Le Monde de LInconnu
Le Monde de LInconnu is the primary French-language newsstand
magazine concerned with the paranormal. Subtitled Le
magazine de lhistories et de la recherche spirituelle, it was
launched in Paris, France, at the beginning of the 1980s as Le
Monde Inconnu. Known as simply LIconnu through the 1990s,
it adopted its present name with issue 275 at the beginning of
Le Monde de LInconnu covers the full range of occult and
New Age topics from magic and psychic phenomena to UFOs
and ancient mysteries. It has paid special attention to myths of
the Templars, France being the country in which the NeoTemplar
Movement (the movement founded in the years following
the French Revolution claiming historic continuity with
the medieval Order of Templars) has its most expansive presence.
Each issue carries a set of feature articles, each of which is
drawn from a different area of concern such as divination, the
practice of theurgy, prophecy, cryptozoology, or mythology.
In addition there is extensive coverage of late-breaking news in
the field, and in recent years a column reviewing paranormal
sites on the Internet has been added. Limited coverage is given
to upcoming events of relevant interest.
Le Monde de LInconnu is currently published monthly from
editorial offices at the Société de Presse Esotérique, PB 3312,
06206 Nice cedex 2, France, under the guidance of Alain Finzi,
its publication director, and Alain Continmi, its editor-in-chief.
It is distributed throughout the French-speaking world, primarily
France, Belgium, Switzerland and Quebec.
