Professor of History Thomas Wilson presented a paper titled “The Imperial and Ancestral Sacrifices of Confucius” at the International Symposium on the Rites to Confucius held at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul, South Korea. The conference was conducted entirely in the Chinese and Korean languages.

 

While at the conference, Wilson attended the spring sacrifices to Confucius conducted at Korea’s Confucius temple. The temple is located at Sungkyunkwan University, which was founded in 1398 under the Joseon dynasty (1392-1897). Wilson is pictured here with a 79th-generation descendant of Confucius, Kong Chuichang, and his wife Wu Shuoyin, at the spring sacrifice on May 11.
