Críticas:

Ronnie Po-chia Hsia's A Jesuit in the Forbidden City is hands down the best scholarly biography of Ricci to date, and unlikely to be surpassed ... the book provides an account that is accessible as well as thorough. ( Timothy Brook, Literary Review)

Deeply learned yet rivetingly readable, R Po-Chia Hsia's biography introduces a remarkable figure whose life represents a dramatic cultural collision of east and west. ( Michael Kerrigan, The Scotsman)

A riveting read and highly detailed, yet is an accessible retelling of Matteo Ricci's mission to China, recapturing both the exhilaration and the dangerous exoticism of his life. ( James Kelly, The Tablet)

Meticulously researched... A Jesuit in the Forbidden City will be the definitive biography for decades to come...fascinating ( Jill Raitt, Catholic Books Review)

Well-researched, well-written, insightful biography ( Thomas McCoog SJ, Thinking Faith)

Hsia enables us to see the Jesuit's achievement in a much fuller and richer context than hitherto... he deserves our considerable gratitude for leaving us with such a vivid and affecting, yet critically acute, portrait. ( Simon Ditchfield, University of York)

Accessible yet highly readable, A Jesuit in the Forbidden City is a riveting read and probably the most fully detailed re-telling of Matteo Ricci's mission to China, re-capturing the exhilaration but dangerous exoticness of his life. ( James Kelly, Catholic Times)

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2010. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 234 x 158 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A 16th century Italian Jesuit, Matteo Ricci was the founder of the Catholic Mission in China and one of the most famous missionaries of all time. A pioneer in bringing Christianity to China, Ricci spent twenty eight years in the country, in which time he crossed the cultural divides between China and the West by immersing himself in the language and culture of his hosts. Even 400 years later, he is still one of the best known westerners in China, celebrated for introducing western scientific and religious ideas to China and for explaining Chinese culture to Europe. The first critical biography of Ricci to use all relevant sources, both Chinese and Western, A Jesuit in the Forbidden City tells the story of a remarkable life that bridged Counter-Reformation Catholic Europe and China under the Ming dynasty. Hsia follows the life of Ricci from his childhood in Macerata, through his education in Rome, to his sojourn in Portuguese India, before the start of his long journey of self-discovery and cultural encounter in the Ming realm. Along the way, we glimpse the workings of the Portuguese maritime empire in Asia, the mission of the Society of Jesus, and life in the European enclave of Macau on the Chinese coast, as well as invaluable sketches of Ricci s fellow Jesuits and portraits of the Chinese mandarins who formed networks indispensible for Ricci s success. Examining a range of new sources, Hsia offers important new insights into Ricci s long period of trial and frustration in Guangdong province, where he first appeared in the persona of a foreign Buddhist monk, before the crucial move to Nanchang in 1595 that led to his sustained intellectual conversation with a leading Confucian scholar and subsequent synthesis of Christianity and Confucianism in propagating the Gospels in China. With his expertise in cartography, mathematics and astronomy, Ricci quickly won recognition, especially after he had settled in Nanjing in 1598, the southern capital of the Ming dynasty. As his reputation and friendships grew, Ricci launched into a sharp polemic against Buddhism, while his career found its crowning achievement in the imperial capital of Beijing, leaving behind a life, work, and legacy that is still very much alive today.
