It is thought that there could be as many as 300,000 Vietnamese Catholic Martyrs, killed through a series of purges and persecutions dating back as far as the 17th Century. In the late 18th Century and early 19th Century, the church in Vietnam was devastated during the Tay Son rebellion and under the Nguyen Dynasty (1802 – 1945).
