Adolf Daens

Adolf Daens (18 December 1839 – 14 June 1907) was a Flemish priest from Aalst.Daens was a Jesuit from 1859 to 1871, but is especially known for his socio-political involvement after he joined the diocesan clergy.

He created the Daensist movement from which the Christene Volkspartij party was created in 1893, after being inspired by Leo XIII's encyclical Rerum novarum.

The Christene Volkspartij forced the radicalisation and democratisation of the Catholic party.
