Le Bureau de l'histoire en Chine sous la dynastie des Tang (618-907)

Abstract : History was in classical China a major discipline ; it was conceived as a mirror for the princes and as a guide for civil servants. Since the second century B.C., the historiographical tradition has been unbroken, and every dynasty devoted itself to the task of writing the history of the precedent one. The development of this official historiography underwent a turning point at the beginning of Tang Dynasty (618-907), when emperor Taizong (r. 626-649) created the Institute for Historiography (shiguan), an institution located inside the Imperial Palace, the mission of which was controlling and supervising the writing of History.
