Mr. LeCour, a mysticist, organized the Society for Atlantean Studies at the Sorbonne in 1926, and, in 1927, the review Atlantis, which is still being published. He wrote several books on religious subjects, among them Hellénsme et Christianisme (Hellenism and Christianity); Le Sepiéme sens (The Seventh Sense); Saint Paul et les Mystères chrétiens (St. Paul and the Christian Mysteries), and a volume on his own mystical experience, Ma Vie mystique. His book Manifestations posthumes (Posthumous Manfestations) reflected his interest in parapsychology. He also observed the "ectoplasm experiments" of the physical medium Eva C, and took photographs of these phenomena which appeared in the Annales des Sciences Psychique (1919, No.1).
