Still image from Chinese Religions

China has a wide range of religions and belief systems, such as Confucianism, Taoism, ancestor worship, Buddhism, and in a smaller proportion, Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. Professor Hans Kung, a well-known Western theologian, seeks to understand these religions of China, as well as the holistically oriented practices of traditional Chinese medicine and tai chi. Discusses the history of these religions and examines related aspects: ideograms (Chinese writing), fortune-telling, sacred mountains, superstition, respect for age, and acupuncture.
