Fengsu tongyi 風俗通義 (A Compendium of Popular Customs) is a Chinese text written by Ying Shao 應劭.
Bits of informationEdit
Ying Shao lived from 140-206. He once defeated a group of Yellow Turbans. The later years of his life he spent as a subordinate of Yuan Shao 袁紹. When Cao Cao 曹操 defeated the Yuan family, Ying Shao had already died.
Ying Shao was a writer and one of his works was the Fengsu tongyi. The Book of Sui mentions this book and says it has 31 juan 卷. Initially it may or may not have been larger, since the Book of Sui was finished during the Tang Dynasty (618–907) and by that time the work may no longer have been intact. Today only 10 juan of this work survive.
Of the lost chapters, the names are known through records by Su Song 蘇頌 and Lu Xinyuan 陸心源, but their order is unknown.
