Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Modern Chinese Religion I: Song-Liao-Jin-Yuan (960-1368 AD): volume 2 contains the table of contents, acknowledgments, list of illustrations, maps and tables, list of abbreviations, list of contributors, and a chronology of dynasties and emperors. Modern Chinese Religion focuses on the third period of paradigm shift in Chinese cultural and religious history, from the Song to the Yuan (960-1368 AD). As in the earlier periods, political division gave urgency to the invention of new models that would then remain dominant for six centuries. Defining religion as "value systems in practice", this multi-disciplinary work shows the processes of rationalization and interiorization at work in the rituals, self-cultivation practices, thought, and iconography of elite forms of Buddhism, Daoism, and Confucianism, as well as in medicine.

Keywords: Confucianism; Daoism; modern Chinese religion
