Gandhara – Das buddhistische Erbe Pakistans. Legenden, Klöster und Paradiese

Exhibition catalogue: Gandhara – Das Buddhistische Erbe Pakistans. Legenden, Klöster Und Paradiese. Mainz – Bonn: Zabern – Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle der BRD, 2008.

Although not edited by me in the strictest sense, I was responsible for the selection of the authors and the content of their contributions. There also exists an English version of this catalogue, Gandhara – The Buddhist Heritage of Pakistan. Legends, Monasteries and Paradise, but this version was printed in a very low number and was never available on the market. I thus give the content of the German version below.
