Korea: A Religious History
This is the first book of its kind to survey the history of religion in Korea from c.600 BC to the present day. Setting the native Korean religions--Shamanism or Musok-kyo--Buddhism, Confucianism, Christianity (both Catholicism and Protestantism), the New Religions, and Islam firmly within the socio-political context of each major historical period, Grayson traces the important developments which occurred simultaneously within each religious tradition. In addition, the book provides a complete index listing myths of some of the ancient states.
