Bai Hu Tong (Chinese: 白虎通; pinyin: Báihǔ Tōng, also 白虎通義, 白虎通德論), commissioned to Ban Gu (32–92) by the emperor Zhang of Han (57-88) - the resolution after court— debates from the last century of the East Han empire (25-220 CE). The name is derived from the White Tiger pavilion in the north of Luoyang (the capital) where the debates took place.

The event (so called White Tiger conference, zh:白虎观会议), initiated by Dong Zhongshu, involved leading Confucian intellectuals of the time.
