How to use the Timeline
This Timeline is a visual representation in linear time of the modern history of the religious sites studied in the project “Religious Diversity in Modern Sichuan”; aspects and important moments in the premodern history of the sites appear in their descriptions. The present Timeline is at an initial stage only, updates will be added regularly as the research continues.
You can either use the toggle arrows to navigate it, or click on individual sites. Sites are represented according to their position in modern history and religious affiliation.
The zoom in and zoom out buttons on the left will help you to compress or space out the names – if you want fewer names and dates on your screen, zoom out, if you want to see the eras togehter, zoom in. Use the arrow below the zoom controls to go back to the introduction slide.
