Xavier Accart

Xavier Accart (born 1971) is an historian of ideas, specializing in Rene Guenon. His field of research lies at the crossroads of history of spirituality, anthropology of religion and literary creation.


Having graduated from the Institut d'études politiques d'Aix-en-Provence, he earned a doctorate from the section of religious sciences at the École pratique des hautes études. His dissertation was published under the title Guénon ou le renversement des clartés : influence d'un métaphysicien sur la vie littéraire et intellectuelle française, 1920-1970 (Paris, Édidit, 2005). By the same publisher he directed, with the collaboration of Daniel Lançon and Thierry Zarcone, L'Ermite de Duqqi : René Guénon en marge des milieux francophones égyptiens (Milan, Arché, 2001).
