The time in North Cyprus is A Brief History of Cyprus Ottoman Period - The peace treaty was concluded in March with Venice agreeing both to pay a heavy war indemnity sufficient to defray all the Sultan's expenses incurred in the conflict, and also to renounce all Venetian claims to Cyprus. The takeover by the Ottoman Empire was largely welcomed by the local population, who had to some extent collaborated with the invaders and who anticipated changes for the better. To begin with, their hopes were justified. It must be remembered that the Venetians were foreign feudal landlords in Cyprus, and the first step of the Ottoman governors was to abolish the feudal system, giving the freehold of the land to the peasant families who had worked it.
The Epic Journey of Hasekura Tsunenaga: Hasekura Tsunenaga - The Voyage of Hasekura Tsunenaga was remarkable in its scope and vision standing in hard contrast to the policies of the Tokugawa in their attempts to control the political climate, foreign trade and impact of the outside world on Japan in the early By 1571 to what extent had Century.
This journey wrote a remarkable chapter in Japanese History. This voyage of a delegation of men was begun in at the time Jamestown the first English Colony in America was just seven years old and struggling to establish a foothold in Virginia.
Hasekura's mission traveled from Japan to Europe crossing both the Pacific and Atlanitc and returned again to Japan arriving back in Japan inthe same year that Plymouth Colony was established by a group of Pilgrims coming to America from England by the way of Holland.
This journey was the highwater mark of the use of ships for the Japanese in the 17th century. The Voyage of Hasekura Tsunenaga and his emissaries to Rome crossed two oceans and Mexico between Alcopulco and Veracruz becoming the first transoceanic voyage made in a galleon built entirely by Japanese Shipwrights Hasekura Tsunenaga was a retainer of Date Masamune the founder and Daiymo of Sendai Japan.
He led a political delegation to Mexico and Europe - 20 and was the first Japanese political envoy to visit the American continent. In the early 17th century Japanese merchants were making efforts to trade with the west on their own.
In July of an emissary under Sebastion Viscaino brought back from Mexico a group of Japanese merchants who By 1571 to what extent had traveled there with Rodrigo Vivero Y Velasco to establish trading relations with Mexico in the previous year. This effort to establish trading ties with Mexico inspired Date Masamune to send his own delegation to seek trade with Mexico and Southern Europe.
Date Masamune appointed Hasekura Tsunenaga, a veteran of Toyotomi Hideyoshi's invasions of Korea 1n andas his personal representative to lead this delegation. Date Masamune the founder and Diaymo of Sendai Japan Born - Died At the onset of Hasekura's mission it seems obvious that Date Masamune was functioning with a different set of goals and aspirations from those of the Tokugawa.
Date was prepared to embrace Christian missionaries and trade with the west where the Tokugawa was motivated by gaining control of the foreign trade to the exclusion of foreign interests in Japan.
In addition Date undertook the building of seaworthy ships that could handle the transoceanic voyages, an undertaking that Tokugawa Ieyasu had attempted with limited success with the English mariner William Adams. For this purpose, approximately 4, workers led by Vizcaino from New Hispania and ship-building carpenters delegated from the Tokugawa government built a ton class galleon in just six months.
This was the largest of ships of this kind built by the Japanese. The largest ship built under the supervison of William Adams, had been tons. In October Hasekura, with a delegation of Japanese, set out for Acapulco in the galleon built by Japanese shipwrights under Spanish supervision.
Its very name indicates the interest Date Masamune had in Christianity at the time. Send us as many padres as possible. While in Spain he was baptized a Christian. Hasekura'a delegation stayed in Spain for eight months before traveling on to Italy.
Had Ieyasu's policies toward the Catholic influence in Japan been different the ground work for the future would have been firmly in Masumune's court, however the doors were being shut to further missionary influences in Japan even as Hasekura's delegation were being shown the courts of Spain and Italy.
Pope Paul V By Caravaggio Hasekura arrived in Rome in the same year Galileo Galilei first went before the Roman Inquisition to present his findings against geocentricism and it was the same Pope Paul V who granted Hasekura his Roman Citizenship who repressed the teachings of Copernicus and Galileo Galilei in the following year labeling them as heretical.
During the course of Hasekura's mission, back in Japan in February ofTokugawa Hidetada had issued another edict expelling Christian priests from Japan and this resulted in a hardening of the Spanish attitude toward trade with Japan. Hasekura had met his objectives and accomplished his mission however because of the repression of Christian Missionaries was becoming the political agenda of the Tokogawa, Hasekura failed to secure open trade agreements with the west for Date Masamune.
Thirty of Hasekura's delegates remained in Spain knowing that by returning to Japan they would be persecuted as Christians.
The Japanese mission was the topic of much discussion within the Jesuits circle in Rome and the motives for sending this mission to Rome was hotly debated in view of what the church understood the current policies of the Tokugawa to be.
The politcal climate in Japan and the recent restrictions made by the Tokugawa against Christian missionaries was well known and success of the mission was compromised by the differences between the statements made by Date Masumune and the hard line taken by the Tokugawa against foreign missionaries.
It was clear that although Masumune had sent his trade delegation to Rome that back in Japan Date ruled at the discretion and favor of the Tokugawa and that it was the policies of the Tokugawa that the Church had to be most concerned with.
Hasekura Tsunenaga and his remaining delegates made the return trip home to Japan making a stop over in the Philippines. The delegation remained in the Philippines, another important Japanese trading colony, and after two years in the Philippines Hasekura returned to Japan in September Despite the fact that this mission had been received favorably, and there was great European interest in Japan, Date Masamune was forced to abandoned his efforts at diplomacy and trade with the west after the political agenda of the Tokugawa Shogunate banned Christianity in Japan and began to severely limit and control Japan's contact with the rest of the world.
Date Masamune's focus would shift from foreign diplomacy to saving his own political career in Japan where he would have to again prove his loyalty to the Tokogawa despite the evidence of his pro western leanings. Hasekura's portrait done during his mission in Rome in by Claude Deruet The differences between the outlooks of the two leaders can noted in the letters of Tokugawa Ieyasu and Date Masamune.
In Ieyasu's letter to Pope Paul V he stated "I don't mind if you take advantage of coming to Japan to make a profit but don't spread Christianity. The Tokugawa judged to a large degree the extent of this loyalty on how Date dealt with the known Christian subjects within his domain.
After Ieaysu's death the task would fall to Date Masumune to finance the building his mortuary temple. This undertaking would drain his financial coffers and allow the Shogunate to keep his political allegiance to the Tokugawa under constant scrutiny.‘By , Elizabeth I had solved most of the internal and external problems that had faced her at the start of her reign.’ Assess the validity of this view.
