The Golden Age

  • Giulio MagliEmail author


The Tang and the Song periods are the “golden age” of imperial China under many respects, including art, architecture, and science. The sacred landscape of the Tang mausoleums, based on natural mountains but endowed with spectacular Sacred Ways, and that of the—less spectacular, but fascinating—Northern Song mausoleums are analysed. The curious, peculiar features of the imperial Necropolis of the Western Xia dynasty are also described.
