Cover Illustration Volume One:
The Dongyue Temple
北京東�½廟
(lit. “Beijing Eastern Peak Temple”)
is a Daoist temple in the Chaoyang district, Beijing, founded in 1319. The temple offers a view of the
various “Departments” of the Daoist supernatural realm, with their Hell bureaucracy, terrifying spir-
its and grotesque demonic government officials. Although the stories of
Zibuyu
are obviously an
elaboration of popular beliefs by a member of the élite, they are inspired by such religious scenes.
