Silence is an historical novel about religious faith and the conflict between East and West. It is set in seventeenth century Japan, when Catholics are being pursued, tortured and killed in the attempt to eradicate Catholicism from Japan. Decades earlier, Portuguese Jesuits had brought their faith to Japan and spread their message to hundreds of thousands of brutalised, starving peasants, who are now maintaining their religion in secret. The priests are dead, along with thousands of their followers, tortured for refusing to deny their faith, but rumours have reached Portugal that Father Ferreira, leader of the mission, has apostacised to save his life. Two young Portuguese priests, Rodrigues and Garrpe who were students of Ferreira and cannot believe his betrayal, make their way to Japan with great difficulty in order to find Ferreira. The main protagonist is Rodrigues, whose faith is tested when the peasants who would protect him are tortured for their loyalty while God remains silent.

A thought-provoking book that addresses serious questions. Recommended. ( )

This was deep and painful book for me, and I definitely struggled to finish it. ( )

Second book by Endo in a month andI was hoping it would be better than “Samurai”. Not really. Interesting account of catholic missionaries experience of Japan, once Catholicism was banned. Repetitive at times. ( )
  simbaandjessie | Jun 22, 2022 |
A very eloquent and insightful examination of Catholicism and the necessity for Judas in the Christian mythology. However, it's a pity that, while describing the cruel and oppressive practices of the Japanese in persecuting Roman Catholics, the author fails to even hint at the equal barbaric practices perpetrated by the Roman Catholic Church on "heretics" and many others back in Europe at the same time. ( )

Like a sword of words, viscerally dissects body and soul, blood runs black and belief is crushed. Didn't enjoy. Might watch the movie but even that looks depressing. The story has good bones, not my thing right now. ( )

"This country is a swamp. . . . Whenever you plant a sapling in this swamp the roots begin to rot; the leaves grow yellow and wither."

--Cristóvão Ferreira
"They twisted God to their own way of thinking in a way we can never imagine. . . . It is like a butterfly caught in a spider's web. At first it is certainly a butterfly, but the next day only the externals, the wings and the trunk, are those of a butterfly; it has lost its true reality and has become a skeleton. In Japan our God is just like that butterfly caught in the spider's web: only the exterior form of God remains, but it has already become a skeleton."
--Cristóvão Ferreira
It was not against the Lord of Chikugo and the Japanese that he had fought. Gradually he had come to realize that it was against his own faith that he had fought.
How many of our Christians, if only they had been born in another age from this persecution, would never have been confronted with the problem of apostasy or martyrdom but would have lived blessed lives of faith until the very hour of death.
