The Virgin Mary and Catholic Identities in Chinese History

Jeremy Clarke

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter traces the history of the Catholic Church in China from the fourteenth to the seventeenth centuries. The church was very adaptable and open to using Chinese imagery to express Christian themes during this period. The tombstone of Katerina Ilioni from Yangzhou and the woodcuts produced in Christian prayer books illustrate this point. The chapter also describes the connections between Christian images of Mary and Buddhist images of Guanyin.

Keywords:   Ilioni, Guanyin, Madonna of Humility, sodalities, João da Rocha, Giulio Aleni, Jerome Nadal, Master Cheng, China, Christianity
