Title: Esoterica: The Journal of Esoteric Studies
Url: http://www.esoteric.msu.edu/
Publisher: Michigan State University
Description: A relatively new transdisciplinary field that examines the interweavings of art, literature, early modern science, and religious studies, Esoteric Studies now has its own electronic, peer-reviewed journal. Sponsored by the College of Arts and Letters at Michigan State University, Esoterica focuses on Western esoteric spiritual traditions, "ranging from Gnosticism and Hermeticism to alchemy, magic, Christian mysticism, Kabbala, Rosicrucianism, Freemasonry, and other secret or semi-secret societies." This new journal will function as both an academic publication, featuring original scholarly articles, book reviews, and announcements, and as a research resource, offering short primary texts and links to special collections and archives. Some of the articles in the inaugural issue include "Western Esotericism and the Harmony Society," "Following Lucifer: Miltonic Evil as Gnostic Cabala," and "Things Done Wisely by a Wise Enchanter: Negotiating the Power of Words in the Thirteenth Century." Additional resources at the site include a list of recent doctoral dissertations in the field of Western Esotericism, teaching links, an image library.
