Book Title:Folk Religion in Japan: Continuity and Change
Editor(s):Kitagawa, Joseph M; Miller, Alan L
Author(s):Hori, Ichiro
Religion(s):Shinto
Publisher Name:University of Chicago Press
Place of Publication:Chicago, Ill.
Date of Publication:1968
Annotation:Based on the University of Chicago’s 1965 Haskell Lectures series, this book examines how various religions (e.g., Shinto, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Shamanism, and Christianity) have contributed to folk religion in Japan. Of particular ecological interest is the chapter on how mountains are used for conceptualizing the “other” world in addition to more general discussions on cosmology, religious ceremonies, interactions with and perceptions of sacred mountains, and the concept of axis mundi.
