Author Per Faxneld

Oxford Studies in Western Esotericism

  • Uses material never before analyzed by a historian of religions, or, in many cases, by anyone else
  • Highlights a previously unknown, significant and highly colorful current in the history of feminism and alternative religion
  • Sheds new light on several important names in esotericism, art and literature, by demonstrating how their ideas stand in a tradition of Satanic feminism
  • The inter-disciplinary approach makes visible features and connections that have previously been obscured to those working only with the material and perspective of a single field
