Tiancong chao chen zouyi 天聰朝臣奏議 "Memorials for discussion submitted by ministers during the Tiancong reign (1627-1635)" is a collection of court documents from the early phase of the Manchu empire before the conquest of China, in 57 chapters (pian 篇). It was originally stored among the Chinese documents in the Chongmo Hall 崇謨閣 of the Imperial Palace in Mukden (Shenyang 瀋陽, Liaoning). The historian Luo Zhenyu 羅振玉 (1866-1940) discovered it and published it in the collection Shiliao congkan chubian 史料叢刊初編 in 1924.
