About Heterodoxology

Heterodoxology is the blog of a scholar of religion, Western esotericism, and the fringes of the history of science. The blog is dedicated to exploring unconventional thought and behaviour across the board of Western culture.

Heterodoxology started as an extension of my PhD project at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands (defended cum laude in 2013), which looked at various interconnections, encounters and struggles between esoteric thought and modern science. The  interplay between heterodoxy, orthodoxy, and popular “doxa” remains the focal point.

The ornamented letter “H” on the front page is taken from Die Bücher-Ornamentik Der Renaissance, assembled by the German antiquarian and bookseller A. F. Butsch and published in Leipzig in 1878.
