Description
Although many of us think of necromancy as purely in the realm of fantasy, there was a historical practice of necromancy that was prominent in Europe throughout the high middle ages and renaissance. In this class we will talk about the historical practice of necromancy , who necromancers were in period , what historical necromancers believed they could accomplish and what textual evidence we have for necromancy in the fifteenth century. Also , maybe you’ll learn how to raise the dead.
