"I've read the English version of your "Manifesto", and I think that is the best paper on astrology theory I've ever read."
(Aldo Mazzucchelli, Brown University, Providence, Jan. 2001)

"Patrice, Your request is an honor as your site is spoken of highly as one of the most intelligent venues on the internet. Lois."
(Lois Rodden (1928-2003), email 7 Jul 2001)

"Le CURA est, avec d'autres moyens qui n'existaient pas il y a 25 ans, la voix de l'astrologie française dans le monde." (H. J., Nov. 2001)

"CURA remains a major island of intelligence in the vast sea of astrological stupidity." (Shelley Jordan, Jul. 2004)

"Still, serious philosophical studies of astrology are almost non-existent, except probably the works of Patrice Guinard."
(Audrius Beinorius, Vilnius University, in his review of a book of P. Curry and A. Voss, 2007)

"Best of the Web, October 2008: CURA's Digital International Astrology Library Online (DIAL) by Patrice Guinard, PhD. The Dial Website. This is an amazing site, for which generations of astrological researchers are going to bless the name of its developer: Patrice Guinard. I am already blessing everything from his name down to his cotton socks, since the site has saved me hours of chasing down original manuscripts for reference and study. Put simply, this is a project that had a definite need to exist, and it also had a need for someone capable and competent to do it right. The project and Patrice are perfectly suited to each other."
(Deborah Houlding, Leading UK astrologer, on skyscript.co.uk, Oct. 2008)

"Dear Patrice, I have received your new book, 'Historique des éditions des Prophéties de Nostradamus'. Thank you very much. You have done a fine job of researching all of the early editions of Nostradamus's 'Prophecies' and not only listing them with notes but also reproducing their title pages. (...) I want to thank you for your excellent bibliography of early astrological books that you are making available on CURA."
(James Holden (1926-2013), email 11 Jan 2009)

"I have placed these two websites of Patrice Guinard at the head of this section because of their importance to astrology in general and to the study of ancient, medieval and early modern astrology in particular. The C.U.R.A. website is a leading forum for astrological research and philosophical speculation, and the D.I.A.L. website, which is attached to the C.U.R.A. website, represents an incredible job of locating astrological texts on the websites of major European libraries. While a knowledge of Latin and other ancient languages is helpful, there are also a number of texts in modern languages including English. No serious student in this field can afford to ignore this website."
(Robert Hand, Leading US and World astrologer researcher, Jan. 2010 ; arhatmedia.com)

Patrice Guinard
Patrice Guinard est Docteur en Philosophie (TH.D. L'Astrologie : Fondements, Logique et Perspectives, Université Paris I Sorbonne).
Si l'incidence astrale n'est pas un leurre, c'est-à-dire s'il existe, à quelque niveau de réalité que ce soit, quelque force,
de quelque nature qu'elle soit, qui influe sur nos modes d'être et que la modernité veut ignorer, alors il n'est qu'une
"pratique" possible de l'astrologie : l'astrologie radicale. Tout le reste est commerce et littérature.
