    Abstract PDF
    Three frequently used documents by researchers on the Japanesecolonial period-Classified Police Records of the Japanese Government-Generalof korea on the Anti-Japanese Movement 舊 朝鮮總督府 警務局 抗日獨立運動關係 秘密記錄, Trial Records of Gyeongseong District Court 京城地方法院 裁判記錄 and Filed Documents of Gyeongseong District Court 京城地方法院 編綴文書(while the latter two were collected by the National Instituteof Korean History, the former was collected by Asiatic Research Institute ofKorea University)-are among the same records group that the Prosecutor’sOffice of Gyeongseong District Court produced through registration andcompilation. As contents related to ideology suppression and thoughtcontrol were numerous, it could be assumed that most of the materialswere produced by the ‘Department of Ideology’ of the Prosecutor’s Office. By examining the administrative records of the 1920’s within this group,the process of how the ‘Department of Ideology’ was formed is clearlyshown. As ideological movements for Korea’s independence and revolutiongrew, execution of regulations was further expanded by the Prosecutor’sOffice. Since the mid-1920’s, information on ideology had been separatedfrom general information, was routinely collected heavily, and was considered more valuable than the general information. By the end of the1920’s, the term Ideology Prosecutor 思想係 檢事(meaning a prosecutorwho specializes in ideology verification) and the named ‘Department ofIdeology’(思想部) emerged on the records.
