London Summer CCSA: Magic & Science in Elizabethan England
July 10, 2014 - August 11, 2014
We will study real magic in Queen Elizabeth’s England. We will read the works of Sorcerers and Occult philosophers, visit Stonehenge and see actual instruments used in 16th century magical rituals in the British Museum. We will look at magic in Shakespeare’s plays and visit Shakespeare’s birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon, and see multiple live productions at the Globe Theatre and elsewhere. Finally, we will study the development of modern science out of magic and alchemy through a study of Sir Francis Bacon, a remarkable polymath. We will track his legacy from Gray’s Inn to the Royal Observatory.
