Traces of the Sage:
Monument, Materiality and the First Temple of Confucius
James A Flath
The Temple of Confucius, Kong Temple, is a remarkable testament to the durability of the core of Chinese culture from its glory days under the Ming and Qing dynasties, through the vicissitudes of war and revolution through to now being recognised as a Wold Heritage site. With the temple's history as his inspiration, Flath has written the most complete work on this monument, taking the reader through its rich history and out the other side into the twenty-first century where he observes the adaptations taking place in to preserve the temple for more generations to come. 290 pages.
