This volume provides researchers and students of religion with an indispensable reference work on the history, cultural impact, and reshaping of Christianity in Japan.

Part II examines the complex relationship between Christianity and various dimensions of Japanese society, such as literature, politics, social welfare, education for women, and interaction with other religious traditions. Part III focuses on resources for the study of Christianity in Japan and provides a guide to archival collections, research institutes, and bibliographies. Based on both Japanese and Western scholarship, readers will find this volume to be a fascinating and important guide.

Reviews - What do customers think about Handbook of Christianity in Japan (Handbook of Oriental Studies/Handbuch Der Orientalistik - Part 5: Japan, 10)?

Disappointed  Feb 11, 2005
Having made wide use of the HoC in China - an excellent work - I am sorely disappointed with the volume on Japan. It lacks a thorough review of so many areas. Perhaps I was spoiled by the excellent work on the China edition which covered history, art, science, culture - the whole broad gambit. One could do better with an general history of Christianity in Japan. The bibliographies were terrible - listing only the most basic works, if that. The sections on Protestantism is Japan were perhaps better. The area of the Catholic missions, the whole early history are, in my estimation, poor. Not worth the money I spent on the work. Insufficient at best.
