ABSTRACT

This study aims to explicate the properties of the existing xylographic books in Buddhism published in the old region of Yangju, Gyeonggi-do by investigating them and carrying out the analyses of them. For this, we have investigated, in addition to literature and xylographic bibles, Buddhist books which are now possessed by principal libraries and temples in Yangju. 99 kinds of Buddhist books had been published by 14 temples at the region of Yangju. It is in the late Chosun that Buddhist books in the region of Yangju were actively published. Bulamsa has published the greatest amount of 53 kinds of books. we can find out that Buddhist bibles were actively published, and uncanonical books and Esoteric Buddhist bibles with strong characteristics of worldly benedictions and Praja-Paramita emphasizing the thought of emptiness. As for publishing methods, 85 kinds of books were xylographic and 14 kinds of books were published with wooden types. There were direct and indirect supports from the ruling class on most of the temples that published Buddhist books. Temples happened to co-publish Buddhist books.
