Rheinische Vierteljahrsblätter

The Rheinische Vierteljahrsblätter (RhVjbll) is a scientific journal on the history, linguistics and folklore of the Rhineland. The journal appears annually and is published and edited in Bonn.

About the Journal

The Rheinische Vierteljahrsblätter, which appears annually in a volume of around 400 pages, publishes works on linguistic history, ethnology, cultural geography and art history. In addition to essays and smaller contributions, the Rheinische Vierteljahrsblätter contains an extensive review section, which provides a reliable overview of important new publications on Rhenish regional history. With a moving wall of two years, all volumes of the journal, which has been published since 1931, are accessible online via the ULB Bonn. Since the 2015 volume, the reviews are being posted online on the regional history review platform recensio.regio immediately after the publication of the current volume. Members of the Verein für geschichtliche Landeskunde der Rheinlande receive the Rheinische Vierteljahresblätter free of charge.
