Путь на Восток: испанский миссионер Франциск Ксавье

Новая и новейшая история. 2018. № 3. С. 207-221.

The article deals with the case of the Spanish missionary Francisco Xavier activities in Asia in the 16th century. The necessity of developing and approbating Western international strategies in the countries of the East led the Europeans to expand the study of the societies, cultures and religious practices of the peoples of the East, when contacts with "Others" demanded a comprehension and interpretation of the origin and nature of ethno-cultural diversity. The letters and reports to Europe written by Xavier gave a picture of Japanese life, and thus making the Spanish “construction” of Japan during the second half of the 16th century.
