Synopsis

William Farge, S. J., breaks new ground by employing a comparative approach in the service not of a study of the source text, De Imitatione Christi (The Imitation of Christ), but of an analysis of how this work of Christian moral instruction could be made comprehensible to a culture shaped by Buddhism. Tracing the differences between the 1596 and the 1610 Japanese translation of the book, Dr. Farge details an increasingly nuanced understanding on the part of the mission press translators of "the educational and religious needs of the new converts".
