Samhaksajeon, compiled by Song Si-yeol, contains the biographies of three leading scholars of the mid-Joseon Period, namely, Hong Ik-han (1609-1637), Yun Jip (1606-1637), and O Dal-je (1609-1637). The three of them insisted that Joseon should not consider reconciliation with the Qing Dynasty, which had recently conquered the Ming Dynasty and invaded Joseon. They were taken to the Qing Dynasty and finally executed. The work includes the principal contents of the petitions submitted by the three scholars to the king, and covers their interrogation in Shenyang, the capital of Qing China.
