The History of the Catholic Church in China

Last edited 20th August 2012

The situation of the Catholic Church in China is quite complicated. The communist regime wants to control religious practice of the Church, which includes appointing the bishops of its choice, without the consent of the Pope. So really the Church is divided in two. One that's described as the so called patriotic church and the other is the underground Church that remains loyal to the Pope.
