Of this cast literature, the writings associated with the so-called Five Houses of Zen are widely considered to be preeminent. These Five Houseswhich arose in China during the ninth and tenth centuries, often referred to as the Golden Age of Zenwere not schools or sects but styles of Zen teaching represented by some of the most outstanding masters in Zen history. The writings of these great Zen teachers are presented here, many translated for the first time.
