Emperor Xuanzong's Leisure Activities in the Example of Ming Imperial Palace Collections

Xu Bingbin;  
Zhu Zhanji,also known as Emperor Xuanzong,was one of the few versatile emperors of the Ming dynasty.The same is true to his leisure activities,which involved both literary and sportive elements.On the one hand,his passion for cricket fighting and falcons resulted in heavy burden on his people and the vassal state.On the other,he was good at realizing political implications in leisure activities,experiencing the way of nature and inspiring his own philosophy of governance.The current author studies both historical objects and documents to reveal Zhu's leisure activities in the imperial palace and their social influences.In general,Xuanzong was self-controlled in doing these activities and his philosophy of governance had laid firm foundation for social stability and prosperity.Nevertheless,comments in his personal writings about these activities are largely result of his extensive reading or seem very casual.Therefore,they should not be overestimated.
