Chapter 5 evaluates Errors from a contemporary perspective. It begins by outlining the theological messages of Errors, laying out the charges of erroneous beliefs, idolatry, and superstitions against Confucianism, Buddhism, and Daoism. It traces the influence of Errors on later Vietnamese Catholic texts of the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries—Treatise of the True Religion and Conference of the Four Religions—and appraises its legacy for the understanding of the nature of Vietnamese religions. The theological message of the texts is presented and evaluated for their implications regarding the Christian encounter with the traditional religions of Vietnam in the past and at the present time.

Keywords:   Christian relations, encountering religious others, erroneous belief, idolatry, superstition, theology of religions
