Jules Romains


French author of a series of some 27 novels, "Men of Good Will," 1932-48. In 1903 Romains had a mystical experience of universalism, unity of all things which he expressed in a book of poems "La Vie Unanime," 1908. He originated a study of the phenomena of "Eyeless Sight." When his book was translated and published in London, 1924, he was initially ridiculed before gaining a following.

Romains died 8/14/1972, Paris, France.

Source Notes

B.C. in hand from Steinbrecher, interpreted as 12 Noon.

Birth certificate also in Didier Geslain archive, 'Ecrivains' pdf file, p. 252, and 'R' pdf file, p. 98. Geslain interprets the time as 13:00. Sy Scholfield checked the document and while it is unclear whether the stroke before "heure du midi" is a 1 (meaning '1pm') or a slant line (meaning blank and therefore 'midday') or a small "l" (thus "l'heure du midi" meaning hour of noon), he thinks the latter and agrees with Steinbrecher.
