"Confucius himself was not much concerned with religion as such. He mentioned it only incidentally, and although he appeared to believe in heaven and ancestors, he spoke little about these beliefs. However, when Confucianism became the orthodox doctrine of the empire, religious functions were incorporated into it. Confucius, along with his ancestors and his famous followers, became objects of worship and veneration. Confucian temples were erected all over the empire, tablets to COnfucius and his followers were placed within these temples, and sacrifices and rituals were performed before these tablets and elsewhere. "
Confucianism China - - - - 1911 Welty, Paul Thomas. The Asians: Their Heritage and Their Destiny (Revised Edition). Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Co. (1966); pg. 148. "Soon after the fall of the Ch'in Dynasty the Confucian philosophy was established as the official doctrine of the imperial government (early in the Han Dynasty, 200 B.C.-220 A.D.). Only with the destruction of the old educational system early in the twentieth century did the cult of Confucius become weakened. Confucianism lost its favored position with the institution of the Republic of China in 1911, when a mixture of Confucianism and Western liberal thought, as propounded by Sun Yat-sen, the father of modern China, became the official political theory of the state. "
Confucianism China - - - - 1928 Crim, Keith (ed.). The Perennial Dictionary of World Religions. San Francisco: Harper Collins (1989). Reprint; originally pub. as Abingdon Dictionary of Living Religions, 1981; pg. 191. "The twentieth century has seen significant changes in the outward authority of the Confucian tradition. In 1905 the imperial examination system, the sytem whose source was the official Neo-Confucian orthodoxy, was abolished, ending the status of the Confucian tradition and the Neo-Confucian orthodoxy as the avenue of access to government service. Sacrifice to Confucius in the Confucian temple terminated in 1928 and thereafter Confucianism ceased to be an official religion. "
Confucianism China - - - - 1972 Kinmond, William. The First Book of Communist China. New York: Franklin Watts (1972, revised edition); pg. 75. "'Confucianism' is a Western name for the teachings of Kung Chiao, or Confucius, who lived in 551-479 B.C. Although it is not a religion, it still influences the Chinese way of life. It is not possible to derive any spiritual comfort from the teachings of Confucius, as it is from genuine religious beliefs. It is a philosophy and a system of ethics. Respect paid to Confucius is unlike that paid to a deity or a religious prophet; it is paid to a great sage whose teachings promote peace and order in society and encourage the individual to live a moral life. "
Confucianism China - - - - 1993 Faux, Marian (ed.). The New York Public Library Sudent's Desk Reference. New York: Prentice Hall (1993); pg. 271.

Confucianism China - - - - 1998 Rutherford, Scott (ed.) East Asia. London: Apa Publications (1998); pg. 43. "While Laozi was active in the south of China, Confucius lived in the north of the country. For him, too, Dao and de are central concepts. For more than 2,000 years, the ideas of Confucius (551-479 BC) have influenced Chinese culture, which in turn sculpted the worldview of neighboring lands such as Korea, Japan and Southeast Asia. It is debatable whether Confucianism is a religion in the strictest sense. But Confucius was worshipped as a deity, although he was only officially made equal to the heavenly gods by an imperial edict in 1906. (Up until 1927, many Chinese offered him sacrifices.) "
Confucianism China - - - - 1998 Rutherford, Scott (ed.) East Asia. London: Apa Publications (1998); pg. 44. "Confucianism is, in a sense, a religion of law and order. Just as the universe is dictated by the world order, and the sun, moon and stars move according to the laws of nature, so a person, too, should live within a framework of world order. "
Confucianism China - - - - 1998 Stack, Peggy Fletcher. A World of Faith. USA: Signature Books (1998); pg. 13. "Confucianism... Today in China many study Confucianism, leaning the basics of good behavior and thinking.

"Confucianism, though it has no institutional presense in Japan, has played a major role in the evolution of Japanese religion and in particular the character of modern Shinto. While Confucian philosophy, especially of the shushi variety, became the state orthodoxy of Tokugawa Japan a nationwide Buddhist parash system (tera-uke) was simultaneously established to eradicate Christianity...

"The Juche religion is a significant departure from the Korean people's strong adherence to the teachings of the Chinese philosopher Confucius (555-479 B.C.). Juche doctrine maintains that Juche is superior to all other systems of human thought, including Marxism and Confucianism. Juche anti-Confucian policies and propaganda have reduced Confucian influence on North Koreans over the last few decades. Unlike Buddhism, Chondokyo, and Christianity, there does not seem to be an official North Korean Confucian organization. Nevertheless, some Confucian teachings, such as those that emphasize subservience to authority and social harmony, have been adopted by the Juche religion to add to its legitimacy. "

Confucius--or Kongja, as the Koreans refer to him--was never a breaker of traditions but a conservative reactionary... Today Confucianism thrives more in Korea than in any other nation, and though Confucianism has been greatly discredited since the turn of the century by both foreign and domestic intellectual movements, its basic values and premises still dominate the lives of all Koreans. Ancestor worship continues to be practised much as it has been for more than 1,000 years. In Korea, even an 'old fool' is first and foremost an elder. To rebel against the world of an elder is to invite social censure--a conservative and powerful force which is ver effective in Korea's small and closed society. "
