Sia il libro che la raccolta di dati sono il risultato di un progetto di ricerca finanziato dalla FCT – Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (Agenzia nazionale portoghese di finanziamento per la scienza, la ricerca e la tecnologia) dal titolo Interactions Between Rivals. The Christian Mission and Buddhist Sects in Japan (c.1549- c.1647) (PTDC/ HISHIS/118404/ 2010).

I risultati sono il frutto del lavoro di un team interdisciplinare di quattordici ricercatori europei, statunitensi e giapponesi e della collaborazione di tre istituzioni: il CHAM – Centre for the Humanities (School of Social Sciences and Humanities, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa – NOVA FCSH), in qualità di unità promotrice, l’École Française d’Extrême-Orient (EFEO, Parigi) e la Scuola Italiana di Studi sull’Asia Orientale (ISEAS, Kyōto).

The Data Collection aims at being a valuable tool in the research of early-modern Japanese Buddhist forms, as well as the Jesuit way of proceeding in the Japanese Mission, and their interactions and relations through time. The analysis of the data according to specific subject matters and contents allows the evolution of the first European discourse on Buddhism, the changes in their interactions with monks and Japanese authorities, and an understanding of Japanese Buddhist practices in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Both the Book and the Data Collection result from a Research Project funded by FCT – Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, I.P. (the Portuguese National Funding Agency for Science, Research and Technology) with the title Interactions Between Rivals. The Christian Mission and Buddhist Sects in Japan (c.1549– c.1647) (reference: FCT – PTDC/ HISHIS/118404/ 2010).

The outputs are the result of work by an interdisciplinary team of fourteen researchers and the collaboration of three institutions: CHAM – Centre for the Humanities (School of Social Sciences and Humanities, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa – NOVA FCSH), as promoting Research Unit, the École Française d’Extrême- Orient (EFEO, Paris) and the Italian School of East Asian Studies (ISEAS, Kyōto).
