The Ministry of Rites or Board of Rites was one of the Chinese Three Departments and Six Ministries which existed from the time of the Tang dynasty (618-907 CE) until the Xinhai Revolution of 1911 brought an end to Imperial China. Prior to its formation, the tasks given to the Ministry were assigned to officials such as the Grand Herald. During the Song dynasty (960-1279) its functions were temporarily transferred to the Zhongshu Sheng.
