Studies in the fields of history and religion presented at the 2004 International
Conference “Korean Nuns within the Context of East Asian Buddhist
Traditions” demonstrated the active role women played as patrons and practitioners
of Buddhism in the Goryeo dynasty. Complementing the textual evidence
on their activities, this paper seeks to examine the visual representations
of Buddhist nuns and laywomen in the Goryeo dynasty.
