History and profileEdit
Heretica was established in 1948. One of the founders was Thorkild Bjørnvig. It was largely inspired by the British periodical The Criterion by T. S. Eliot. The magazine adopted an anti-ideological humanism approach. The magazine ended publication in 1953 and was succeeded by another magazine, Vindrosen.
