RELI 020 - (HP) Magic, Miracle, and Medicine in the Greco-Roman World

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
The interrelated concepts of magic, miracle (religion), and medicine in antiquity have long been topics of great interest and debate among scholars of antiquity. Magical incantations, for example, may appear to be similar to prayers, and physicians in antiquity might act like magicians. This course explores these – and many other related – issues in an attempt to identify, where possible, social constructions of the categories of magic, miracle, and medicine, and the prejudices that accompanied them.
