Expert says China experiencing `religious fever'
A Melbourne expert on religion in China has told a conference in the US that China is in 'a state of religious fever'.
CNS News has reported on the comments of La Trobe University Religious Studies head Dr Paul Rule at a conference held earlier this month at Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.
'Christianity in China: Growing on Holy Ground' was the theme of the 18th National Catholic China Conference, sponsored by the US Catholic China Bureau and the University of San Francisco's Ricci Institute for Chinese-Western Cultural History. Dr Rule, a member of the Ricci Institute's Council of Scholars, was among some 100 scholars, priests, sisters, and educators from Asia and the West at the conference.
