Chapter 5 deals with the general intellectual background where the ritual debates of the 1070s were rooted. It focuses on how Wang Anshi and his admirers in the name of New Learning scholars interpreted the Imperial Temple in their ritual commentaries. Among these scholars, the chapter devotes special attention to Wang Zhaoyu’s 王昭禹‎ and Chen Xiangdao’s 陳祥道‎ understandings of the Imperial Temple and categorizes them into two major conceptions of ritual relations between ancestors. The chapter also illustrates how Wang Anshi’s admirers as ritualists elaborated and revised Wang’s ritual theory, thereby contributing to the revival of ancient rituals under Emperor Huizong’s reign.
