To commemorate the 60th anniversary of the death of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955), the Taipei Ricci Institute and the Xu-Ricci Dialogue Institute at Fudan University present the documentary: Teilhard and China. This French Jesuit who was at the forefront in his chosen field, paleontology was based in China for 23 years (1923-1946), and wrote his two most influential books there. They included several of the writings that would later be gathered under the title The Divine Milieu, and, most importantly, The Phenomenon of Man. His writings dealing with the connections between science and faith as well as globalization and the future of humankind became immensely popular after his death.



Besides offering a narrative of Teilhard’s evolving relationship with China, this 44-minute documentary available in 3 versions (English, French and Chinese) is a meditation on his spiritual journey and its significance today for China and beyond.
