The Northwest region of China comprising the modern provinces of Gansu and Ningxia formed a natural corridor to China's heartland for foreign traders and missionaries traveling the Silk Road from regions as far west as India, Rome and Byzantium. Monks and Merchants is the first book to focus on this region and the crucial role it played in the transformation of Chinese civilization from the fourth to the seventh century. The resulting richness and diversity of artifacts and styles are fully represented by the works in this exhibit and catalog. (BIP)
