ABSTRACT

The main materials used to analyze the Koryŏ period, namely the <Koryŏsa (, History of Koryŏ)> and <Koryŏsa chŏlyo ( , Essentials of Koryŏ History)>, include a significant amount of information pertaining to natural disasters. In addition to natural calamities such as droughts, floods, and damage from insects, these texts also dealt with astronomical phenomena such as solar and lunar eclipses, as well as comets. The <Koryŏsa>, which was rendered in the traditional annalistic and biographical style, compiled these records in separate sections entitled Astronomy ( , ch΄ŏnmunji) and the Five Elements ( , ohaengji).
