Popular Religion in China: The Imperial Metaphor


Chinese popular religion has no name. It is not a religion of a book, nor is it the named religion of China - Daoism. It does include elements of Buddhism, imperial cults and Daoism, but it is identifiable with none of them. It is popular in the sense of being local and true of the China of the Han, where every place had or has its local cults and the festivals peculiar to them.
