This is an international research, education, and publication project administered by the Ricci Institute for Chinese-Western Cultural History at the University of San Francisco in collaboration with Brill Academic Publishers in the Netherlands. It is funded by a generous four-year grant from the Henry Luce Foundation. The purpose of the project is to further scholarly research on Christianity in East Asia with a particular emphasis on two different types of study: (1) independent historical narratives of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean Christian communities within their respective cultural spheres; and (2) explorations of the historical connections that bind Chinese Christian culture to that of Japan and Korea within the emerging field of global history.
The primary aim of the project is to launch a new academic monograph series entitled
"Studies in the History of Christianity in East Asia".
The academic goals of the project include:
