  • Suppression and restoration of the Society of Jesus in China

    Mateos, Fernando ([Macau Ricci Institute], [2014])
    Fr. Mateos' s thirty-two pages well documented paper is based on Jesuit correspondence and original documents and depicts three main climax periods of the Jesuit exile in China; suppression of the Society, tribulation of its former members and then their final incorporation into the New Society. The paper gives overview of the Jesuits geographical dispersion and activities in various locations in China; it also stresses the crucial role of superiors and their decisions, their sorrows and afflictions especially manifested by Fathers; François Bourgeois, Superior of the French Jesuits and by Jean Amiot, an astronomer and writer. In 1778, Fr. Louis de Poirot, one from five ex-Jesuits who survived in Peking wrote several letters to the Congregation of Propaganda requesting the re-establishment of the Society of Jesus in China. In the end, the 78-year-old de Poirot remained in Peking alone, and peacefully passed away on December 13, 1813, eight months before the solemn publication of Pius VII’s Bull, “Sollicitudo Omnium Ecclesiarum”, restoring the Society of Jesus in the whole world. Here comes account of the revival of the Jesuit presence in China, its circumstances, challenges and opportunities opened to the Chinese mission in the New Society.
  • Local Culture and Early Parenting in China : A Case Study on Chinese Christian Mothers’ Childrearing Experiences

    Yan, Jun (Globethics.net, 2019)
    With the increase of Chinese Christians born in the “post-70s” and “post-80s” generations, the issue of early childhood education in Christian families deserves attention from an academic standpoint in these days. This study aims to interpret the meaning of Christian families’ childrearing experiences within the social and cultural contexts of China. It explores the educational philosophy of Chinese Christian families and examines how it influenced their childrearing activities through the detailed descriptions of Chinese Christian mothers’ childrearing experiences. Christian fathers are more involved in education than non-Christian. The parents act with the dual cultural orientation of “Sincization” and “Christianization”.

  • Chromosomal Location of Traits Associated with Wheat Seedling Water and Phosphorus Use Efficiency under Different Water and Phosphorus Stresses

    Cao, Hong-Xing; Zhang, Zheng-Bin; Sun, Cheng-Xu; Shao, Hong-Bo; Song, Wei-Yi; Xu, Ping (2009)
    The objective of this study was to locate chromosomes for improving water and phosphorus-deficiency tolerance of wheat at the seedling stage. A set of Chinese Spring-Egyptian Red wheat substitution lines and their parent Chinese Spring (recipient) and Egyptian Red (donor) cultivars were measured to determine the chromosomal locations of genes controlling water use efficiency (WUE) and phosphorus use efficiency (PUE) under different water and phosphorus conditions. The results underlined that chromosomes 1A, 7A, 7B, and 3A showed higher leaf water use efficiency (WUE1 = Pn/Tr; Pn = photosynthetic rate; Tr = transpiration rate) under W-P (Hoagland solution with 1/2P), -W-P (Hoagland solution with 1/2P and 10% PEG). Chromosomes 7A, 3D, 2B, 3B, and 4B may carry genes for positive effects on individual plant water use efficiency (WUEp = biomass/ TWC; TWC = total water consumption) under WP ( Hoagland solution), W-P and -W-P treatment. Chromosomes 7A and 7D carry genes for PUE enhancement under WP, - WP (Hoagland solution with 10% PEG) and W-P treatment. Chromosome 7A possibly has genes for controlling WUE and PUE simultaneously, which indicates that WUE and PUE may share the same genetic background. Phenotypic and genetic analysis of the investigated traits showed that photosynthetic rate (Pn) and transpiration rate (Tr), Tr and WUE1 showed significant positive and negative correlations under WP, W-P, -WP and -W-P, W-P, -WP treatments, respectively. Dry mass (DM), WUEP, PUT (phosphorus uptake) all showed significant positive correlation under WP, W-P and -WP treatment. PUE and phosphorus uptake (PUT = P uptake per plant) showed significant negative correlation under the four treatments. The results might provide useful information for improving WUE and PUE in wheat genetics.
  • Mapping 'Chinese' Christian Schools in Indonesia: Ethnicity, Class and Religion

    HOON, Chang Yau (Institutional Knowledge at Singapore Management University, 2010-12-01)
    Schools are not ‘‘innocent’’ sites of cultural transmission. They play an active and significant role in transmitting values and inculcating culture. Schools also serve as a site for the maintenance of boundaries and for the construction of identities. Previous studies have recognized the relationship between education and identity. Building on existing literature, this study examines the ways in which Christian schools can be a site for the construction and maintenance of religious, ethnic and class identities of the ethnic Chinese in Indonesia. The study surveys four prestigious ‘‘Chinese’’ Christian schools in Jakarta. Through a brief but thorough profiling of the schools, the study explores the complexity of and identifies issues associated to religion, ethnicity and class, in relations to Chinese-Indonesians and the Indonesian society at large.
  • 《淨土聖賢錄》之女人往生研究

    中國文學系所; 張火慶; Hwo-Ching Chang; 余昭純; Yu, Chao-Chun (中國文學系所, 2012)
    對女性淨土行者而言,畢生最大的修行成就,無非是能夠順利往生西方極樂世界,因此當生命走到盡頭,臨命終剎那之間的緊要關頭,將對生前修持淨業的成果進行總驗收。由於受到傳統觀念的束縛,女性於承擔大部分家務責任之後,幾乎已耗盡所有的時間與精力,因此女性行者修行的先天環境,普遍存在較男性更多的困難;然而儘管挫折與艱辛始終橫亙於眼前,歷代女性往生淨土的修行成就卻絲毫不遜於男性,反而因為現實環境的種種磨難,進而更激發女性往生淨土的意願與決心。 《淨土聖賢錄》是淨土行者往生西方極樂世界的感應故事集,內容強調事例主角的修行實踐與往生成就,對於往生過程的描述,捨棄一般死亡經驗的哀傷哭泣,取而代之的,是將死亡歷程刻畫成莊嚴神聖的美妙場景,試圖扭轉世人對於死亡的刻板印象。本論文考察《淨土聖賢錄》女性往生事例,藉由觀察女性淨土行者面對死亡的態度,剖析女性信仰淨土的來源與心理,試圖瞭解其往生淨土的動力與表現;進一步探討女性對於淨土教義的修行實踐方式,包括《往生論》所提出「五念門」的淨土修行方法、有關往生西方淨土所需修持的「淨業」內容,以及淨土經典對於淨土法門修持的具體闡述。歷代女性為了追求往生極樂淨土,其主要行持為「一心念佛」,為了促成往生淨土,所採行的諸種往生助行,以及往生過程中所出現的種種瑞應現象,同樣成為本論文關注的焦點。
  • Socialization in Chinese Academic Immigrants' Conversion to Christianity

    Jiang, Zhan (TopSCHOLAR®, 2009-11-01)
    The aim of this research is to find social factors in Chinese academic immigrants’ conversion to Christianity using the perspectives of symbolic interactionism and social exchange theory. The research data are drawn from observation and interviews. Fourteen Chinese student converts were interviewed. The analysis focuses on the interaction between recruits and Christians. Results supported the idea that religious conversion happens progressively. Affective bonds are essential for the religious conversion of Chinese academic immigrants. Chinese Christian converts experienced five stages. First, they develop affective commitment to Christians close to them and regard them as their reference group. Second, an emergent generalized other is internalized in recruits’ minds through recruits’ acceptance of symbolic language in Christianity and interaction with Chinese Christians. Third, recruits understand the Bible with the perspective of Christians. Fourth, as the socially defined reality reinforces their beliefs and the affective bonds develop, recruits confess their sins and decide to believe in God. Finally, recruits strengthen their understanding of Christianity by intensifying interactions with Chinese Christians.

    [[other]]行政院國家科學委員會; [[other]]東海大學宗教研究所; 趙星光; Chao, Hsing-Kuang (2008)
    [[abstract]]本研究的目的在於透過對台灣、香港與大陸兩岸三地,基督(新)教會信徒宗教認同與信仰內涵的調查,試圖對華人社會基督教徒宗教信仰中的傳統宗教文化與現代性內涵,與其相關的影響因素作一個分析性的瞭解,並且嘗試為建立華人基督教徒宗教性量表,以及單一宗教宗教性量表的建構與執行投下一顆墊腳石。 本研究自二OO六年八月開始執行,並於二OO九年十月底完成「華人基督徒宗教認同與宗教信仰現代代性資料庫」的建置工作。本調查研究的問卷設計共分為五大主題:第一與第五個主題分別為受訪個案的宗教信仰與社經地位背景;第二個主題為受訪個案對基督教保守信仰核心教義的認同程度;第三個主題為個人的基督徒身分與對基督教會的認同;第四個主題包括對傳統宗教文化核心價值與現代性相關內涵的認同程度。本資料庫共蒐集台灣、香港與中國大陸地區基督徒有效問卷資料共三千一百五十八份,其中台灣兩千一百九十一份,香港三百八十份,中國大陸五百八十七份。全部調查資料已建置成SPSS資料格式,並以電子資料庫方式儲存於http://www2.thu.edu.tw/~religion/3.teach-teach%20chao.htm ,國內外學者專家在知會研究者後得下載使用本資料庫之資料。
  • 教會、兒童教育與宣教工作-以基督教中興新村浸信會主日學為例

    [[abstract]]本論文論述基督教教育及在中興新村浸信會的兒童教育和宗教活動、兒童宣教事工,並深入的對其主日學作分析,試圖從歷史資料解讀宗教教育及主日學的目標與活動型態,以及在教會所扮演的角色及地位,並以實地觀察及調查,分析現今中興新村主日學與社區的兒童與環境之交互影響、重要的變項及相關性。 在本文中,透過歷史的回顧,可以看到,從小就接受兒童宗教教育,是每個猶太人的責任和義務,這種宗教教育,不但使猶太教的信仰能歷盡滄桑和迫害而不消滅,且為基督宗教的兒童宗教教育提供了不少的借鏡。 在本章中,也不厭其繁的概述宗教教育歷史的目的,就是希望透過這漫長的歷史回顧,可以整體性的看到宗教教育的傳授者、接受者、場所、教材和方式等,因著不同時代的社會、文化、政治,經濟、宗教和教育結構,而產生的差異變化情形。 基督教教育必須充份瞭解並利用現代教育的知識與理論、技巧和方法,才成為有效的教育。基督教宗教教育注重全人發展,在基督教宗教教育中,不單注重知識的傳授,也注重態度和信仰的培養,以及技能和行動的訓練。基督教宗教教育不只是教育,也不只是宗教教育,而是基督教的宗教教育。 依筆者參與觀察此項事工10個多月,這樣一個事工,不應只侷限在一個小部門,而應定位在教會整體宣教事工的一環。因此,主日學其成長發展的歷程中,教會牧長的投入是否視主日學為最重要的事工之一,佔相當大的影響,其次教會是否敞開大門,透過各樣管道,營造適合的場地,並在活動、課程設計上,迎合學生的興趣,活化主日學,使學生愛上主日學、吸引學生參加主日學。最後兒童主日學的事工更應著眼於對兒童信仰根基的栽培,和老師本身的聖經知識、教導的技巧及如何與學生有人格上的接觸,並正確的輔導等,在兒童主日學的事工中,不僅要讓出入教會的兒童受到造就,也要在同時讓出入兒童主日學中擔任教導職位的主教老師、助教老師及才藝老師都能一起成長,這才是最完美、最有遠(願)景的事工。
