The British government sent an envoy to Hong Xiuquan to say that if Hong Xiuquan recognized the interests of Britain in China, he would provide assistance to the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom, but was refused by Hong Xiuquan. Because Hong Xiuquan refused to recognize unequal treaties and refused to sell state sovereignty, he turned the powers to support the Manchu government. In 1864, Hong Xiuquan died in Tianjing. After his death, the great Taiping Heavenly Kingdom movement failed under the joint killing of the Qing government and the Western powers.
The revolution of Taiping Heavenly Kingdom led by Hong Xiuquan swept across most of China, from 1851. Jintian Uprising By the fall of Tianjing in 1864, the peasant uprising led by Hong Xiuquan lasted for fourteen years, and the force developed to eighteen provinces, successively occupied more than 600 cities, which had a heavy blow to the reactionary forces at home and abroad and left a profound influence in modern Chinese history. The Taiping Heavenly Kingdom revolution can become the peak of Chinese peasant uprising for thousands of years, and it is inseparable from Hong Xiuquan's great contribution. Even the great democratic revolution pioneers in modern China. Sun Yat-sen Mr. Hong Xiuquan also called himself "Hong Xiuquan second", which shows its far-reaching influence on later generations.
Paul Mauriat's History
Hong Xiuquan was born in a farming family. At the age of 7, he went to Shu Shu School in the village to study four books, five classics and some other ancient books. In the village, the parents were optimistic about Hong Xiuquan. They could gain fame and fortune, but they failed in the three Guangzhou court trials in the boy's test. After third years of defeat in Guangzhou, they were 25 years old. One of the illusions of the old man said to him, "in heaven's decree, he is sent to the world to kill demons. Since then, Hong Xiuquan has been silent and behaved strangely. At this point, Hong Xiuquan was not reconciled to the failure of the examination. In six years later, in the spring of 1843 (Dao Guang twenty-three), he took part in the Guangzhou academy trial again, and ended up in the election.
Establishment of Sect
In 1836 (Dao Guang sixteen years), Hong Xiuquan read the Christians who had received examinations in Guangzhou. Liang Fa The book of persuading the world was moved by the Christian meaning of God after reading it, and it sprouted the idea of believing in God and pursuing equality for all. hold
The content of the book contrasts with the illusion that he had been ill at the time of illness. He believed that he had been punished by God, and had thrown away the book of Confucius and Mencius. He no longer became a Confucian scholar and converted to Christianity. Confucius The tablet is replaced by the tablet of God. Although he had never read the Bible, Hong Xiuquan began to publicize the Christian doctrine he understood, and called it "worshiping God" (also called the worship of God). Claiming to be the second son of God, Jesus's brother.
Hong Xiuquan initially missionary in Guangzhou, but failed to achieve great success. Hong Xiuquan then talked about his friends. Feng Yun Shan It destroyed Confucius's tablet, changed Christianity and spread teachings to the villagers. Later, he wrote a series of evangelism poems, such as the original salvation song, attacking all kinds of evil phenomena in the society and calling for the establishment of a new world of "one family under heaven and one share peace" according to the Christian doctrine. Hong Xiuquan used Christianity to transform social activities.
In 1844 (Dao Guang twenty-four years), Hong Xiuquan and Feng Yunshan transferred to the Guangxi area for missionary work. Soon after he returned to Guangdong, Feng left behind the development of local believers.
In 1845 (Dao Guang twenty-five years) to the next year, Hong Xiuquan wrote his original works, such as the awakening of the original Taoism, the original Taoism and the song of hundred Zheng.
In the early years of Dao Guang (twenty-seven years) in 1847, Hong Xiuquan studied in Guangzhou for a few months and asked for baptism. But the clergy believed that Hong Xiuquan did not know enough about Hong Xiuquan's doctrine and refused to do so. Hong then went to Guangxi to rendezvous with Feng Yunshan, and with the help of Feng Yunshan, he established "Guangxi Guiping in that year". God worship "Absorbed. Yang Xiu Qing , Xiao Chaogui , Wei Chang Hui 2000 members. The regulations and ceremonies of the God worship society were formulated one after another.
The contradiction between Hong Xiuquan's worship of God and the local government deepened day by day.

In the early days of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom, the military and political affairs were responsible by the military officers, and Hong Xiuquan retired to the post office for less. Feng Yun Shan , Xiao Chaogui Dead, the power lies on the hand of King Yang Xiuqing. After the capital of Tianjing, Hong Xiuquan advocated Confucian classics As a banned book, Yang Xiuqing did not agree, and forced Hong Xiuquan to give up by "father in heaven". The latter agreed that the four books and five classics could be printed and published after the revision, but until the death of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom, it had not been published yet.
At that time, many people in the Qing Dynasty were weak because of opium popping and were hard to quit smoking, resulting in a large number of silver outflows, the national treasury empty, and people's livelihood. Hong Xiuquan made a good effect by prohibiting the opium trade through drastic penalties. On the principle of sovereignty, Hong Xiuquan did not recognize the unequal treaties of humiliation and humiliation signed by the Qing Dynasty.

The fall of Tianjing
The Qing army began to force Tianjing. Chen Yucheng and Xiu Cheng Li With the support of others,
During the past few years, the Taiping Army prevented many offensive movements of the Qing army. 1859 (Xianfeng nine years), brother Hong Ren Wei Arrived in Tianjing, Hong Xiuquan rejoice, Feng Ren for military division, dry king, the Prime Minister of the kingdom of heaven. Because Hong Ren Wei Hong Xiuquan failed to render meritorious service to the king. Later, Hong Xiuquan dispersed the powers of the king and began to overrule the king.
In 1861 (eleven years in Xianfeng), the admiral of the British navy. He Bo Counsellor Harry Parkes To Tianjing, he proposed to Hong Xiuquan to assist China in the process of dividing China equally. Taiping Heavenly Kingdom Beat the Qing Dynasty. Hong Xiuquan resolutely rejected the British proposal and maintained a clear and firm attitude in safeguarding territorial integrity and sovereignty. When the British saw that they could not benefit from the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom, they turned to support the Qing Dynasty. In order to suppress the Taiping army, the Qing Dynasty colluded with foreigners and betrayed the interests of the state.
1862 (twelve years in Xianfeng) Chen Yucheng After bravery, Zeng Guo Quan The rate of Xiang troops pushed Yuhuatai to besieged Nanjing City, and the situation was on the turn. In his later years, Hong Xiuquan was conservative and fell into religious superstition. Xiu Cheng Li Knowing that Tianjing was unable to stay long, Hong Xiuquan suggested giving up Tianjing and turning to the Central Plains and being rejected by Hong Xiuquan. In the face of difficulties, Hong Xiuquan did not take proper countermeasures, but he told the officers and men that there would be heavenly soldiers coming down and driving away the Qing troops.
After that, both the Soviet Union and the Zhejiang base were covered.

Hong Xiuquan was seriously ill at that time, and he refused. Xiu Cheng Li The idea of abandoning the city is expected to be a blessing to the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom and to defeat the Qing army. But with Tianjing's defense becoming more and more urgent, Hong Xiuquan's fantasy was shattered.
Died of illness
In June 1, 1864 (Tongzhi three years April 27th), Hong Xiuquan passed away. Its son Hong Tianguifu Inherit their position. His minister wrapped up his remains with splendid silk and wrapped it in the palace. The secret was not lost, and more than ten days later it was announced to the public.
In July 19th (June 16th), Tianjing (now Nanjing) fell into the Qing army, and the capital of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom was attacked and the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom was destroyed.
The Taiping Heavenly Kingdom movement led by Hong Xiuquan led to the Qing Dynasty. Green camp The system was completely abandoned, and Han landlords such as Zeng Guofan Li Hongzhang Became the backbone of the Qing Dynasty. At the same time, the Qing Dynasty was forced to introduce western advanced weapons to destroy the so-called rebellion, so the activities led by Hong Xiuquan also contributed to the late Qing Dynasty. Westernization Movement One of the important factors.
1859 (Xianfeng nine) Hong Xiuquan promulgated. Hong Ren Wei For the western capitalist countries. New Zealand A book. This is an important political platform of the late Taiping Heavenly Kingdom. It shows that his attitude towards capitalism is more open-minded and broader than that of the landlord ruling class of the same era.
Relying on the inciting power of the worship of God and the sharp social contradictions in the late Qing Dynasty, Hong Xiuquan created the Taiping army. In 1853 (Xianfeng three years), in February, the Taiping army was lowered from Wu Changdong to the south of the Yangtze River. In March 20th, the Taiping Army swept away thousands of miles, and long songs poured into Jinling and began to build "small heaven on earth". In the following 10 years, the Taiping army continued to fight in the west, North and East, and the war was more than half of China. The hurricane and the house are the ruins.
In the winter of 1853, Hong Xiuquan promulgated the " Tian Mu system "Proposed changes in the land system and other measures to reform the society. Its content reflects the demands of the peasants against feudalism and the strong desire to solve the land problem. The completeness and profundity of the content of the program made the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom revolution reach the highest ideological level reached by the peasant revolution of all dynasties in China. The policy of "sharing farmland with rice and having the same food" has brought forth the reform of social system.
The progressive thought. At the same time, he is still committed to establishing the political, economic, ideological and cultural system of the Heavenly Kingdom, trying to establish a new society which is consistent with its interpretation and transformation of the spirit of Christian theology.
After the capital of Tianjing, Hong Xiuquan actively implemented the foreign trade policy and carried out normal foreign trade. The foreign trade policy is actively developing, equality and mutual benefit, independence and independence, and in sharp contrast with the Qing government's closed door policy, surrender to foreign powers, and humiliation of state power. The attitude towards opium input is very strong. In 1854 (four years in Xianfeng), Yang Xiuqing said in his letter to the British writer, "not only Britain, but all nations are trading." All the four seas are brothers, and after the establishment of the port, the object of harm is forbidden. A blow to the aggressors. In 1863 (Tongzhi two years), Shanghai port exported 12 million pounds of tea, more than doubled in 1858 (Xianfeng eight years). In 1862 (the first year of Tongzhi), 180 ships in Shanghai declared customs duties, Shanghai port import tariff revenue was 3370114 two, and two wharf revenue was 51960 two, which was extremely prosperous.
In terms of costumes, the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom led by Hong Xiuquan is a rare peasant regime with clothing system in China. On clothing, it inherited both traditional heritage and innovation, and formed a unique dress and dress system.
In terms of ideology, Hong Xiuquan pointed the spearhead to the spiritual pillar of the feudal dynasty, opposing the feudal hierarchy and advocating equality.
Hong Xiuquan is extremely hostile. Manchu Ruler. Starting from the uprising in Jintian, Hong Xiuquan directed the struggle against the Qing Dynasty, and finally struck a heavy blow to the rulers of Manchu. The Taiping Heavenly Kingdom has carried out the policy of cutting braids and striving to get rid of the shadow of national slavery. This is encouraging for modern revolutionaries.
During his reign, Hong Xiuquan ordered Yang Xiuqing and Hong Rengan to preside over diplomacy. There are many friendly contacts with foreign countries.
The Taiping Heavenly Kingdom revolution led by Hong Xiuquan is the largest peasant uprising in China and even in the history of the world. Although the uprising finally failed, it had a very significant impact on the transformation of modern China. Mao Zedong praised Hong Xiuquan for representing the people who sought truth from the west before the birth of the Communist Party of China. Nowadays, Hong Xiuquan's former residence has become the patriotic education base of Guangdong province.
Hong Xiuquan's life is both a heroic epic and a historical tragedy. He started from Buyi and firmly believed that "ancient business is done by people". In 1856, Hong Xiuquan shouted in the dusk village of Jintian village, a peasant uprising which lasted for fourteen years and swept over eighteen provinces. It was also the largest peasant uprising in the whole history of China and even in the world history. It was raging in the north and south of the river, and it was a great blow to the corrupt Manchu government. Despite the limitations of history and class, the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom revolution finally failed, but the Taiping rebellion led by Hong Xiuquan still had a major impact on the transformation of modern China. The Taiping Heavenly Kingdom uprising even prepared favorable conditions for the revolution of 1911. Sun Zhongshan said Hong Xiuquan was the first person to fight against Qing Dynasty. Mao Zedong praised Hong Xiuquan for representing one of the people who sought truth from the west before the birth of the Communist Party of China. He was one of the first Chinese to seek truth from the West.
Hong Xiuquan and his Taiping Heavenly Kingdom left a valuable spiritual wealth for posterity, which provided the best samples and subjects for later scholars and writers. The Taiping Heavenly Kingdom History Museum in Nanjing now contains 2140 historical relics of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom, 33 sets of first class collections, and a large number of original archives and books. Hong Xiuquan's former residence has become the patriotic education base of Guangdong province. Hong Xiuquan's former residence, Hongshi ancestral hall and Hong Xiuquan Memorial Hall became the three signboards of Hong Xiuquan's hometown tour. Hong Xiuquan's revolutionary spirit is forever in the annals of history.
After entering the twenty-first Century, the study of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom moved from one extreme to the other extreme. It began to become too biased. The idea of negating the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom and reversing Zeng Guofan's case was fired up. The argument that the religion of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom is a cult is very obvious in its argument. First of all, we should not study and understand the religion of Taiping Heavenly Kingdom. Instead, we should avoid the heavy burden, cut the historical materials, list the so-called historical facts one by one, and negate the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom by way of point by side. We can not deny all the people in the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom because of Hong Xiuquan's mistakes. The general negation of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom is not an objective study, but a random cutting and piecing together historical materials. For different time, different environment and different events, they should be commented separately.
The evaluation of Hong Xiuquan must be linked to the evaluation of Taiping Heavenly Kingdom. He founded the worship of God and led the largest and longest time peasant uprising movement in Chinese history, and established a revolutionary regime in Nanjing that was relatively opposed to the Manchu government. It has shaken the decadent ruling base of the Qing government and has the nature of anti imperialism. In this respect, Hong Xiuquan is also a hero. However, after he established the regime, he began to enjoy his success and failed to make progress. Eventually, the Taiping army struggled for power and gain and failed. In this respect, Hong Xiuquan has no desire to escape power and lack of foresight and willpower. But on the whole, Hong Xiuquan is still the hero of the time.
