The true meaning of the Lord of heaven = T'ien-chu shih-i by Matteo Ricci( Book )

31 editions published between 1601 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For two thousand years explorers, merchants, missionaries, and diplomats have been building bridges between China and the West. In the late sixteenth century, Matteo Ricci, an Italian Jesuit, initiated a more direct encounter between Chinese culture and Western Christianity, which has continued ever since. One of Ricci's most famous works, The true meaning of the Lord of heaven, was written in Chinese in form of a dialogue. In it, Ricci attempted to introduce Chinese literati to some of the fundamental ideas of the Judeo-Christian tradition. Based upon conversations Ricci had with Chinese scholars, this work allows us to get a sense of how he explained to his Chinese friends Western views about the purpose of life, human nature, and the existence of God. This revised bilingual edition of the first translation of Ricci's text into English (St. Louis: Institute of Jesuit Sources, 1985) helps us, by means of a substantial introduction and footnotes, to situate Ricci's dialogue in its religious and cultural context.."-- Back cover
On friendship : one hundred maxims for a Chinese prince = Jiaoyou lun by Matteo Ricci( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On Friendship distilled the best ideas on friendship from Renaissance Latin texts into one hundred pure and provocative Chinese maxims. Written in a masterful classical style, Ricci's sayings established his reputation as a great sage and the sentiments still ring true. Available for the first time in English, On Friendship matches a carefully edited Chinese text with a facing-page English translation and includes notes on sources and biographical, historical, and cultural information. Still admired in China for its sophistication and inspirational wisdom, On Friendship is a delightful cross-cultural work by a crucial and fascinating historical figure. It is also an excellent tool for learning Chinese, pairing a superb model of the classical language with an accessible and accurate translation." --

7 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in Italian and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Il testo qui pubblicato, noto anche come i Commentari della Cina, è il resoconto dell{u2019}avventurosa penetrazione, fra il 1582 e il 1610, della prima missione cristiana in Cina che abbia lasciato traccia durevole. Esso fu scritto da Matteo Ricci (Macerata 1552-Pechino 1610), il principale artefice dell'impresa, nell{u2019}ultimo scorcio della sua vita, e completato da Nicholas Trigault con alcune informazioni tratte da appunti ricciani e con la narrazione della morte dell{u2019}autore e delle trattative per la sua sepoltura in terra cinese. Il primo libro contiene una descrizione sistematica e dettagliata della vita, usi, abitudini e istituzioni della Cina dell{u2019}epoca, tanto da rendere l'opera per secoli la fonte principale attraverso cui l'Europa ha attinto notizie su quell{u2019}impero. Nei libri successivi si ha quindi la narrazione dell'impresa, con le sue fasi per lungo tempo alterne e il coronamento con l{u2019}ingresso e la fondazione di una missione a Pechino. Si vede bene quanti pochi mezzi materiali i missionari abbiano avuto a disposizione, ma anche lo spiegamento di forze intellettuali e culturali, l'acume diplomatico, e spesso l'astuzia, con cui essi supplirono a tale mancanza. Al di là degli espedienti più noti {u2013} l'apprendimento tempestivo del cinese, il travestimento da bonzi, poi da letterati confuciani {u2013}, i gesuiti mirarono in primo luogo a mostrare l'ampiezza e la profondità dei risultati raggiunti dalla cultura in Occidente. Lasciando inizialmente a margine la dottrina, Matteo Ricci {u2013} reduce dalla più avanzata formazione scientifica che un uomo della seconda metà del '500 potesse avere {u2013} si curò principalmente della traduzione in cinese dei libri di Euclide, della stesura di opere a carattere morale-filosofico, della costruzione di strumenti per la misurazione terrestre e astronomica, dell{u2019}edizione di mappamondi, dell'introduzione di nuovi criteri calendaristici; soprattutto della costruzione di orologi {u2013} perizia grazie alla quale, innanzi tutto, furono accettati alla corte di Pechino. Dall{u2019}altro lato, egli approfondì la conoscenza dei maggiori classici cinesi e delle diverse 'religioni' diffuse nel territorio, per potersi confrontare ad armi pari su qualsiasi questione gli venisse posta. Il suo atteggiamento aperto e sensibile ai problemi della comunicazione con una cultura totalmente 'altra' può essere una delle cause per cui, almeno fino all{u2019}inizio del '900, il nome di Ricci è stato singolarmente dimenticato e la sua opera ascritta senza troppi scrupoli a Nicholas Trigault, che peraltro l'aveva resa disponibile in una propria versione latina. Il testo, oltre alla sua efficacia narrativa, alla forza dello stile che unisce in modo sorprendente la concreta secchezza del giudizio con la vastità della prospettiva culturale, e lo iscrive a pieno titolo nella tradizione di classici come Erodoto, Tacito o Tito Livio, è soprattutto il resoconto dell{u2019}impatto fra due tradizioni millenarie il cui esito è ancora tutto da interpretare e i cui insegnamenti potrebbero costituire una guida preziosa nel crescente disorientamento determinato dalle odierne figure dell'estraneità."--P.
