Abstract:

What attention has been paid to the issue of Daoist polemics has tended to focus on the conflict and competition of the Buddho-Daoist debates involving northern Celestial Masters during the Northern Wei 386-534 CE. recorded in 520, the Northern Zhou 557-588 in 570 and reoccurring in the Tang Dynasty with the debates of the Daoist Fu Yi in 621-23 and Li Zhongqing held in 626. However, as Erik Zurcher has noted these often contemptuous and accusatory anti-Buddhist polemics are surprisingly absent from early Daoist scriptures
