History[ edit ] There does not appear to be any authoritative publication on the history or origin of the paper lantern available to the lay researcher via Google. In fact, until the publication of an updated scholarship in , the most recent academic quality research on the more fundamental subject of the history of paper was a volume in an edited series on Chinese technology and invention first published in Before books were ever written on paper wood or bamboo blocks were the preferred material for general knowledge and record-keeping at the time , the hopes and dreams of Chinese Buddhists were signified in the light of paper lanterns, often decorated with the stylized characters which communicated those thoughts to those who could not bear audial witness to their formation. As they studied and recorded and analyzed the world around them, protected from the harsh opinions of the wild world by the walls of their fortresses, so did the candle consume its fuel, sheltered from the winds while projecting its light to the world beyond. Though the legend became confused and convoluted as Chinese historians came to settle on a narrative of Cai Lun as inventor and not simply innovator of paper technology, it appears that an early Emperor of the Eastern Han Dynasty celebrated the establishment of a new era in his reign, or perhaps simply the return of an embassy to India, by adopting the sacred symbol of the Buddhist lantern for his secular celebration, commanding that the lanterns be burned across the capital city, Luoyang. When the necessity of keeping faith with the representation of Cai Lun as inventor can be ignored, this Emperor is said to have been Ming-ti Han Mingdi , who welcomed two Buddhist monks to his court alongside his returning ambassadors in the year 67 of the Common Era.
