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
CommentRem.: The considerations in the Shenxing shuo are organized into the following sections, each composed of several paragraphs: Homicides (人命), robbery (盜情), sexual crimes (姦情), prisons (監禁), hearing lawsuits (聽訟), instruments for physical punishment (用刑). The entire work, although comparatively short (a little more than 23 folios in the Ming ed. of Da Ming lü fuli jianshi), amounts to a fairly complete treatise on the judicial procedure, emphasizing its concrete aspects (as opposed to paper-work and correspondences) and insisting on moderation and care.
Ed.: Appended to Da Ming lü fuli jianshi (q.v.) (base TBka) and its sequels, with preface by Wang Kentang (1612).
