Abstract

  • The hand copying of Buddhist sutras was believed to confer great merit and spiritual benefit, so that from the introduction of Buddhism to Japan in the sixth century numerous manuscripts were reproduced throughout the country. In the late Heian period, there arose the Mappō (age of Dharma decline) doctrine, which held that Buddhist teaching, and consequently the protection of Buddha, would decline. At a time of religious pessimism coupled with the very real decline of the aristocracy, many court nobles sought to attain the after-death passage to the Pure Land of Buddha (i.e., Heaven) by commissioning elaborately decorated scrolls. Presented here is a volume from the Issaikyō (a Buddhist corpus), commonly known as Jingo-ji kyō, so named because it was handed down in the Jingo-ji Temple in Takao, Kyoto. A premier hand-copy of the late Heian period, it was reportedly donated to the Jingo-ji Temple by the retired Emperor Go-Shirakawa (1127−92) at the request of the retired Emperor Toba (1103−56). The corpus originally consisted of more than 5,400 volumes in total, but only 2,317 still remain as the rest were scattered outside the temple. The scroll is made of dark-blue paper ruled with silver lines. Texts are copied in gold, the cover is designed with a Hōsōge-style arabesque drawn with gold and silver pigments, and the frontispiece is decorated with a picture of the preaching Buddha in the background drawn in gold and silver.(en)

    巻首内題下に「神護寺」の朱方印があり「神護寺経」と通称されるものの1巻である。神護寺経は平安時代後期を代表する紺紙金字一切経で、紺色の料紙に金泥で経文を書写する。書写年代は付属の経帙に久安5年(1149)の墨書があることから、平安末と推定されている。鳥羽院の発願により後白河院が神護寺に寄進したと伝えられ、全部で5,400巻余あったが、現在神護寺に残るのは2,317巻、その他は民間に流出した。この本は和様の書風。界線は銀。表紙は宝相華唐草模様、見返しは釈迦説法図。軸は撥型鍍金魚子地四弁花文。経名の「鞞摩肅経」は「鞞摩肅」という人物を相手に説法していることより題されている。
