In Search of the Christian Buddha
- How an Asian Sage Became a Medieval Saint
- By: Donald S. Lopez Jr., Peggy McCracken
- Narrated by: Eric Martin
- Length: 7 hrs and 35 mins
The tale of St. Josaphat, a prince who gave up his wealth and kingdom to follow Jesus, was widely told and read in the Middle Ages, translated into a dozen languages, and even cited by Shakespeare in The Merchant of Venice. Only in the 19th century did scholars note the parallels between the lives of Buddha and Josaphat. In Search of the Christian Buddha traces the Buddha’s story from India to Persia to Jerusalem and then throughout Europe, as it was rewritten by Muslim, Jewish, and Christian authors, illustrating its unsuspected integration into European culture.
