Paul Xu Guangqi (1562 -1633) from rural Shanghai rose to the office of Grand Secretary of the Ming Dynasty Emperor and is known as the forerunner of modern science in China.
His friendship and collaboration with European Jesuit missionaries, especially the renowned Matteo Ricci, is the first instance of real cultural dialogue between China and the West.
Together with Ricci, Paul Xu introduced western mathematics, astronomy, and scientific method into Chinese scholarship.
By developing new crops to combat famine, Xu triggered China’s “green revolution”.
This 4-part docudrama shows China at the start of its cultural relations with the West and provides us with a wealth of material for reflection on globalization today.
Part 1 Paul and Matteo Ricci
