Christianity in China has a history dating back to the Tang Dynasty (618–907 CE), when Allopen—the first Nestorian missionary—arrived there in 635. In the late sixteenth century, Matteo Ricci together with other Jesuit missionaries commenced the Catholic missions to China. Protestant Christianity in China began with Robert Morrison, of London Missionary Society, who first set foot in Canton in 1807. Over the centuries, the Western missionaries and Chinese believers were engaged in the enterprise of the translation, publication, and distribution of a large corpus of Christian literature in Chinese. While the extensive distribution of Chinese publications facilitated the propagation of Christianity, the Christian messages have been subtly re-presented, re-appropriated, and transformed by these works of Chinese Christian literature. This Special Issue entitled “Christian Literature in Chinese Contexts” examines the multifarious dimensions of the production, translation, circulation, and reception of Christian literature (with “Christian” and “literature” in their broadest sense) against the cultural and sociopolitical contexts from the Tang period to modern China. The eight articles in this volume cover a variety of intriguing topics, including the literary/translation endeavors of Western missionaries in Chinese, the indigenous works of the Chinese Christians, the interaction between the Christian and Chinese literary traditions, Chinese reception of the Bible, and numerous other relevant concepts.
Profiles one hundred magazines, with an overview of the content and focus of each, a critical appraisal of the contribution, and a capsule publication history.

More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 2 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.
`Wil van den Bercken has produced a focused and sober reconsideration of the vexed question of the religious identity of Dostoevsky's fiction... In a series of patient and perceptive analyses of Dostoevsky's major novels, van den Bercken extracts their religious content and assesses it without preconceptions. Christian Fiction and Religious Realism in the Novels of Dostoevsky should appeal not only to specialists in Dostoevsky and modern fiction, but also to students and general readers.'---Robert Bird, The University of Chicago This study offers a literary analysis and theological evalution of the Christian themes in the five great novels of Dostoevsky-Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, The Adolescent, The Devils and The Brothers Karamazov. Based on a balanced method of literary analysis and theological evaluation of the texts, this study starts by discussing recent studies of Dostoevsky's religion. It then describes Dostoevsky's original literary method in dealing with religious issues - his use of paradoxes, contradictions and irony. Christian Fiction and Religious Realism in the Novels of Dostoevsky ultimately deconstructs Dostoevsky as an Orthodox writer, and reveals that the Christian themes in his novels are not ecclesiastical or confessionally theological ones, but instead are expressions of a fundamentally Christian anthropology and biblical ethics.
