We list all known theosophical periodicals in the German language in the broader sense and not limited to those of the direct theosophical lineages, to give researchers the opportunity for broader research.

Listed in alphabetical order and with external link, when already published somewhere else.
In case of changing locations of the editors the first one is named.

Titles without file or link are not yet available or are in our digitizing process or not in our possession and therefore included in our want list.

Conformity: We save our pdf files future proof in the archival standard format PDF/A-2A, ISO 19005-2 (in rare cases it is not possible for unknown technical reasons).
