The Memoirs of Jin Luxian

William Hanbury-Tenison


Venue: Glo London

Friday, June 28th

12:00 p.m.


Fine Art Agent and amateur translator William Hanbury-Tenison discusses his new work The Memoirs of Jin Luxian, Volume 1: Learning and Relearning 1916-82.  Aloysius Jin Luxian, who died in April, was the officially-appointed and Vatican-recognized Roman Catholic Bishop of Shanghai and one of China’s leading religious figures of the last 30 years.
Hanbury-Tenison will set the context of Jin’s life within the history of the Roman Catholic Church in China and then use readings to illustrate key moments in Jin’s life, such as his arrest in 1955 and 27-year incarceration. Jin’s death in April left the Shanghai church in crisis.
