10 Forgotten French Occultists Who Influenced Modern History

This past November, Listverse.com posted an unusual roll-call – “10 Forgotten French Occultists Who Influenced Modern History.” The site explains:

“France has produced a lot of occultists since the Enlightenment, but they’ve been largely forgotten by history.

Sometimes, they’ve influenced the world in lasting and meaningful ways that you might not expect.”
