Archaeological Discoveries and the Writing of the Yi Jing, China's Classic of Changes

On the basis of several important archaeological discoveries made over the last thirty years, I will explore how the Yi Jing, China's Classic of Changes, came to be written and used over the first millennium B.C. . . . The Yi Jing is generally recognized as one of the great classics of world literature, and so a study of its origins should be of wide interest. The newly unearthed manuscripts now make it possible to explore those origins, and to show not only how this one text developed, but also to show much about the religious life of China's first millennium B.C.
