China Toleration suppression and survival

Although the Manchu armies had taken Beijing and installed the Shunzhi Emperor ofthe Qing dynasty in the Forbidden City in 1644, it would be the early 1680s before peace was restored throughout the Chinese Empire. Especially in the south the political situation remained fluid, due to the incomplete military control of the Manchus and the existence of Ming loyalist resistance movements. The Chinese Christian communities, particularly in the provinces of Fujian and Sichuan, were seriously affected by these internal conflicts.
