|Abstract:||「慚愧祖師」信仰源於粵東韓江流域中游山區，其神祇性質為唐代佛教高僧轉變而成的民間信仰俗神。由於邊陲的自然與人文環境因素，當地成長的高僧變成了法力 強大的祖師公神祇，能為地方救難解厄。然而在信仰創化過程中，缺少國家力量提升神祇地位，故只停留為鄉土型神祇。本信仰在於清代臺灣拓墾時期移殖中部山 區，成為地域性信仰，此亦與邊陲區域的自然環境與社會特質有關，因而在中部邊陲山地創化了防番的首要功能，以及醫藥、堪輿、除妖等多重功能，並結合了邊陲 區域各種不同來源的社群。 大坪頂地區位於林屺埔區域的東南山區，為林屺埔開發歷史上的邊陲地區，該地的慚愧祖師信仰擴散與區域的發展進程緊密結合，並作為核心向附近較晚開發的山區 再度傳播，呈顯出區域開發過程中的新邊陲，故此信仰呈顯出邊陲地區不同於其他穩定區域的人-地關係。本例足以說明臺灣民間信仰中，信仰者、廟神、廟宇與區 域四者的生命成長是互為對照、交融並進的，以存在需求的角度來看待其各種創化，更能了解臺灣民間信仰的意義。|
