The coming of the barbarians (1540-1650)
- Main contributor
In 1540, Portuguese navigators and Jesuit priests landed in a Japan of shoguns and samurai, where the arts of warfare had been refined to hitherto unknown heights of cruelty. Although Westernisms quickly became the rage in Japan, the Japanese soon recognized the long arm of colonialism. Christian priests and converts were persecuted and martyred and, in 1650, Japan shut tight its doors to the outside. Originally produced in 1985 for the French series: Japon, le rêve et l'histoire. English version produced in 1989.
