When this book was first published in 1971, under the title Buddhist Precept and Practice, The Times Literary Supplement Wrote: “This is an epoch-making piece of research which must mark a change in direction and appreciation if it is taken seriously and studied in details. Dr. Gombrich is concerned with religious change in belief and practice, not only in modern times but over the two and a half millennia during which Buddhism has flourished. He concludes that Sinhalese Buddhism has been remarkably conservative and rejects the assumption that it degenerated from an original high standard, by questioning whether it ever was as pure as a superficial reading of classical texts might suggest. It would be very difficult to provide a combination of scholarship and sympathy such as that which pervades Dr. Gombrich’s book and makes it a landmark in the study of religion. “Out of print for many years, the book is now republished corrected but substantially unchanged.Printed Pages: 442.
