Part 3Part 1Part 2

This three part documentary was recorded over 20 years ago by the Guangqi film studios, but takes us back 400 years with re-enactments of conversations that would have actually happened between the Jesuit Matteo Ricci and his friend Xu Guangqi. A challenge that all western students of Chinese can relate to in part, Ricci shows us what it was to struggle through the strokes of a Chinese character before the days of the The Grand Ricci, let alone the brand new digital version.  Fittingly Ricci is played by Jesuit Jerry Martinson.


To purchase the full version of the DVD Matteo Ricci in Chinese contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Also available are educational documentaries on Matteo Ricci's good friend Xu Guangqi and two other Jesuits influential in Sino-Western history - Adam Schall von Bell and Francis Xavier. All available in Chinese and English.

民國四十七年,台灣傳播電視界尚是一片渾沌,然而天主教耶穌會美籍神父卜立輝已經預見了大眾傳播勢必會對台灣社會發展產生深遠之影響,因此成立了「光啟錄音社」,並製作了風靡全台的「小小廣播劇」--- 這就是光啟社的前身。
