(p.93) Chapter 4 Ritual as an Expression of Chinese-Islamic Simultaneity
Rectifying God's Name

James D. Frankel

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter focuses on Liu Zhi's arguably most famous and influential work, the Tianfang dianli—which, together with the other books of the Tianfang trilogy, was meant to operate as a comprehensive, systematic, and holistic view of Islam. It asserts that the Tianfang dianli, and other Han Kitāb works like it, not only exhibit the simultaneity of their authors, but also of their audience. In addition, the chapter looks more closely at his specific usage of the concept of ritual as a common foundation of both Confucian morality and social order and of Islamic piety. Ritual was after all the backbone of state protocol and government procedure.

Keywords:   Tianfang dianli, ritual, Confucian morality, Confucian social order, Islamic piety, Chinese-Islamic simultaneity
