Chapter Summary

The landscape of Song and Yuan Jizhou, as it emerges from the written record, reveals a process of negotiation between the threatening and unknown environment and the idealization of that space. The threatening forces that shaped the landscape and thereby the lives of its inhabitants might have seemed overwhelmingly powerful were it not for the manifold manifestations of the protective powers of gods and immortals in the landscape. During the Yuan dynasty, Jiangxi was established as a provincial branch-secretariat, which supervised 13 circuits, subdivided into prefectures and counties. During the course of the Ming, Jiangxi continued to produce a rice surplus, and much of the rice consumed in the rapidly developing Jiangnan region came from Jiangxi and neighbouring Hubei and Hunan. This chapter also focuses on the natural environment that surrounded Jizhou scholars and the rest of the Jizhou population.
