Mysteries of Paris carefully examines 99 of the most intriguing mysteries, atrocities and tales of terror that have occurred in Paris in its 2,000-year history. “These have been painstakingly compiled through investigations and explorations from the Catacombs to the top of the Eiffel Tower,” notes Father Sebastiaan.
The Catacombs of Paris are 200 miles of underground tunnels, “which are home to the remains of millions of ancient Parisians,” according to Father Sebastiaan.
Other topics in the book include tales from the infamous Père Lachaise Cemetery, where Jim Morrison and Oscar Wilde are buried; sites where some of the 40,000 executions from the Reign of Terror took place; and stories about the real hunchback of Notre Dame, who inspired the Quasimodo character in the 1831 French novel.
“Paris is one of the most haunted cities in the world,” says Father Sebastiaan, who should know better than anyone else. He is the creator and tour guide for the Mysteries of Paris Ghost & Vampire Tour™, a 90-minute excursion through the city’s streets, museums and underworld.
For those who would like to experience the dark side of Paris in person, the Mysteries of Paris Ghost & Vampire Tour project website is highly recommended. The Paris Ghost Tour costs $27 and is narrated in English.
If you can’t make it to Paris and are intrigued by this subject, the new book is the next best thing. Mysteries of Paris: The Darkside of the City of Lights comes with a 40x60-inch color map that details all of the 99 mysteries unveiled in the book. Mysteries of Paris is scheduled to be released as a hardcover edition in July and a paperback in September, pending additional funding.
The additional funding is being provided through a Kickstarter campaign, which is attempting to raise $10,000 for printing, design and labor. To make a pledge, visit the Kickstarter page online.
Depending on the amount of their contributions, backers will receive maps, vouchers for the Paris Ghost Walk, T-shirts, copies of the book and Paris VIP tours.
On April 5, Father Sebastiaan will be appearing on Zak Bagan’s Netherworld show on the Travel Channel. In the past, he has been seen on CNBC, the History Channel and A&E. The New York Times and Bloomberg News have written stories about him.
“Its an exciting project expressing my passion and love for Paris’s Darkish,” says Father Sebastiaan. “We’re putting a lot of time and effort into the research artwork. It’s going to be a great book and a very unique book.”
