Abstract

On the medieval legends of Chujohime, an unfortunate step-daughter sentenced to die by her own father. She was woven into the story of the creation of a famous icon of the Pure Land sect, the Taima mandara, and in later times became a famous saint, the subject of statuary portraiture, Noh plays, and popular sermons. --author-supplied description
