Aries Journal Offers Free DL of 1 Article From Each of Its 20 Volumes

Aries turns 20 this year. To celebrate the anniversary we release one article from each volume – twenty in total – for free open-access download for the duration of 2020.

This editor’s pick showcases some of the journal’s achievements over the past two decades, as well as the diversity of topics, periods, and questions explored on the journal’s pages over the years. From research articles on Russian Freemasons, medieval ritual magic, and kabbalistic spells to kill Adolf Hitler, to review articles on renaissance occult philosophy and recent debates on “nazi occultism”, the list offers well-established classics in the field side by side with lesser-known articles that deserve a wider readership and time-pieces that speak to the development of the field.
