“名教罪人”案試釋
A Critical Study of the Case of Mingjiao Zuiren

Language: Putonghua

錢名世(1666-1730)為清(1644-1912)初著名詩人,因贈詩年羹堯(1679-1726),被清世宗(愛新覺羅.胤禛,1678-1735,1722-1735在位)斥為“名教罪人”。世宗下令科舉出身的在京官員投詩刺諷,編為《名教罪人》一書,藉以警惕其他文人。然而,學者研究清代文字獄時,往往忽略此案,於此甚少著墨。講座將重新談論“名教罪人”案,試探此案與雍正一朝的文字獄的關係,並提出一些新見。

Qian Mingshi (1666-1730) was a prominent poet in the early Qing Dynasty (1644-1912). He was condemned by the Yongzheng Emperor (1678-1735, r. 1722-1735) as a Mingjiao zuiren (a renegade who went against the teachings of the sages [or, Confucianism]) for flattering Nian Gengyao (1679-1726), a famous military commander. Under orders from the Emperor, every degree holder (jinshi) serving in the central government wrote a poem ridiculing Qian, and the collection of these poems was entitled Mingjiao zuiren as a warning to their fellow literati.

Previous studies on the literary inquisitions of the Qing Dynasty have overlooked this important case, and little research has been conducted on it. This seminar will review the case of Qian Mingshi in an attempt to provide a new perspective on its relationship with the literary inquisition of the Yongzheng period.

ALL ARE WELCOME!
