Noël Péri(1865/08/22 - 1922/06/25) 

Noël Péri (22 August 1865 - 25 June 1922) was a French Catholic priest. A missionary and author, he was responsible for translating the Gospels into Japanese and published the first research journal devoted to Japanese topics. He read and wrote broadly about Japanese culture, including studies of Buddhist history and mythology, and as a result came into conflict with some members of the Catholic missionary community. A trained musician, he also taught Western music in Japan and wrote early Western works on Japanese opera and music theory, and Noh drama. (Source Accessed June 15, 2020)
