Santo Domingo Church Museum

サントドミンゴ教会跡資料館

Santo Domingo Church Museum The outline of a former church is evident in remains from the early Edo

OVERVIEW

In 1609, Fr. Francisco Morales, a Dominican priest, suffered persecution and watched as his church in Kyodomari was taken down. But the dismantled materials were brought to Nagasaki and used to build another church on land provided by Murayama Toan, a local magistrate who professed Christianity.
However, the newly built church was also destroyed soon afterward in obedience to the Anti-Christian Edicts. The site, where an elementary school is now located, became the residence of the deputy administrator of the shogunate. Recently, during the demolition and reconstruction of the old building, relics of the church and residence were discovered. A museum was opened on the site, and the unearthed objects are now on display as important artifacts related to the early Edo period.
