Catholics and Anti-Catholicism in Choson Korea

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter covers the beginning of organized interest in Catholic teachings and values, tracing who inspired the birth of a Catholic community in Korea. It then discusses the papal injunction against the use of spirit tablets in ancestor memorial services and how obedience to that rule from Rome necessitated disobeying the law in Korea. The result was the martyrdom of two early Catholics, which frightened many of the early yangban Catholics into leaving the church.

Keywords:   Chuŏsa, Tasan, guilt, spirit tablet, morality, truth
