Online Talk: Magic in Medieval Communities

Winterbourne Medieval Barn

In medieval England, magic and the supernatural were a part of everyday life. In this talk Dr Tabitha Stanmore will explore what role magic played in medieval people's everyday lives, what it was used for, how far it was trusted or feared, and how it affected community relationships. She will look at common spells and beliefs, and consider what this can tell us about the past.

Tabitha is an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Bristol, where she researches practical or 'service' magic in late medieval and early modern England. She completed her PhD, entitled Love Spells and Lost Spoons: practical magic in English society c. 1350-1650, in 2019 at the Universities of Bristol and Exeter. Tabitha has spoken on BBC Radio and The Folklore Podcast about her research, and is currently working on her first book.
