Running script is the cursive form of standard script. Originated from late Eastern Han Dynasty; it is less compact than formal script and less cursive than cursive hand. Its obvious peculiarity is non-stop stroke used for finishing a character in one stroke and some strokes could be omitted or simplified but remains the recognizable structures of the characters so as to make the readers or appreciators understand the basic content and then eventually realized the aims of easily writing and straightaway understanding. The running script formed in Wei and Jin Dynasties, flourishing at all times till today. In the period of Eastern Jin Dynasty, Wang Xizhi and Wang Xianzhi‘s achievements in this aspect glorified the running script in their own way and via their own understanding to this style of calligraphy. The most representative works of this script is Preface of Lanting Pavilion by Wang Xizhi in Jin Dynasty. It is reputed by ancient people as "the best running script under heaven" because of its sturdiness and elegance. Some once compared the strength and grandeur delivered by the running script in the works as the scene of dragons jumping over the gate in the heaven and tigers lying in a gorgeous pavilion. Draft Eulogy for My Nephew by Yan Zhenqing in Tang Dynasty is famous for boldness and strength, honored as "the excellent running script only second to that of Wang Xizhi".

Emperor Taizong of Tang (personal name Li Shimin, 599 – 649), the second emperor of the Tang Dynasty of China, loved Wang Xizhi's calligraphy very much and collected as many as Wang's works in his life time. In 648, he wrote the Preface to Xuan Zang's Translation of Sultra, and ordered Monk Huai Ren in Chang'an's Hongfu Temple to inscribe it on the stone tablet, but in the handwriting of Wang Xizhi through selecting characters from the emperor's collection of the calligrapher's works. It is obviously a huge project and hard work. Huai Ren spent 25 years to finish the stone tablet including Prince Li Zhi's Forward, Monk Xuan Zang's Memorial of Thanks and Heart Sutra, that was generally called Sheng Jiao Xu Bei.

"The Tablet of Forward to the Sacred Teaching of Monk Xuan Zang" inscribed by Monk Huai Ren in Chang'an's Hongfu Temple in the handwriting of Wang Xizhi, which is stored at the Museum of Forest of Stone Tablets in Xi'an (the former Shaanxi Provincial Museum). The tablet is known as the "most valuable copybook ".

王羲之的法帖,流传下来很少,而且的都是临摹本。圣教序是唐代僧人怀仁集王羲之字而成。

《怀仁集王羲之圣教序》碑,共计2400余字,西安博物馆藏。此碑内容包括唐太宗为玄奘法师翻译佛经而作的序文、太子李治作的序文以及玄奘写的谢表及心经,通称《三藏圣教序碑》。京师弘福寺僧怀仁集皇室所藏王羲之行书真迹成文,后镌刻成碑。此碑由于直接从唐太宗收藏的王羲之书迹中选出,于是显得格外珍贵。因为是后人集字,所以行气不很连贯,但字迹点画精妙,历来为书家所喜好。

主讲人秦永龙,字长云,1973年至今一直在北京师范大学从事古代汉语、汉语文字学和中国书法学的教学和研究。书法师承启功先生,作品广为国内外公私收藏。著有《西周金文选注》、《汉字书法通解•行书》、《书法常识》、《书法精品》、《楷书指要》。现为北京师范大学艺术与传媒学院教授、博士生导师、美术与书法系主任。中国书法家协会教育委员、北京书法家协会艺术顾问、中国文字学会会员。
