Henry Maurice Goguel (20 March 1880 – 31 March 1955) was Dean of the Protestant Faculty of Theology in Paris, director of studies at the École pratique des hautes études, and professor at the Sorbonne. He published a substantial body of work of historical research on early Christianity.[1] His Jesus the Nazarene: myth or history? (translation by Frederick Stephens, 1926) was considered one of the most important rebuttals of the myth-theory of Christian origins.
