Civilization Is Wherever The Altar Is Found
“Wherever an altar is found, there civilization exists.”–Joseph de Maistre
Joseph de Maistre was born on April 1, 1753 in Chambréy, France. After studying with the Jesuits, he became a member of the Savoy Senate, following in his father’s footsteps. Following the invasion of Savoy by Napoleon, Joseph went into exile in Switzerland. He believed there was a need for Christian supremacy and the rule of both a king and a pope. He died on February 26, 1821 in Turin, Italy—then known as the kingdom of Sardinia.
