Abstract: In the late-nineteenth century China, an anti-Christian movement swiped the entire country. This thesis tries to provide a new perspective of the causes of the anti-Christian movement by studying the relationship between Belgium Franciscan missionaries and the secret society Gelaohui in Enshi in the late nineteenth century. This thesis argues that Franciscan missionaries in Enshi were quite experienced at dealing with the local society in the nineteenth century. They generally had peaceful working relationships with different groups of people in the local society such as Chinese officials, Chinese Christians and non-Christians. However, the secret society Gelaohui frequently had trouble with Franciscan missionaries. They not only confronted those missionaries indirectly, but also directly organized the anti-Christian movement that took place in Enshi and the entire Yangtze River Valley.
