  • Beliefs and practices in sectarian baojuan
  • Late examples in baojuan of three rebirths and precious account of Mulian

  • Conclusion.
The story of Mulian rescuing his mother's soul from hell has evolved as a narrative over several centuries in China, especially in the baojuan (precious scrolls) genre. This genre, a prosimetric narrative in vernacular language, first appeared around the fourteenth century and endures as a living tradition. In exploring the evolution of the Mulian story, Rostislav Berezkin illuminates changes in the literary and religious characteristics of the genre. He also examines material from other forms of Chinese literature and from modern performances of baojuan, tracing their transformation from tools of Buddhist proselytizing to sectarian propaganda to folk ritualized storytelling. Ultimately, he reveals the special features of baojuan as a type of performance literature that had its foundations in multiple literary traditions.

  • Beginning to read : some methods and background
  • Reading medically : novel illnesses, novel cures
  • Vernacular curiosities : medical entertainments and memory
  • Diseases of sex : medical and literary views of contagion and retribution
  • Diseases of Qing : medical and literary views of depletion
  • Contagious texts : inherited maladies and the invention of tuberculosis
  • Chinese character glossary.
By examining the dynamic interplay between discourses of fiction and medicine, Novel Medicine demonstrates how fiction incorporated, created, and disseminated medical knowledge in China, beginning in the sixteenth century. Critical readings of fictional and medical texts provide a counterpoint to prevailing narratives that focus only on the "literati" aspects of the novel, showing that these texts were not merely read, but were used by a wide variety of readers for a range of purposes. The intersection of knowledge-fictional and real, elite and vernacular-illuminates the history of reading and daily life and challenges us to rethink the nature of Chinese literature.

"The Culture of the Quake is first and foremost an exploration of Taishō-era narrative fiction. Every major film studio produced earthquake films, and authors from I-novelists to modernists, proletarian writers to popular fiction writers wrote something o the earthquake. In every case pre-existing attitudes toward their work shaped the way these people represented the earthquake, and yet the overwhelming destruction and mass suffering also posed particular challenges in representation."

  • Invention of the novel: from stage act and temple ritual to literary text
  • King Wu's sacred history: the conquest of inimical gods
  • Demonic warfare during the Yuan: thunder ritual, unruly spirits, and local militias
  • Demonic warfare during the Ming: the emperor and his Daoist warriors
  • The order of the Ming novel: hierarchies of spirits and gods.
Revealing the fundamental continuities that exist between vernacular fiction and exorcist, martial rituals in the vernacular language, Mark Meulenbeld argues that a specific type of Daoist exorcism helped shape vernacular novels in the late Ming dynasty (1368u1644). Focusing on the once famous novel Fengshen yanyi (oCanonization of the Godso), the author maps out the general ritual structure and divine protagonists that it borrows from much older systems of Daoist exorcism. By exploring how the novel reflects the specific concerns of communities associated with Fengshen yanyi and its ideology, Meulenbeld is able to reconstruct the cultural sphere in which Daoist exorcist rituals informed late imperial onovels.o He first looks at temple networks and their religious festivals. Organized by local communities forterritorial protection, these networks featured martial narratives about the powerful and heroic deeds of the gods. He then shows that it is by means of dramatic practiceslike ritual, theatre, and temple processions that divine acts were embodied and brought to life. Much attention is given to local militias who embodied odemon soldierso aspart of their defensive strategies. Various Ming emperors actively sought the support of these local religious networks and even continued to invite Daoist ritualists so asto efficiently marshal the forces of local gods with their local demon soldiers into the official, imperial reserves of military power. This unusual book establishes once and for all the importance of understanding the idealized realities of literary texts within a larger context of cultural practice and socio-political history. Of particular importance is the ongoing dialog with religious ideology that informs these diff erent discourses. MeulenbeldAEs book makes a convincing case for the need to debunk the retrospective reading of China through the modern, secular Western categories of oliterature, o osociety, o and opolitics.o He shows that this disregard of religious dynamics has distorted our understanding of China and that oreligiono cannot be conveniently isolated from scholarly analysis.

  • Contexts
  • A poetic religion full of paradoxes
  • Martyrs, apostates, and the modern Japanese subject
  • Resurrection as zombie revolution
  • From counter-orientalism to queer spirituality.
Christians are a tiny minority in Japan, less than one percent of the total population. Yet Christianity is ubiquitous in Japanese popular culture. From the giant mutant oangelso of the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise to the Jesus-themed cocktails enjoyed by customers in TokyoAEs Christon cafU, Japanese popular culture appropriates Christianity in both humorous and unsettling ways. By treating the Western religion as an exotic cultural practice, Japanese demonstrate the reversibility of cultural stereotypes and force reconsideration of global cultural flows and East-West relations. Of particular interest is the repeated reappearance in modern fiction of the so-called oChristian centuryo of Japan (1549u1638), the period between the arrival of the Jesuit missionaries and thelast Christian revolt before the final ban on the foreign religion. Literary authors as different as Akutagawa Ry?nosuke, End? Sh?saku, Yamada F?tar?, and Takemoto Novala, as well as film directors, manga and anime authors, and videogame producers have all expressed their fascination with the lives and works of Catholic missionaries and Japanese converts and produced imaginative reinterpretations of the period. In Holy Ghosts , Rebecca Suter examines the popularity of the Christian century in modern Japanese fiction and reflects on the role of crosscultural representations. Since the opening of the ports in the Meiji period, JapanAEs relationship with Euro-American culture has oscillated between a drive towards Westernization and an antithetical urge to oreturn to Asia.o Exploring the twentiethcenturyAEs fascination with the Christian century enables Suter to reflect on modern JapanAEs complex combination of Orientalism, self- Orientalism, and Occidentalism.
