Description
Summary:This collection of five documents is about the Monguor and covers the time period from 1271-1949. The Monguor live in the Qilian Mountains and on the banks of the Huang and Datong rivers in Qinghai and Gansu provinces in northwestern China. Two of these documents are translations, one from French and the other from German. All are written by two Roman Catholic missionaries, Father Louis Schram, who was in the area from 1911-1922, and Father Dominik Schröder, from 1946-1949. Topics covered include Monguor origins; history and social organization; religious practices and beliefs, including the origin and historical development of the lamaseries; clan histories; and marriage practices.
