ABSTRACT

『Shuyi書儀』 is recorded in 『Goryeosa高麗史』 yeji禮志, but it has not been studied in this country because of the scarcity of historical sources. 『Shuyi書儀』 comments on letter writing and courtesy by means of a letter model texts and a ritual ceremony. 『Shuyi書儀』 includes five ceremonies五禮 of Confucianism takes it meaning from courtesy. As recorded in『Goryeosa高麗史』『Shuyi書儀』prescribes that the “death days of parents holidays” and the “types of clothes吉服 of those who enter the court.” The regulation of the former was carried out by the 『Goryeosa高麗史』<yeji禮志> Hyung-rye凶禮, the government official class in their spare time 백관급가, and by the enforcement of criminal law 『Goryeosa高麗史』<Hyungbeobji刑法志> 公式.. The spare time of the management class was not based on 『Shuyi書儀』 ; rather, it was ordered in “compliance with the system依制 of 0bokgeubgasik 五服給暇式: compliance with Oejomosik依外祖父母式, compliance with the Songje依宋制, compliance with Oejomorye 依外祖父母例,” and so on. In the long run, 『Shuyi書儀』dictated the contents utilized of the mourning ceremony(喪儀). In the Goryeo period, when the historical significance of the 『Shuyi書儀』 emerged, the real prescriptive power of [Zhou-li周禮], [li-ji禮記], and [Yi-li 儀禮] in China was insufficient. Its successive influence is difficult to ascertain from the time of the Silla新羅 period 『Shuyi書儀』as a system of Song宋. After all, 『Shuyi書儀』 makes up the real prescriptive power of courtesy; the real conformability of the Goryeo period was secured with the foundation of traditional succession under the Silla era. It was established by Sangjonggogumre(詳定古今禮) at Uijong(毅宗). We can therefore understand the history of courtesy from the Early Goryeo period.
