Prof. Davide BigalliFernando Pessoa: Esoteric Space and Time

- The birth of the heteronyms as an alchemical operation

- The arrows of time: Sebastianism as cult of the past and as projection into the future, flight from the a entristecer present

- The return of the ancient gods

- Pessoa between Neopaganism and covert Gnosticism: a Portuguese Templar?
