Christians in 16th century Japan Tuesday

promulgate [PROM-uhl-geyt, proh-MUHL-geyt]

1.to make known by open declaration; publish; proclaim formally or put into operation (a law, decree of a court, etc.).
2.to set forth or teach publicly (a creed, doctrine, etc.).


I wish I knew exactly when the ban on Christianity in Japan was promulgated so that I could get a proper start on my essay, but I guess I'll just have to research it like a normal student.

I'd have another word for missing last week, but I can't find my word list. I'm sorry!
