Aries

Journal for the Study of Western Esotericism

Editor: Dr Egil Asprem
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.

Published under the auspices of the European Society for the Study of Western Esotericism (ESSWE).
