New Webinar: Marco Pasi on Gustav Meyrink & His Esoteric Novels

The latest in a long series of webinars created by the Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica and the Centre for History of Hermetic Philosophy and Related Currents in Amsterdam has just been released. This time Marco Pasi talks about the Austrian author Gustav Meyrink (/Meyer), arguably the most important contributor to early 20th century esoteric fiction. The relation between modern esotericism and fiction is one of Pasi’s specialties (check out his work on Fernando Pessoa), and as he tells in this webinar, he’s also been a Meyrink fan since his late teens. For a solid contextualisation of Meyrink’s work, and the influence of his work (including quite a few personal anecdotes), do check out this video.

  1. Excellent! I mean to visit this place one day. I wouldn’t even mind traveling across the sea (I’m New York bound) to study here for a few days worth of time.

    @Heterodoxology — Have you visited?

    • I was at HHP in various capacities for about seven years, so yeah – I’ve been around :)
      Heterodoxology has been covering the developments of the BPH’s troubles since 2010 too, if you dig in the archives.
