"The art of predicting earthly events from the movements of the stars and planets exerts an enduring fascination. Medieval astrologers were sometimes feared as magicians, said to be in league with demons, but usually they were revered scholars whose ideas and practices permeated many layers of society and individual lives. Agriculture, politics, medicine, weather forecasting, cosmology and alchemy were all influenced by astrological concepts, calculations and iconography." "Astrology in Medieval Manuscripts describes the complexity of western medieval astrology and its place in society, as revealed by a wealth of illustrated manuscripts and historical background."--BOOK JACKET

"Diverse forms of magic were practised in the Middle Ages, from simple charms to complex and subversive rituals to summon demons. Magic in Medieval Manuscripts explores the place of magic in the medieval world, examining representations of the magician, wise-woman and witch, magical objects and ritual procedures." "Illustrated throughout from The British Library's extensive collections, Magic in Medieval Manuscripts shows how magic texts and images formed part of life in the Middle Ages. Whether expressing piety, ambition or daring, the practice of magic reveals a medieval fascination with the secrets of nature and the points of contact between this world and the celestial and infernal realms."--Jacket

Spellbound : magic, ritual & witchcraft by Sophie Page( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spellbound' explores the concept of 'magical thinking', which describes how people in all ages and cultures have sought to connect with an unseen world of perceived power. This concept of magical thinking is used here to explore the history of medicine and the mind, focusing in particular on magic's secular expressions. Spells, magical objects and rituals are engines of hope, and hope is essential to physical and mental health, indeed to survival. These ideas are explored and conveyed through the extraordinary visual culture of magic, offering an introduction to diverse magical objects, from the exquisite, such as engraved rings and illuminated manuscripts, to the unsettling - a shoe embedded in a wall or a bull's heart pierced with nails

"When Bella falls for a man at a party, shes furious with herself when she realises that she forgot to get his number. Or find out anything about him at all. Her only hope is that hes the one who picked up her phone, which she dropped when she left the party. Crossing her fingers, Bella calls her phone and cant believe her luck when the deep voice she remembers from the night before answers it. However, Richard isnt just a tall, dark, handsome man, he is the heir to the throne, and as soon as Bella enters his world, her life changes for ever. Surrounded by bodyguards, press secretaries, and flatterers, there doesnt seem to be room for Bella in Richards life, but hes fallen for her and wont let anything stand in their way. But its hard for an everyday girl to be accepted in a royal world, particularly when so many people dont want her there. In fact, some of her public outings are so disastrous, Bella cant help wondering whether someone is deliberately trying to make her look stupid. Richard doesnt seem to mind, though. He doesnt care what anyone else thinks, and hes determined to show the world how much he loves her. But if Bella thought being a royal girlfriend was tough, its nothing compared to being a royal fiancée. Can this ordinary girl survive the preparations for her very own Royal Wedding?"--Publisher description
The Routledge history of medieval magic by Sophie Page( )

5 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Routledge History of Medieval Magic brings together the work of scholars from across Europe and North America to provide extensive insights into recent developments in the study of medieval magic between c.1100 and c.1500. This book covers a wide range of topics, including the magical texts which circulated in medieval Europe, the attitudes of intellectuals and churchmen to magic, the ways in which magic intersected with other aspects of medieval culture, and the early witch trials of the fifteenth century. In doing so, it offers the reader a detailed look at the impact that magic had within medieval society, such as its relationship to gender roles, natural philosophy, and courtly culture. This is furthered by the book's interdisciplinary approach, containing chapters dedicated to archaeology, literature, music, and visual culture, as well as texts and manuscripts. The Routledge History of Medieval Magic also outlines how research on this subject could develop in the future, highlighting under-explored subjects, unpublished sources, and new approaches to the topic. It is the ideal book for both established scholars and students of medieval magic
