ABSTRACT

From traditional ear, factors of weather like wind, cloud, thunder, and rain have been performed enshrinement in Sancheondan on a large scale with the God of village shrine, those had an important meaning in people's comfort and safety or richness. Favorable weather was an absolute condition, grain's enough growth was connected directly with people's life. Therefore, people thought grain as their Heaven, King who wished to do the rule of virtue thought people as his Heaven. As a matter of fact, the rite for the God of Poong'un'roi'oo, God of Sancheon, God of village shrine was a popular belief which was possible to be pointed out as a rite for vicious God in the Confucian society. Nevertheless, the measure that they absorbed them as ceremonies of national rites and took charge of them in central government is related with the dynasty's philosophy that they wanted to establish a system of power centralization, at the same time, let the people's mind concentrate to national development. We can make ascertain Poong'un'roi'oo akjang not getting out of tradition making akjang with the level capturing the phrases from old books like the other a-ak akjangs. Byeon, Gye-Ryang, the maker of Poong'un'roi'oo Akjang kept a key position in the discussion about the ceremonies of national rites as the greatest civil service, nevertheless, he simply widened akjang's conventionality. He made Jeonpye akjang for praising the virtue of Poong'un'roi'oo and praying benediction, Choheonsancheon akjang for praising the virtue of mountains and streams, and praying benediction, Choheonseonghwang akjang for praising the virtue of village shrine's God and praying benediction, Cheolbyeondoo akjang for praying benediction after performing enshrinement politely. There were some changes in the order and contents right after revising or shifting the processes of enshrinement in the akjang works made by Byeon, Gye-Ryang. He composed the akjang works with assembling the phrases from the old books, or motifs borrowed from the other akjangs ahead, or created by himself. It is a convention making a-ak akjang at that time. He composed Seonjam akjang with the Poong'un'roi'oo akjang, it is very possible that he made Seonjam akjang, guessing the similar technique, we can not conclude hastily yet.
