About Frances Rouleau

"As a historian, Father Francis A. Rouleau, S.J. spent many years of his life collecting archival materials concerning the Chinese Rites Controversy. Presently housed at the Ricci Institute is his life-long collection of those materials containing over 50,000 folios of photo copies of original historical documents in six different European languages. Many of those documents are also available in microfilm forms.

"The Ricci Institute is assembling a team of scholars to study those documents and is planning to produce publications. For further information, please contact the Ricci Institute."

A book was written about Father Francis: "Celestial Dragon: The Life and Letters of Fr. Francis Rouleau" by Barry Martinson, Loyal University Press, 1999 (ISBN: 9579185530).

"Celestial Dragon is the name the Chinese gave to their beloved Jesuit priest, and missionary, Father Francis Rouleau, S.J. This book gives a picture of an extraordinary man as revealed through his letters, and personal devotional writings. Father Rouleau, seen through the eyes and testimony of those who loved him, was not only a great missioner; he was also a very special counselor, a beloved teacher, a noted historian and a dedicated spiritual master. He had a deep love for China and a deep affection for the Society of Jesus. Father Rouleau died in 1984."
