ABSTRACT

The purpose of this article was to explore - based on 37 historical articles in The Christian News- whether it was reading materials for the selection and the Christian way reading according to the Christian context or closer to the inspiration of history recognition which had become a major concern for Modernization Period.Through this, I suggested to get a good understanding of the meaning of historical articles in The Christian News Accordingly, in Chapter 2, I examined the general status of historical articles in The Christian News, and in Chapter 3, I discussed characteristics of historical articles focusing on <Dongguk History> which account for a large number of historical articles in The Christian News Thus, I've been able to confirm that The Christian News was quoted by translating  Dongguktonggam which is the first chronological history that was completed in the Sungjong Dynasty. I also confirmed the article contents in The Christian News were same with the contents of  Regular subject Dongguk History written by Hyun Chae in 1889 and published by the department as a history textbook. Through these two facts, I was able to tell that Regular subject Dongguk History was written on the basis of Dongguktonggam. Considering this point, The Christian News, which contained 37 historical articles from 1901 to 1902, is an important material that shows the link between Joseon Dynasty history books and modern Enlightenment history textbooks. And it may have served as an important stepping stone for teaching history to more readers by writing the contents of the 『Regular subject Dongguk History』 - was published in a mixed style of writing Korean with Chinese characters in 1889 - in pure Korean.
