The Treasure Seminar is an interdisciplinary seminar series on treasure discovery and scriptural revelation across mainly Asian cultures.  Series one and two explored the treasure and revelatory cultures mainly of India, China, and Tibet, considering them individually and comparatively. We also considered comparable traditions across other cultures. The convenors are Anna Sehnalova, Matt Orsborn, Rob Mayer, and Yegor Grebnev. Participants have included Anna Sehnalova, Barend ter Haar, Cathy Cantwell, Catherine Hardie, Charles Stewart, Piers Kelly, Reinier Langelaar, Robert Mayer, Ronit Yoeli-Tlalim, Ulrike Roesler, Yegor Grebnev, and others. Most of the presentations so far have issued into publications. We are grateful to Merton College for the facilities and support received for the first series, and to Wolfson College’s Tibetan and Himalayan Studies Centre for the funding, facilities, and support we received for the second series. We are grateful to the Oriental Studies Faculty for enabling the third series.
