This volume provides researchers and students of religion with a valuable reference work on the history, cultural impact and reshaping of Christianity in Japan. Divided into three parts, part 1 focuses on Christianity in Japanese history and includes studies of the Roman Catholic mission in pre-modern Japan, the "hidden Christian" tradition, Protestant missions in the modern period, Bible translations, and theology in Japan. Part 2 examines the complex relationship between Christianity and various dimensions of Japanese society, such as literature, politics, social welfare, education for women, and interaction with other religious traditions. Part 3 focuses on resources for the study of Christianity in Japan and provides a guide to archival collections, research institutes and bibliographies. Based on both Japanese and Western scholarship, readers should find this volume to be a fascinating and important guide.
