23-25 May 2018: BuddhistRoad Start-up Conference, held at Beckmanns Hof, Ruhr Universität Bochum, Germany

Establishing of Buddhist Nodes in Eastern Central Asia 6th to 14th c.
Part I: Sacred Space, Pilgrimage, Patronage, Legitimation Strategies

The aim of the start-up conference was to investigate the complexities concerning patronage and donors in Central Asian Buddhist communities on the one hand, and issues relating to sacred spaces and pilgrimage on the other. While the focus was be on the cultures that thrived along the Silk Road during the period 6–14th centuries, the scope of the meeting also included these thematics in adjacent areas and cultures in order to provide viable comparative and theoretical basis for further elucidation and discussion.
