Journal for the study of western esotericism

Leiden: Brill


Aries is the first professional academic journal specifically devoted to a long-neglected but now rapidly developing domain of research in the humanities, usually referred to as « Western Esotericism ». This field covers a variety of « alternative » currents in western religious history, including so-called « hermetic philosophy » and related currents in the early modern period; alchemy, paracelsianism and rosicrucianism; Christian kabbalah and its later developments; theosophical and illuminist currents; and various occultist and related developments during the 19th and 20th centuries, up to and including popular contemporary currents such as the New Age movement. Aries is a peer-reviewed journal publishing articles and book reviews in English, French, German and Italian.
