This was the journal of the Ordre Martiniste and of the Maçonnique du Rite Ancien et Primitif de Memphis-Misraim. It functioned as a pool for the O.T.O., Ordo Templi Orientis) and other initiatory groups headed By Jean (Joanny) Bricaud (1881-1934). He assumed control of the Ordre Martiniste and of the Eglise Gnostique Universelle after the death of Teder (Charles Detre) in 1918, and was confirmed in his gnostic role by Theodor Reuss in 1919. The journal was to be a successor of Reveil Gnostique and became the organ of Bricaud's Societe Occultiste Internationale (of which he was president). It published as a supplement (in 1933, at least) Bulletin Officiel de l'Ordre Maçonniqiue Orient du Rite Ancien et Primitif de Memphis-Misraim. The journal carried articles by Bricaud, Jules Bois, Constant Chevillon, and J.H. Probst-Biraben, and by "S.U. Zanne” (August Vandekerkhove, 1838-1923), the proponent of the Grande Cosmosophie which he received from his spiritual masters in 1894. In 1931, the journal carried a notable article by Bricaud on "Sir Aleister Crowley.” BNF; Amsterdamse Universiteitsbibliotheek; BM Lyon.
