ABSTRACT

An analysis on the time and process of formation of clan villages is very meaningful in that it is a clue to identifying the time and process of spread of patrilineal kindred order based on Neo-Confucianism in Joseon society. In this sense, this study conducted an analysis on the time and process of formation of clan villages in Daegu prefecture, Gyeongsang Province. The analysis result shows that a lot of clan villages in Daegu prefecture were formed from the late 18th to the mid-19th century and that not a few clan villages were formed from the late 19th to the 20th century. It is very interesting that commoners’ clan villages also began to be formed. In the light of general understanding that a clan village is the ultimate endpoint of patrilineal kindred order in the late Joseon period, this case of Daegu prefecture suggests that patrilineal order based on Neo-Confucianism is likely to have been rooted in the overall society later than generally understood. It seems that, in Daegu prefecture, the late 19th to the early 20th century when clan villages increased rapidly and also commoners began to form clan villages was a time when patrilineal kindred order was most strengthened.
