THE CHRISTIAN REVOLT

"Amakusa Tokisada Shiro"

aka: THE REVOLT - Factual story that takes place around 1637 concerning the historical battle known as the "Shimabara Rebellion", led by seventeen year old Amakusa Tokisada Shiro. With their cruel daimyo raising taxes to impossible levels the local peasants, many of whom had converted to Christianity, rose in defiance. This led the Tokugawa Shogunate to stamp out the religion and lay down a stark warning to anyone else who dared raise up against them under the guidance of Jesus Christ. While defending Hara Castle Amakusa and approximately 37,000 of his followers fell and it would take another two hundred years before the religion would be safely acknowledged.
