Chapter Summary

Quanzhou in the Province of Fujian in South China and its neighboring municipality of Jianjiang became known among Manichaean scholars worldwide through Professor Lin Wushu's efforts to stage there the 2003 International Symposium of Manichaean Studies, "Manichaeism and Ancient China". The nearby municipality of Jinjiang possesses the only Manichaean shrine which is still used as a place of worship with a historic statue of Mani as the Buddha of Light. However, an Australian team has been paying regular research visits to both Quanzhou and Jinjiang since 2000 and this chapter highlights some of the more significant finds relevant to the study of the diffusion of both Manichaeism and Nestorianism in South China.
