    • Profile

      Stephen F. Teiser's most recent book is Readings of the Lotus Sūtra (co-edited with Jacqueline I. Stone, 2009). He received the Prix Stanislas Julien, awarded by the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles Lettres, Institut de France, for his 2006 book, Reinventing the Wheel: Paintings of Rebirth in Medieval Buddhist Temples. His new research examines healing liturgies contained among the medieval Chinese Buddhist manuscripts discovered in Dunhuang (northwest China). He is interested in how visual materials and the study of manuscripts can be combined with the standard sources for the study of Chinese Buddhism. His undergraduate courses cover Chinese religion and the history of Buddhism. He currently serves as Director of Princeton's Program in East Asian Studies.
