Abstract

Uigwe are royal protocols created for important royal ceremonies from the Joseon dynasty, which adopted Confucianism as the official state philosophy. During the Joseon era, uigwe helped to preserve and pass down the traditions and practices for such ceremonies. It is through these uigwe that deeper appreciation of court life in Joseon is possible. All stages of royal life are captured by uigwe including birth, investi-ture, wedding, coronation, and funerals. Uigwe also record the activities of the royal family such as banquets and feasts, receiving of foreign envoys, plowing and spinning, archery competitions, and the construction of buildings. Notably, uigwe are dedicated to making detailed records of life events. Along with the list of participants and the size of articles used, uigwe even record details such as the list of those involved in the production of uigwe and the return of articles left unused after the events, thereby making it possible to recreate these royal ceremonies today.
