The purpose of this article is to analyze the religious topography of
Jeju island, following a exploratory trip made by the Dept. of Religious
Studies of SNU. On Jeju Island, there is a dynamic and vigorous
interaction between human life and religion. The harsh environment of
Jeju Island has influenced the formation of the local communities which
can be often equated to religious communities. It is the result of
people who failed to overcome the hardships attempting to seek a
religious solution.
The religious topography of Jeju can be explained with aspects of the
central and the peripheral. In the central part, Shamanism (巫) is
located. It was the only religious pattern till the Korea Dynasty.
Although various religions have been imported, shamanism has taken
charge of the main role in the religious topography. In the peripheral
part, there are various religions such as Buddhism, Confucianism and
Christianity. They adjoin shamanism which form the central part. Both
of two parts affect each ocher and there are divisions of sacred space
which are found in both parts. On Jeju island, inter-religious contacts
and mutual influence among the religions still continue today.
