The medieval period is often seen as an age of superstition. This study challenges this assumption, offering students a varied collection of documents - many of which appear in English for the first time - surveying what people throughout Europe actually thought and believed about the occult sciences at the time.

'A huge, and wonderfully rich and varied, collection of source material for the still largely unexplored history of medieval magic. Selecting and translating almost 150 passages, it covers the field in its broadest sense, from popular belief and divination to the arcane practices of alchemy and conjuration. As such, it represents a significant aid to the understanding of medieval religion in general, and a marvellous gift to teachers and students of the period, with some delights for the expert.' - Ronald Hutton, University of Bristol
