Abstract (in English)

This paper discusses the Nara Conference of Authenticity in relation to the World Heritage Convention that took place in the historic town of Nara, Japan in 1994.2 The Nara Document on Authenticity, which was elaborated at the Nara convention, was introduced in the same year in a Preparatory Workshop in Bergen, Norway3, and discussed in a broader sense in an ICOMOS Italy Conference in Naples. The first part of this paper focuses on how the term 'authenticity' was first introduced in the Charter of Venice of 1964 and then developed its definition until 1994 in relation to the World Heritage Convention. The second part introduces the Nara Document itself and re-examines the published proceedings of the Nara Conference by presenting five thematic clusters that formed around the complex term of 'authenticity'.
