Beschrijving Making Transcendents

By the middle of the third century BCE in China there were individuals who sought to become transcendents (xian) - deathless, godlike beings endowed with supernormal powers. Those who aspired to this status have traditionally been portrayed as hermit-like figures. This study offers a different view, arguing that transcendence should be seen as a religious role situated among other social roles.
