Zhu Xi (1130–1200), born in Youxi, Fujian province, was a notable thinker, philosopher, educator, poet and an exponent of neo-Confucianism. 

One of his most remembered works was the book Family Rituals, where he provided detailed advice on how to conduct weddings, funerals, family ceremonies, and the veneration of ancestors. 

It is reputed that he wrote many essays attempting to explain how his ideas were not Buddhist or Taoist, and included some heated denunciations of Buddhism and Taoism.
