Catholic Hierarchy in China since 1307


I have studied the history of the bishops of China and their dates of consecration for more than 20 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.

02.12.2017: today I started to update and edit some of the pages and will create new pages, e.g. for the dioceses A-Z. So I need to update also some internal links in the upcoming days. Sorry for some missing links from bishops to dioceses, hope to add them soon.
