This second volume of the history of the native religious concepts of Japan covers the period of ca. 1200 to 1600, a time that was characterized by amalgamation with Buddhist ideas to such a degree that no native concept remained untouched. As in her first volume, here too the author tries to give a picture of all manifestations containing a religious component pertaining to native concepts while Buddhism is touched upon only as far as necessary in regard to syncretism. Following the specific character of these components the present volume is divided into three parts: the theological speculation due to syncretism; religious concepts found in literature, especially in legends; and the concrete manifestation of religious concepts in folk-customs and in daily life.
