Everyone knows about burning books and pitching Confucians, but some of them are not true. Today, let's talk about the true burning of books and scholars in history, and restore the true burning of books and scholars in history.
First of all, burning books
Now when it comes to history and civilization, I always like to take up the matter of burning books. Qin Shihuang's grandfather did it. However, the scale of burning books by Qin Shihuang is relatively large, but unlike the textbooks, except for Qin's books, other books have been burned. At the prime minister's suggestion, at that time, the first emperor of Qin only burned poems, books and hundreds of languages, as well as the private history of six countries, that is, the history of the princes. In addition, the books of divination, medical treatment, planting, and the works of the pre-Qin scholars were not burned. From a ruler's point of view, this is not a big mistake.
Talk about "pitching Confucians"
It's a matter of heaven forbidding that the first emperor of Qin should pit the Confucians. "Burning books" and "pitching Confucians" are two things that are not close to each other. They do not mean one thing. "Pitching Confucians" is done one year after "burning books". "Pitching Confucians" means burying Confucians alive, saying that they are disrespectful of their unjust State Administration, but in fact, this is not the case. In fact, they were "Hou" and "Lu" liars, who fooled Qin Shihuang into saying, "emperor, we can find the elixir of immortality." In this way, the first emperor of Qin believed that he would give these two swindlers a lot of gold, silver, jewelry and boats, and let them go overseas to find the elixir. Before escaping, the two swindlers spread rumors about the injustice of the first emperor of Qin.
It's a long time to go looking for the elixir with the boy and the girl before. It makes Qin Shihuang angry and feels cheated. So he looks for the two swindlers' peers. Qin Shihuang thinks that the two swindlers' peers are not good people either. After finding them, they bury them alive. This history is called "pitching scholars". So who are these people captured by the first emperor of Qin Dynasty? It is clear in the historical records that they are Fang Shushi, not Confucian scholars. Fang magicians are mainly engaged in occupation and sorcery. The first batch of Fang Shushi who were arrested and annotated probably had more than 460 people, one of whom was buried alive; the second batch of Fang Shushi who were arrested were not buried alive, but were sent away. The second batch of Fang Shushi was more or less Confucianist, but the main target of attack was Fang Shushi, because the year before "pitching Confucianist" burned books, which were poetry and history. In addition to that meeting, they thought that all the scholars were Confucianists, so they took it for granted This is the true burning of books and scholars in history.
