Abstract

This Article Emphasizes the Idea That in China the worship of the dead has traditionally been identified with the worship of the ancestors. Both belong within the context of filial piety, one of the chief virtues sponsored by Confucianism. The connection between the Traditional Chinese family and the worship of the dead was very strong since it was the family that had the responsibility to carry out these rites. At the same time the worship itself copied the structure of the traditional family and its hierarchical system. Another interesting aspect of the worship of the dead in China is its persistence. The rites have remained largely unchanged in spite of the radical modifications in the economic and political system since the foundation of the People's Repúblic.
