This class covers the history of the occult arts from the days of the great ancient Mediterranean civilizations to the horrific “witch hunts” and conflagrations of early modern Europe. Beyond the mainstream image of the witch in history (usually corrupted by modern misunderstandings), we will explore who these witches and magicians really were through primary source materials. So straddle your brooms and bring your best charms! For we are about to get wild and weird with witchy history!
Thursday, Feb 14th "Setting the Stage: Magic and Witchcraft in Antiquity" In this introductory class, we will explore the ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman magical practices that anticipate the medieval traditions.
