Jean-Paul Roux

Jean-Paul Roux, PhD (5 January 1925 - 29 June 2009) was a French Turkologue and a specialist of Islamic culture.

He was a graduate of Institut national des langues et civilisations orientales, the École du Louvre, and the École Pratique des Hautes Études. In 1966 he was awarded a doctorate in literature in Paris. He was Director of Research at CNRS from 1957 to 1970, the Science Secretary for the Department of Oriental Languages and Civilizations from 1960 to 1966, and a teacher of Islamic art at École du Louvre. He was General Commissioner for the Islamic Arts at the Orangerie de Tuileries in 1971 and also the Grand Palais in 1977. Jean-Paul Roux's Genghis Khan and the Mongol Empire (2003) has been described as an "admirable short introduction" by historian David Morgan.[1]
