Thema Danicum available online

The Danish chess composition magazine Thema Danicum was published from 1976 to 2007. It is now available at the webpage of the Danish Chess Problem Society

The 16 volumes (32 years) of Thema Danicum consist of 128 issues with a total of 3248 pages and close to 6.000 original compositions, many of which are neither in WinChloe nor in the free online databases like YACPDB and PDB.

Please notice that the 128 PDF-files and the indexes accompanying them are searchable. Feel free to download the PDF’s and make them available from your own websites. Just link to

Jan Mortensen was the general editor of Thema Danicum from 1976-1990. He was followed by Holger Helledie from 1990-1994. During the final thirteen years of the magazine’s existence Leif Schmidt was the general editor as well as the originals editor. When he stepped down in 2007 it was decided to close the magazine. In 2008, Thema Danicum was succeeded by Problemskak with Bjørn Enemark as the general editor.

In addition to Thema Danicum you will find the yearbooks of the Danish Chess Problem Society (Aarskrift for Dansk Skakproblem Klub) from the years 1932-1940 + 1942 + 1944 + 1949. Also available is Dansk Skakproblem Klub jubilæumsskrift (Jubilee Magazine of the Danish Chess Problem Society), which was published in 1982 in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the society.

Best wishes,
Bjørn Enemark and Steffen Slumstrup Nielsen
