UPDATE: Chapter 19: A Worldwide Faith (1500 – 1800) – Submissions: Bartolome de las Casas and Christianity in Japan
Here are our essays for Chapter 19.
Christianity goes global, to the South and Central Americas and all the way to Japan.
And of course, a lot of bloodshed and death on both sides – for the native populations as well as persecutions for Christians.
A great movie to watch about the missionary activities of the Jesuits in South America was “The Mission” starring Jeremy Irons and Robert De Niro.
Next Wed. we will meet for the final PA meeting for 2013 when we will go over Chapter 12: A Church for All People? (1100 – 1300).
As we discussed last week in our meeting, please select and choose one topic to write on and let everyone know before the end of the week what topic you will be writing on.
This way, we can avoid having multiple writings on the same topic.
