Renier sa foi sans perdre son âme. Les catholiques japonais au début de la proscription (XVIIe s.)

Abstract : The successes obtained by the Catholic Church in Japan in the 16th century were precarious. In the first half of the 17th century, the Shogunate ended its commercial relationship with the Iberian states and the Catholics communities had to endure suppression. They were swiftly cut off their religious and lay elites; Catholicism gradually became a secret religion. Few scholars have reflected on the perception the first generations of hidden Catholics (or hidden Christians) had of their formal apostasy. I argue that the exclusivist stance of the Church had taken root in Japan. For this reason, the transition to secrecy came along with outbreaks of soteriological tensions within Christendom.
