    Abstract:
    This dataset was produced as part of the Research Workshop on China’s Local Gazetteers, Computerized Data Analysis and Visualization, held at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (MPIWG), Berlin, August 1-19, 2016. Fulltext data from 11 local gazetteers (fangzhi 方志) was processed to find instances of religious buildings (temples, monasteries, etc.) being either destroyed or reconstructed during the period from 1850 to 1949. A total of 423 entries are included, representing 584 instances of destruction or reconstruction. The data was produced as part of the three-year research project "The Chinese Buddhist Reconstruction, 1866-1966," funded by the Leverhulme Trust and the University of Edinburgh.
