Unwritten Tales. Scrutinizing the Making of Religious Histories within a Chinese Muslim Community

Abstract : By comparing some writing processes which took place during different periods, this paper examines writing conditions of a religious history within a Chinese Muslim community. Our investigation on written materials, enlightened by oral history interviews, shows that untold accounts of miracles are at the core of what could or could not be told about that history. Moreover, this analysis demonstrates that from the 1980s onwards, accounts of mystical experience have mostly circulated in the shadows of the public sphere.
