About the Event

Previous participation and previous knowledge not required.

What is magic? How is it different from religion? In this reading group, we will explore the often-very-thin line between the two as we learn about curse tablets and other forms of ancient magic. Dazzle your friends with your deep knowledge of the proper magic rituals for ensuring your own success and the failure of your rivals across so many spheres of daily life! Put those left-over sheets of lead to good use! Join me on a tour of the Greco-Roman system of magic - no prior knowledge required.

Participants only need to register for each SASA Reading Group once. Once you RSVP you will receive a Confirmation Email, where you will find a link to the Live Syllabus for the Reading Group; with Zoom Meeting links, reading links, info on your Educational Ambassadors, and more!

Length: 3-weeks

Day/Time: Fridays @ 6 pm EDT 

Starting: August 6th 

Ending: August 20th
