1 Diffused religion is conceived of as a religion having its theology, cults, and personnel so intimately diffused into one or more secular social institutions that they become a part of the concept, rituals, and structure of the latter, thus having no significant independent existence (see Yang 1961:294-295)

2 In Chinese tradition, since the Zhou dynasty, the “mandate of heaven” has meant that the ruler received his mandate directly from heaven, whereby his rule was legitimized and at the same time made subject to certain limitations. It was the task of the ruler to recognize the signs of heavenly wrath and heavenly approval and act accordingly (Fischer-Schreiber 1996: 184-185). Later this concept was extended to refer not only to change of dynasties, but also to become a benchmark for current events. Therefore, anything that happens in history can be judged from the criterion of “mandate of heaven,” that is, whether the action is legitimately endorsed by heaven or not.
