Early History of Buddhism in Ceylon
This book is based on the author's Ph.D. thesis submitted to the University of London. Although Buddhism is the dominant religion of the country, at the time this book was written, there was little available on the religion's early years. Most of the information was scattered about in various ancient texts, very often not in chronological order. The author sets out to put that right taking the reader from the period before Mahinda's arrival to the early development of ritual. Good Paperback. Reprint. Originally published in 1946. 154 pages together with a further 50 pages of appendices and an index.
