GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
English term or phrase:
su radio de acción / su circulación estaba limitada a Cantón
When in 1715 the Pope condemned Chinese rites as idolatrous the Emperor retorted two years later by forbidding the teaching of Christianity. Foreigners would be allowed to enter or reside in China only with special permission. No new settlements were founded and foreign traders were confined to Canton.
La duda es si a los comerciantes se les encerraba en Cantón (ciudad y tb provincia de China) o si simplemente su presencia se admitía únicamente en este lugar. Qué pensáis.
