Ritual and Law: Reception of Adam Laxman's expedition in Japan

P. 149-158.
Shchepkin V., Kartashov K. M.

The factual head of the Japanese government, Matsudaira Sadanobu, declared
the ritual and the law as the foundation for receiving Adam Laxman’s expedition,
the first Russian mission to Japan. The article attempts at understanding
the meaning he ascribed to those notions through the lens of several sources
related to Laxman’s expedition.
