Medieval Christian and Manichaean remains from Quanzhou (Zayton) by Samuel N. C Lieu ( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Better known to Western medieval travelers as Zayton, Quanzhou in Fujian was China's main port and also the terminus of the maritime Silk Road. The city was home to a cosmopolitan population especially when China was under Mongol rule (ca. 1280-1368 CE). Italian visitors to and inhabitants of the city included Marco Polo, Odoric of Pordenone and Andrew of Perugia. The city had a significant Christian population, both Catholic and Church of the East (Nestorian), and the nearby town of Jinjiang has to this day in its neighbourhood a Manichaean shrine housing a unique statue of Mani as the Buddha of Light. These religious communities left a wealth of art on stone which first came to light in the mid-twentieth century but is still very little known and studied outside China. This volume containing over 200 illustrations (many in full colour) is the work of a team of scholars from Australian universities in collaboration with the major museums in Quanzhou and Jinjiang and is the first major work on this unique material in a Western language

Texts of Greek and Latin authors on the Far East : from the 4th c. B.C.E. to the 14th c. C.E. by George Cœdès ( Book )
in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume comprises a unique collection of Greek and Latin texts containing references to the Far East. Compiled by George Coedes (1886-1969) and published by him in 1910, these well-selected writings have waited until now for an English translation. The texts range from `Ctesias' in the Fourth Century BCE to Byzantine writers of the 14th Century CE like Nicephorus Gregoras. There are allusions in literary works, both prose and verse, as well as extracts from geographers and historians, some tangential, others giving in-depth descriptions. Even when these are based on second or third hand information they are the basis for any study of the Far East seen through Western eyes. Coedes collected his information very thoroughly and his presentation of the material betokens a sound grasp of all the highly diverse though related literature. The Greek and Latin texts in this volume have been translated direct from the original languages by John Sheldon with an introductory essay by
