SOLD OUT – Abbé Boullan, Paris’ Satanic Priest
27 March 2017 (Monday) @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm| £8
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.
