Research Journal of Germanic Antiquity
Available in Paperback Available in e-editions
Founded in 2011, the Research Journal of Germanic Antiquity is an independent scholarly journal devoted to preserving, translating, and circulating all early modern German religious texts (16th - 20th century). The underlying goal of this journal is to reprint rare German publications to introduce them to a new generation of researchers while placing them into their historical context.
This journal also seeks to publish articles on the subject of Western Esotericism including but not limited to Ariosophy, Atlanteology, Theosophy, Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism, Spiritualism, Norse mythology, Mesmerism, etc. We especially encourage the submission of articles that engage the subject of racism within these traditions.
