Tao-tsang : Traveaux d'IndexCitation:
The Daoist canon, Daozang, is a key resource for the study of Chinese culture. It contains a wealth of materials ranging from texts and commentaries to the Daoist classics such as Laozi and Zhuangzi to protocols of visions, from biographies of Daoists to descriptions of Daoist temples, from cosmological speculation to ritual performance and magical spells. [...] During the 1980s, Professor Schipper assembled a group of young scholars [... and] guided them in developing a subject index for the entire Daozang. This would allow scholars to find not just the titles of works in the Daozang but all references to a given person, god, object, temple, ritual, text, spell etc. in this entire gigantic collection. [...] This subject index of about 8 000 pages was reproduced in a set of 37 microfiches. [...] Professor Schipper gracefully consented to our [Institute of Chinese Studies, Heidelberg University - ed.] suggestion to put this subject index online. [...] Following a suggestion by Professor Schipper, we have added a further research tool to the index, the index to the titles of the Daozang, Daozang suoyin, Shanghai, Shanghai shudian 1996, which is long out of print.http://www.sino.uni-heidelberg.de/database/daozang-idx/ more Language: chi Chinese, eng English
Chinese Text Project = 中國哲學書電子化計劃, Zhongguo zhexueshu dianzihua jihuaDescription:
The Chinese Text Project is a web-based e-text system designed to present early Chinese texts, particularly those relating to Chinese philosophy, in a well-structured and properly cross-referenced manner, making the most of the electronic medium to aid in the study and understanding of these texts. The site includes full-text search functions, English translations, parallel passage data, an online library of early editions, and many other unique features.
The texts are segmented into the two main sections "Pre-Qin & Han" and "Post-Han". The first section is further sub-divided into Confucianism, Mohism, Daoism, Legalism, School of Names, School of the Military, Mathematics, Miscellaneous Schools, Histories, Ancient Classics, Etymology, Chinese Medicine, Excavated texts. The second section groups the texts according to time era.
The platform also offers a dictionary with direct links to scanned editions of the Kangxi and Guangyun dictionaries and provides page references to the character explanation in the Hanyu da zidian, Cihai and Karlgren's Grammatica Serica Recensa. Also very useful is the inclusion of the cross references between character variants which rely on the mappings included in the Unicode standard and those suggested by the Kangxi dictionary.http://ctext.org/ more Language: chi Chinese, eng English
