Monica Esposito, Facets of Qing Daoism, UniversityMedia, 2014

Though it has long been clear that modern Daoism has its roots in Daoist movements of the Qing dynasty (1644–1911), research on premodern Daoism had been largely neglected. Published in six languages (Italian, French, English, German, Chinese, and Japanese), Monica Esposito’s pioneering studies on Qing Daoism have been instrumental in kindling keen scholarly interest both in the West and in China and Japan.

This volume presents revised and augmented versions of five of Monica Esposito’s seminal articles. Three had originally been published in English, and the remaining two are her English versions of articles that had hitherto only been available in Japanese. In addition it contains a bibliography of all her publications.


Alessandro Dell’Orto, Racconti di templi e divinità. La religione popolare cinese tra spazi sociali e luoghi dell’aldilà (Collana Asia Orientale 13). Aracne Editrice, Roma, 2014

Il libro descrive le caratteristiche principali della religione popolare nell’ambito della cultura e della società cinese. Utilizzando materiale etnografico di prima mano, raccolto dall’autore in dodici anni di ricerche sul campo in Cina Popolare e Taiwan, il libro offre una prospettiva antropologica originale sulle modalità in cui i cinesi sono soliti rappresentare, nel contesto della pratica quotidiana della religione popolare, la relazione tra gli spazi sociali e i luoghi dell’aldilà.
