ABSTRACT

The Joseon Dynasty’s “National Ritual(國家儀禮)” can be summarized as “Five Rites(五禮)”. This study was attempted based on the fact that there were no attempts to summarize these achievements, compared to the accumulation of significant achievements related to Joseon’s ‘National Ritual’. It was attempted to understand the limitations of the study by organizing the ‘National Ritual’ study in detail and to think about the future direction of the 'National Rituals’ study. The prelude to the study of ‘National Ritual’ begins with the study of ‘Five Rites(五禮)’ by “Lee Bum-jik” and “Ji Doo-hwan” in the 1980s. The 1990s was the time when the foundation for the study of ‘National Ritual’ was established, and it is of great significance. This period is meaningful as a starting point for the field under the theme of ‘National Ritual’ to gradually secure academic areas within Korean history. The 2000s was a time when the number of researchers increased and academic research exploded amid interest in the ‘Royal(王室)’. The 2010s was a time when the extension of the methodology of ‘National Ritual’ research was expanded and extensive case studies were conducted. Despite the accumulated studies so far, several challenges remain to be solved. First, attempts must be made to encompass the entire ‘National Ritual’. Second, while expanding the scope of methodology, research with the main theme of ‘National Ritual’ should be conducted. Third, it is necessary to seek close convergence research with other branches and disciplines. This joint research organization has only played a role in integrating research on ‘National Ritual’ accumulated so far. It is expected that substantial research will be conducted based on this in the future.
