Founded in 2000, this online encyclopaedia provides—in a clearly arranged way—information on a wide range of topics in Chinese history, literature, religions, and philosophy. It draws to a great extent upon Chinese-language secondary sources and thus gives access to information rarely found in Western books. This is particularly interesting for those not able or not brave enough to read Chinese. The reader may either use the search function, or browse contents via the navigation tools.
The texts include Chinese characters (traditional type) and use the Hanyu pinyin transcription, barring a few conventional exceptions.
The editor would like to apologize for any errors or misprints in the texts, which may occur frequently because English is not my mother tongue. I would be deeply grateful for any hints by my readers pointing at errors in typing, language, and—of course—content.
