Chinese Christian Texts Database (CCT-Database)

Chinese Christian Texts Database (CCT-Database).

Edited by Ad Dudink and Nicolas Standaert of the K.U. Leuven in Netherlands, this bibliographical database “is a research database of primary and secondary sources concerning the cultural contacts between China and Europe in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries (from 1582 to ca. 1840)… The primary sources are ca. 1050 Chinese texts documents dating from roughly the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. They include printed books, manuscripts, pamphlets and maps. There are over 4000 secondary sources, which, if applicable, are linked to the primary sources.” (CCT-Database)

Note that there is no automatic conversion between traditional and simplified Chinese characters, so search in both and pinyin is recommended. Windows Vista users may experience problems with opening internal links.
