2017  The Age-Old Ritual Practice of Ohatsuhoage among the Kakure Kirishitan Survivors: Intersection of Identities and Resources   単著   
Global Christianity Studies in Religion and Society  , 2018.10 (予定)   

概要(Abstract) This article highlights the singularity of the most salient features of the Ohatsuhoage ritual event that constitutes one of the most persistent and deeply ingrained aspects of Kakure Kirishitan survivors in Nagasaki. By bringing together these significant characteristics from the lived religious experiences of three Kakure Kirishitan communities, I attempt to forge a significant positive correlation between the corporate identities and ritual resources that the material gives evidence to. The synthesis demonstrates that the ritually-prepared communal meal—Ohatsuhoage—constitutes a stable part of Kakure Kirishitan dominant ideology in which its followers critically take up membership in and identity with the divine and human community. Intriguingly, its core elements conspire together to signal, shape, and heighten collective self-definition, psycho-religious imagination, cherished memories and emotions, while also grounding their identity formats and adaptation processes. The analysis reinforces the startling assumption that the Ohatsuhoage ritual event continues to be, for the most part of the actor-participants, an historical and valuable religious activity deemed important enough to maintain their minimal survival in urban settings. In general, therefore, this study provides a refined interpretative tool for further understanding how the Ohatsuhoage ritual activity has increasingly proved to be a definitive component of the various processes that ultimately enables Kakure Kirishitan survivors to be nurtured by the strands of their longstanding spirituality and religion in the flux of social change.
Keywords: Kakure Kirishitan survivors; Ohatsuhoage ritual practice, sharing; remembering deceased predecessors; time-persisting relational patterns; identities; resource-acquisition strategies; Nagasaki Christians

概要(Abstract) Recent scholarship on the present-day remnants of Kakure Kirishitan (Hidden Christians) in Japan has tended to emphasize the least telling and distinctive aspects of their very real life experiences and struggles in Nagasaki. This research was instead conducted to highlight the singularity of some salient socio-cultural, psycho-religious, and spiritual constructs that define and determine Kakure Kirishitan survivors in urban settings, and to forge a connection between these significant characteristics. Using ethnographic and observational techniques, the results suggest that Kakure Kirishitan individuals have been intrinsically and extrinsically characterized by remarkable spiritual motivation and persistence, psycho-religious experiences and emotions, as well as vivid historical, Christian and moral references to their deceased predecessors. In particular, the few remaining Kakure Kirishitans have, through shrines and festivals, consciously sought the viability of their religious beliefs and practices in the public sphere, while privately forming and reaffirming suitable images of community. The analysis reinforces the importance of recognizing how sharing common heritage, identity and cherished memories have reinforced the uniqueness and practical value of Kakure Kirishitan communities in their continuing spiritual path and reveals a number of distinctive elements of their religious symbolism imbued with local customs and values. The study provides a refined interpretative tool for demonstrating how the essentially dynamic interplay between specific religious components of Kakure Kirishitan believers mirrors closely the elements of their struggle to achieve transition with experiences of religious adjustment and survival, while maintaining the persistent patterns of the past.

Keywords: Kakure Kirishitan survivors; religious constructs; spiritual constructs; sharing; remembering deceased predecessors; Japanese shrine festivals; time-persistent relational patterns; Nagasaki Christians.

概要(Abstract) 長崎市下黒崎町の山中にある枯松神社は日本でキリスト教が禁止されていた時代、かくれキリシタンが密かに集い祈りを捧げてきた神社である 。この神社は神道ではなく、いわゆる「キリシタン神社(キリシタンを祀っている神社)」の一つである(片岡1997;宮崎2001)。「キリシタン神社」は日本におけるキリシタン伝来地の日本独特の宗教建設である。

本研究は黒崎地域の枯松神社と大祭礼の歴史と現状を記すした上で、地域社会の宗教観を考察することを目的としている。そのために、第一に、黒崎地域の基礎資料や文献にもとづいて、枯松神社の形式・展開過程について史的な考察を加える。第二に、枯松神社の実態を、黒崎地域でのフィールド調査にもとづいて記述する。第三に、枯松神社が黒崎地域でどのように受け止められるかを検討する。
