In this article, mainland scholar Cao Xinyu explores the relationship between localized redemptive societies, famine history, and social memory in rural north China over the past few centuries. Such research signals a new openness toward religion in the People's Republic of China (PRC) and a willingness to entertain research methods and conclusions which stray significantly from traditional Marxist scholarship in the PRC.
