Re: [Pali] Timeline of post canonical Buddhist texts
- Dear Lennart,
You must be thinking of a sequel to something like Pande's "Studies in the
Origins of Buddhism" (1957, 1974).
There is Karl H Potter's Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies series as
*Volume VII: Abhidharma Buddhism to 150 A.D.* This volume undertakes to
summarize the gist of Buddhist philosophical teachings from the first texts
that developed after the Buddha up to and including the mammoth text called
*Mahavibhasa*, generated from a convention held in the first or second
Karl H. Potter, Robert E. Buswell, Jr., Padmanabh S. Jaini, Noble Ross Reat,
Delhi: Motilal Banarsidass, 1996
*Volume VIII: Buddhist Philosophy from 100 to 350 A.D.* This volume begins
with the earliest Prajnaparamita Sutras and ends with the works of
Vasubandhu and his acrimonious critic, Samghabhadra.
Karl H. Potter, ed; Delhi: Motilal Banarsidass, 1999
*Volume IX: Buddhist Philosophy from 350 to 600 A.D.* This volume continues
the coverage of Buddhist philosophical thought through the period that
includes Buddhaghosa and Buddhadatta, Dignaga, Dharmakirti, and the
commentators Bhavya, Dharmapala, and Sthiramati.
