Crosspost from H-Buddhism
I write to draw your attention to an excellent set of review essays, published over the last couple of years and now gathered together in a virtual issue of Religion Compass entitled "Women and Buddhism." These essays should be valuable resources for anyone who teaches Buddhism or whose research on Buddhism intersects with gender.
The essays are:

Dear List Members,
Many thanks to everyone for their comments and suggestions regarding my query. It seems that Geling carries Daoist (via Ge Hong) rather than Buddhist connotations as a place. The only mention in the Buddhist Canon is in the passage that Dan Lusthaus quoted from the Brief Study of the Ancients and Buddhists (Shimin jigu lue 釋氏稽古略, T.2037).
I would guess this is a reference to Mount Katsuragi (also called Yamato Katsuragi 大和葛城山). This and Mount Kongo are in the same mountain range and both key spots for Shugendo practice - not far from Ominesan and other Shugendo areas, all connected by old pilgrimage routes there
You might want to look at 《釋氏稽古略》T49.2037.833a12-23. It is about a 布氏侍 = 布毛侍 who wants to become a Buddhist monastic. The passage ends:《釋氏稽古略》卷3：「建伽藍於喜鵲寺之東葛嶺之西塢曰招賢(傳燈錄)。」(CBETA, T49, no. 2037, p. 833, a22-23)
