Panikkar, Raimundo

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).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
