Peter Zhang Bairen (
February 14, 1915- October 12, 2005) was the unofficial Bishopof Hanyang, China.
Chinese authorities did not officially recognize Bishop Peter Zhang; however, he was officially consecrated as a
monsignorwithin the Roman Catholic Churchin 1986, by Liu Hede, the unofficial Bishop of Hankou.
Monsignor Zhang spent twenty-four years in prison and labor camps following his continued loyalty to the Pope (1955-1979). In an unusual concession, local authorities permitted Zhang's funeral services to be open to the public.
The funeral took place in October and was attended by both official and unofficial clergy members.
