Panikkar, Raimundo (1918– ). Christian promotor of Hindu–Christian dialogue. He was brought up to read the Veda as well as the Bible. In 1968 he published, on the basis of his experience of dialogue, The Unknown Christ of Hinduism. Along the lines that led to the formulation of the concept of anonymous Christians (see RAHNER), he argued that Christ is universal and that his presence and reality can be articulated in Hindu terms. This book led to the correction by M. M. Thomas that Christ has already been acknowledged in Hinduism by various people in various ways, which he proceeded to review, in The Acknowledged Christ of the Indian Renaissance. Panikkar also wrote The Trinity and the Religious Experience of Man (1973), and The Vedic Experience (1977).
