Henri Daniel-Rops Recommendations
|I received a recommendation today from Thomas who writes:|
Please make sure that all the books of the great French Roman Catholic scholar are placed on your list: Thanks for the suggestion. A few of Daniel-Rops' books can already be found on Part VI of the list, and I've added his ten volume history to the reader recommendations.
Henri Daniel-Rops was the nom de plume of Henri Jules Charles Petiot. He was born in France in 1901, the grandson of peasants and the son of an artillery officer. An academic prodigy, by the age of twenty-one Petiot had earned the equivalent of three Master's degrees and became an Associate Professor of History at Neuilly a year later. He wrote more than seventy books and received a large number of distinctions and honours. In 1955 he became the youngest ever member of the Academie Française (eventually winning the Grand Prix) and went on to receive the Legion of Honour. Henri Jules Charles Petiot died in 1965.
His 10-volume Church history is unsurpassable; his numerous sacred history books are the crème de la crème…. He is similar to Giuseppe Ricciotti…
