Abstract [en]

This essay will attempt to explore esoteric elements and connections in Hermann Hesses' final

novel

Das Glasperlenspiel and whether the narratives and beliefs held by the fictional realm of

Castalia and the protagonist Josef Knecht fit into the tradition of western esotericism as defined by

Kocku von Stuckrad and Antoine Faivre respectively. An attempt will also be made to explore why

the novel has come to influence modern esoteric movements in what Wouter Hanegraaff defines as

"New Age religion".
