The Sophisians, Napoleon’s Sorcerers w/ Dr. Darius Spieth

A mysterious group of soldiers, theatre artists, writers, and mystics tried to bring the magic and mystery of ancient Egypt into 19th Century France through the Sacred Order of the Sophisians. A long forgotten secret society with some Gnostic qualities, the Sophisians are a fascinating group because of their beliefs, rituals, art, and entanglements with Napoleon and politics. An extremely obscure group we hope you enjoy discovering them with scholar Dr. Darius Spieth who’s the authour of “Napoleon’s Sorcerers: The Sophisians.”
