Summer School “Arcane Worlds, New Frontiers in the Study of Esotericism” on site course 7-25 July 2024

Application deadline 15 March 2024

This programme is offered in cooperation with the Centre for the History of Hermetic Philosophy and Related Currents, the world’s leading institute for academic research and teaching in the field of
(western) esotericism.

The study of esotericism is a broad and many-faceted field. In the past, it has been described as ‘othered knowledge’, and esotericism has often been treated as a fringe pseudo-science, or at best, forgotten or obsolete knowledge. However, in recent years, there has been a steadily growing movement within the academy to study esotericism in its many expressesions within a scholarly framework. 
The goal of this course is to  bring together participants who are passionate about the esoteric and the occult, enabling them to delve deeply into how these studies, traditions, and related currents can be comprehended through developing a flexible yet rigorous scholarly framework.
