There are several methods to analyze how Gyoki-group was formed as sociabilite and assumed a new character. The first method is to collect written materials and analyze them. The second is to examime the historical environment. It is also essential to study 'chishiki', comparing 'chishiki' in the time of Gyoki-group with 'chishiki' in the same area, 'chishiki' in the past, 'chishiki' in East Asia and so on.
This report shows the following :
(I) Collecting materials for this report, including the national historiographies, the written laws, the archives, the scripts chipped on tiles, Wooden Documents, hand-copying of a sutra, and the memorials. A notable material of them is Gyoki-nenpu (annals about Gyoki). But the current text of Gyoki-nenpu is inaccurate, so I try to edit a more accurate text and annotate on it.
(II) Another notable material is the hand-copying of a sutra in the third year of Tenpyo. This hand-copying of a sutra was made at Izumi area. The current text is inaccurate. Therefore, I try to edit a more accurate text and annotate on it.
(III) Comparing sociabilite of Gyoki-group with other sociabilite, such as groups at Horyu-temple, at Sairin-temple, in Ogata country, and in Ancient Korea (Sinra) known as Gangyo-group.
