Li Chi (Records of Rituals). One of the Confucian Classics. Among the several collections of texts relating to secular and religious rituals, and the codes of behaviour for the privileged classes in general, the Li Chi is richest in material of a philosophical nature. The Li Chi is a voluminous anthology, its component texts are undatable, but presumably mostly come from the last few cents. of the Chou dynasty (?1111–1256 BCE) and possibly in some cases from early Han (2nd cent. BCE).
