dc.description.abstractThe aim of this thesis is two-fold. Firstly, it attempts to present a critical edition of an eighteenth century work on traditional court ceremonials in the Malay Peninsula, called Adat Raja-raja Melayu. Secondly, this thesis attempts to present a systematised structure of the ceremonies. This is to facilitate examination, leading to a consideration of those customs which are specific to the court and which contribute to the central and pre-eminent role of the king. The thesis is presented in three parts. Part One deals with the importance of the Adat Raja-raja Melayu, seen from a sociological and historical point of view. There are various works which include reference to Malay royal customs and traditions. In the Adat Raja-raja Melayu, however, the whole of the text is devoted to traditional customs and ceremonies in Malay courts. As the Adat Raja-raja Melayu has come down to us in a considerable number of versions, this part of the thesis includes a discussion on the origin of the text, the variant versions and their inter-relationship. Part Two presents a critical edition of the text, preceded by a discussion on the language of the MSS and an explanation on the principles of the text edition. Part Three presents a systematic summary of the ceremonies described, followed by an examination of each of them. Considerable attention has been given to details of the ceremonies which involve royalty and the king.
