Edouard Chavannes (1865â€"1918) was a French sinologist. He is best known for his translations from Sima Qian's Shiji, sections of the Hou Hanshu relating to the 'Western Regions', the WeilÃ¼e, his studies of Han dynasty stone carvings, his detailed study of Tang historical texts on the Turks (this book), and for his studies of Chinese religion. The last work, a study of the worship of Mount Tai in ancient China, is a ground-breaking work of modern sinology for its combination of textual analysis and fieldwork.
