Korean civilization has been influenced by different religions, such as Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and lately Christianity. However, the nucleus of the Korean culture is Shamanism, which is a conjuring religious phenomenon. Even though Shamanism belongs to the first page in the history of religions, it has been transmitted to next generations of Korea in different forms, somewhat surviving until today. A possible reason for this may be that Shamanism exhibits a dynamic and selective tradition that has adapted to different religions around it. It may also provide human beings with the blessings that they are deprived of in today’s society. In this study, the origin and development of Shamanism in Korea, including the three dynasties of Silla, Koryo and Yi, were investigated. The primitive forms of ancient beliefs of Koreans as well as the structure of Shamanism and related rituals were described. Information was also provided on Shaman ritualists and the instruments they utilized in rituals.

한국 문명은 불교, 도교, 유교 그리고 최근 기독교 등 다양한 종교에 의해 영향을 받아 왔다. 하지만, 한국 문화의 핵심은 종교 현상을 연상시키는 샤머니즘이다. 샤머니즘이 종교사의 첫페이지를 장식함에도 불구하고, 여러 형태로 한국 후세에게 전해져 내려와 오늘날까지 특정한 형태로 살아 있다. 이 연구는 한국의 샤머니즘의 기원과 발전에 관한 것이며 신라를 포함한 삼국 시대 왕국, 고려, 조선을 조사했다. 한국의 고대 신앙의 원시적 형태는 샤머니즘과 관계된 의식으로 묘사되었다. 샤먼들의 의식에 사용되는 악기에 대한 정보도 제공되었다.
