Bokenkamp explores a group of Daoist women of eighth and ninth century China — tracing their origin to Xie Ziran 謝自然 and Han Ziming 韓自明 — who became a group of Daoism priestesses, developing their own lineage and rituals, attracting the intense interest of the imperial palace, literati, and the capital's elite.
