[Pruden 1973]  Pruden, Leo. “The Ching-t’u Shih-i-lun.” The Eastern Buddhist 6, no. 1 (May 1973): 126-157.

Pruden summarizes the extensive Japanese scholarship on the authorship of the Jingtu shi yi lun 淨土十疑論 T1961. The ascription to Zhiyi, though widely accepted in traditional Chinese Tiantai Buddhism, was doubted in Japan since the 13th century. The modern consensus is that the text was written by an anonymous author in the first half of the 8th century, drawing heavily on Daochuo's An le ji 安樂集 T1958 and other early Pure Land texts. The text should date between Huaigan's 懐感 last known date in 695 (Pruden sees Huaigan's Qun yi lun 群疑論 T1960 as a discernible influence on T1961) and first mention of the text itself in 774.
