Abstract

The researchers studied the Tcheonzamun (The Thousand Character Essay) poem of 769 to 784th characters. The poem is composed of dialogues between an aged man and a young man, or between a husband and wife of a family. The main theme of the poem is ‘recovering from defeat’. The aged man praises the young man, ‘You are magnifique, Maeg’s descendants!’. In another interpretation, there is a matrimonial expression, and there is an opinion that the ancient Chinese people had only little theological knowledge. Here, the author of Tcheonzamun expressed his deep belief in the Lord.

Key words: Dialogue, Tcheonzamun (The Thousand Character Essay), aged man and young man, husband and wife.
