Occult Paris brings alive Paris' occult side during its belle epoque (1871-1914) At this time Theosophy, Rosicrucians, Martinists and Freemasons all made fin-de-sicle Paris their home, and Churton reveals them all. He shows, too, the influence these occult movements had on famous figures such as Arthur Rimbaud, Charles Baudelaire, Claude Debussy and Georges Seurat. This historical exploration shows powerfully how Parist was, at this time, a meeting place between the occult and art, literature, politics and intellectual ithought.
