Excerpt from The Jesuits in China and the Legation of Cardinal De Tournon an Examination of Conflicting Evidence and an Attempt at an Impartial Judgment
The controversy on the Chinese Rites which agitated the Church of Rome during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, is one which, as it involved the interests as well as the orthodoxy of the religious orders and even the veracity of the disputants, can never be impartially treated by a member of the Roman Communion. The bitterness with which it was carried on for more than a century, the voluminous extent of the documentary evidence and of the argumentative treatises which have been written upon it, which form a library in themselves, and the almost hand-to-hand conflict of the witnesses, render the impartial judgment of the whole case, to those interested impossible, and to the most disinterested, a work of extreme difficulty.
