Formation des paradigmes religieux entre essai et hagiographie : étude de deux biji du bouddhisme Chan des Song du Sud (1127-1279)

Abstract : During the Song Dynasty, the writings of the Chan School reached their peak. Several new literary forms emerged, including the Chan Biji (Miscellanies) which appeared in the early 12th century and flourished during the following centuries. Composed essentially of anecdotes of hagiographic nature, the Biji texts contain a considerable amount of writings and acts of the clergy and laypeople of the Chan, which were unpublished at the time and deal with various aspects of Buddhist life in pre-modern China. To explore this genre, neglected until today, the author’s research is based on two representative Biji works - the Luohu Yelu 羅湖野錄 (Record of unofficial sayings on the Luo Lake) and Ganshan yunwo Jitan 感山雲臥記譚 (Memories and sayings from the host of the "Nestled in the clouds" cottage on Gan Mount). After historical and documentary studies of these texts, the author identified four research themes offering an overview of the underlying religious paradigm. This work concludes with a reflection on the formal characteristics of the Chan Biji
