The magazine Ver Sacrum (Latin for "Sacred Spring") was published between 1898-1903 as the official organ of the Vereinigung bildender Künstler Österreichs (Association of Austrian Artists) and was the most important publication in the early years of the Vienna Secession. Lavishly illustrated and ornamented, its aim was to spread awareness of modern art. The magazine includes literary articles, art criticism, and art-historical essays.

Ver Sacrum started out as a monthly magazine and from the third year was issued twice a month with a smaller print run.

Contributors included Rainer Maria Rilke, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Maurice Maeterlinck, Knut Hamsun, Otto Julius Bierbaum, Richard Dehmel, Ricarda Huch, Conrad Ferdinand Meyer, Josef Maria Auchentaller and Arno Holz.
