Rezensionen
"The Theatre of the Occult Revival provides a thorough and engaging review of the relationship between new religious movements and the dramatic theatre since the late nineteenth century. While the primary audience for the book is clearly scholars and students of theatre and religion, the insights that Lingan provides into the relationship among these movements and the Symbolist theatre make the book a significant contribution to the general study of late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century theatre." (Kurt Taroff, Theatre Journal, Vol. 68 (1), March, 2016)
