Jin Huidi qiju zhu 晉惠帝起居注 (Diaries of Activities and Repose of Emperor Hui of Jin) is a Chinese text written by Lu Ji 陸機.[2]

Bits of informationEdit

Sima Zhong was emperor of the Jin Dynasty from 290 to 306. This text is about him during his reign as Emperor Hui of Jin. Information about this text is scarce.

Some information can be found in texts of the Sui and Tang Dynasties, though neither dynasty ever had this text. The Sui Dynasty does say the Liang Dynasty collection had 2 juan of it, which had since been lost. However:

The Book of Sui does have a Yuankang qiju zhu 元康起居注 in 1 juan.
The Old Book of Tang has a Yongping qiju zhu 永平起居注 in 8 juan, compiled by Li Kuei 李軌. The New Book of Tang agrees with the Old Book of Tang, but does not mention a compiler.

Yuankang and Yongping were reignperiods during the time of Emperor Hui of Jin, and these books are also "diaries of activities and repose", like Emperor Hui's.

It appears that Li Kuei was associated with Lu Ji in the compilation of these official diaries, though we cannot tell how the books were divided or how the chapters were arranged.[1]
