            Abstract

            Este artículo examina las interpretaciones de los misioneros católicos romanos sobre la religiosidad japonesa a finales del siglo XVI. El análisis muestra que muchos misioneros europeos estaban estéticamente atraídos por el arte budista y por la devoción a Buda del pueblo japonés, a pesar de que la Iglesia Católica Romana consideraba tal devoción como una forma de idolatría. El artículo también pretende ofrecer desde un estudio de caso histórico cómo el acto de comparación ayudó a los misioneros europeos a entender mejor la religión japonesa, y cómo la apreciación de la religiosidad japonesa influyó y transformó su contacto con los no cristianos.

            Palabras clave: Misiones cristianas en Japón, Diálogo interreligioso, Iglesia Católica Romana, Encuentro intercultural, Siglo XVI.

O artigo também pretende mostrar a partir de um estudo de caso histórico como o ato de comparação ajudou os missionários europeus a entender melhor as religiões japonesas e como sua valorização da religiosidade japonesa influenciou e transformou o seu contato com os não-cristãos.

            This article examines Roman Catholic missionaries' interpretations of Japanese religiosity in the late sixteenth century. The analysis shows that many European missionaries were aesthetically attracted to Japanese Buddhist art and respected Japanese people's devotion to Buddha, despite the fact that the Roman Catholic Church considered such devotion a form of idolatry. The article also aims to offer a historical case study on how the act of comparison helped European missionaries to better understand Japanese religions, and how their appreciation of Japanese religiosity influenced and transformed their approaches to non-Christians.

            Keywords: Christian missions in Japan, Interreligious dialogue, Roman Catholic Church, Intercultural encounter, Sixteenth century.
