This chapter examines the history of Chan Buddhism in terms of transmission records and factional motives contained in the Zutang ji or the Patriarch's Hall Anthology. The rediscovery of the Zutang ji underscores the power and aspirations of regional Chan movements during the Five Dynasties period because its text is a clear forerunner to the Chuandeng lu, and anticipates many of the features of classical Chan. This chapter discusses a hypothesis related to the development of the Zutang ji in three stages.
