Engi shiki
Text A collection of detailed regulations concerning government administration under the ritsuryô codes, in use from the seventh to the late ninth century. The Engi shiki, in 50 volumes, was formulated with consideration of two preceding compilations, the Kônin and Jôgan; of these three major works, only the Engi shiki is extant today. It is a compilation of laws detailing imperial court ceremonies and etiquette, penal measures, local administration, etc. Compilation was begun in 905, and the completed work was presented to the court in 927, but it was not actually promulgated until 967. Compilers included Fujiwara Tokihira and Fujiwara Tadahira. The first ten volumes are regulations concerning Shinto.
