This study aims to inquire the text structural differences of the variants of the ‘revised’ Sahyangga, the best-known Korean Roman Catholic didactic poem(Cheonjugasa). The revision, which might be made in Gyeongsang province by an anonymous person who is not the original author, made Sahyangga longer, so that the revised version could include detailed explanations for the Roman Catholic dogmas as well as the religious problems of 19th-century Korean people. But there are some text structural differences between the variants of the revised Sahyangga. The features of those differences will be discussed and the best transmitted variant will be selected in this study.
