Correcting Chapter 6 Study Guide, Section 1 This will help you on the test to do well! 1. Please take out a different color pen than you worked in to correct your work. 2. You may also want to use that pen to underline or a highlighter to mark what parts of your answer I mention as very important.
Question 1 Q: (Use the key term “Period of Disunion” properly in your answer.) Describe what happened to China following the collapse of the Han dynasty (pg. 166)? A: After the Han dynasty collapsed the empire split into rival kingdoms ruled by military leaders. This period is known as the Period of Disunion, due to all the war and disorder that occurred at the time.

Additionally, and more importantly, during the Sui dynasty Yang Jian conquered the south, unified China, and helped to restore order to China.
Question 4 Q: (Short Answer) How do historians view the Tang dynasty and why (pg. 167)?
A: Historians view the Tang dynasty as the golden age of Chinese civilization for many reasons. First, during the dynasty China grew to include much of eastern Asia, as well as parts of central Asia. In addition, during the Tang dynasty China was unified through programs such as reform of the military, creation of law codes, and a land reform policy (which allowed people to work and benefit from a piece of land appropriate with the amount of work they could get done). Finally culture flourished during this time period, with many of its finest poets writing during the time period. These are the reasons why historians view the Tang dynasty as the golden age of Chinese civilization. (A golden age means a period of wealth or great achievement).
Question 5 1.What was unique about the Tang dynasty (pg. 168)?A: The Tang dynasty was unique because during it Empress Wu ruled, the only woman ever to rule China. She was very strict and not well liked, but respected for the stability and prosperity she brought to China during her rule.
Question 6 Q: During what period did Buddhism develop into a major religion in China and why? (pg. 168)A: Buddhism developed into a major religion in China in the Period of Disunion. Many people turned to Buddhism at the time because its teachings that people can escape suffering and achieve a state of peace were comforting.
Question 7 Q: What were some reasons why Buddhism spread (pg. 168)? A: Buddhism spread for several reasons. One reason that is spread was because many wealthy people donated land and money to Buddhist temples. Additionally, Chinese missionaries spread the religion to Japan, Korea, and other Asian lands. Finally, during a period of time known as the Age of Buddhism, Buddhism had a large affect on art, literature, and architecture in China. These are the reasons why Buddhism was able to successfully spread.
Question 8 Q: Why do you think that the Tang emperor launched a campaign against Buddhism (pgs /Infer)?A: Maybe the Tang emperor felt that his rule might be threatened by Buddhism since it had such a large effect on the culture and society of China.
