Though a minority religion in Vietnam, Christianity has been a significant presence in the country since its arrival in the sixteenth-century. Now, Anh Q. Tran brings to light, for the first time translated into English, the 1752 manuscript Tam Giao Chu Vong (The Errors of the ThreeReligions). Structured as a dialogue between a Christian priest and a Confucian, this anonymously authored manuscript paints a rich picture of the three traditional Vietnamese religions: Confucianism, Buddhism, and Daoism. The work explains and evaluates many religious customs and rituals ofeighteenth-century Vietnam - many of which are still in practice today. In addition, it contains a trove of information on the challenges and struggles that Vietnamese Christian converts had to face in following the new faith.Besides its enormous historical value for studies in Vietnamese religion, language, and culture, Gods, Heroes, and Ancestors raises contemporary and highly complex issues concerning the encounter between Christianity and other religions: Christian missions, religious pluralism, and interreligiousdialogue.
