Why did Chongzhen worship Zhu Yuanzhang with such a simple offering?

How much do you know about Chongzhen 's deeds? Let's find out with the interesting history editor!

The scene on the day of worship is generally a somber atmosphere, a high style, and the hall is still gorgeous, but the sacrificial vessels are rustic, wooden bowls, pots, wine glasses, etc. There are no decent utensils, and the offerings are simple and crude. The soup is also winter melon soup. As for the three animals required for the sacrifice, namely beef and mutton, they are all stinky.

The sacrifices are extremely rude, the vermilion urn, wooden pots, and wine bottles are very rough. There are only three pieces of meat in the soup, one powder for each powder, and a few tablets for the winter melon soup ... The sacrifice is complete, and the cattle and sheep are rancid.

Although the matter is not contained in the official history, the author Zhang Ye is a man of that era, and Zhang Ye was born in the official residence of a long-time resident in Hangzhou. He likes to travel around the world and has a high level of literacy. Court officials communicated quite closely.

At that time, Chongzhen sent the Taichang Temple Minister in the North Korea to Nanning to preside over the sacrifice ceremony, and Zhang Jian was able to follow because he had a good friendship relationship with Taichang Temple Minister Zhu Zhaoxuan. He also had the opportunity to see the most shabby royal sacrifice in history, and recorded it in "Tao Yi Meng Yi".

In Renwu in July, Zhu Zhaoxuan was too thin, during the mid-yuan sacrifice period, and he watched it.

Moreover, this man was not a leg of the Qing Dynasty . After the fall of the Ming Dynasty , Zhang Jian was determined to be a Ming Dynasty's subject. He did not cooperate with the Qing court and wrote many books in order to place his grief on his homeland. Still has some truth.

As for why Chongzhen did this, in fact, we combined the historical background of the time to reach a good conclusion.

When was Chongzhen's fifteenth year? The Ming Dynasty died in Chongzhen's 17 years, that is, the Ming Dynasty died two years later. At that time, the Ming Dynasty had just lost the battle between Songjin and Manqing, and the country was in a state of sorrow. Coupled with the resurgence of civil unrest in Shaanxi, Li Zicheng has become a wing, and the country is facing internal and external problems. Out of the storm , the country is in a downturn. The performance of the Ministers of the DPRK and China during this period was very inactive. No one wanted to help the country through the difficulties. They were only perfunctory in the face of Chongzhen's inquiries. They were more worried about their fate.

There is no doubt that under such a situation of internal and external troubles, the civil and military in the Manchu dynasty have lost confidence, and have created deep despair for Daming's future. Whether Daming can live is a problem. The empire is old, and it is about to die. How many people collapse with it? Many major events are piled together. In comparison, the Chinese Yuan Festival sacrifice in Nanjing is nothing. The situation is not optimistic. Destruction may be imminent. How can the sacrifices to the ancestors be treated grandly?

Although Chongzhen is still high above him at this time, there is no anger in the chapel. Seeing the country will be buried in his own hands, Chongzhen's feelings can be said to be very "unpleasant". His whole body and soul are occupied by the nation's salvation. The business is not particularly concerned. So when the plan of the sacrifice was placed in front of him, he had no time to manage it.

And this was originally the work of the Ministry of Rites. If it was normal, Chongzhen might pay attention to it, but he was obviously not in the mood at the time.

Of course, after all, it is an ancestor worship. Even without the emperor's attention, the Ministry of Rites should not be lazy.

In general, it is not a slackness, because the specific process and the general specifications of the sacrifice have not changed. According to Zhang Jian's "Dao Yi Meng Yi" description, it is time to worship, and everything to do is also done, but the offering is too shabby.

This was a helpless move, and the clever woman couldn't make a meal without rice. At that time, the Ming Dynasty was regarded as running out of oil and lights, and a little money was used to fight, there was really no surplus.

As everyone knows, if you want to hold large-scale events, you also need a certain economic foundation. The Ming Dynasty was obviously exhausted. First, a large-scale natural disaster broke out in the country. The small ice age brought about a large year-long drought, which triggered a series of large-scale disasters such as locust plague and plague. This was not once or twice, but started from the late Wanli period, almost continuously. .

For the Central Plains country, which is dominated by farming, this long-term disaster has shaken the country's economic foundation. The Treasury of the Ming Dynasty has also been completely evacuated in these years. The people's lives are difficult to maintain, and the food and grain of the three armed forces cannot be satisfied. The country can be said to be To the point of complete bankruptcy.

Although Chongzhen industry, relying on the scrape in Jiangnan, helped the Ming Dynasty to recover a little vitality. However, the civil unrest in Shaanxi, the Jurchen in eastern Liaoning, and constant fighting, are consuming the power of the Ming Dynasty all the time. Especially in the last two years of the Ming Dynasty, the fifteenth year of Chongzhen, it was almost exhausted. In this economic environment, even if the Ministry of Rites wants to hold a ritual ceremony, it is not realistic.

Of course, after all, it is a royal sacrifice, and no matter how poor it is, it will not be so shabby. But money is not the biggest problem, it is mainly the mentality, but it is just a careless response.

Moreover, for Chongzhen, this person originally advocated frugality, and it was in his mind to be simple and simple, and it was also a kind of "penalty" to the ancestors in advance. As we all know, the most thing Chongzheng has done is to "sin and cripple oneself", and to plead guilty if nothing happens.

To sum up, this ancestor worship event was in a special period. Chongzhen and the Ministry of Rites had neither the heart nor the money to engage in such national activities, so this event can only be hastily.
