From Chinese Religious Text Authority


The Chinese Religious Text Authority aims to connect bibliographic information across collections, archives, and private libraries in order to map out detailed webs of relationships among producers, publishers, and distributors of religious texts. In this first phase of the project, we focus on a corpus of pre-1949 Chinese Religious texts included in major reprint collections. The data generated from this open-access, international, collaborative project has the potential to reveal formerly undiscovered associations.

CRTA was founded by Katherine Alexander, Marcus Bingenheimer, Vincent Goossaert, and Gregory Scott in Dec. 2019. We are grateful to Simon Wiles for help with the technical infrastructure and hosting the wiki. CRTA has received funding from FROGBEAR, and The University of Colorado.
