Lugavtsova A.P. - Ingen Ryuki (1592-1673) and his role in the history of Japanese culture of the Edo period (1603-1868) pp. 1-7

DOI:
10.25136/2409-868X.2018.12.27953

Abstract: The Edo period (1603-1868) holds a special place in the history of Japan. Despite the fact that since 1641, the Tokugawa Shogunate isolated Japan from the outside world, this period is known for significant transformation in various levels of social life. This article is dedicated to the changes in the religious and cultural spheres of the country during the Edo period based on the example of origination of the Obaku School, new movement of Japanese Buddhism founded by the migrants from China. Particular attention is given to the creative path and biography of Ingen Ryuki (1592-1673) as the founder of the school, who familiarized Japan with the cultural achievement of Ming China. The scientific novelty is defined by the absence of special works dedicated to the Obaku School and its founder in the national Japanese Studies. Therefore, the author focused on the writings of English and Japanese authors. Based on the example of separate aspects of Japanese cultural life, such as calligraphy, the author reviews the magnitude of cultural impact of Ingen Ryuki and his followers. The main conclusion lies in the statement that despite Japan’s isolation and conservative policy of the shohunate, the new cultural ideal borrowed from China and passed on through the monks-emigrants has entwined in the culture of Edo period. The emergence of “Chinese styles” in calligraphy and painting are the vivid illustration of the power of creative heritage of the Obaku teaching, as well as the talent and charisma of its founder.

Nesterkin S. - Main trends in the renewal movement of Russian Buddhism in early XX century pp. 8-15

DOI:

Abstract: The object of this research is the renewal movement in Russian Buddhism. In the beginning of the XX century, part of the Buddhism community initiated the revision of organizational forms of its existence, as well as theoretical and practical background. Major attention is given to determination of the basic principles of key directions of this movement, examination of their goals and objectives, as well as identification of differences in their approaches towards reorganization of the Buddhist Church in the context of ongoing changes is socioeconomic situation of Russia of the early XX century. Leaning on the documents and archival materials, the author explores the doctrinal and ideological grounds of the movements and their organizational forms. The research demonstrates the two widely varying movements that pursued different objectives and applied the essentially different strategies. On the one hand, the activity of such Buryat enlighteners as B. Baradin, T. Jamsarano, as well as representatives of the clergy such as A. Dorjiev, C. Iroltuyev, Ganjurova-Gegen was called to develop the ideological framework for preserving national identity of the Buddhist peoples in Russia in the conditions of ideological and political expansion. While on the other hand, L. S. Tsydenov and his followers set quite a different task: reform Buddhism in such way that it would develop in the new sociocultural environment for itself – Western culture of Russia. It was aimed not so much at preservation of the national identity, as the development of Buddhist tradition in the new cultural environment, which also implicitly resolved the first task.
Archeology
Nikolaev E.N. - New materials on ferrous metallurgy of Yakuts in the XV-XVII centuries pp. 16-23

DOI:
10.25136/2409-868X.2018.12.28355

Abstract: This article contains the materials of excavations of the metallurgy production sites. Records of iron smelting were discovered in the territory of 2nd Zhemkonsky Nasleg of Khangalassky District of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia). The explored objects represent a set of smelters for bloomery process. During the field season of 2017, the indicated objects were explored by the archeological expedition of Institute of Humanitarian Research and Indigenous Peoples of the North of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Three metallurgical complexes that contained smelting furnace and slag wastes were inspected. Methodological foundation contains theoretical insights into the research of the traditional economic and cultural complexes and industrial arts, based on the general scientific principles of historicism, systematicity and scientific objectivity. The scientific novelty consists in closing the existing historiographical gap, associated with insufficiency of target-oriented research of metallurgical production of Yakutia. The author describes the defining characteristics of the explored metallurgical furnaces, as well as provides the schematic reconstruction. Based on radiocarbon dating of samples, the time of existence of smelter constructs was determined. The acquired data allow concluding that the ancient metallurgies of Yakutia in the XV-XVII centuries used the small adobe furnaces with stone facing, built inside the piled elevation.

Abstract: The goal of this article is the synoptic characteristic of the photographed visual sources applied in the process of reconstruction of everyday life of the residents of Russian periphery, as well as models of everyday routine of the diverse social, professional and age groups of urban population of the late XIX – early XX century. For detailed and gradual examination of this topic, the range of sources was limited by photo collections of Tobolsk and Tyumen. This article is first to describe and introduce into the scientific discourse of the set of photos of several local collections preserved in the state museums, as well as private and family archives. Methodological foundation contains the principles of historical anthropology and visual history, combined with the micro-historical approach towards exploring the local photo collections of various types. Micro-historical approach is specified by studying the local collections, with application of systemic and structural-functional analysis, comprehensive and descriptive approaches, historical-typological method, as well as paramount in working with photo collections method of museum classification and attribution. The scientific novelty is defined by the use of photo documents as the backbone and independent sources in studying the history of everyday life of Western Siberian cities during the period of rapid growth of photographic industry in Russia, which fell on the turn of the XIX – XX centuries.

They describe the flying fish, astonishing bids that cannot fly, and meticulously analyze the expedition route, weather conditions and geographical peculiarities of the visited places. The research leans on the historical-genetic method that allows tracing the formation of perception of the circumnavigation participants on nature and geography; the comparative method helps to determine the common features and specifics of the New World and other foreign territories formed in the mind of Drake’s companions. The Age of Discovery opened an unfamiliar world for the representatives of the Old Continent, which they were eager to cognize and explore in the XV-XVII centuries. The discoveries made in Francis Drake’s circumnavigation helped to describe the previously unexplored by the Europeans parts of the globe, unusual natural phenomena, and little-known specimen of plants and animals. Testimonies of the participants can be rightfully considered an important source on the history of geographical discoveries of the XVI century.

Rakhimova G. - Roman Law in England: history of influence demonstrated in the Constitutions of Clarendon of 1164 pp. 81-91

DOI:
10.25136/2409-868X.2018.12.26623

Abstract: This article examines the history of English Law and the impact of the Roman legal tradition upon its evolution. In order to determine the level and depth of such influence, the author attempts to comprehensively analyze the combination of historical records, legislative bills of England and studies of the historians of English Law, who in his opinion, testify to the profound infiltration of the Roman legal culture into the English. The author particularizes the essential and formal indications of the impact demonstrated in the Constitutions of Clarendon of 1164 as an example of England’s Law of the Anglo-Norman era. A conclusion is made that the Constitutions of Clarendon, likewise the historical mirror, confirm the search for systemic approaches in establishment of English Law namely in the Roman legal culture. The fact that English Law formed its concept and mechanism on the basis of the Roman legal tradition and Christian religion, testifies in favor of the historical and essential relation between the Anglo-Saxon and Continental legal systems, which questions the substanuation and purposefulness of the traditions of their contradistinction.
