On the night of 4 January 1893, Joseph-Antoine Boullan was beaten by the invisible hands of fearsome hidden forces. He wrote about his presentiments
to the author Joris-Karl Huysmans, who had just finished his book "Là-Bas", which was something like a history of satanism...
The mysterious death of Abbé Boullan was the occasion for a lively polemic between writers and occultists: Jules Bois and J.K. Huysmans on the one
hand, Stanislas de Guaita on the other. Jules Bois formally accused Guaita and his colleagues of the Rose-Croix that they had bewitched Father
Boullan. In Gil Blas of 9 January 1893 he published an article, stating he felt it to be his duty to recount the facts in this case: the strange
attacks of Boullan directed by the Rosicrucians and the prophetic visions of Mrs. Thibault.
