Make Straight the Paths

First, the soil had to be prepared, minds had to open to this discovery.
In the 30’s a group of people had gathered (the 'Polars') oriented to the renewal of Catharism and the quest for the Holy Grail. Among them were colorful people: an occultist; inspired writers such as Maurice Magre; intellectuals such as Déodat Roché who was also looking for the secret of the Cathars; Countess Pujol-Murat, descendant of the famous Esclarmonde de Foix; the poet and philosopher René Nelli, a friend of André Breton - for whom 'Monségur was still aflame' (still consumed by the spirit of
intolerance); and, of course, Antonin Gadal.

Catharism was for some, not only a great moment in the philosophical thought of the Middle Ages, but it opened new perspectives about man’s knowledge, about the evolution of his consciousness and about the spirituality of Europe.

A circle of sympathisers, being of the same mind, having the same purpose, had thus been formed and everyone worked for an unveiling, a revival of this ancient culture of Occitania.
