For many Europeans, the reception of Jesus by a polytheistic religion is a difficult thing to understand. One of these religions, Hinduism, looks at Christ in a particular way. From the end of the 18th century, the Christian message became an intense concern of many Hindu teachers who would adopt many Christian perceptions without a concrete conversion to Christianity. The first and most important personality among them was Ram Mohan Roy, the spiritual father of modern India. First of all, the present paper aims to bring to light some aspects of the religious evolution of the great Bengalian intellectual, such as his evolution within Unitarianism. Secondly, the research will focus on the reception of Jesus in his work, trying to systematize the main directions of the thought of the first Hindu author who dedicated a work to the second person of the Holy Trinity.
