Zhu Xi and Lü Zuqian once held a symposium at San Qu, which was an important academic event of great significance in the intellectual interaction between the two scholars. However, there have been disagreements on certain issues, for instance, the time and venue of this meeting. Through careful examination of a large body of historical documents, the present essay examines these issues from historical and geographical perspectives. It modifies some commonly accepted views by presenting more accurate details. For example, the venue of Zhu and Lü’s meeting was Shiyan Monastery, twenty li east of Quzhou, and the 10-day symposium was held from the twentieth of the third month to the seventh of the fourth month in the third year of the Chunxi reign period (1176).
