The introduction of Buddhism into China from the Silk Roads in the Six Dynasties period (222 - 589 CE); Buddhism at Dunhuang. An good audio lecture on Dunhuang: Mogao Grottoes...great for listening while on-the-go.
"Conrad Walters, co-author of "Journeys on the Silk Road", explains the symbolism behind the opening image of the world's oldest printed book -- the Diamond Sutra of 868AD. The illustration is, itself, the world's oldest-known image in a printed book."
