KPS: Matteo Ricci documentary Part 3/3

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.

In the footsteps of Francis Xavier

Without Francis Xavier, the co-founder of the Society of Jesus. The grounds for Matteo Ricci's mission in China, may not have been laid. In fact, Francis Xavier actually touched on Chinese soil in the same year as Matteo Ricci was born. Although Francis Xavier never made it to the mainland and passed away on Hong Kong, the significance of his legacy cannot be understated.

 

In a pilgrimage comparable in scope to that of the Monkey King in Journey to the West, the KPS decided to produce an 8-part docudrama following the footsteps of Francis Xavier:

 

A young Asian vacationing in Europe stumbles onto the story of St. Francis Xavier and begins a personal pilgrimage that takes him to the places Xavier travelled to during his life. In this docudrama, the story of the 16th-century missionary is rediscovered through the eyes of the Asian Pilgrim. But this is more than just the story of Xavier's life retold. As the Pilgrim grows more and more involved in Xavier's story, he discovers the many parallels between Xavier's life and his own. In following the footsteps of Xavier, he meets people of different races and backgrounds, and finds himself confronting some of the important issues all Christians face today. At the end of his journey, the Pilgrim begins to understand his role as a Christian living in today's world and the meaning this has for his life. It is a pilgrimage every young Christian must make.

 

So come and join us on the final leg of Francis Xavier's pilgrimage...

On the shoulders of Matteo Ricci: Adam Schall von Bell

As we know, Matteo Ricci was the first Jesuit to make a significant impact in China however since then there has been various other Jesuits who have had shaped the history of dialogue between the western and Chinese civilisations. Among the most significant is Fr. Adam Schall von Bell

In 1618, Fr. Johann Adam Schall von Bell, a brilliant young Jesuit scholar from Germany, set out for the mysterious and still little-known land of China. Following in the footsteps of his Jesuit missionary predecessor Matteo Ricci, Schall mastered the Chinese language and diligently adapted his lifestyle to Chinese culture. When Schall's talents in astronomy and mathematics attracted the attention of the Ming Dynasty Emperor, he was appointed head of the Bureau of Astronomy and given the monumental task of renovating the Chinese calendar.

Schall retained his position even after the Ming Dynasty fell and was replaced by the Manchu Qing Empire. He became the close friend and spiritual guide of the young Qing Emperor who raised Schall to the highest official level ever attained by a westerner in Chinese history-Mandarin of the First Class. When the Emperor met with an early death, Schall was influential in choosing his successor - the great Kangxi Emperor - who came to be China's longest reigning and most respected ruler. It was the Kangxi Emperor that issued the edict giving the Catholic Church legal status in China.

In memory of Fr. Johann Adam Schall von Bell The Kuangchi Program Service, Taipei and Jiangsu Broadcasting Corporation, Nanjing have jointly produced a two-part TV docudrama following Schall throughout his long and dramatic life in China, his accomplishments, his struggles with his fellow missionaries as well as his own conscience, his persecution and narrow escape from a cruel death, and his official burial presided over by the Emperor himself.
