Journey to the East by Liam Matthew Brockey
Book DescriptionIt was one of the great encounters of world history: highly educated European priests confronting Chinese culture for the first time in the modern era. This 'journey to the East' is explored by Liam Brockey as he retraces the path of the Jesuit missionaries who sailed from Portugal to China, believing that, with little more than firm conviction and divine assistance, they could convert the Chinese to Christianity. Moving beyond the image of Jesuits as cultural emissaries, his book shows how these priests translated Roman Catholicism into the Chinese cultural frame and eventually claimed two hundred thousand converts.
