The Christianity in Contemporary China Clippings Database is one of the Hong Kong Baptist University Library's digitization projects available for educational and research purposes via the World Wide Web free of charge. The 1660 newspaper and periodical clippings, spanning from 1950 to 1976, were originally collected by the Union Research Institute from approximately 123 Chinese and English language newspapers and periodicals, published in 9 countries or regions.
These clippings focus on Chinese government policies on religions and the development of Christianity in China from 1950 through 1976. Topics of special interest include 'Three-self Movement', the development of churches and seminaries, and the treatment of some Christians and Catholics such as 龔品梅 in China
There are basic and advanced search methods in this database. Users can search the clippings by topics, headlines, authors, newspaper or periodical titles, and/or place and date of publication. After selecting the records, users can retrieve the clippings at the Special Collections & Archives.
