2nd UNESCO Ideology and Hiraizumi's World Heritage

Speaker:Kuninori Oya  /  Professor at Morioka University, Department of Literature

Hiraizumi's historical heritage was registered this year on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List. The idea that "because war is borne inside people's hearts, we have to build a fortress of peace insideour hearts" is expressed in the UNESCO charter. The spirit of longing for peace expressed in the charter can undoubtedly be described as having common points with the Pure Land world and ideology that Fujiwara No Kiyohira and Oshu Fujiwara tried to turn into reality. We will learn about this to protect the region's treasures and pass them on.
