SUMMARY : 明朝政府與地方百姓對民間信仰的功能與意義存在不同認知。明代前中期,溫州地區的民間信仰發展繁盛,且多有悖於王朝國家的禮制規範。成化、弘治年間,溫州地方官員發起「信仰規範化」運動,通過遷址、合祀和更換信仰物件的方法,大力整飭民間祠祀。面對官府針對神明信仰的密集規整,民間百姓以「偽裝」和「敷衍」的方式應對,整改神明信仰的效果因此有欠理想。考察圍繞民間信仰整改的官民互動,是理解明代中期溫州地方社會形態的重要角度。

The Ming central government perceived folk religion on different terms comparing to the locals. In the mid-Ming era, folk religion developed quite well in Wenzhou, and the on-the-ground situation posted challenges to the Ming’s rules over ritual. During the Chenghua and Hongzhi reigns, Wenzhou officials attempted to regulate folk religion by relocating the temples, co-worshipping and changing the identity of local deities. Facing with such official attempts, the locals reacted with fake-cooperation and perfunctory response, hampering the whole imperial movement of religion regulation. The state-society interaction over folk religion regulation provides a lens through which to understand the power dynamics of mid-Ming Wenzhou.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
