~ Martyrs of China [4] ~

Diverse Incidents of Persecutions († 1820 to 1930)

 

Following the editorial style for Chinese names in the Chicago Manual of Style, the Chinese family name in this page is given first, followed by the Chinese given name. Then comes the Latin baptismal name of the martyr, followed by its Pinyin Romanization (enclosed in brackets). What follows next is the full name of the martyr in Mandarin Chinese. The italicized prefix shi is traditionally attached to the second family name of a widow or married woman. The family name to which it is affixed is the woman’s maiden name.

Note:  This cause has been transformed dramatically in the passing of time. When the cause was introduced on 10 December 1926, it was was originally entitled Gregorius Grassi, Franciscus Fogolla, Antoninus Fantosati, Theotimus Verhaegen, et 2,414 Socii. It covered the alleged martyrs in the five apostolic vicariates under the Franciscan Friars Minor [namely: Northern Shanxi (Taiyuan), Southern Shanxi (Changzhi), Southwest Hubei (Yichang), Northern Shandong (Jinan), and Southern Hunan (Hengyang)] killed in five separate years (namely: 1820, 1875, 1898, 1900, and 1904).  Because of the enormity in the number of martyrs, the Office of the General Postulator of the Franciscan Friars Minor decided to work on the cause piecemeal. In 1941, the 29 individuals killed during the Boxer Rebellion of 1900 were formed into one cause entitled Gregorius Grassi et 28 Socii; eventually, they were beatified by Pope Pius XII on 24 November 1946 [see Martyrs of China (I) (these martyrs are marked with a single †)]. The remaining alleged martyrs were reevaluated and the number was reduced so that, when the cause entered the judicial phase called “antepreparatory congress” on 14 January 1964, it was renamed Theotimus Verhaegen et 126 Socii. The cause has remained inactive since then. However, the Congregation for the Causes of Saints has informed the Hagiography Circle in January 2004 that the number of martyrs in the cause has been further curtailed. Presently, then, the official name of the cause is Theotimus Verhaegen et 19 Socii.
