Summary

"Silence" (dt. Schweigen) ist der wichtigste Roman des gefeierten japanischen Autors Shusaku Endo. Er verursachte nach seiner Veröffentlichung im Jahr 1966 eine große Kontroverse in Japan. Shusaku Endo, ein japanischer Katholik, erzählt die Geschichte zweier portugiesischer Missionare, die im siebzehnten Jahrhundert in Japan versuchen, die dortige unterdrückte christliche Bewegung zu unterstützen.

1638 bricht Pater Sebastião Rodrigues nach Japan auf, um der Wahrheit hinter den undenkbaren Gerüchten, dass sein berühmter Lehrer Ferreira seinem Glauben abgeschworen habe, nachzugehen. Nach seiner Ankunft erlebt er die brutale und unmenschliche Verfolgung der Christen. Angesichts der Ereignisse in einer Gesellschaft, die keine Toleranz kennt und in der der Tod an der Tagesordung ist, stellt der Autor die immerwährende Frage: Wie kann Gott zu all dem schweigen?
