New in IGCS - Bibliographies/Buddhism:

Bibliography of Translations from the Chinese Buddhist Canon into Western

Ed./Corp.: Marcus Bingenheimer.
Language: English; titles listed in original language, incl. Chinese

Self description: This is a working bibliography of translations from the
Chinese Canon with the aim of later inputting these to enable parallel
reading of the original and the translation. Generally, I have limited it to
translations that were done from the Chinese, or with the help of a Chinese
version (in case of doubt they were included). Translations from languages
other than Chinese were in principle not included or mentioned only in
passim. As for target languages, "western" means every European language. A
bibliography of translations into Japanese, Korean, Tibetan or modern
Chinese, though of course desirable, does so far exceed our resources. The
biggest gaps are in Chan/Zen-related texts, translations done in the
nineties, and translations that appeared as articles.

Description: The translations are sorted by Taisho number, Chinese
characters and Pinyin are also given.
This site is part of the "CBS Comprehensive Online Buddhist Resources"
(, but has no direct link.


With kind regards,
