We’ve just released a new look to our website. Not only does this new design provide a more modern feel and tone, but it is also mobile friendly which makes browsing on phones and tablets a more pleasant experience. Enjoy!
Correspondences is simplifying its name. You can now find us under the new, simplified title of Correspondences: Journal for the Study of Esotericism. In addition to trimming a couple of fairly self-evident terms, we’ve dropped the “Western” from our old title in order to reflect an ongoing shift in global scholarship of esoteric phenomena, one which has partly unfolded in the pages of Correspondences (e.g.’Beyond the West: Towards a New Comparativism in the Study of Esotericism‘ [vol 2] and ‘The Globalization of Esotericism‘ [vol 3]).
Correspondences 5 (2017) marks our Wood Anniversary, so this volume is a celebration. Now available in finalised form, the volume features new research on Theosophy and clairvoyance, the curious neologism correspondentia, and the portrayal of reincarnation in H.P. Blavatsky’s writing. In addition, there is a review article on three recent publications in the study of Satanism and five further reviews.
We’re thrilled to present another review in the growing contents of Volume 5 of Correspondences. Julian Strube provides an excellent and lengthy examination of Eric Kurlander’s new book Hitler’s Monsters: A Supernatural History of the Third Reich, published by Yale University Press in 2017. You can read his assessment in advance form in Volume 5 (2017).
Today we’re happy to present another review in our current volume of Correspondences. Jay Johnston provides a critical examination of Sexuality and New Religious Movements, a book edited by Henrik Bogdan and James R. Lewis and released in 2014 by Palgrave. You can find the review in advance version in Volume 5.
