In this video, I interview Gauthier Pierozak about the amazing work he’s done to rediscover and share the lost work of the 20th century French symbolist, Louis Charbonneau-Lassay. Charbonneau was a Catholic archaeologist who also collaborated with René Guénon, but remained dedicated to approaching symbolism through primarily a Christian lens. He was particularly interested in how all of the natural world - plants, animals, minerals etc. - participate in symbolically representing different aspects of God.

Gauthier reconstructed Charbonneau’s book, The Vulnerary of Christ, which was translated into English. He also made publicly available many of the previously lost notes of Charbonneau:
