This project aims to explore the formation and organization of the imperially endorsed Daoist pantheon as shown in the frontispiece of the Daoist Canon printed in 1447, and investigate the changes in conception and imagery of the orthodox Daoist pantheon through studying visual variations among different editions of the frontispiece from 1447 to the present day. Funding comes from RGC General Research Fund.
