Bridging Cultures, Connecting Histories




T​​​​​​​his is an international research, education, and publication project administered by the  Ricci Institute for Chinese-Western Cultural History at the University of San Francisco in ​collaboration with Brill Academic Publishers  in the Netherlands. It is funded by a generous four-year grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.  The purpose of the project is to further scholarly research on Christianity in East Asia with a particular emphasis on two different types of study: (1) independent historical narratives of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean Christian communities within their respective cultural spheres; and (2) explorations of the historical connections that bind Chinese Christian culture to that of Japan and Korea within the emerging field of global history.
