Radich Taisho corpus

  • 1. University of Heidelberg


This packet provides the Taishō canon of Chinese Buddhist texts, as digitised by CBETA. The corpus has been modified by Michael Radich to reflect certain text-historical realities as understood by current scholarly consensus and/or the best current scholarship. The files have then been modified so that they can be used with the text-analysis tool TACL, or the TACL GUI. The corpus is described here. This corpus corresponds to the "full TACL Taisho database", also for use with TACL (and the GUI), which is available for download here.

NOTE: This corpus was modified and re-released in March 2023, to compensate for two problems in the CBETA XML discovered after the first release; those problems and the corresponding fixes are described in this document.
