Silk Road Studies
This series examines the civilisations along the Silk Road from Europe to East Asia and their characteristic archaeological, artistic, historical, linguistic, numismatic, philosophical and religious aspects. The exchanges that arose along the Silk Road produced intercultural outcomes that go beyond mere syncretism since they generated phenomena that integrated art, religion and philosophy at a deep level. A number of these volumes have been authored by ACRC researchers and produced in the Centre.
