A brief discussion on the origin of the inscriptions on traditional tombstones and the content of the inscriptions

Traditional tombstone inscriptions have a long history. Steles appeared as early as the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period. At that time, the monuments, such as the shadow stele in the palace hall, the animal stele in the ancestral temple, and the lower coffin stele beside the tomb, were not inscribed with words. Later, some people engraved the corresponding words, and various inscriptions gradually formed. Inscriptions on inscriptions can be divided into broad and narrow senses. Inscriptions in the narrow sense only refer to the words written for the manufacture of inscriptions, and inscriptions in the broad sense refer to everything engraved on the inscription. Text.

In my country, steles have been erected since the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period, but the steles in ancient palaces were not engraved with texts, and were only used to measure the time of the sun and shadow; and the steles in ancient ancestral temples were not inscribed with words, but were used to tie sacrifices. The steles on the tombs are only wooden pillars, with holes cut so that the reel can be put through the rope. When the coffin is lowered, the reel is twisted to make the coffin fall into the tomb smoothly. The stele with written characters is called "carved stone". The stele originally refers to the vertical stone. According to legend, Qin Shihuang erected a characterless stele on the top of the Jade Emperor in Qin Mountain. The characters engraved on the stele are called stele inscriptions. It was written for the purpose of engraving a stele. An article that was not written for the purpose of erecting a stele, although it was engraved on the stele, could not be called a stele inscription.

From the Qin and Han dynasties, the tree stele was used to inscribe inscriptions. If there is a stele, there must be inscriptions, so we will not pay attention to the inscriptions without words. Over time, the inscriptions and the stele are combined into one, and the stele refers to the stele inscription. The stele was originally only used by the exploiting classes, The common people are not qualified to erect monuments, nor can they afford to erect monuments. It was not until later that the custom of carving monuments became popular among the people. There are many kinds of inscriptions on inscriptions. The new inscription. Next, we will introduce the situation of the inscription in detail. Since ancient times, the inscription can be said to be eclectic in form.
