The Original Western Confucian

Father Maryknoller in Korea on a man who "never entered Korea but influenced the life of early Korean Christians through his books" — Lessons Learned From Matteo Ricci. "Ricci not only introduced European knowledge to China but also introduced Chinese religion and philosophy to Europe," we are reminded. "Ricci's method of evangelizing, according to one scholar, can be briefly stated: He introduced European knowledge and Renaissance culture to the educated Chinese, respecting Chinese customs and rites and adapting them, what we now call inculturation." Tolle, lege.
