Example text

The rivalry between Jesuits and Dominicans was compounded by wider religious conflict in late Renaissance Europe. For Spain the religious orders were embedded in its exploding world role, including in Europe, and even in Rome. In 1527 Spanish troops and German mercenaries under Charles V looted, burned and destroyed much of Rome, after the Vatican, France, Venice and Milan had forged the Treaty of Cognac to halt Spanish expansion in Italy and elsewhere in Europe. For these reasons the Controversy was political and Spanish, as well as intercultural, religious and Chinese.

This question will be addressed through a Controversy and the approach of motivated adaptation. Entering Chinese Spaces Entry to China required two movements, into Chinese territory and into Chinese concepts. Misled by Xavier, Ricci discarded his Jesuit dress and physically entered China dressed as a Buddhist monk. Gaining access to the mental universe of the literati involved harder barriers than entering geographic space, a movement imposing more of ‘its own terms’. To effect this move Ricci again changed dress, to that of the Chinese scholar, as depicted in surviving portraits.
