Abstract

The main two questions at play in this piece are: How can we define medieval magic? How or why has that definition survived in popular culture of the present? The main inspiration for these questions came from attempting to figure out for myself why I am interested in fantasy literature and somewhat more broadly why I chose MEDREN as a major. In my mind, I knew that there was a connection between those things, and I set myself the task of attempting to figure out what that connection was. After discarding a few project ideas, I eventually decided to settle on the big question: magic.
