Together with Taoism, legalism and mohism, Confucianism forms the essence of Chinese culture. The founder of Confucianism was the famous Confucius.

Confucius was a native of Shandong during the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period, and the State of Shandong is today's Shandong Province in China. Confucius'hometown is now Luyuan Village in Qufu City, Shandong Province. Confucius studied and educated his disciples all his life, and cultivated many talented students. In the latter half of his life, Confucius traveled around the country of Lu to impart knowledge, which enhanced Confucius'influence at that time and laid a foundation for the dissemination of Confucianism.

Today, Shandong is known as the "home of saints". In order to commemorate Confucius, the Confucian government, which was founded in 1377, is still situated in Qufu City, Shandong Province, after centuries of baptism.
