Esta obra de Fulcanelli es menos conocida que Las moradas filosofales, y sin embargo, quizás sea más importante.

El propio Fulcanelli dice en ella:

Edificadas por los Frimasons medievales para asegurar la transmisión de los símbolos y de la doctrina herméticos, nuestras grandes catedrales ejercieron, desde su aparición, considerables influencias sobre gran número de muestras
Paperback, 1st edition Rotativa [16], 204 pages

The first time I saw this book was on the shelves of my university friend, long long long ago. Recently, because of my research on Alchemical Putrefaction, I decided to take it up again in the original french (not easy reading for someone who is not a native speaker).

What can I say?

First that, unlike most Fulcanellians, I like more the second volume, Les Demeures Philosophales.

Second, that, no matter what one's opinion might be on the man and his works, this book is an absolute must for all l
una descripcion sorprendente en especial de notre-dame en paris, ir leyendo y observando cada detalle en vivo es un viaje al mundo del simbolismo y la geometria sagrada!!
I love books about mystery and this book you can find many details how many religions people built churches, cathedrals,mosque and many sacred places around the world.
Muy interesante, ayuda a ver la arquitectura con otros ojos.
Eso sí, no es un libro para leerse de un tirón, sino poco a poco, investigando y haciéndose preguntas.

Oh, just a little tour of some French architectural adornments.
Intenso, ma a tratti ancora incomprensibile. Purtroppo!

Fulcanelli is almost certainly a pseudonym assumed, during the early 20th century, by a French alchemist and esoteric author, whose identity is still debated. The name Fulcanelli seems to be a play on words: Vulcan the ancient Roman god of fire plus El, a Canaanite name for God and so the Sacred Fire.
