Yang Jian, also known as Emperor Wen of Sui, united China and brought stability by conquering rival states and establishing a centralized government.

    Chinese missionaries, people who traveled to spread their religion, introduced Buddhism to Japan, Korea, and other Asian islands. Buddhism influenced many aspects of Chinese culture, and was so important that the period from 400 to 845, can be called the Age of Buddhism. This golden age ended when... 

    • A.

      Confucianism was introduced.

    • B.

      Daoism was introduced.

    • C.

      A Tang emperor launched a campaign against the religion.

    • D.

      The Period of Disunion ended, and people didn't need religion anymore.

    Correct Answer
    C. A Tang emperor launched a campaign against the religion.
    Explanation
    During the period from 400 to 845, Buddhism had a significant influence on Chinese culture and was considered the "Age of Buddhism." However, this golden age came to an end when a Tang emperor initiated a campaign against the religion. This suggests that the emperor's actions led to a decline or suppression of Buddhism in China, marking the end of its prominence during that period.
