Chapter Summary

This appendix section of the book Ritual Alliances of the Putian Plain contains the carved stone inscriptions from Shiting. The Hall of Devotion to the Primordial has a history which stretches through four dynasties. The Fu(qing), Pu(tian) and Xian(you) Zhiyuantang (Hall of Willing the Primordial) is a combinatory style temple with the worship of the Lord of the Three in One at its center. The Qing policy of coastal evacuations led to an unprecedented economic disaster for the common people. The temple underwent several cycles of restoration and decline, until in Guangxu the Three in One adherent Xu Junfu, Huang Junjie and others divined a new location, and moved and rebuilt the temple on the north side of the Fuzhou-Xiamen highway in Shiting.
