NOTE: For the similarly named periodical published in London from 1909 to 1930 by G. R. S. Mead, see The Quest.

Quest magazine, renamed from The Quest in 2010, is the public print vehicle of the Theosophical Society in America. It is the successor to The American Theosophist. The President of the TSA is the chief editor of the magazine. It was issued bimonthly until 2009, when it went to a quarterly format, with each issue planned around a broad theme. The magazine is designed to have broad appeal to the general public as well as to Theosophists.
