Two Universities and Two Eras of Catholicism in China: Fu Jen University and Aurora University, 1903-1937
Xian, Liu
Christian Higher Education, v8 n5 p405-421 2009
This paper compares Fu Jen University in Beijing and Aurora University in Shanghai--the two comprehensive Catholic universities located in the two largest cities of China in modern history--and analyzes four aspects: identity, educational idea, curriculum, and campus culture. It was found that the differences between Aurora and Fu Jen resulted from the different viewpoints of the following three essential issues: future reflections, attitude to local culture, and concern for Chinese society. The three differences between Aurora and Fu Jen in viewpoints embody the successive eras of Chinese Catholicism: the colonial era and the indigenized era. (Contains 2 tables.)
