Assembling Shinto : Buddhist Approaches to Kami Worship in Medieval Japan, Hardback Book

Assembling Shinto : Buddhist Approaches to Kami Worship in Medieval Japan Hardback

Part of the Harvard East Asian Monographs (Hardcover) series

Description

"During the late twelfth to fourteenth centuries, several precursors of Shinto came together for the first time.

By focusing on Mt. Miwa in present-day Nara Prefecture and examining the worship of indigenous deities (kami) that emerged in its proximity, this serves as a case study of the key stages of "assemblage" through which this formative process took shape."--
