The thesis will analyze how Jizha Shrines established the legitimacy of their activities by interacting with both the refined and the popular, integrating folk beliefs with the worship of ancient sages and earning official and cultural identification. Of the above, the qualities of Six-Dynasty’s folk beliefs can be further induced.
