A Christian Samurai
Full Product Description
The legal proceedings against him reveal the government's embarrassment at the failure of its attempts to eliminate Christianity. This historical and literary study focuses on the personal as well as the public lives of many of the historical figures who were prominent in politics, philosophy, religion, and culture in the eighteenth century. The decadent state of Buddhism, the decline of Confucianism, and the popularity of the Yoshiwara "pleasure" quarters are some of the topics that illuminate this new history of early modern Japan and of the survival of Christianity. The first complete English translation of Baba Bunk?'s Contemporary Edo: An Album of One Hundred Monsters is included as an appendix.
A Christian Samurai by William J. Farge was published by The Catholic University of America Press in May 2016. The ISBN for A Christian Samurai is 9780813228518.
