Description This work compares depictions of God in two Japanese anti-Christian texts published in 17th century. Anti-Christian literature was a negative reaction to spreading Christianity published after violent persecution of Christians. A concept of God and his creation was crucial for learning Christian doctrine in Japanese context, therefore anti-Christian literature focused on this concept, attempting to prove that Christianity was a false and evil doctrine. Although Ha Daiusu and Kirishitan Monogatari are quite similar in criticising, they were published in different phases of anti-Christian texts production and authors chose their own writing strategy. Comparison of Japanese critique of important Christian concepts reveals a typical negative response to foreign religious ideas in the ideological battle between European countries and Japan.
