Summary:  From Pat Deveney's database:

Prague, Czech Republic. Language: Czech and French. Publisher: Universalia. Editor: Jan Řebík (1867-probably 1951), Jaroslav Novák. Succeeded by: Logos
1/1, January 1933. 12 pp., free to members of the Universalia Society of hermetic students for which it was the organ. Only 2 or 3 issues seem to have been published.

The journal published mainly contributions by members of the society, including Jan Kefer, M. Alter, Pierre de Lasenic, and others, and contained notifications of events for members of the society, answered questions, gave excerpts from occult texts, and recommended literature. Its “Herold of Universalists” column printed notifications of the “Universalia, Loge de France, Paris” were published.

The journal was published by “Universalia,” (the “Czechoslovakian Society of Hermeticists”) led by Jan Řebík (1867-probably 1951). The person responsible for gazette’s content was Jaroslav Novák. It was printed by Grafické závody V. & A. Janota in Nový Bydžov. In 1934 revue “Logos – revue for esoteric understanding of life and culture” (1934-1940) was established to follow the Herold’s path.
