Vestische Zeitschrift. Zeitschrift der Vereine für Orts- und Heimatkunde im Vest Recklinghausen

Since 1891 the “Vestic Journal” is the leading journal on regional history in the region defined by the two rivers Emscher and Lippe, that is for the northern Ruhr area.

Cover Vestische Zeitschrift 107 (2018–2019)

Since the establishment of an umbrella organisation of the Associations for Local and Regional Studies in the District of Recklinghausen (1890) the Vestische Zeitschrift [Vestic Journal. Journal of the Associations for Local and Regional Studies in the Vest Recklinghausen] conceives itself as a scholarly forum for research on topics referring to the civic and regional history of the region defined by the rivers Emscher and Lippe. In its original scope the journal focused on the “Vest Recklinghausen”, in existence until 1802, which from 1180 onwards – that is in the course of the expansion of the territorial rule of the archbishops of Cologne into Westphalia – developed into a territory ruled by the prince electors of Cologne. Notwithstanding the changing territorial borders, that concurrently define the programme and profile of the journal in respect to history and geography, today articles on the Vest Recklinghausen and articles dealing with developments and historical events in the District of Recklinghausen since 1816 are equally represented.

With an average of ten articles per volume the Vestische Zeitschrift offers a spectrum of studies reaching from the Middle Ages to the Modern History of the 20th century. In addition the journal comprises a review section with selected new appearances on the history of Westphalia, the northern Ruhr area or the history of towns in the region.
