Example: Emperor Kangxi (r.1661-1722)
Illustrates not on Kangxi's encounter with Catholicism but his perception of the religion and how
he compared it with his own
Whether or not his interpretations are accurate, his opinions reveal a lot of the kind of person he
was
"in this Catholic religion, the Society of Peter quarrels with the Jesuits, Bouvet quarrels with
Mariani, and among the Jusuits the Portuguese want only their own nationals in their church while
the French only want theirs"
Exchange:
