The Life of Buddha and the Art of Narration in
Buddhist Thangka Paintings.
'In its characteristic unique way, Buddhist thought divides the eventful
life of its founder into twelve glorious "events." These defining
incidents of his life are given visual form in densely packed sequences
narrated in a special genre of paintings known as the "Twelve Great
Deeds of the Buddha's Life" (Tib. Dzad pa chu nyi). These artworks not
only delineate Buddha's gradual progress towards spiritual
enlightenment, but also present a visual depiction of a vast number of
abstract philosophical notions underlying esoteric

Americans access to this important sphere of technology.'

The Black Experience in Children's Literature.
'For many years books about Negro children followed a stereotyped
pattern. The characters portrayed were the barefoot menial, or the red-
lipped clown. Rarely did the Negro character in a story where there were
other children ever take part in the story as equals. Illustrators, it
seemed, could not resist presenting the quaint 'pickaninny type'. ' -

The Last Days of Leo Tolstoy.
'The Last Days of Leo Tolstoy by Vladimir Chertkov, Tolstoy's long-time
personal secretary, disciple and executor of his literary estate, is
both a history, a chronicle of Tolstoy's deathbed scene, and a story, a
personal interpretation of that event in a literary genre reminiscent
of the Gospels. Chertkov depicts the dying Tolstoy as a kind of Christ-
figure, who, by his renunciation of all worldly goods, by his ethics of
love and by his very death, saves a suffering humanity. This
deification of the great Russian novelist, who sought salvation in this
world, not beyond it, calls to mind the similar fates of Buddha, Jesus,
Confucius and other heretics. Repudiating, in his last period, all
religious institutions, dogmas and rituals, Tolstoy preached the gospel
of a living God within us all, for which he was excommunicated.
Persecuted by state and church and scorned by his own family, Tolstoy at
long last fled the spiritual conflicts brought on by the aristocratic
life on his ancestral Yasnaya Polyana estate to begin his new life as a
simple Russian peasant. He reached Astapovo, a railroad juncture, where,
a few days later, in 1910, he died at the age of 82. His tremendous
vitality, reflective powers, passion and sense of humor are all evident
to the very end in Chertkov's fascinating account. '

of Shinto Art in Kyoto.
'The early Japanese closely observed the rich changes
of the seasons—the arrival of cherry blossoms in
spring, lightening in summer, crimson leaves in
autumn, and snowfall in winter. They revered nature
and were keenly aware of the existence of natural
phenomenon, which they called kami—gods. Even today
these beliefs continue to be recognized through
occasional and seasonal visits to shrines. In the
past, this belief inspired many works of art. However,
their very divine nature as sacred offerings or
manifestations of the gods themselves hid them from
public view. The Sacred World of Shinto Art in Kyoto
is the first large-scale exhibition of shrine
treasures in Kyoto, which has been well endowed with
many historical shrines that existed prior to the
Heian period (794-1185), when Kyoto became the capital
of Japan. This exhibition has been divided into five
themes to introduce the fascinating world of Shinto
art and how it reflected the early faith, belief, and
fear of those living in the capital. This is a rare
opportunity to explore the beauty and mystique of
these divine treasures.'

The Voynich Manuscript.
'In 1912, the antiquarian book dealer Wilfrid M. Voynich bought a number
of mediaeval manuscripts from an undisclosed location in Europe. Among
these was a lavishly illustrated manuscript codex of 234 pages, written
in an unknown script. '

it deciphered. Now, almost 100 years later, the Voynich manuscript still
stands as probably the most elusive puzzle in the world of cryptography.

in the second half of the 15th Century, can be understood. '
'Attached to the manuscript was a letter in Latin dated 1666 (or 1665)
from Johannes Marcus Marci of Kronland, rector of the Charles University
of Prague, to the learned Jesuit Athanasius Kircher in Rome, offering
the manuscript for decryption and mentioning that it had once been
bought by Emperor Rudolf II of Bohemia (1552-1612) for 600 gold ducats.

the author of the MS was Roger Bacon (the Franciscan friar who lived

Australian Women's Art.
'Sophia Campbell's small sketchbook provided the inspiration for the
title of this exhibition. Her detailed sketches of her surroundings in
early Sydney and Newcastle can be viewed as typical examples of the art
generally thought to be practised by colonial ladies. Art was an
acceptable pastime pursued within a lifestyle perhaps offering limited
diversions. Women artists preferred to depict their immediate
surroundings, their homes and their children, often to create a record
to be sent 'home' to beloved family. The works in this exhibition,
however, clearly show that women artists went beyond the immediate
boundaries of their lives-beyond their picket fence to record a vast
range of interests with a vitality and enthusiasm which enables these
works individually and as a whole to contribute greatly to our knowledge
of Australian history and life over the past two hundred years ... '

Oberlin Collegiate Institute's Board of Trustees from 1835 to 1844.
During 1840 and 1841 John Brown failed in an attempt to negotiate with
the Oberlin Collegiate Institute to settle his family on land known as
the Gerrit Smith-Oberlin Virginia lands. In 1856, Oberlin College
students Samuel S. Burdette and Henry P. Kinney joined abolitionist
Brown in the conflict over slavery in Kansas. The specter of the
sectionalism loomed large at the time. On October 16, 1859, Oberlinians
John A. Copeland, Lewis Sheridan Leary, and Shields Green (a runaway
slave) participated in Brown's raid on the Harpers Ferry arsenal. Leary
died of a wound received in the raid, and Copeland and Green were hanged

'Core-formed and cast glass vessels were first produced in Egypt and

B.C.), such vessels, used as tableware or as containers for expensive
oils, perfumes, and medicines, were common in Etruria (modern Tuscany)
and Magna Graecia (areas of southern Italy including modern Campania,
Apulia, Calabria, and Sicily). However, there is very little evidence
for similar glass objects in central Italian and Roman contexts until
the mid-first century B.C. The reasons for this are unclear, but it
suggests that the Roman glass industry sprang from almost nothing and
developed to full maturity over a couple of generations during the first
half of the first century A.D ... '
