By our rites of worship
"By our rites of worship; latter-day sait views on ritual in scripture, history and practice", is a title of a book edited by Daniel L. Belnap, published by the Religious Studies Center. The reason I am writing a short article about is is because my humble calligraphy work is one of the few illustrations in this book. Last year I had trhe pleasure to be contacted by Ph.D. Michael Ing, who is currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Religious Studies, Indiana University. He specializes mainly in Confucianism and Chinese thought. He asked me if I could write a calligraphy work for his book. I was quite thrilled.
Below photo shows calligraphy of the character 禮 in early clerical script, known in Japanese as korei (古隷, lit. ancient clerical).
There is one more publication of his in which you can see my calligraphy art on the book cover, titled *The Dysfunction of Ritual in Early Confucianism*, published by Oxford University Press.
