Documentary collection

fondo documentale

Today, with “Eranos Archive,” we don’t refer to the original collection of symbolical representations of the Eranos Archive for Research in Symbolism, which in the 1950s Mrs. Olga Fröbe-Kapteyn donated to the Warburg Institute in London, where this extraordinary material is still kept (only few exemplars of the original collection are still preserved at Eranos). Rather, with “Eranos Archive” we refer to the archival materials that testify to the cultural activity of the Foundation from the early 1930s till today. The Archive includes handwritten and typescript documents, letters, photographs, iconographic materials, and exchanges of correspondence that took place between Olga Fröbe-Kapteyn and the lecturers involved in the Eranos project. The Foundation evaluates applications to allow access to the Eranos Archive, in order to carry out specific research projects supported by a promoting university institution.
