The Legacy of Late Antique Magic in Byzantium and its Neighbours

Open Guest Lecture by Prof. Henry Maguire

This presentation draws upon the evidence of magical papyri, gems, silver and bronze amulets, pottery, and textiles to show that the visual apparatus of Late Antique magic survived among medieval Byzantine Christians as well as among Jews and Muslims, proving that occult practices were both conservative and trans-cultural.
