Péladan: Paris' Occult Artist-Philosopher - Live Lecture
Time & Location
About The Event
Joséphin Péladan (Sâr Merodack, 1858-1918) was the enfant terrible of the French occult revival -- a symbolist artist, occultist and philosopherinfluenced by Platonism and Luciferian theology. Péladan's philosophical project was a plan for the salvation of humanity - this was to be done by an inner circle of artist-initiates who bombard the masses with uplifting symbol-laden art and would ignite a collective awakening. Human creativity would thus redeem the Fall of man and angels. The occult artist, in short, holds the key to salvation - an idea that is as radical as one can imagine today.
This live lecture, with audience Q & A, is by Dr Sasha Chaitow, the acknowledge world expert on Péladan. An independent occult scholar and freelance lecturer, she has many publications to her name, including a forthcoming study of Péladan with Fulgur Press. She is also a painter with numerous solo exhibitions and an active art practice.
