Abstract

[Extract] ‘Today,’ the Portuguese Jesuit Gasparo Gonçalves pronounced, ‘Rome has acquired in place of a lost isle, another island, actually, many islands, with many kingdoms, and countless people, from just about the most distant inhabited land in the entire world.’1 The day was 23 March 1585 and the occasion was a prestigious public consistory hosted by Pope Gregory XIII. The Pope officially received four Japanese Christians in the Vatican’s Sala Regia, the Royal Hall reserved for visiting monarchs and their representatives. The Japanese were sent by three southern daimyō, powerful feudal lords who constituted Japan’s ruling elite during the bellicose Sengoku (戦国時代: Sengokujidai) period, just prior to the Tokugawa shogunate and prohibition of Christianity.
