As readers of Heterodoxology will know, the Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica in Amsterdam hosts a webinar series on aspects of Western esotericism in collaboration with lecturers at the UvA. The latest lecture was published last week: This time Peter Forshaw talks about our old favourite John Dee, focusing on his Monas Hieroglyphica. Check it out below!
In addition, the BPH has released a video from a tour at the library given to a group of students from the University of Amsterdam’s esotericism programme. The wonderfully knowledgeable Cis van Heertum guides through the “Alchemy on the Amstel” exhibition, while the curator José Bouman gives a glimpse into rare books in the collection.
