiatic steppes settled in Seleucid Parthia, where they grew stronger, took power and founded the Arsacid empire. Nisa in Parthia (nowadays in Turkmenistan) was one of their most important centres. Close to the aforesaid town (New Nisa) the monumental complex of Old Nisa was intended to celebrate the glory of the principal rulers of this dynasty and their own traditions.

Excavations at this site have found a rich architectonic and artistic documentation, that appears to be the only evidence for the culture of the Arsacid court during the centuries B.C. Though original Arsacid cultural traditions, dating back to a period before their arrival in Parthia, were not forgotten, documents and figurative motifs going back to the art of the steppe are not numerous. Nevertheless, worth noting is that these documents survived in particular contexts even after the creation of the empire. New architectonic and artistic trends required monuments worthy of comparison with those of contemporary powerful kingdoms of Central and Western Asia.

Placing themselves among the great powers, the Arsacids could not find, in their ancestral traditions, a language suited to the official purposes of their new kingdom. They adopted traditions from both Eastern Iran and the Seleucid Empire in order to celebrate their royalty. [Author]
