Chapter Summary

For over three centuries, scholars have studied the early Jesuit missions to Japan and New France. Academic works on the Japanese mission were originally produced by westerners, who were joined by Japanese scholars at the end of the nineteenth century. The academic studies about the Christian missions in Japan can be divided into five groupings, of which four are western and one, Japanese. The historiography of the Jesuit missionary work in New France can be divided into six main categories. In the first category is one study, published in France in the eighteenth century. The second and third groups include French- and English-language histories in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In the fourth and fifth categories, one finds secular scholarship and ecclesiastical accounts, from the earlier twentieth century to the present.

Keywords: Japan; Jesuit missions; New France; twentieth century
