This comprehensive guide will facilitate scholarly research concerning the history of Christianity in China as well as the wider Sino-Western cultural encounter. It will assist scholars in their search for material on the anthropological, educational, medical, scientific, social, political, and religious dimensions of the missionary presence in China prior to 1950.The guide contains nearly five hundred entries identifying both Roman Catholic and Protestant missionary sending agencies and related religious congregations. Each entry includes the organization's name in English, followed by its Chinese name, country of origin, and denominational affiliation. Special attention has been paid to identifying the many small, lesser-known groups that arrived in China during the early decades of the twentieth century. In addition, a special category of the as yet little-studied indigenous communities of Chinese women has also been included. Multiple indexes enhance the guide's accessibility.

Now revised and updated to incorporate numerous new materials, this is the major source for researching American Christian activity in China, especially that of missions and missionaries. It provides a thorough introduction and guide to primary and secondary sources on Christian enterprises and individuals in China that are preserved in hundreds of libraries, archives, historical societies, headquarters of religious orders, and other repositories in the United States. It includes data from the beginnings of Christianity in China in the early eighth century through 1952, when American missionary activity in China virtually ceased. For this new edition, the institutional base has shifted from the Princeton Theological Seminary (Protestant) to the Ricci Institute for Chinese-Western Cultural Relations at the University of San Francisco (Jesuit), reflecting the ecumenical nature of this monumental undertaking.

The history of the Catholic missions in China, more than that of any other mission field, displays bright lights and dark shadows. From the time of Christianity's first contact with China in the 13th century, the Church achieved victorious expansion and had well-founded hopes for the conversion of the whole Chinese nation: but she also experienced tragic failures. The history of the Chinese missions is rich in great initiatives, admirable talents, and heroic sacrifices. In this vineyard of the Lord, along with others who were not always at the height of their sublime vocation, there worked great men, saints, martyrs. The 18th century however, is one of the less inviting periods of Chinese mission history. After the great successes and hopes of the previous century, there followed frustrations, persecution, failure and decline. Nevertheless, even in this period of decadence, there were great men on the scene. One of them was Gottfried Xavier von Laimbeckhoven, Jesuit, missionary and bishop. Over a span of fifty years he was in the center of events and, in the light of this great though tragic figure, we can study the history of the missions of China for the period between 1738 and 178
