Abstract: Prof Roel Sterckx, Joseph Needham Professor of Chinese History, Science and Civilisation and Chair of the Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Cambridge, examines how obligations related to sacrificial religion punctuated, in various ways, the public and private existence of people across most segments of pre-imperial and early imperial Chinese society. Prof Sterckx also explores how economic transactions drew, either symbolically or in real terms, on notions of religious obligation.
