Dialogue with China through Innovation and Science

On 9 October 2023, Rothlin Ltd. jointly cooperated with Yale Center Beijing, the Macau Ricci Institute & University of St Joseph held a workshop on The Fourth Centenary of Ferdinand Verbiest: Dialogue with China through Innovation and Science. The commemoration of Verbiest’s work in China is an important milestone for mapping the role of the Jesuit mission in China in fostering dialogue through the sharing of scientific innovations, mathematics, astronomy, and technological applications related to these innovations. Verbeist’s work in China provides a promising model for cross-cultural dialogue going forward. This seminar featured perspectives from eminent scholars from China, as well as from the Verbiest Institute of the University of Leuven in Belgium.
