John Sung 宋尚節 (1901-1944) was a prominent Chinese Christian evangelist whose enduring influence is still recognized through East Asia.  The correspondence, writings, and extensive diaries of Sung recently acquired by the Yale Divinity Library shed new light on his life and work, as well as the historical development of Christianity in Republican China. This workshop will give a detailed overview of John Sung papers and showcase their high research value. It will also introduce you to other Chinese Christianity sources from the Republican period at the Yale library collections.
