Literature and art play very important roles in the propagation of Buddhism; there is also a close relationship between them. The Encyclopedia of Buddhist Arts published by Fo Guang Shan Monastery contains over 9000 articles and approximately 15,000 pictures including the works of architecture, caves and rock carvings, sculpture, painting, artefacts and decorative arts, calligraphy and seal engraving, and people. Chinese Buddhist literature began with the translation of Buddhist scriptures and has gradually permeated through many aspects of Chinese art. The workshop presents a series of short papers on Buddhist art and literary history, drawing on the resources made accessible in the Encyclopedia of Buddhist Arts. (文學與藝術在佛教的弘揚中扮演著極為重要的角色,而兩者之間也有著密切的關係。由佛光山所發行的世界佛教美術圖說大辭典共有九千餘條目,近一萬五千幅圖片,包括佛教建築、石窟、雕塑、繪畫、工藝、書法與篆刻、人物。中國佛教文學始於佛經翻譯,而後逐漸擴及各類的中國藝術。本次活動之工作坊將借鑒世界佛教美術圖說大辭典中提供的資源,精簡地發表一系列有關佛教藝術與佛教文學史的論文。)
