The aim of the Oxford Seminar in Advanced Jewish Studies for 2020-2021 (rescheduled for Hilary Term 2022 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) is to bring together scholars of Jewish-Buddhist relations and develop a framework for the future study of the field. To date, Jewish-Buddhist studies have received little scholarly attention, even though the historical basis for the study of the Jewish-Buddhist relationship is strong.
