Charpentier, Louis (m)
Louis Charpentier (1905-1979) was a French journalist with a fascination for the mysteries of ancient history. He has written books on the Basques and the Templars,*[the latter were considered by Charpentier to have built Chartres Cathedral as a repository for ancient wisdom.]*
In 1975 he produced a paper in which he speculated on the existence of Atlantis and concluded that it probably existed as a Cro-Magnon society on an island in the Atlantic that was destroyed by the Deluge.
