Catholic Hierarchy in China since 1307


I have studied the history of the bishops of China and their dates of consecration for more than 35 years along with Dr. Manfred Kierein and Charles Bransom.

The research which was published in my book in 2012 now appears on this website. It has been supplemented by photographic material and documents which have been made available to me by various agencies, archives, and private collectors.
