Jacques Lanfry. A lion, the Church and Islam

Jacques Lanfry (1910-2000) joined the White Fathers in 1933 and is one of the missionary figures whose commitment illustrates that of the Catholic Church in favour of a dialogue with Muslims. Passionate about the Kabyle people and language, which he visited for a long time in North Africa at the end of the colonial period, and later in France, Jacques Lanfry took part in the production of a linguistic work which is still a reference today. Member of the General Council of the Society of Missionaries of Africa and architect of the “Journées Romaines” in the 1960s, he was one of the actors of the conciliar turn in the field of Islamic-Christian relations.

Published in the series “Studi arabo-islamici del PISAI” (Rome 2021). The book contains a preface by Cardinal Michael L. Fitzgerald and an afterword by Ilaria Macconi Heckner of the Fondazione per le Science Religiose Giovanni XXIII.

Rémi Caucanas is an associate researcher at the Institut de Recherches et d’Études sur le Monde Arabo-Musulman (IREMAM, Aix-en-Provence) and at the Pontifical Institute for Arabic Studies and Islamology (PISAI, Rome), and has taught at Tangaza University College (Nairobi). He was the director of the Institut Catholique de la Méditerranée (ICM, Marseille) from 2014 to 2016. He collaborated on the book L’Église et les chrétiens dans l’Algérie indépendante (Karthala, 2020) and is the author of several books on Christian-Muslim dialogue, including Étienne Renaud, la passion du dialogue (Publications Chemins de Dialogue, 2017).

Entré chez les Pères Blancs en 1933, Jacques Lanfry (1910-2000) est l’une des figures missionnaires dont l’engagement illustre celui de l’Église catholique en faveur d’un dialogue avec les musulmans. Passionné par le peuple et la langue kabyle qu’il a longuement fréquentés en Afrique du Nord à la fin de la période coloniale, et plus tard en France, Jacques Lanfry a participé à la production d’une œuvre linguistique qui fait référence encore aujourd’hui. Membre du Conseil général de la Société des Missionnaires d’Afrique et architecte des « Journées Romaines » dans les années 1960, il a été l’un des acteurs du tournant conciliaire dans le domaine des relations islamo-chrétiennes.

Publié dans la série « Studi arabo-islamici del PISAI » (Rome 2021). Le livre contient une préface du Cardinal Michael L. Fitzgerald et une postface d’Ilaria Macconi Heckner de la Fondazione per le Science Religiose Giovanni XXIII.
