Item description for Missionary Approaches & Linguistics in Mainland China & Taiwan (Leuven Chinese Studies, 10) by Weiying Gu, Ku Wei Ying & Ferdinand Verbiest Foundation ...

This volume offers a series of attempts at analyzing the place of Christianity in traditional Chinese society from the different sociological, historical, theological & philological approaches. It is based on papers & discussions from the sixth international conference on Church activities in Qing & early Republican China. The articles of von Collani, Criveller, Walravens & Wiest on the position of women in the Chinese Catholic community, the shifting Jesuit methodology, Jesuit apologetics & the direct sources of the Qiqi tushou are fine examples of fundamental research. The papers of Heuschert-Laage, Kollmar-Paulenz, Pang & Stary throw an interesting light on the Manchu-Mongolian aspect of the history of the Chinese Catholic Church.

Special attention must also be given to the studies on Taiwan by Borao, Heylen & Heyns. The historical framework is mainly the seventeenth century. Although this volume is not a comprehensive treatment of the Christian mission in Ming & Qing China, it brings together studies that illuminate the manner in which the Christian missionaries developed different methods to realize their communal ideal of "the Kingdom of God on Earth".
