Riassunto: Society and the Supernatural in Song China is at once a meticulous examination of spirit-possession and exorcism in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries and a social history of the full panoply of China's religious practices and practitioners at the moment when she was poised to dominate the world economy. Although the Song dynasty (960-1276) is often identified with the establishment of Confucian orthodoxy, Edward Davis demonstrates the renewed vitality of the dynasty's Taoist, Buddhist, and local religious traditions.
Sinossi: This work is an examination of spirit possession and exorcism in the 12th and 13th centuries and a social history of the full panoply of China's religious practices and practitioners at the moment when she was poised to dominate the world economy.
