Abstract: This research explores the intricacies of gender dynamic as manifested in Chinese Baojuan (Precious Scrolls) texts and its corresponding religious practices, to discuss the multifaceted and multidirectional contacts between female community and this specific genre. The approach to re-access and re-envision paradigms of Chinese vernacular literature in light of gender perspective will allow a comprehensive understanding on how female recipients and practitioners of textual culture demonstrated impactful relevance to the integration and transformation of the genre. Cases presented in this dissertation addressing the interconnected network of Baojuan texts and practices in terms of gendered symbol, gendered idea, gendered subjectivity and gendered space reflects critically on gender in its interpretative and imaginative dimensions within a broader evolution of Chinese vernacular expression, from Ming-Qing periods to the contemporaries.
