Since the late Ming dynasty, a number of nearby residents from the surrounding regions flooded into the south of Zhejiang Province for the sake of cultivating in mountainous areas.


This trend was especially notable during the turbulence of social instability, such as the historical period of the foundation of Qing dynasty, the Revolt of the Three Feudatories and the disturbance of the Taiping Rebellion.


In order to vitalize the agricultural production, the local authorities had to systematically recruit the trans-regional farmers, which eventually resulted in the overflowing of the migrants.


In the meantime, all kinds of heretical religions followed and widely spread among the migrants. During the late Qing dynasty, the southern mountainous region of Zhejiang had repeatedly witnessed the communal violence, which was firmly believed to be closely interconnected with the heretical religions.


The lecture attempts to analyze the complicated relation between the migrant groups and the unorthodox religions.
