CHURCHES IN CHINA: Qingdao, Tianjin, Harbin

While Christianity involves a fraction of China's population in comparison to Buddhism, Taoism, or Islam, there is a historic and architecturally exquisite presence of churches in some areas of China, particularly among port cities, which is the case for all three cities in this photographic display. The historic Protestant and Catholic churches in Qingdao remain in active use for worship, as well as the Xikai Catholic Church in Tianjin. The Notre Dame des Victoires has been rebuilt numerous times over the centuries after destruction from fire or earthquake, but is not actively used for worship at this time. In Harbin, the striking Russian-styled St. Sophia's Cathedral is today a museum, home of a photographic exhibit of Harbin history as well as an enormous audio-visual model of the city of Harbin. A collection of postcards of churches of Harbin from past and present rounds out this exhibition.

You may view by allowing the slide show to play on its own (each slide lasts 5 seconds), or you may pause the slide show and view slide by slide by clicking forward or back on your keyboard arrows. Click to begin!
