Magic was viewed as dangerous, irresponsible and heretical by people in the Late Middle Ages. Yet some medieval people were nevertheless compelled - by curiosity, desire and need - to experiment with it.
Dr Sophie Page will be exploring what magic was and what its practice tells us about the attitudes of medieval people to their universe and the invisible and sacred forces inhabiting it.
