FAH/PHIL: Chinese Philosophy and Religious Studies Salon – “Integration and Institutionalization: Daoism in the First Half of the Tang Dynasty” by Mr. Bai Zhaojie, University of Macau, Macao
|11 Mar 2016|
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.
