Edmond Paris (25 January 1894 – 1970) was a French author of works on history, particularly the modern history of the Catholic church.
He was born in Paris to a Roman Catholic family of scholars. Having come from a religious background, he was very much interested in philosophical, religious, and social matters right from his childhood.
After he left Sorbonne where he was a student, he completed his studies in various parts of the world, such as Rome, Geneva, Salamanca, and Montreal. Having travelled widely and being a devout believer to be in close contact with truth and reality, he was thus able to compare what he learned with what he saw physically.
His work and life brought him into troubles. In the "Edmond Paris' The Secret History of the Jesuits" Introduction, A. Rivera wrote,
According to the author Philip J. Cohen, Paris was "the author of several rabidly anti-Catholic works." Cohen also observes that Paris is described on the jacket of Genocide in Satellite Croatia, 1941–1945 (1961) as "a French historian from a Catholic family".
L. E. Lee, writing about Genocide in Satellite Croatia, described the work as a frightening documentation of the Ustaše.
The journalist Richard West noted that Paris was one of a group of "anti-Catholic polemicists" who used events in the Independent State of Croatia to attack the Catholic Church as a whole. West observes that Genocide in Satellite Croatia, 1941–1945 was first published in French, and later in English. It was subsequently reprinted by a Protestant publisher in the United States as Convert or Die..., with a "blood-red cover showing a man kneeling at gunpoint in front of a priest". Despite this horrific imagery, West opines that Paris' book is based on careful research, much of it from Magnum Crimen. West states that Paris relied heavily on the testimony of Serbs who fled Yugoslavia after the war, whose testimony "bears out what we know of the Ustaše massacres from German, Italian and Yugoslav government sources".
