Magical Thinking Past and Present

In 2018 the medieval historian Sophie Page co-curated the exhibition Spellbound: Magic, Ritual and Witchcraft at the Ashmolean Museum, for which works were commissioned from artists Annie Cattrell and Katharine Dowson to make connections between past and present ideas and experiences of magic. Magical Thinking Past and Present supported Sophie Page’s further collaborative work to continue exploring ideas about magical thinking and the medieval cosmos.
