The Taipei Ricci Institute was founded in 1966 to undertake research into Chinese culture, both
ancient and modern. It represents the continuation of an effort which started with Matteo Ricci
and his successors. They were the first to introduce sinological studies to the West. The Institute
wishes to continue this dialogue between East and West.

The Taipei Ricci Institute has been involved in research in the fields of lexicography, language,
Shang oracular inscriptions, ancient and modern philosophy, Buddhism, Taoism and popular
religions, history and literature. The Taipei Institute works in collaboration with the Ricci Institutes
of Paris and San Francisco. The Paris Institute concentrates on the philosophical foundations of
Chinese medicine whilst the San Francisco Institute specializes in the history of Sino-Western
intercultural exchanges.

Since 1996 the Ricci Institute has changed to meet today's needs. It continues its works of
exchange between Christianity and China but also concentrates on opening up to dialogue
between Taiwan and mainland China. New research projects have started in the fields of peace,
territorial identity and spirituality.
