This was strictly speaking a Masonic journal but it is included here because its editor was Joseph Paul Oswald Wirth (1860-1943), a notable occultist of the period and the principal proponent of Masonry as a valid, traditional "path" to initiation. He was the head of the G.M.E.I., the Groupe Maconnique d'Etudes Initiatiques. He had begun his occult career as the secretary of Stanislas de Guaita, whose Serpent de Genese he completed, and with whom he infiltrated and exposed the satanic rituals of Abbe Joseph-Antoine Boullan -- leading to the famous occult duel between J.-K. Huysmans and Jules Bois. He crafted the Tarot Kabbalistique et Astrologique of the 22 major arcana, and wrote for and collaborated in many of the leading occult journals of period like L'Initiation, Union Occulte Francaise, l'Echo de l'au-dela et d'ici-bas, L'Acacia, and Le Symbolisme. The journal contains a Masonic necrology and chronology and articles by Wirth, Leo Marnes and others on initiation, "Les Arcanes du Tarot," BNF.
