Gregorious de Cespedes was a Portuguese priest who went to Korea to do missionary work. He accompanied the forces commanded by Daimyo Konishi Yukinaga, himself a Christian, and proselytized among the Japanese soldiers. There is little evidence that he interacted directly with the Korean population, but it is believed that he did proselytize among Koreans held captive by the Japanese.
