Seite 19 - So long as the sun shall warm the earth, let no Christian be so bold as to come to Japan ; and let all know, that the King of Spain himself, or the Christians' God, or the great God of all, if he violate this command, shall pay for it with his head.
Seite 13 - The Sacred Throne was established at the time when the heavens and the earth became separated. The Emperor is Heaven descended, divine and sacred ; He is preeminent above all His subjects. He must be reverenced and is inviolable. He has indeed to pay due respect to the law, but the law has no power to hold him accountable to it. Not only shall there be no irreverence for the Emperor's person, but also He shall not be made a topic of derogatory comment nor one of discussion.
Seite 86 - I do not regret the tendency to free thought and atheism which is almost universal in Japan, because I do not regard it as a source of danger to the community.
Seite 28 - Japanese subjects shall, within limits not prejudicial to peace and order, and not antagonistic to their duties as subjects, enjoy freedom of religious belief.
Seite 53 - We consider that the Founder of Our Empire and the ancestors of Our Imperial House placed the foundation of the country on a grand and permanent hasis, and established their authority on the principles of profound humanity and benevolence.

Seite 30 - They are to be found among the members in the National Diet, the judges in the courts, the professors in the universities, the editors of leading secular papers, and the officers of the army and navy.

Seite 79 - War, is an interesting example: "For it is as plain as that the sun shines at midday, that the Calvinistic doctrine is full of frightful blasphemy, horrible error and mischief, and is diametrically opposed to God's holy revealed word. To take up arms for the Calvinists is nothing else than to serve under the originator of Calvinism — the Devil. We ought, indeed, to give our lives for our brethren; but the Calvinists are not our brethren in Christ; to support them would be to offer ourselves and...
Seite 48 - Though she still labours under certain disabilities, a woman can now become a head of a family, and exercise authority as such ; she can inherit and own property and manage it herself; she can exercise parental authority ; if single, or a widow, she can adopt ; she is one of the parties to adoption...
Seite 53 - The Founder of Our Empire and the Ancestors of Our Imperial House placed the foundations of the country on a grand and everlasting basis, and established their authority on the principles of profound humanity and benevolence. " That our subjects have throughout the ages deserved well of the state by their loyalty and piety, and by their harmonious co-operation, is in accordance with the essential character of our country; and on these very same principles our education has been founded. "You, our...
Seite 29 - There are Christian churches in every large city and in almost every town in Japan; and they all have complete freedom to teach and worship in accordance with their own convictions. These churches send out men to extend the influence of Christianity from one end of the country to the other as freely as such a thing might be done in the United States, and without attracting much if any more attention.
