Abstract

Giulio Aleni, a 17-century Catholic missionary, was referred to as “Confucius from the West.” Analysis on the formation of his legend suggests that it is a product of a complex charismatic movement in which Christianity encounters sage cults. He was a unique example of the combination of priestly and sagely charismata, which we call Alenism.
