Chapter Summary

This index presents the list of terms and concepts relevant to the analysis of the lives and teachings of Wang Chongyang and his first-generation disciples. Wang Chongyang was born in the village of Dawei in Xianyang, near Chang'an (present-day Xi'an, Shaanxi). His family consisted of fairly wealthy land-owners, who suffered greatly from the social and economic turmoil that occurred during the Jurchen takeover of Shaanxi in 1131. Wang's erratic and eccentric behavior inspired his acquaintances to refer to him as Haifeng or Fengzi. The major event in Wang Chongyang's life according to Quanzhen hagiographies occurred in 1159.

Keywords: first-generation disciples; Wang Chongyang
