Summary
'The Luminous Way to the East' explores the little-known story of an encounter of Christianity with Central and Eastern Asia that took place more than a thousand years ago. It provides a documented look at what was not only the first stage in the history of Christianity's dialogue with Asian cultural and religious traditions, but also one of the most extraordinary and fruitful moments in that history. The core of the book is a richly annotated English translation of the Chinese Christian documents produced in Tang China (618-907). It offers the reader an introduction to the extraordinary missionary diffusion of the Church of the East from the Middle to the Far East along the Silk Road
