Product description


'Richard Kieckhefer offers a panoramic view of a very diverse set of problems in his cogently organised and revealing book … imaginative and stimulating …'. Journal of Medieval History

'… a readable and lively book, whose particular strengths are its confidence and clarity in defining different sorts of magical activities, and the sharp illustrative details … he deserves congratulations.' History

'The range of primary texts, often quoted from manuscript, and the coverage of secondary literature, in many languages, are impressive features. This is a valuable survey which few will read without learning something new.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

'… stands out amid the many speculative efforts which preceded it; it can be highly recommended as a concise and authoritative history of medieval magic.' Ambix

'This book can be highly recommended.' Medical History

' … an excellent introduction to an interesting and expanding subject.' BBC History Magazine

Book Description

Magic in the Middle Ages is a fascinating and wide-ranging 2000 study of natural and demonic magic within the broad context of medieval culture. It investigates the way that magic relates to the many other cultural forms of the time, in particular religion and science, literature and art.
