Description
To the Elizabethans it was not a question of 'Did magic exist?', because everyone knew it did. The question was rather 'What type of magic was one dealing with?'. This class will examine witchcraft, cunning folks' magic and the high magic of Dr. John Dee and alchemists as practiced during the Elizabethan period.
