For the greater part of his adult life, the polymath Roman Catholic theologian Xu Zongze (P. Joseph Zi, S.J., 1886–1947) edited the premier Catholic journal Shengjiao zazhi, or Revue Catholique, from the Jesuit compound in Shanghai, the effective center of the Chinese Roman Catholic world. The directions in which he guided the magazine and the theological, historical, and social articles he wrote offer important insight into the evolution of Chinese Catholicism during the 1920s and 1930s. This chapter sets Xu’s biji, or “thoughts and jottings,” against his “official” magazine essays to explore the congruence or tension between the two voices, and suggests that the theologian and archivist was able to express himself differently in different forms. The unofficial, low-brow jottings constitute a personal view, in a Chinese form, to complement the official (Western-style) theological essays of the magazine.
