The  Ming  dynasty  was  founded  in  1368  and  called  “Bright.”  The  emperor  was  
called  “The Son of Heaven,"  meaning  that  as  long  as  he  governed  rightly  he  would
  enjoy  the  support  of Heaven and Earth high and benevolent gods who were the parents  of  all  the  people.  But the Ming dynasty also relied on some very dark spiritual forces, as this talk will show.

Sarah Schneewind holds degrees from Cornell University, Yale University,  and Columbia University. She has published two books on the relations books on the relations between state and society during the Ming era (1368-1644): Community 
Schools and the State /n Ming China, which studies change over time in the local 
implementation of one central policy, and A Tale of Two Melons, which traces the way the first Ming emperor, his advisors, and others wrote about one lucky 
omen, and what it meant at the local level.
