The court nobility is very much tied to Shinto-Buddhist institutions and as such provide much patronage to them. That being said, in a Oda-centric Japan the samurai still reign supreme and so the former up until their political integration haven’t had a significant say or influence in politics. Their influence however does severely limit the Christian population in Kyoto.What is the situation of more traditionalist Buddhist nobles? Are they trying to promote their version of buddhism in expense of Christianity in japan?
Also those who got estates in Phillipines are they try to convert natives and Christians to create more loyal foundations for their rule? After all Christianity in Phillipines is a recent thing and mostly done through force. Even if oda clan have no fixed policy other Buddhist nobles must have their own agenda. Plus religious influence and increase their fame by their patronage missionary activities allow them project power without any backlash from odas who are more or less uninterested in that.
Religious affairs in Luson I’ll cover in the Religion in Japan chapter, which is probably gonna be Chapter 76.
