문화재 취재내용 :
The Jeondong Catholic Church – Jeondong Cathedral was built 1908-1914 by French Father Xavier Baudonet on the site of the first Korean martyrs in 1781, and the martyrdom of Bishop Yu Hang-gom in 1801. This Romanesque building has been designated Korea National Treasure No. 288.
This church (Former cathedral) was built where Catholics had been martyred during the Joseon dynasty. Many Cathoics were executed at this place including the first martyrs. Yun Ji-chung (Paul) and Kwun Saung-yon (James) in 1791 and Yuhang-geom (Augustine) and Yun Ji-heon (Francis) in 1801. To revere their memory. the construction began in 1908 by a French Father Baudounet and it was completed in 1914. This magnificent Romanesque structure along with neighboring Pungnammun and Gyonggijeon has become the symbol of harmony of traditional Korean culture and western culture.
The history of Christianity in Korea can be measured in terms of sacrifice and martyrdom, from the early persecution of Roman Catholic Christians who defied the state established Confucian rites, to the brutal treatment and slaughter of Christians, along with Buddhists and Confucianists, by the Japanese during the years of harsh occupation in the twentieth century. For more than two centuries the Christian faith has woven itself as a strong strand into the Korean culture.
When the French missionary Xavier Baudonet undertook the building of this Cathedral in 1908, it was conceived of as a memorial to those who had been martyred for their faith at this very spot.
