Esoteric Traditions and Occult Thought

In this class we read, translate and comment upon texts written in Arabic or Latin (and especially texts which have been translated from Arabic into Latin) on all branches of esoterism, from talismans and ceremonial magic, to geomancy, scapulimancy and magic squares. A familiarity with one of the two languages is an advantage.

If you wish to take part please contact Dr Liana Saif before attending your first class: Liana.Saif@sas.ac.uk
