About this item
At a 2010 conference in Paris, historians presented papers on rites controversies in Christian missions during the early modern period. Since then, they have significantly reworked and expanded their presentations into 14 full essays on Chinese rites and Jesuit missions; Malabar rites between mission and history; mission and Inquisition; rites controversies: far and near; idols, idolatry, and Catholic mission; and rites controversies as cultural resources. Among their topics are Chinese voices in the rites controversy: from China to Rome, revisiting the Malabar rites controversy: a paradigm of ritual dynamics in the early modern Catholic missions of South India, Jesuit and Oriental rites in the documents of the Roman Inquisition, secularizing the Andes: the effects of transcultural processes on colonial Andean rituals, and A Cross Concealed Among Flowers: interpreting a secret ritual in 17th-century Chinese Christian communities.
