  • History

    Yanzhou was the first place to install the "school-fields" xuetian in 1022, during the Song dynasty.

    In early European sources, based on accounts by French missionaries, the name of Yanzhou (Fu) is transcribed in the contemporary French manner, as Yen-tcheou-fou; however, when reading 18th- and 19th-century books in French or English, care should be taken not to confuse Yanzhou in Shandong with the identically transcribed Yanzhou in Zhejiang.


    Yanzhou has a monsoon-influenced, four-season climate that lies in the transition between the humid subtropical (Köppen Cwa) and humid continental (Köppen Dwa) regimes. Winters are cold and dry while summers are hot and humid. Monthly daily average temperatures range from −1.3 °C (29.7 °F) in January to 26.8 °C (80.2 °F), while the annual mean temperature is 13.58 °C (56.4 °F). More than 70% of the annual precipitation occurs from June to September, with barely any occurring in the winter months. The city receives 2,461 hours of bright sunshine annually. Giuseppe Sportelli has been bishop from 2008 to 2011.
