Affiliation and Transmission in Daoism
A Berlin Symposium
Herausgegeben von Reiter, Florian C.
Considering the length of the Taoist history and its many ups and downs, the vicissitudes of administrative and social changes and challenges, the theme of affiliation and transmission in Daoism has a superb importance. What were the conditions of transmission and affiliation? What did it mean to become a disciple and member of an affiliation, taking into account changing times and locations?
Such themes and related questions were discussed on the International Symposium on Affiliation and Transmission in Daoism, Berlin in June 2011 and are now presented as scientific articles in this volume.
With contributions by Florian C. Reiter, Terry Kleeman, John Lagerwey, Lü Pengzhi, Stephen Bokenkamp, Hsieh Shuwei, Chang Chaojan, Tam Wai-lun, Paul R. Katz, Lee Fongmao, Lin Wei-Ping and Hsieh Tsung-hui.
