1) Holy Men and Pilgrims along the Silk Road (November 24)
This public lecture is about the silk road in Chinese territory. This is a most captivating story that retraces the importance of the silk road as a religious conduit in both directions, eastward and westward (mainly Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam).
2) The History of Marian Devotion in China (November 25)
This retraces how the Marian devotion spread among Chinese Catholics from its origin to the present situation. It is also a fascinating story of endurance in faith and ups and downs in inculturation.
