Mourning regulations in Ordos, 1909

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  24 December 2009

Extract

In 1961, the late Reverend Antoine Mostaert (1881–1971) published a fairly long document, namely the announcement to the Mongols of the Banner Otoγ of the death of the Emperor and the Empress Dowager in the winter of 1908, and a number of regulations for the required period of official mourning (‘Annonce de la mort de l'Empereur Te-tsoung et de l'Impératrice douairière Ts'eu-hi aux Mongols de la bannière d'Otoγ (Ordos)’, in Herbert Franke (ed.), Studia Sino-Altaica: Festschrift für Erich Haenisch zum 80. Geburtstag, Wiesbaden, 1961, 140–55).

1 The text has only či, but in a more recent handwriting, Father Mostaert added ‘Čimeddorji’ with a question-mark. In spite of this question-mark there is no doubt about the identification. Čimeddorjˇi is mentioned more than once in the documents from Otoγ. The reference to his guardianship is owing to the fact that he was one of the regents administering Banner affairs during the minority years of the prince of Otoγ. Cf. Mostaert, , ‘Annonce’, p. 145Google Scholar, n. 1.
