. Small 4to. Pp. 22. Later (19th century) green boards, cloth spine. With early eccleciastical stamp on title and remains of old shelf label on upper cover. Some light foxing. First edition. Rare Spanish Dominican report on Confucian funeral customs in Tonkin, and about the Jesuits tolerance of these rites. Only one library copy found; at Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana. Vietnam, along with Korea and Japan, has heavily been influenced by China concerning its Confucian culture of certain funerary rites, especially in the cult of ancestors. The Chinese Rites Controversy and the Roman position regarding ancestor worship affected Vietnamese Catholicism as well, profoundly and extensively, even until today. The Dominicans and Augustinians contrary to the Jesuits refused any adaptation to local customs and were horrified by the practices of the Jesuits. Benito Llobressols (d.1800) was born in Gerona and served as Apostolic missionary in Tonkin.
