A Translation and Study of the Earliest Surviving Daoist Scripture: The Demon Statutes of Lady Blue

This project completes the first translation into any Western language of a seminal Daoist scripture, the Demon Statutes of Lady Blue (Nüqing guilü ????, HY 790, hereafter Demon Statutes). The rituals, moral precepts, and prophecies of the Demon Statutes open a window onto the earliest decades of the Daoist faith and affords us a glimpse of this world religion at its formative stage. An integral translation of this text is accompanied by a study of the intellectual and social milieu. The research will be conducted over an eight-month period, at the Institute for Daoist Research at Sichuan University, sponsored by Professor Li Gang.
