John Hungerford Pollen (1858-1925) was an English Jesuit, known as a historian of the Protestant Reformation. He was one of the group of Jesuit historians restoring the reputation of Robert Persons. He was influential in the history of the term Counter-Reformation, accepting for the Catholic side the appellation for the period of Catholic reform centred on the Council of Trent, but at the same time offering an interpretation that made it less reactive, in relation to the Protestant Reformation. These ideas were put forth in the 1908 Catholic Encyclopedia article he wrote on the subject.
He was a correspondent of Georg Cantor, from 1896 and an active member of the Catholic Record Society (founded 1904). John Hungerford Pollen (senior) was his father.
