Description

The study of ancient Middle Eastern magic is still in the process of forming models that account for differences in ideology between East and West. Some of the more salient differences have to do with the ways in which magical iconographic and textual objects functioned in society. As a step toward developing the needed models, this session seeks to foster dialogue on medieval Middle Eastern magic from perspectives of philology, iconography, archaeology, and cultural anthropology.
