Charles Guignebert (1867-1939) was a French scholar, a pupil of Joseph-Ernest Renan, and from 1919 a professor of History of Christianity at Sorbonne University. Guignebert followed a strictly rationalist approach to ancient sources, without any concession to the theses of the religious apologetics.
