The Figure on the Secluded Path: Huang Chien-Tsong’s Life after the Turning Point in 1925
This thesis aims to represent the attendance of social movement and religion practice from Huang Chien-Tsong’s（黃呈聰, 1886-1963）life after 1925 since we didn’t know much about it though some academic discussion had tried to figure out.
Before 1925, Huang was a son of a land owner and a promising one who had good career and won the high scale of respectability, therefore, he attended many social movements and wrote many articles about changing Taiwanese conception about political and social problems during the period of Japanese Government occupation. However, after1925, he accepted the special religion, Chinese True Jesus Church（中國真耶穌教會）, he combined his political tendency, Chinese- inclination, with this religion and took the road to determine his conviction that believing Chinese True Jesus Church was also a way to carry on turning Taiwanese into a kind of soul-puring race.
I want to discuss Huang’s published articles that he wrote no matter before or after 1925 to explore his understanding about Chinese and the particular parts of Taiwanese culture and life-style. And, it’s absolutely necessary to connect these with his personal life-practice in both social movements and
religious belief when we probe into his life after focusing on his achievements and works.
