Chinese Christian Texts Database.
The Chinese Christian Texts Database (www.arts
.kuleuven.be/sinology/cct) makes available primary and secondary sources
related to cultural contacts between China and Europe from 1582 to ca.
1840. The database comprises documents in the various fields of cultural
interaction, including religion, philosophy, science, and art. It builds
on the work of Erik Zurcher (1928-2008), who compiled a bibliography of
Chinese primary sources concerning Christianity in China in the
seventeenth century. Conversion to an online format was undertaken by Ad
Dudink and Nicolas Standaert, of Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium.
An ongoing project, the database references over 1,000 primary sources,
including printed books, manuscripts, pamphlets, and maps, and more than
4,000 secondary sources in a variety of ancient and modern Asian and
