Europe-China. Intercultural Encounters (16th-18th Centuries)


The thousands of years of intercultural relations between China and European cultures until the late 15th century were episodic, tangential and far more indirect than direct. It was in the 16th century (Melaka/1509) that continuous and direct intercultural relations started to develop. Between the early 16th and late 18th centuries, the intercultural relations of some European cultures with China grew into a regular process of the exchange of information and knowledge, goods and sensorial paths. A process with implications on a world scale that overflowed from Europe and East Asia to West Africa and the America of both the Atlantic and Pacific.
