The East Asia Library at Stanford recently acquired from Zojoji Temple in Japan a copy of the twelfth-century printing of the tenth-century Chinese work called the Song Dynasty Biographies of Eminent Monks 宋高僧傳. With over five hundred biographies, it is an invaluable source of historical information on monks from about 700 to 900.
