Description:

Abstract:

Since the late Han dynasty, the organized Daoism arose and gradually developed various scriptural traditions with distinctive features. During the late Southern and Northern Dynasties, these traditions started to integrate with each other. By the first half of the Tang dynasty (618-755), Daoism was finally unified and institutionalized into an integrated tradition. This speech will discuss the interaction and negotiation between Tang government and Daoism in the process of institutionalization and describe how Daoist tradition integrated their scriptures, precepts, and registers with a unified ordination system as its hallmark.

漢末興起的教團式道教經過魏晉南北朝的發展,形成了多種饒富特點的經法傳統。這些傳統在南北朝後期展開了明顯的交流融合,最終在唐前期(618-755)完成了整合及制度化,形成了作為整體的道教傳統。本演講探討唐政府與道教在此制度化過程中的互動和妥協,描述道教如何將各種經典、戒律、法籙等整合為一個統一的法位制度。
