0 Reviews
This volume comes out of a major international conference held by the Ricci Institute for Chinese-Western Cultural History and the Center for the Pacific Rim at the University of San Francisco in October 1999. The timing on the eve of the twenty-first century is perceived by the organizers as a historical opportunity to reflect afresh on Sino-Western cultural relations, with particular regard to the experience of Christianity in China. On the basis of the broad review of the past and the present relationship, the focus shifts to the future with its great promise and potential pitfalls. The contributors include authorities from China (including Hong Kong and Taiwan), Europe (including Russia and Eastern Europe), and North America.
