    [Library Network] Kyoto University Rare Materials Digital Archive: Tannowa Document released under the joint project with Princeton University

     On 2020-04-21 (572 reads)

    Kyoto University Library Network has released the digital images of Tannowa Document the Kyoto University Museum owns in Kyoto University Rare Materials Digital Archive under the joint project with the Kyoto University Museum, the Graduate School of Letters, Kyoto University, and the Department of East Asian Studies, Princeton University.

    ▼Tannowa Document

    The documents of the Tannowa collection consist of 53 records which have been pasted into five scrolls. They cover the period from the early 13th through the late 14th century, and provide insight into the actions of the Tannowa, a warrior family who resided in the eponymous Tannowa estate in Izumi province.

    This collection is unique in that it provides, in great detail, evidence for the actions of the warriors of the central Kinai region (five provinces near Kyoto), which rarely survive. These document reveal much about social and political conditions during the turbulent 14th century, when wars were fought between the Northern and Southern courts in Izumi from 1331 through 1392.

    The most remarkable documents in this collection include edicts from chancelleries of the noble Kujō house, the oldest surviving Tannowa documents, as well as other documents of appointment or records by the Kujō proprietor (ryōke). In addition, a series of documents by Kusunoki Masanori, found in scroll two, are noteworthy, as are records from Ashikaga Takauji, the founder of Japan’s second warrior government.
