Chapter Summary

Vicissitudes can be seen in the development of Marxist perspectives on religion in the New China. The development of Marxist perspectives on religion in the New China can be roughly divided into three stages. Stage one: 1949-1966. This was the initial stage, in which Marxist perspectives on religion were tentatively explored. Stage two: 1966-1976. Normal research work was suspended in a coercive manner. Stage three: 1978 to the present. As the discipline of Chinese religious study is coming into being, research work has been reactivated and is becoming more active day by day. This field has been fruitfully explored so far. This chapter shows that approximately two hundred articles and more than ten books devoted to the views of religion that were formulated by Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, and Lenin respectively and to the Sinicization of Marxist perspectives on religion have come out in the last five decades.

Keywords: Friedrich Engels; Karl Marx; Lenin; New China; religion
