Genghis Khan and His Sons
Religion and Government
During the Tang period, the government destroyed innumerable Buddhist temples and forced more than 260,000 nuns and monks to leave the temples and live a secular life.
From the Song dynasty to the end of the dynastic system, a new wave of Confucianism, called Neo-Confucianism, taught that the world is real and not an illusion. It became the center of the state government.

Landscape painting also reached an all time high during this period, as it was influenced by Daoism. Artists would go into mountains to find the Dao (Way) in nature.
Tang artisans created porcelain, which is a ceramic made of clay baked at a high temperature. The techniques used did not reach Europe until the eighteenth century.
