Upon their incessant demands his successor, Hui-ti revoked in the year 191 A.D.the edict of Ch'in Shih Huang which prohibited the reading of Confucian classics.In the year 136 A.D.a special commission was named to search for manuscripts of these classics with a view to restoring their texts.Great zeal was scholars in searching for the lost writings, Texts of the Confucian.Canon were rescued from hiding-places in which they had been concealecl, editing committees were appointed; and great e:fforts were put forth to repair the injury sustained by literature and education at the hands of Ch'in Shih Huang.The scholars of the day expounded the teachings of Confucius as set forth in these texts, and although their explanations were set aside in the twelfth century when an entirely new set of interpret,ations became the accepted standard of students, it is due mostly to those early efforts that the Confucian Canon has exercised such a cleep and lasting infiuence over the minds of the Chinese people.In the miclst of this great renaissance, the art of making paper from the inner bark of trees was discovered by Tsai Lun.This new invention, together with the art, of writing characters with the camel's hair brush discovered under the reign of Ch'in Shih Huang, gave an ex:tra impetus to the new intellectual movement.
