During the reign of Emperor Shenzong of the Northern Song Dynasty, the story of Shao Yong's (1011-1077) association with many famous scholar-officials in Luoyang is a well-known story. According to my preliminary study, Shao Yong was introduced to Luoyang local scholar-bureaucrat circles as a partner of Classical Prose (Guwen) Movement and Confucianism. This Luoyang local scholar-bureaucrat relation network focused especially on Mu Xiu (979-1032), Yin Zhu (1001-1047), and Li Zhicai (980-1045). With his own knowledge and cultivation, Shao Yong quickly became an active member of Luoyang scholar-bureaucrat circles. Therefore, when Sima Guang (1019-1086), Wen Yanbo (1006-1097), and other famous scholar-officials retreated in Luoyang during the Xining years, Shao Yong, already a famous scholar at that time, quickly joined their social circle and became close friends with them. Shao Yong's early friends in Luoyang generally had similar academic tendencies. Most of them have a scholar-offical or professional Confucian famiy background. They shared the love for Classical Prose (Guwen) and settled in Luoyang for generations. By examining the process of Shao Yong's moving to Luoyang and focusing on Yin Zhu as a clue, this paper wishes to gain a glimpse of how intellectual networks were formed and how like-minded scholars might have become acquainted with each other during the Northern Song Dynasty.
