Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes

The Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes publishes new research, of a documentary and analytical character, in the field of cultural and intellectual history. The subject matter includes art and architecture, religion, philosophy, science and literature as well as intellectual, political and social life.

The Journal was founded in 1937, as one of the first publishing projects of the Warburg Institute following its arrival in London; it was intended as an interdisciplinary forum, more extensive in scope and varied in content than the Vorträge previously published by the Kulturwissenschaftliche Bibliothek Warburg in Hamburg.

Still produced at the Warburg and edited by members of staff from that Institute as well as from the Courtauld Institute of Art, the Journal remains reliant on the extensive libraries and photographic collections which these institutions possess. The journal also depends on the collaboration of scholars from the two institutions, who, along with outside experts, participate in the review process.
