The Tenth Karmapa & Tibet's Turbulent Seventeenth Century, Hardback Book

The Tenth Karmapa & Tibet's Turbulent Seventeenth Century Hardback

Edited by Karl Debreczeny, Gray Tuttle


The Tenth Karmapa Choying Dorje (1604-74) was a famous artist and leader of the Karma Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism during a formative period in Tibetan history.

The religious and institutional shape of modern Tibet was decided in the turbulent conflicts and dramatic reorganisation of Tibetan society in the 17th century.

This publication brings together specialists in literature, history, religion and art to discuss the context of this seminal Tibetan figure, placing him within the context of history, art and civilisation, and defining Tibet s place in the larger world of the time.
