90. [Blunden]. ‘Christianity in Japan’. Review of Christian Century in Japan, 1549-1650, by C. R. Boxer. TLS, 14 September 1951, p. 585.

Blunden finds Boxer’s account ‘masterly’ and offers his own observations about the persecution of Christians and expulsion of foreigners in Japan in the seventeenth century, which he believes ‘must be thoughtfully reconsidered in connexion with the latest phases of Japanese history’. Includes knowledgeable reference to Oda Nobunaga (Ap), Toyotomi Hideyoshi (Ap), and Tokugawa Ieyasu (Ap).
