Shinto - A Short History provides an introductory outline of the historical development of Shinto from the ancient period of Japanese history until the present day.

This book provides a running history of Shinto as a religious system from prehistory to the present day. The introduction explains the concept of a religious system, followed by four chapters that treat different periods in Shinto history. The term Shinto covers a many-hued array of Japanese religious traditions. In the Japan of today, these are represented by a considerable number of organised religious groups, an even larger number of more or less organised local shrine cults, and an ill-defined body of unorganised beliefs and practices that do not involve religious professionals.

Nobutaka Inoue, Endo Jun, Mori Mizue, Ito Satoshi. Shinto - A Short History provides an introductory outline of the historical development of Shinto from the ancient period of Japanese history until the present day. Shinto does not offer a readily identifiable set of teachings, rituals or beliefs; individual shrines and kami deities have led their own lives, not within the confines of a narrowly defined Shinto, but rather as participants in a religious field that included Buddhist, Taoist, Confucian and folk elements.

Thus, this book approaches Shinto as a series of historical 'religious systems' rather than attempting to identify a timeless 'Shinto essence'.This history focuses on three aspects of Shinto practice: the people involved in shrine worship, the institutional networks that ensured continuity, and teachings and rituals. By following the interplay between these aspects in different periods, a pattern of continuity and discontinuity is revealed that challenges received understandings of the history of Shinto.This book does not presuppose prior knowledge of Japanese religion, and is easily accessible for those new to the subject.
