Description
Magic in medieval Europe was primarily a service industry, used in all areas of life, from healing the sick to finding a companion and prevailing in law suits. Medieval magic practices developed from a combination of local traditions and Greco-Roman practices. But from where did the Greeks and the Romans derive their magic traditions? The Romans said they got their magic from the Greeks and the Greeks claimed it was from the Babylonians and the Persians, but both those cultures admitted they had learned from the Egyptians. This class will introduce you to Egyptian magical practices and traditions so you can see from where European practices came. I will not be recording this class.
