内容摘要:1937年7月日军全面侵华战争开始,当时仍坚持留在中国各地的传教士不仅亲眼目睹了日军在各地的暴行,而且也利用他们作为外籍人士的特殊地位,通过建立安全区、避难所等措施对苦难中的中国人民施以援手,因此也被百姓亲切地称为“活菩萨”。遗憾的是,目前学术界仅仅对南京、上海等少数地方战时的传教士活动做了初步研究,而忽略了其他很多地方。实际上传教士在这方面留存的资料非常丰富,值得我们去发掘利用。本文以美国各机构所藏传教士资料为例,说明这一研究的意义及其前景。

Japanese troops launched the full-scale war against China in July 1937, the missionaries remained in China not only witnessed the Japanese atrocities, also established safety area or shelters for refugees with their status foreign citizen. They were called “living Buddha” by Chinese people. It is a pity that Christian activities only in a few cities such as Nanjing and Shanghai have been researched fully while other more places need further investigation. In fact missionary materials related with this field are so rich that make this research possible. This paper analyzes the significance and prospect of this research based on the missionary resource in the libraries and archives in the United States of America.
