Abstract/Artist Statement

The purpose of this paper is to observe Japanese history form a religious perspective. From the Shinto, Buddhist, & Confucian religions, we can trace the effects these religious ideas had over Japanese law & people. This paper also looks closely at the bushido code & its influence on Japanese culture. One of the points proven in this paper are Ancestor worship & the Shinto religion made it easier to implement imperial rule during he Meiji period. This paper relies heavily on Meiji-era books by Japanese authors. I chose this topic because it si my theory that religion has a strong influence on cultures throughout history.
