As in many other countries, there were once a great variety of folk-religions in Korea. As Korean society has undergone high-speed industrialization and Westernization, many traditional forms of folk-religion have disappeared and been forgotten. Yet there still remain a few forms that run strong. Through this book, readers will explore the nature and function of these remaining forms of traditional folk-religion. The book gives a comprehensive view of the whole development of Korean folk-religions, focusing more on their present form. The book is divided into three chapters such as Mugyo (Korean shamanism), household religions and village ceremonies, respectively. Professor Choi Joon-sik, the author of this book, received his Ph. D. degree in Religious Studies from Temple University in Philadelphia in 1988. He currently chairs the board of directors of the EduPerformance Group for the Korean Arts, and is the president of the Korean Association for Thanatology.
