Jean Hani; John Champoux; Robert Procter. Jean Borella, author of The Secret of the Christian Way, and The Crisis of Religious Symbolism (forthcoming from Angelico Press). Jean Hani (1917-2012), former professor emeritus at the University of Amiens, was the founder of the Centre de Recherche sur l'Antiquité Classique and a frequent contributor to the journal Connaissance des Religions. After writing his PhD thesis on the influence of Egyptian thought upon Plutarch, he produced annotated translations of the latter's writings for the well-known Collection Budé.

Symbolism, a leading fine art and literary movement, started as a reaction to the Naturalism and Realism movements of the period. The Symbolists emancipated their writing style and subject matter from a scientific description that eliminated all fantasy, all emotions, and inconsistencies. Symbolism shook the foundations of Naturalism by rejecting, though not entirely, the use of the law of cause and effect in literature

That sacred art scarcely exists today is all too clear. We can perhaps speak of a “religious,” but certainly not a sacred art. True sacred art is not sentimental or psychological, but ontological and cosmological in nature. Sacred art cannot be the result of the feelings, fantasies, or even “thought” of the artist—as with most modern art—but rather the translation of a reality largely surpassing the limits of human individuality. Sacred art is precisely a supra-human art. The temple of former times was an “instrument” of recollection, joy, sacrifice, and exaltation. First through the harmonious combination of a thousand crafted symbols, then by offering itself as a receptacle to the symbols of the liturgy. For the temple and the liturgy together constitute a prodigious formula capable of preparing man to become aware of the descent of Grace, of the epiphany of the Spirit in corporeity. It is a matter of urgency, then, to recall what is true in sacred art, especially since in the cultural wasteland of our age signs of resistance to its anarchy and subversion manifest themselves, and a pressing call is felt to recover the traditional conceptions that must form the basis and condition of any restoration.

“Through his research into hidden or lost meanings, Jean Hani has revealed and restored to our attention the most ‘initiatic’ dimensions of the Christian religion.” Jean Borella, author of The Secret of the Christian Way, and The Crisis of Religious Symbolism (forthcoming from Angelico Press)

It is wonderful to have the two books by Hani re-printed by Angelico Press given the great interest in the Latin liturgy today.

Angelico has prepared new editions (freshly typeset) of a pair of superb books by Jean Hani (1917-2012), namely, The Divine Liturgy: Insights Into Its Mystery (published in French in 1981 and in English translation in 2008) and The Symbolism of the Christian Temple (published in French in 1978 and in English translation in 2007). The two books clearly belong together: while there is no duplication of content, there is a kind of double-helix relationship between them.

These books are commentaries on the structure and symbolism of the liturgy, its spatio-temporal environment, and the fundamental cosmic and anthropological foundations on which it rests. In this sense, one may describe these books as delivering a comprehensive phenomenology of traditional liturgy, but without the cluttersome jargon typical of much modern French academic writing. Hani's style is refreshingly straightforward as he impressively weaves together numerological, cosmological, psychological, and mystical modes of discourse. Were there ever any doubt that traditional Christian liturgy is deeper than the deepest ocean and vaster than the canopy of heaven, these two books would obliterate it instantly.

The books are graced with many diagrams and photographs that illustrate the points made in the text. Hani conscientious connects universal axioms or postulates to concrete examples of them, particularly from the Middle Ages, so that he does not seem to be spinning ideas out of his fantasy. One cannot fail to notice that these books constitute a subtle critique of modern liturgical reform and the shallow and shifting foundation on which it rests, as compared with the massive pillars that support the liturgical rites of East and West to which he continually refers.

Lovers of symbols and chants, check out the Hani books.
