Dr. Hommes was born in Japan and lived there for the majority of his childhood. He has a history of extensive scholarship on various periods of Japanese history. Mr. Hommes in his presentation entitled “Samurai and the Unification of Japan in the 16th-17th Century: A Glimpse of 16th-17th Century Japan through the Hosokawa Daimyo” will introduce us to one of the most engaging periods of Japanese history through a presentation focused on the family of history’s best known samurai, Musashi Miyamoto. His presentation will be centered on this dynamic period of war and unification in which the various daimyo and their samurai retainers were key historical figures. One daimyo (military lord) family, the Hosokawa, reveal a story involving fascinating individuals, changing domains and shifting allegiances. In addition, this prominent family shows the impact of Christianity in Japan at the time, as well as the legacy of such daimyo as patrons of the arts and repositories of samurai values. Please join us at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 11th at the South Park Library at 2575 Brownsville Road. For further information please call the South Park Library at 412-833-5585.
