Biography

American occultist and Old Catholic Bishop, known for his book Voudon Gnostic Workbook (1988), a 615-page compendium of various occult lessons and research papers spanning the sub-fields of Voodoo, Neo-Pythagoreanism, Thelema and Gnosticism. Long considered by occultists one of the underground classics of 20th century occultism, the book was out of print for many years before it was reprinted in paperback in 2007. Bertiaux coined the term vudutronics to refer to his idiosyncratic interpretation of his religion.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield calculates an approximate time of birth from a statement made by Bertiaux in his "The Voudon Gnostic Workbook: Expanded Edition" (Weiser Books, 2007), p. 86:

"For example, my own Uranus in Aries square to my Moon- Pluto conjunction in Cancer forms a kind of a bridge. Then my Jupiter in Scorpio in relation to my Virgo rising creates another kind of a bridge. Also, the mid-heaven is associated with Uranus as the materialization of the aeon. My Vulkanus (=9) is conjunct to my mid-heaven." Date and place of birth from Wikipedia.
