    Tour around China 2012: The Confucius Temple in Beijing was built in 1302 and was enlarged during the Ming and Qing dynasties. The temple contains stone tablets recording the names of many generations of scholars who passed the Imperial Examination, and stone steles containing the Thirteen Confucian Classics. This movie records a visit to the temple in July 2012. I made the 1080/60p movie from stills and video clips taken with my Panasonic SD800 camcorder and edited with iMovie at 60fps on an iMac as described on my webpage at ianperegian.com.

                    The Republic of China, commonly known as Taiwan, is an island of 24 million people about 160km off the coast of China. When the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) lost mainland China to the Communist Party of China in the Chinese Civil War following World War II, its government relocated to Taiwan. Taiwan became the refuge of those who claimed to represent all of China. While the government of Taiwan has been democratized over the years, the possibility of Taiwan becoming a truly separate state from China has heightened mainland Chinese military and diplomatic pressure on the islanders. The tension between the two countries colors most of the political life in Taiwan, and attempts at declaring formal independence are continually met with opposition by mainland Chinese authorities. Despite this tension, Taiwan has survived politically and there has been significant economic growth. The principal city, Taipei, with a population of 2.9 million, is the political, economic and financial center of Taiwan. It has a thriving entertainment scene and commercial and economic growth; it has become a modern international metropolis. Taiwan is a secular state with freedom of religion. The majority of the population follows a unique blend of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. Christian growth has been slow, with an estimated 6% of the islander claiming to follow Christ. Prayer is needed to address nominalism and the great need for more pastors and Bible teachers, including adequate giving levels within the church to support them.

                      April 14th, 2011 | For more on this event, please visit: http://bit.ly/id72Fy Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs | Georgetown University The last several years have seen an official revival of Confucianism in China. President Hu Jintao has developed the idea of a "Harmonious Socialist Society," drawing on Confucian ideas. The government has set up a network of cultural Confucius Institutes around the world. And earlier this year a statue of Confucius was erected in Tiananmen Square. How extensive is the Confucian revival and what are its contours? What is its cultural, religious, and political significance? Dr. Liu Yi, a postdoctoral fellow at the Berkley Center and Executive Director of Center for Study of Religion and Society at Shanghai University, addressed these questions. Yi Liu is a postdoctoral fellow at the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs for the 2010-11 academic year. He is a lecturer in Department of History and the Executive Director of Center for Study of Religion and Society at Shanghai University. Dr. Liu's research and publications focus on theories of religion and globalization, Christianity in China, and religious freedom in modern China, as well as issues of religion, globalization and global governance. His doctoral dissertation, Religion and Politics in Global Context, is forthcoming with Shanghai University Press and he recently published an article about national identity and Chinese Christianity in the journal Studies in World Christianity. A native of the North China countryside, Dr. Liu received a PhD in religious studies from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. http://berkleycenter.georgetown.edu
