Color photo of Emmanuel d'Alzon, ten years oldIn 2010 the bicentennial of the death of Fr. Emmanuel d'Alzon, the founder of the Assumptionists, two Assumptionists, Fathers Jean-Paul Périer-Muzet, the general archivist at the time, and Jean-Daniel Gullung, the general treasurer, collaborated in putting together a large collection of the photos and images that exist of him.

The text has yet to be translated, but the photos and images need little translation!!! They can all be found at http://www.assomption.org/fr/mediatheque/cahiers-du-bicentenaire-1/le-pere-d-alzon-en-images.

We are reproducing some of them here to give our readers a taste of the collection. Good viewing!
