Literary Festival; ‘The Great Ming Code'

Weston Museum, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 1PR
Wed 27th February 2019 12:30PM

In 1368, Zhu Yuanzhang claimed to have obtained the Mandate of Heaven to rule China. In return, the first Ming Emperor had to follow Heavenly principle and preserve harmony between humans and supernatural spirits. A staunch Confucian, he enshrined this mission in the Great Ming Code.  To coincide with the launch of The Old Dragon’s Head, a supernatural thriller set during the Ming Dynasty, Dr. Justin Newland will discuss how the rule of law and custom reached into every aspect of people’s lives, even the Emperor’s.
