Abbé Boullan, Paris’ Satanic Priest

Lecture – Madeleine Le Despencer

This event is sold out.

Join us for a night on the life and work of the notorious heretical  priest and accused satanist, Abbé Joseph-Antoine  Boullan (1824- 1893), who came to be known as a bogeyman of the 19th century Paris magicians who misrepresented his occult Catholicism. In his lifetime, Boullan went from a rising star within the church of Rome to a defrocked priest running his own ministry of mystical Catholicism  in which women were consecrated bishops and preparations were made for a coming new age of Luciferian feminine power. He was hugely famed in his day, and served as an inspiration for artists and occultists as varied  as JK Huysmans, Michael Bertiaux, and Maria de Naglowaska. Tonight we will look at the life, work, and impact of this most fascinating figure and his spiritual partner, the mysterious Julie Thibault.

Madeleine Le Despencer is a visual artist and author  whose interests focus on French Decadents, grimoires, traditional witchcraft, and Spiritualism. She lives in London.
