Through his research into hidden or lost meanings, Jean Hani has revealed and restored to our attention the most initiatic dimensions of the Christian religion. Jean Borella, author of The Secret of the Christian Way, and The Crisis of Religious Symbolism (forthcoming from Angelico Press)
Jean Hani (1917 2012), former professor emeritus at the University of Amiens, was the founder of the Centre de Recherche sur l Antiquite Classique and a frequent contributor to the journal Connaissance des Religions. After writing his PhD thesis on the influence of Egyptian thought upon Plutarch, he produced annotated translations of the latter s writings for the well-known Collection Bude. Later he became known for his mastery of traditional hermeneutics and exegesis, and his broad knowledge in the field of comparative religion. Hani s writing is sensitive to the predicament of those moderns who seek a firm foundation in traditional Christian values, while striving also to integrate into that foundation whatever of value can be salvaged from the contemporary world. His findings were presented in four important works now available from Angelico Press in translation: the present volume, along with Divine Craftsmanship (Preliminaries to a Spirituality of Work), The Divine Liturgy (Insights into its Mystery), and The Black Virgin (A Marian Mystery)."
