This volume presents the only English translation of the prayers of Japan´s indigenous religious tradition, Shinto. These prayers, norito, are works of religious literature that are basic to our understanding of Japanese religious history. Locating Donald Philippi as one of a small number of scholars who have developed a perceptive approach to the problem of ´´hermeneutical distance´´ in dealing with ancient or foreign texts, Joseph M. Kitagawa recalls Mircea Eliade´s observation that ´´most of the time [our] encounters and comparisons with non-Western cultures have not made all the strangeness´ of these cultures evident. . . . We may say that the Western world has not yet, or not generally, met with authentic representatives of the real´ non-Western traditions.´´ Composed in the stately ritual language of the ancient Japanese and presented as a ´´performing text,´´ these prayers are, Kitagawa tells us, ´´one of the authentic foreign representatives in Eliade´s sense.´´ In the preface Kitagawa elucidates their significance, discusses Philippi´s methods of encountering the ´´strangeness´´ of Japan, and comments astutely on aspects of the encounter of East and West.
