TitleShenxing shuo 慎刑說 [On Being Cautious in the Application of Punishments]
Topic1. Code and commentaries
Historical periodLate Ming (1585-1644)
AuthorWang Kentang 王肯堂
Publication typeWoodblock

Shenxing shuo is organized under the following six sections, each composed of several paragraphs: “Homicides” (人命), “Robbery” (盜情), “Sexual crimes” (姦情), “Prisons” (監禁), “Hearing lawsuits” (聽訟), and “Instruments for physical punishment” (用刑). Though comparatively short (a little more than 23 folios in the Ming ed. of Da Ming lü fuli jianshi), the entire work amounts to a fairly complete treatise on the judicial procedure, emphasizing its concrete aspects (as opposed to paper-work and correspondence) and insisting on moderation and care. Lü Kun’s Xingjie 刑戒 is appended, with postf. by Zou Yuanbiao 鄒元標 (1592) and (in Da Ming lü fuli jianshi) by Wang Kentang (1612)
