Adjust font size:

The world's largest exhibition of the Daodejing's various editions, after it closed in Hong Kong, was brought to Beijing today by the organizers.

"The Daodejing: Its Ancient Versions and Editions" exhibition was held in Hong Kong from April 26 - May 10, as a part of the International Forum on the Daodejing, the Taoism classic penned by Chinese ancient wit Laozi.

The exhibition will be open to Beijing's public from May 18 - June 6 at the National Library of China, officials said at the opening ceremony today.

The exhibition includes 500 relics, such as the famous and earliest "bamboo slip" Daodejing dated back to the Warring States Period (475-221 BC) and 30 foreign-language versions of the Taoist bible.
