JapSin I, 88
Zhujiao yaozhi 主教要旨.
By Li Leisi 李類思 (Lodovico Buglio).
One juan. Chinese bamboo paper in one volume. No date or place of publication.

The cover bears the title together with an inscription in French: “Deux opuscules sur les dogmes fondamentaux, (rare). Traité complet en 2 volumes du mahométan Yang Koang sien, le grand ennemi du P. Schall, attaque de méthodes astron. europ. Réfutation de ce traité, par le P. L. Buglio. Deux exemplaires. 2 vol. chacun: Ad Jap Sin I, 88–92. Notae Pris Wieger.” [The first sentence (Deux . . . ) refers to Jap-Sin I, 88+88a, the second to Jap-Sin I, 89, 1–2 (Budeyi 不得已) and the last sentence (Réfutation . . . ) refers to Jap-Sin I, 90+90a+91+92 (Budeyi bian 不得已辨)].
The end of the introduction (one folio) bears the date, Kangxi wushen 戊申 (1668), which indicates that the book was published that year. After the table of contents (one folio) follows the main text (twenty-six folios). Each half folio contains nine columns and each column has twenty characters. The first folio gives the title and the author of the book together with the two censors: An Wensi 安文思 (Gabriel de Magalhães, 1610–1677) and Nan Huairen 南懷仁 (Ferdinand Verbiest, 1623–1688). The upper middle of each folio bears the title with number of the folio marked below.
The term zhujiao is an abbreviation of Tianzhujiao (Catholicism). This book and the Shengjiao jianyao (Jap-Sin I, 87) both deal with the Catholic teaching and they are essentially the same. The last section of the book deals with the administration of the Catholic Church. It points out that the Church gives great peace of mind to the people, which is of great importance for governing. Finally, the author has a number of unfavorable remarks on the Buddhist and Daoist sects.
