Beschreibung

Over the centuries Shinto has evolved out of the worship of kami, the divine within the world. As one of the few ancient religions that still thrives, it is of interest to greater circles than Japan specialists, although it remains difficult to understand and even harder to characterize in western terms. The A to Z of Shinto traces its long historical evolution in the book's chronology and carefully considers the religion from different angles in the introduction. The dictionary includes hundreds of cross-referenced entries on significant institutions, concepts, writings, thinkers, and most importantly, the kami. The bibliography provides an outlet for further study.

Pressestimmen

...valuable and recommended... American Reference Books Annual, vol. 38 (2007) This volume will make a useful addition to any reference collection...Useful to students and teachers unfamiliar with the history and the tradition. Studies In Religion/Sciences Religieuses Picken (emeritus, Nagoya U. of Commerce and Business Administration) offers a reference on the controversial Japanese religion that lacks a debatable rational core and agreed doctrines to deal with moral or social problems of life or attitudes toward the environment. His research has suggested that earlier prejudices against it are waning, and that interest in it is growing worldwide as more than an academic subject. Reference and Research Book News
