A Tribute to Our Master, H.Exc. Florin cav. Mihaescu, Gr. Cr. OBSS

He was born on 19.II.1923, in an intellectual family, in Tomsani (Valcea county, Romania), became Dipl. Ing. in Chemistry, and followed courses on the Letters & Philosophy Dept. of the University of Bucharest.

In his free time started to translate French authors; a key moment in his life was the encounter in 1958  with N.H. Vasile Lovinescu (1905-1984)

(on photo), an intellectual partner of Rene Guenon , Mircea Eliade, Fritjof Schuon, etc. From that moment,  Florin Mihaescu will be his intellectual disciple, after the death of Lovinescu, being his uncontested spiritual successor.

Having a huge culture, knowing several foreign languages, Florin Mihaescu not only cured the editions of Lovinescu’s works, esp. after 1989, but wrote also a number of very important doctrinal (Traditionalist) books. Here are some of them:

Also he is leading a spiritual circle „Hyperion” and supervizing the  Traditional Revue ” Scrieri si Studii Traditionale”  (the 15th. nr. in 2012).

Among other themes, knowing Maedieval English (reading Shakespeare in original) and using the  traditional hermeneutic keys, he demonstrated  the crypto-Catholicism of Shakespeare, and his profound traditional  views.

About him wrote also Prof. Claudio Mutti (Parma, Italy), a reputed defender of the Tradition, in  „Guenon in Romania” (Bucharest, 2003, Vremea) and also a  Memorial volume was printed, cured by Razesu Virgil and Iacob Dan :” O viata ca o scara: Florin Mihaescu”, Piatra Neamt, 2011, Razesu, where also some documents of the OBSS are published.

H.Exc. Florin cav. Mihaescu is a Practicant Orthodox Christian, having also a spiritual director.

H.M. King Michael I of Romania conceded the placet for Mr. Mihaescu to join the OBSS  on 9.II.1996, and he was received in the OBSS on  15.VIII.1998. On 2.IV.2002 he was nominated Great Master, maintaining the charge of Senechal of our Priory, bein our doctrinal leader. In 2009 he was created Gr. Cr.  of OBSS. Here the Royal placet is published (Placet F. Mihaescu,OBSS)
