abstract
The European Reformation was a very dividing period of Europe’s history. Political divisions and wars were just some of the results to appear in the west. However, the Reformation period was not localized only to Europe. During the 16th Century Japan was going through its own crisis of which was nothing less than the constantly evolving change of leadership. It was into this situation that the first Catholic missionaries arrived. The research first attempts to understand the interaction the Shogunate and local leaders had with the missionaries, and then to determine the extent to which differences evolved prior to the arrival and stay of Protestants like the Dutch. Under the era of Nobunaga Catholic missionaries arrived in Japan and were welcomed for various reasons. However, a rift occurred during the shift of leadership to Regent Hideyoshi and later Ieyasu Tokugawa. The local and regional power struggles, ideological confliction, and threat of Europe’s fleets created a tense and often violent conflict in Japan between its rulers and the foreign missionaries, all before the Protestant nations established a solid presence.
