Anthropos Heritage

The section “Anthropos Heritage” is devoted to the history of our journal and institute. Here we present short biographies of the prominent figures who made outstanding intellectual and organizational contributions to Anthropos, in the first place Fr. Wilhelm Schmidt – the founder of the journal and one of the leading exponents of the theory of cultural diffusion. In this section, we also make available a number of rare documents concerning the history of Anthropos and the intellectual heritage of Wilhelm Schmidt and his pupils.
