CLST 10.15 Magic and the Occult in the Ancient World

From simple spells designed to meet the needs of the poor and the desperate to the complex theurgies of the philosophers, the people of the Greco-Roman world employed magic to try to influence the world around them. We will study the ancient practitioners of magic, the techniques through which they served their clientele, the bodies of occult knowledge upon which they drew, and the cultural contexts in which they operated or were thought to operate.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
