01 Description of Research

What were the gods to the people of antiquity? In particular, how is Jingi Belief (神祇信仰) depicted and transformed in Japanese classical literary texts? Taking an interdisciplinary approach to Japanese classical literature and Japanese religion, I ask how the discourses of the gods were transformed in the literary texts of Japan, how the gods are portrayed more specifically, and what the role and position of the gods are in individual texts of early and medieval Japan.. In particular, I would like to offer a code for seeing “Japan” by providing clues to the nature of mountain worship for people in early Japan and and how mountain worship is depicted and transformed in Classical literary texts.
