This webinar introduces Advancing Daoism: Epigraphic and Archeological Materials as Sources for Daoist Lived Religion 道教考古石刻研究項目. This multi-year project, funded by the Luce Foundation, aims at advancing the study of Daoism through the use of archaeological and epigraphic materials, including statues, stele inscriptions, cave shrines, temple inscriptions, and inscribed tomb epitaphs. The speakers will introduce and use these understudied material sources to augment canonical textual sources in understanding the social history of Daoism and to explore developments and changes in ritual practices that are often invisible in written records.
