A while ago I wrote about the large digital archive that Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown helped fund for the Ritman Library…well, now it’s officially online, and it doesn’t disappoint!

We’re talking about complete scans of 1,600+ rare occult texts from the late 15th Century onwards. It’s pretty incredible, actually, that people can just access this once-obscure material from any Internet connection around the world. Talk about your modern-day Library of Alexandria.

I’ve bookmarked a bunch of these texts to dive into when I have the time, and I’ve included links to them below. Since I admittedly mostly read English (though I am learning a fair bit of Portuguese), these will be in that language.
