We’re happy to release Julian Strube’s research article “The “Baphomet” of Eliphas Lévi: Its Meaning and Historical Context” in advance form. The article demonstrates that a historical contextualization of the Baphomet leads to an understanding of its meaning that is significantly different from prevalent interpretations. You can find the article in Volume 4 (2016).
Christopher A. Plaisance’s review of Handbook of the Theosophical Current is now online in advance form. You can find it in Volume 4 (2016).
We would like to congratulate Dr. Christian Giudice of the Correspondences editorial board who publicly defended his dissertation, “Traditionalism and Occultism: Arturo Reghini and the Antimodern Reaction in Early Twentieth Century Italy,” at the University of Gothenburg on 28 October 2016.
We are happy to welcome Dr. Allan Johnson from the University of Surrey on board as our new Associate Editor! Allan specialises in esoteric currents in modernist British literature and is currently director of the Magic, Language, and Society network at the University of Surrey. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and former Marjorie G. Wynne Fellow of British Literature at Yale University.
