TREASURE FROM THE PALACE-- AN IMPORTANT PRIVATE ASIAN COLLECTION, LOT 2536 - 2538
The two Discourses on the Four Morality were of immense significance during the late Qianlong period. As the emperor himself put it, "I wrote the Discourses as a form of self-admonishment and also to show the various ministers who present their poetry and encomia." It is clear that Qianlong emperor regarded the two Discourses more highly than the other poetry and essays that he wrote. According to official Qing records of the ceremonies celebrating his eightieth birthday, "The princes and the officials and students below them all followed, reverentially composed their imitations, and similarly bowed to read the emperor's two Discourses on the Four Morality." This shows the importance and far-reaching influence of the two texts.
