Rejected Knowledge – The Scholarly Study of The Occult

The Warburg Institute

Dame Frances Amelia Yates
(1899-1981)

A British historian, she taught at the Warburg Institute of the University of London for many years.

She wrote extensively on the occult or Neoplatonic philosophies of the Renaissance. Her books Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition (1964), The Art of Memory (1966), and The Rosicrucian Enlightenment (1972) are major works. She dealt with traditions whose remoteness she could not eliminate, even while she made them more understandable.
