The epilogue gives a brief narration of the history of the Catholic Mission in China after the death of Ricci to the expulsion of all foreign clerics in 1950. It analyzes the growing fame of Ricci, thanks to the effort of the Belgian Jesuit Nicholas Trigault, who translated and published Ricci's memoirs in Europe. And it analyzes the many scholarly and celebratory endeavours through the centuries. It concludes with a reflection of Ricci today in the cultural relations between China and the West.
