The Review of Culture, international edition, presents in this issue a series of articles about the Jesuit missionary method in the 17th and 18th centuries, the evidence of Roman Catholic competitive dominance over Chinese religious sites in Macao during the period of Portuguese maritime expansion in East Asia and the trajectory of Protestant Christianity in Macao.
The Macanese community is again the target of study, focusing on the metamorphoses and redefinition of the Eurasian community in the period of transition of Macao to China. The Macanese heritage from Nagasaki as well as the impact of the Second Sino-Japanese War and the Second World War on Macao are the subjects of this section.
The Portuguese presence in the Pacific Ocean in the 16th century and the research on the life and work of Portuguese naval officer and writer Jaime do Inso, conclude this issue.
