Kong Temple and the Modern Politics of Culture

(p.126) 5 Kong Temple and the Modern Politics of Culture
Traces of the Sage

James A. Flath

University of Hawai'i Press

Chapter 5 considers how, in the 20th century, Kong Temple became subject to a modern political discourse. Where it was once oriented toward the past, the temple was now situated within the political and ‘scientific’ space of the nation. Yet the temple continued to create difficulties for those who wished to preserve it, and opportunities for those who desired to destroy the ‘old order’.
