It is impossible to understand the early history of the Society of Jesus and the Catholic Church in China without understanding the preeminent role played by the island of Macau in the Jesuit missionary endeavor; indeed, it can even be said that Catholicism would not exist in China if there was no Macau. This book seeks to restore Macau to its proper place in the history of Catholicism and the Jesuit missions in China during the Ming and Qing dynasties by offering a unique insight into subjects ranging from the origins of Jesuit missionary work on the island to the history of Jesuit education and Catholic art and music on the Chinese mainland.

About the Author:

Tang Kaijian was born in Hunan province, China. He is Professor of History at the University of Macau. His research focuses on the history of Macau, Chinese Catholic history, and the history of Chinese borders and ethnicities.

Review:

"Setting Off from Macau is a good general introduction to the spread of Christianity in China, with Kaijian's well-documented synthesis of all the improvements and missteps of the Society of Jesus, accompanied by brief mentions of the other religious orders (Dominicans, Augustinians etc.) as well. Some of the chapters of this book deal with art (music, painting, clock manufacturing) and can be inviting even for a non-historian audience."
Elisa Frei, University of Trieste/Udine. In: Journal of Early Modern History, Vol. 21, No. 3 (2017), pp. 271-273.
