Count Goblet d'Alviella (b. 1846, d. 1925) was a Belgian lawyer, rector of the Université Libre de Bruxelles, a Professor of the history of religions, a prolific writer and a Masonic scholar. The migration of symbols, is one of the foundations of archaeological and cross-cultural studies on symbolism.
Using the Swastika, the Tree of Life, the Winged, the Trident and the Caduceus, he explores major themes regarding symbols using psychological, historical, cultural and anthropological knowledge of his time.
While these branches have evolved and new discoveries have been made since the introduction of his work, the methodological approach along with the thoughts of Mr. Goblet d’Alveilla remain vital to all who seek a deeper understanding of the field as well as those of esotericism and Freemasonry.
The work includes 169 illustrations and over 400 references. All illustrations have been compared with the original ones and graphically enhanced. All references have been updated when necessary. The sections ‘Biography’ and ‘Works cited’ are new to this edition.
