Two Friends Talk History
Roman Curses and Love Magic
Show Notes

In this episode, Zofia is joined by fellow French Canadian and doctoral candidate, Celeste Du Bois, to discuss Roman curses and love magic in literature and in the archaeological evidence of curse tablets. We explore the challenges to studying religion from the bottom up (so to speak) and some of the intriguing ritual practices of people in the Greco-Roman.

I  hope you enjoy the interview!

Tangents include using Latin for exorcisms, 90s blockbusters Practical Magic and the Craft, and more!
