Product Overview

This guide is for those who want to experience the richness and vitality of the Catholic Church in Shanghai, a relentlessly commercial but surprisingly spiritual Chinese city. Author Jeremy Clarke, S.J., a member of the Australian Province of the Society of Jesus, gives clear directions on how to get to each of the sites presented here. He explains something of their history and significance; includes information on such practical matters as the character of the area that surrounds the site, nearby landmarks, and public parks; and offers tips on etiquette and local customs. The 18 sites include St. Ignatius Cathedral (also known as Xujiahui Catholic Church), the Shanghai Jiao Tong University Medical School, and the Shanghai Museum (which includes paintings by the 17th–century Jesuit Father Wu Li in its collection).
