About the Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes

The Journal is intended as an interdisciplinary forum for scholars specialising in art history, the history of ideas and cultural history. It publishes articles based on new research, normally from primary sources. Topics include the arts in their various forms, religion, philosophy, science, literature and magic, as well as intellectual, political and social life, from antiquity to the dawn of the contemporary era. Usually the subjects discussed either centre on or have some connection with Western, typically European cultures; therefore, too, the Journal provides a home for research into the many interconnections between those cultures and others which have flourished beyond European borders - particularly, but by no means limited to, the cultures and learning of the Near East.

Founded in 1937 as one of the first publishing projects of the Warburg Institute following its arrival in London, the Journal of the Warburg Institute became the Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes two years later and has flourished as a collaborative enterprise since that time. Still produced in-house at the Warburg, the Journal relies on Editorial and Advisory Board members drawn from both the Warburg Institute and the Courtauld Institute of Art, and on our two institutions’ extensive scholarly libraries, research facilities and international links and networks.
