The name of Émile-G. Léonard is internationally famous in the area of studies related to Protestantism. In Brazil, his research on the Protestant movement is the most influential among scholars who have devoted themselves to the topic, both historians and sociologists. This article offers an objective bio-bibliographical presentation of this historian who lived for less than three years in Brazil, but wrote works still unmatched in terms of their analysis of the Brazilian Evangelical church. The article also comments on the recognition he attained in his lifetime.
