About the Project

Project term: April, 2013–March, 2016

This project clarifies how foreign religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam have been interpreted and transformed in Java from the 9th to 19th century by comparing and analyzing Javanese (old and modern Javanese) texts. First, we will compile a concordance of the Javanese texts that have been transcribed and published for academic purposes since the 19th century. Then, we will identify and analyze diachronic changes in these religions’ concepts in Java as well as related changes in the Javanese language and culture as expressed in these Javanese texts. Concurrently, we aim at forming an international academic network for Javanese text research, as compiling the intended concordance requires cooperation among researchers throughout the world.
