I must not have been looking too closely at my conference abstracts, because this one got past me.
On June 22-23, the Sophia Centre for the Study of Cosmology in Culture will be holding a conference on celestial magic at Bath. The title shouldn’t fool you, as they’ve got papers on all manner of topics: the Picatrix, the Greek Magical Papyri, the grimoires, Eliphas Levi, Carl Jung’s Red Book, alchemy, Romanian folk magic, gems, theurgy, et cetera. If you don’t believe me, go through through the abstracts and see all the great things you can see.
As I won’t be in England at that time, I’d heartily encourage this for anyone who’s interested in any of the above topics.
I’ll have a more general update later.
