Historical Examples of Inculturation in Catholic China

One of our readers in the orient, in followup to some recent images which presented some historical examples of Catholic inculturation in China and Japan, sent in the following photos which show forth further examples.


An altar found in ChongQing, China. Take note of the ornamentation of the altar itself.


A Chinese depiction of the Annunciation


A French Missionary priest (who was the spiritual brother of St. Therese of Liseaux we are told). Note the dress of the priest.
