The volume numbering continues that of its predecessor. Reproduced from typescript. The journal claimed to be the successor of Sophia and El Loto Blanco, but really was a new departure in its approach to Theosophy because it was so heavily influenced by the ideas of Alice Bailey and the Arcane School. Brualla fled to Argentina during the Spanish Civil war and there started the Escuela Arcana under the influence of Bailey’s version of Theosophy. Arjuna Lodge, Barcelona, online at
