Periods of Chinese History
Shu Guang 疏廣, courtesy name Shu Zhongweng 疏仲翁, was a Confucian scholar and official of the late Former Han period 前漢 (206 BCE-8 CE). He came from Donghai 東海 (modern Cangshan 蒼山, Shandong) and was a disciple of Meng Qing 孟卿, a teacher of the Confucian Classic Chunqiu 春秋 "Spring and Autumn Annals". Shu Guang rose to the post of professor (boshi 博士 "erudite") and was granted the title of Superior grand master of the palace (taizhong dafu 太中大夫). In 67 BCE he was appointed Junior Mentor of the Heir Apparent (taizi shaofu 太子少傅), shortly later Grand Mentor (taizi taifu 太子太傅). Together with his nephew Shu Shou 疏受, who was then (taizi shaofu), he retired five years later and spent the rest of his life as a private person. He has written a commentary to the Spring and Autumn Annals, the Shuzi Chunqiu 疏子春秋.
