Gezelle's preference for language and folk studies is visible in the magazine Beehive. It gave its name to the Brugean library and still exists today.
The magazine Biekorf was founded in 1890 with the help of Gezelle and still exists today. As a "learning and reading magazine for all sensible Flemings" it encompasses popular culture in all its facets: folk science, history, archeology, linguistics and literature. Guido Gezelle was closely involved in the editing of the first volumes and published many articles in it, including a nice translation of Lou Mège de Cucugnan by the Provencal writer Roumanille.
