Research Overview

I am primarily interested in New, Alternative and Non-Mainstream Religiosity and Western Esotericism, though other areas of interest include Religion and Popular Culture, Occulture, and Religion and Transhumanism. My current research focuses on the links between esoteric currents (Swedenborgianism, Kabbalah, Freemasonry, Neoplatonism, Alchemy and Hermeticism) and early Mormonism.
