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.

A Learning and Reading Magazine for all Sensible Flemings

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.
