Historical Social Network of Chinese Buddhism

漢傳佛教歷史社會網絡

CB_HSNA_2020_04

This repository provides social network data for the study of Chinese Buddhist history. The datasets combine the raw data of various Gaoseng zhuan 高僧傳 projects with the Buddhist Person Name Authority. The data was originally collected at the Dharma Drum Institute of Liberal Arts in collaboration with the Chung-hwa Institute of Buddhist Studies.

此倉庫提供關於漢傳佛教歷史的網絡資料。其資料集合并高僧傳文學專案法鼓山佛教人名規範資料庫的數據以便使用在網絡視覺和分析工具中。當前資料集的版本含18000以上的人物。數據跨越兩千年的漢傳佛教史,從安世高到聖嚴法師。本資料採集專案由法鼓山文理學院中華佛教研究所資助。

The evolving datasets offered here are prepared for immediate use in open source SNA tools (such as Gephi or Cytoscape) and are the basis for an ongoing series of presentations, workshops and papers. If you find any errors in the data, or would like to create or contribute data on social networks related to the study of Buddhist history, please get in touch.

Further supporting material can be found here. Unsure what to do with this? Try this how-to.
