Shinto, a short history by Mark Teeuwen( )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shinto - A Short History provides an introductory outline of the historical development of Shinto from the ancient period of Japanese history until the present day. Shinto does not offer a readily identifiable set of teachings, rituals or beliefs; individual shrines and kami deities have led their own lives, not within the confines of a narrowly defined Shinto, but rather as participants in a religious field that included Buddhist, Taoist, Confucian and folk elements. Thus, this book approaches Shinto as a series of historical 'religious systems' rather than attempting to identify
Shinto : een geschiedenis van Japanse goden en heiligdommen by Mark Teeuwen( )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in Dutch and held by 999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over de maatschappelijke rol van de shinto in historisch perspectief In het Japanse landschap zijn shintoheiligdommen en -heiligdommetjes even onontkoombaar als kersenbloesem en karaokebars. Men vindt ze op verlaten bergtoppen en op de daken van kantoorgebouwen, tussen landelijke rijstvelden en in drukke winkelstraten. Dat shinto een centraal element is van de Japanse identiteit staat buiten kijf. Over de aard van shinto zijn de meningen echter sterk verdeeld. Is het een natuurgodsdienst, een reliek uit premoderne tijden toen de Japanners nog in harmonie met de natuur leefden? Of een negentiende-eeuwse creatie, geschapen door de moderne Japanse staat om nationale solidariteit en keizertrouw te propageren? Is shinto Japans oorspronkelijke oergodsdienst, die door de hele geschiedenis heen zijn stempel op de Japanse cultuur heeft gedrukt? Of is dat een mythe die door nationalisten met een reactionaire agenda hardnekkig warm wordt gehouden? Dit boekje probeert een evenwichtig beeld te geven van de historische ontwikkeling van shinto, van de Japanse oudheid tot op de dag van vandaag. Centraal staat de spanning tussen de heiligdommen en hun verankering in de plaatselijke gemeenschap enerzijds, en de centraliserende staatsmacht in zijn verschillende historische incarnaties anderzijds. Zo wordt duidelijk welke maatschappelijke rollen de heiligdommen en hun goden door de tijden heen in de Japanse samenleving hebben gespeeld. Bron: Flaptekst, uitgeversinformatie

Lust, commerce, and corruption : an account of what I have seen and heard, by an Edo Samurai by Buyō Inshi( )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By 1816, Japan had recovered from famines and political reforms and seemed to be approaching a new period of growth. No one questioned the shogunate, yet, in this same year, an anonymous author wrote one of the most detailed critiques of Edo society Japan had ever seen. Writing as Buyo Inshi,?a retired gentleman of Edo," this experienced observer exposed the corruption of samurai officials, the suffering of the poor, the operation of brothels, the dealings of moneylenders, the selling of temples, and many other offenses. Specialists on Edo society oversee this annotated translation
Challenging paradigms, Buddhism and nativism : framing identity discourse in Buddhist environments by Henk Blezer( )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Buddhism is often portrayed as a universalising religion that transcends the local and directs attention toward a transcendent dharma. Yet, wherever Buddhism spreads, it also sparks local identity discourses that, directly or indirectly, root the dharma in native soil and history, and, in doing so, frame "the local" in Buddhist discourse. Occasionally, notably in Japanese Shinto and Tibetan Bön, this localising variety of "framing of discourse"--Here tentatively termed "nativism"-leads to the establishment of independent traditions that break free from Buddhism; yet, in other contexts, localising trends remain firmly embedded within Buddhism. In 'Challenging paradigms: buddhism and nativism' Teeuwen and Blezer offer a comparative study of localising responses to Buddhism in different Buddhist environments in Japan, Korea, Tibet, India and Bali
A new history of Shinto by John Breen( Book )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors explore the various shrines, myths, and rituals of pre-Shinto worship, examining the processes by which they were then interpreted as Shinto and merged into the notion of Shinto that exists in Japan today. Key moments in Shinto's long evolutionary process are identified and discussed, including the Meiji Revolution of 1868 and other crucial junctures in Japan's medieval and early modern periods. Drawing on original research, this enlightening book encapsulates Shinto's long history and continuing influence."--Pub. desc

Shinto in history : ways of the kami by John Breen( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the only book to date offering a critical overview of Shinto from early times to the modern era, and evaluating Shinto's place in Japanese religious culture. In recent years, a few books on medieval Shinto have appeared, but none has attempted to depict the broader picture, to examine critically Shinto's origins and its subsequent development through the medieval, pre-modern and modern periods. The essays in this book address such key topics as Shinto and Daoism in early Japan, Shinto and the natural environment, Shinto and state ritual in early Japan, Shinto and Buddhism in medieval J
The culture of secrecy in Japanese religion by Bernhard Scheid( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and Multiple languages and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Japanese Middle Ages were a period when forms of secrecy dominated religious practice. This fascinating collection traces out the secret characteristics and practices in Japanese religion, as well as analyzing the decline of religious esotericism in Japan. The essays in this impressive work refer to Esoteric Buddhism as the core of Japan's ""culture of secrecy"". Esoteric Buddhism developed in almost all Buddhist countries of Asia, but it was of particular importance in Japan where its impact went far beyond the borders of Buddhism, also affecting Shinto as well as non-religious

Buddhist modernities : re-inventing tradition in the globalizing modern world by Hanna Havnevik( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The transformations Buddhism has been undergoing in the modern age have inspired much research over the last decade. The main focus of attention has been the phenomenon known as Buddhist modernism, which is defined as a conscious attempt to adjust Buddhist teachings and practices in conformity with the modern norms of rationality, science, or gender equality. This book advances research on Buddhist modernism by attempting to clarify the highly diverse ways in which Buddhist faith, thought, and practice have developed in the modern age, both in Buddhist heartlands in Asia and in the West. It presents a collection of case studies that, taken together, demonstrate how Buddhist traditions interact with modern phenomena such as colonialism and militarism, the market economy, global interconnectedness, the institutionalization of gender equality, and recent historical events such as de-industrialization and the socio-cultural crisis in post-Soviet Buddhist areas. This volume shows how the (re)invention of traditions constitutes an important pathway in the development of Buddhist modernities and emphasizes the pluralistic diversity of these forms in different settings

By 1816, Japan had recovered from the famines of the 1780s and moved beyond the political reforms of the 1790s. Despite persistent economic and social stresses, the country seemed headed for a new period of growth. The idea that the shogunate would not last forever was far from anyone's mind. Yet, in that year, an anonymous samurai produced a scathing critique of Edo society. Writing as Buyo Inshi, "a retired gentleman of Edo," he expressed in An Account of What I Have Seen and Heard a profound despair with the state of the realm. Seeing decay wherever he turned, Buyo feared the world would soon descend into war. In his anecdotes, Buyo shows a sometimes surprising familiarity with the shadier aspects of Edo life. He speaks of the corruption of samurai officials; the suffering of the poor in villages and cities; the operation of brothels; the dealings of blind moneylenders; the selling and buying of temple abbotships; and the dubious strategies seen in law courts. Perhaps it was the frankness of his account that made him prefer to stay anonymous. A team of Edo specialists undertook the original translation of Buyo's work.0This abridged edition streamlines this translation for classroom use, preserving the scope and emphasis of Buyo's argument while eliminating repetitions and diversions. It also retains the introductory essay that situates the work within Edo society and history
