Open/Close Menu Alain Daniélou official site

Here is Alain Daniélou, author of Hindu Polytheism, brother of Père Jean Daniélou, and son of Madame Daniélou, who nearly founded an order and was quite possibly a saint. Only by looking very closely at this curiously “asiatized” face does one begin to notice a family resemblance. He writes about Hindu religion in a scholarly and highly objective way, without the slightest trace of fervor. A family is a wondrous thing ! Years ago I wrote The Frontenac Mystery . Who will write the mystery of the Daniélous?
