Online Appendices to the book Nomads on Pilgrimage. Mongols on Wutaishan (China), 1800-1940, Bill, 2015

Abstract : This document draws together materials from a wide range of sources and serves as an appendix to the book Nomads on Pilgrimage: Mongols on Wutaishan (China), 1800-1940, Leiden, Boston, Köln: Brill, 2015 (Brill's Inner Asian Library, 33). The online appendices include: — a list of steles presented by monastery in chronological order, including for each of them the name and origin of the main donor, the date and the amount of the donation, and a summary of the text for the most important donations (Appendix A2). Synthetic tables give an overview of this corpus of stone inscriptions (Appendix A1), and six examples of paper certificates recording donations are presented (Appendix A3); — a catalogue of the main monasteries and numinous sites visited by Mongol pilgrims with their different names, localization, legends, notes on their history (focusing on the Qing and Republican periods), main features, present state, sources (including stone inscriptions) and photographs (Appendix B); — a list of the main travelers to Wutaishan who left records in the Qing and Republican periods, along with a summary of seven Mongolian, Chinese and Japanese accounts (Appendix C); — a list of Mongolian gazetteers and guidebooks on Wutaishan, with a summary of two of them (Appendix D); — two praise prayers to Wutaishan (Appendix E); — the transcription of the text of a booklet in accordion form entitled " Great Enterprise of Restoration of the Main Assembly Hall of Ganjuur süme on Wutaishan, " written by the abbot of this monastery to request from Mongols the exorbitant sum of fifty thousand taels to repair the monastery, dated 1919. The forty-nine pages following the introductory text, destined to receive the names of donors, were left blank. — a transcription and a translation of the Mongolian texts of the 1846 Cifusi Map (Appendix G); — some notes on and photographs of contemporary Mongol pilgrimages (Appendix H); — a list of the twenty-three jasag lamas of Wutaishan (Appendix I); — and a list of references cited throughout. While the book uses phonetic transcriptions of Mongolian and Tibetan terms and names, these appendices dealing with sources use transliterations.
