Among Chinese intellectual history, there were four scholastic lines of Shijing (Book of Odes)
commentaries in the Han times: Lu, Qi, Han, and Mao. Among them only Mao’s commentary
survives. Wang Chong’s Lunheng was written at the beginning of the Eastern Han when all the four
scholastic lines, the Lu, Qi, Han and Mao, were occupying or had occupied the official position. This
paper is a study of selected citations of the Shijing found in the Lunheng. They are compared with
Shijing-related writings from the Han period. The nature of former scholars’ research on Lunheng’s Shijing
scholastic lines will be discussed. Furthermore, the method to analyse the scholastic lines
of the Shijing will be introduced.

Keywords: Shijing, Boof of Odes, Lunheng, Han Scholastic Controversy
