Chine ancienne - L'armée immortelle de l'empereur Qin -

Qin Shi Huangdi, premier empereur de Chine, s'est taillé une réputation qui n'a rien pour faire rêver. Pourtant aujourd'hui c'est par millions que les touristes se rendent sur ses traces à 25 km de Xi'an, dans le centre-est du pays. C'est là en effet qu'il avait décidé de se faire construire un tombeau extraordinaire, capable de le protéger jusqu'à la fin des temps. Vingt quatre siècles plus tard, l'homme qui ne craignait que la mort n'est toujours pas réapparu, mais l'armée qui devait l'accompagner dans son voyage vers l'éternité a commencé à sortir doucement de terre.

Isabelle Grégor Un coup de pioche bien chanceux En cette année 1974, les paysans de la région de Xi'an commencent à s'inquiéter : il n'a pas assez plu, les récoltes sont en danger. La nouvelle remonte aux chefs du village, puis à la ville, puis à la capitale... et les archéologues arrivent enfin. Des guerriers à la pelle !

Now more than 2,000 years old, Xin Zhui, also known as Lady Dai, is a mummified woman of China’s Han dynasty (206 BC-220 AD) who still has her own hair, is soft to the touch, and has ligaments that still bend, much like a living person.

She is widely recognized as the best-preserved human mummy in history. Chinese Imperial Examination System. This is an article taken from our China in Focus magazine (2002) written by Justin Crozier.

Chinese Imperial Examination System

Justin Crozier examines how China's Imperial examination system and its modern remnant - the Eight Legged Essay and the Gao Kao - are unique attempts in world history to aim for a government of wisdom. In "On a Chinese Screen", notes from his encounters during a journey on the Yangzi in 1920, Somerset Maugham relays his conversation with a great Confucian philosopher. The Chinese philosopher, who has studied in Berlin and Oxford, concludes that all wisdom is to be found within the Confucian canon. In a bitter mood, he denounces the modernity that is sweeping China, and extols the Confucian system of old: “Do you know that we tried an experiment which is unique in the history of the world?

We sought to rule this great country not by force, but by wisdom. Ancient Chinese Civilization. La notion de «barbares » en Chine ancienne. Gianni Sofri - La Grande Muraglia cinese. The Silk Road. On the eastern and western sides of the continent, the civilisations of China and the West developed.

The Silk Road

The western end of the trade route appears to have developed earlier than the eastern end, principally because of the development of the the empires in the west, and the easier terrain of Persia and Syria. The Iranian empire of Persia was in control of a large area of the Middle East, extending as far as the Indian Kingdoms to the east. Trade between these two neighbours was already starting to influence the cultures of these regions. This region was taken over by Alexander the Great of Macedon, who finally conquered the Iranian empire, and colonised the area in about 330 B.C., superimposing the culture of the Greeks. Although he only ruled the area until 325 B.C., the effect of the Greek invasion was quite considerable. 1434: The Year a Magnificent Chinese Fleet Sailed to Italy and Ignited the Renaissance: Gavin Menzies: 9780061492181: Books -

Peinture chinoise. Chinese Character for Immortal: Xiān (仙) The Chinese character 仙 (xiān) refers to an immortal, a fairy, or a celestial or supernatural being.

Chinese Character for Immortal: Xiān (仙)

It is also used to refer to a genius or sage. 仙 (xiān) has two variants: the earliest recorded form 僊 (xiān), and the rarely used form 仚 (xiān). Happenstance. The golden light of Guanyin, the smoldering fires of a tea drying shed, callous invading armies in Fujian; they all share a common thread in Chinese tea folklore: chance.


Almost every version of every tea myth can place its catalyst in the realm of pure improbability, not the work or results of man. While many myths worldwide celebrate the determination of a single character, a linear narrative, and a result tied to intent, Chinese tea folklore does not.

There is a widespread public misperception, particularly among the New Age sector, that the Chinese word for “crisis” is composed of elements that signify “danger” and “opportunity.” I first encountered this curious specimen of alleged oriental wisdom about ten years ago at an altitude of 35,000 feet sitting next to an American executive. He was intently studying a bound volume that had adopted this notorious formulation as the basic premise of its method for making increased profits even when the market is falling. At that moment, I didn't have the heart to disappoint my gullible neighbor who was blissfully imbibing what he assumed were the gems of Far Eastern sagacity enshrined within the pages of his workbook. Now, however, the damage from this kind of pseudo-profundity has reached such gross proportions that I feel obliged, as a responsible Sinologist, to take counteraction.

Why Are Hundreds of Harvard Students Studying Ancient Chinese Philosophy? Picture a world where human relationships are challenging, narcissism and self-centeredness are on the rise, and there is disagreement on the best way for people to live harmoniously together. It sounds like 21st-century America. But the society that Michael Puett, a tall, 48-year-old bespectacled professor of Chinese history at Harvard University, is describing to more than 700 rapt undergraduates is China, 2,500 years ago. Puett's course Classical Chinese Ethical and Political Theory has become the third most popular course at the university.
