Chapter Summary

According to shamanist myths in the Korean mainland and Cheju Island, the creation God separated the sky and the earth, split the sun and moon to create stars, made day and night, and separated living spirits from ghosts. This chapter narrates a myth about ' if you are the great shaman, do you possess the gift of miracles'? Lee, magistrate, destroyed five hundred shrines and five hundred temples. Lastly, Magistrate Lee tried to destroy the last shrine where the great shaman called Ko Manho had been worshipping. Magistrate Lee called the great shaman Ko. When the great shaman was prone in front of the office, the governor asked, 'Are you great shaman Ko?' 'Yes', said the shaman. 'If you are the great shaman, do miracles occur in your shrine?' asked Magistrate Lee. 'Yes, miracles do occur in my shrine', said the shaman.
