The term 'revival' has been used to describe the resurgent vitality of Buddhism in Taiwan. Particularly impressive is the quality and size of the nun's order: Taiwanese nuns today are highly educated and greatly outnumber monks. Both characteristics are unprecedented in the history of Chinese Buddhism. This is an in-depth case study of the community, founded in 1974, a small but influential order of highly educated nuns who dedicate themselves to teaching Buddhism to lay adults.
