Stanford University Press

This chapter presents the fourteen extant sources that belong, or may be deemed to be very closely related, to the Taiqing corpus in its expanded version. These sources are divided into six groups, consisting of the three main original scriptures, the two early waidan texts found in the Shangqing corpus, other works on the Nine Elixirs, early related texts, Tang anthologies, and the nineteen-chapter commentary to the Nine Elixirs. These sources are known to have existed around the seventh or the eighth century that are entirely or partly preserved in the present-day Daoist Canon.

Keywords:   Chinese alchemy, Taiqing texts, Daoist Canon, waidan texts, scriptures, Shanqing corpus, Nine Elixirs
