AbstractIn this paper, I will reexamine the dedicatory documents placed in the Sedgwick Shōtoku based on the hypothesis that the nuns appearing on the votive texts and other documents were a;liated with the Eison order and consider the connection of this statue with medieval nuns and convents. !e dedicatory documents have already been transcribed in the Nihon chōkokushi kiso shiryō shūsei: Kamakura jidai; zōzō meikihen 日本彫刻史基礎資料集成:鎌倉時代; 造像銘記篇 (Collection of Basic Documents Concerning the History of Japanese Sculpture: Kamakura Period; Inscriptions on the Creation of Sculptures; cited hereafter as Zōzō meiki hen), volume 15. However, since the kuzushiji 崩し字 cursive style of the documents is di;cult to decipher, the transcriptions published in this work are marred by a number of mistakes. Therefore, in the following pages, I will provide reproductions of the original documents and correct the readings that I believe are incorrect. In this way, I hope to show that the nuns appearing on the votive texts and other documents were a;liated with Eison’s order, making it highly plausible that the Sedgwick Shōtoku was created by these nuns for their convent.
