AbstractA corpus of performative texts, mostly representations of biblical stories, was published by the Chinese Catholic presses in the early 20th century. The biblical tales were creatively dramatized in a variety of traditional Chinese operas, folk performing arts, and modern vernacular plays, for the purposes of entertainment and disseminating Catholic thoughts and values in Republican China. Taking several biblical plays as case studies, this paper focuses on the anachronistic scenes in the scripts and the ways in which the playwrights integrated the biblical narratives with the contemporary religious context. I demonstrate that this approach of biblical interpretation sought to guide the religious practices of the
Catholic community.
