520    Written by one of the leading scholars of Japanese 
       religion, this multivolume project promises to be a 
       milestone in our understanding of the mythico-ritual 
       system of esoteric Buddhism specifically the nature and 
       roles of deities in the religious world of medieval Japan.
       Bernard Faure introduces readers to medieval Japanese 
       religiosity and shows the centrality of the gods in 
       religious discourse and ritual, presenting the gods 
       (including buddhas and demons) as meaningful and powerful 
       interlocutors and not merely as cyphers for social groups 
       or projections of the human mind. Throughout Faure engages
       insights drawn from structuralism, post-structuralism, and
       Actor-network theory to retrieve the "implicit pantheon" 
       (as opposed to the "explicit orthodox pantheon") of 
       esoteric Japanese Buddhism (Mikky審. Through a number of 
       case studies, Faure describes and analyzes the impressive 
       mythological and ritual efflorescence that marked the 
       medieval period, not only in the religious domain, but 
       also in the political, artistic, and literary spheres. He 
       displays vast knowledge of his subject and presents his 
       research much of it in largely unstudied material with 
       theoretical sophistication. His arguments and analyses 
       assume the centrality of the iconographic record, and he 
       has brought together a rich and rare collection of images.
       This emphasis on iconography and the ways in which it 
       complements, supplements, or deconstructs textual 
       orthodoxy is critical to a fuller comprehension of a set 
       of medieval Japanese beliefs and practices. It also offers
       a corrective to the traditional division of the field into
       religious studies, which typically ignores the images, and
       art history, which oftentimes overlooks their ritual and 
       religious meaning.--Publisher
