"La Rosa di Pacelso" (the name is inspired by the short story of the same title by the Argentinian author Jorge Luis Borges, “The Rose of Parcelsus”) is an editorial experience, which was born in January 2016 through the synergy of Claudio Bonvecchio, Roberto Revello and Michele Olzi. The Journal hosts articles that are scientifically and historically relevant to the field of Western esotericism and offers itself as a platform where scholars of different affiliation and background may confront each other.
The aim is that of aiding the debate in a field of study, whose interest and reception has been on the rise both at a European and at an international level, through the contribution of people belonging to the most varied fields of research. The Journal has an all-Italian organization, editorial board and cultural background, but aims towards an international and European focus and readership. For this reason, contributions in the main European languages are welcome: Italian, English, French, German and Spanish.
The editorial board is constituted by Claudio Bonvecchio (Università dell’Insubria), Roberto Revello (Mimesis Edizioni), Michele Olzi (Università degli Studi dell’Insubria), Christian Giudice (University of Gothenburg), and Sasha Chaitow (Università di Exeter).
