AbstractMatteo Ricci was a well-known Jesuit missionary who traveled to China in the early 17th century, and he remains an important figure in the history of the Catholic Church. Boston College has created this digital exhibit to complement an in situ exhibit on Ricci and his work in China. The site materials are divided into six sections, including "Lesson Plans", "Books", "Biographies", and "Film". In the "Books" area, visitors can learn about the books on display in the exhibit and also read two books digitized by the Boston College Library that recount Ricci's experiences in China. Visitors should not miss the "Film" area, as it includes a 54-minute documentary titled "Beyond Ricci" and a number of student films about the legacy of Matteo Ricci.
