Photos: Christianity on display

13 March 2015


A statue of Christ that was confiscated from Christians in the village of Urakami, Nagasaki Prefecture, during the persecution of Christians in Japan that lasted from the 1600s to the 1800s. It is now in the possession of the Tokyo National, and is on loan to the Nagasaki Museum of History and Culture, as part of an exhibition of the history of Christianity in Japan. A portrait of Pope Gregory XIII is also on display at the exhibition.
