Description

This session engages recent scholarship on magic and science (or natural philosophy) in the Brut, as well as in the wider Brut tradition, including work on astronomy and on the Merlinian prophecies. As evidence points to Lawman's participation in the intellectual, philosophical, and theological currents of late twelfth/early thirteenth-century England, the session invites proposals on topics related to science and magic--broadly conceived--in Lawman and in analogous Brut texts.
