Welcome to the website of the Occult Minds project. Occult Minds is an interdisciplinary research project in the history of esotericism and the cognitive science of religion, conducted by Dr. Egil Asprem. Originating in a two-year post-doc project in the Religion, Experience, and Mind Lab at UC Santa Barbara (2013-2015) funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), this ongoing project is currently conducted from Stockholm University, Sweden. On the website you can find information about the project, and keep track of progress and results as they appear. It also features a research blog, and useful links to journals, scholarly societies, and websites of interest.
