116. Dr. Al Cummins // The Lore & Spellcraft of the Magi & 17th Century Folk Necromancy
It is with certain seasonal celebrations in mind that we welcome back the one and only Dr. Al Cummins. Al, of course, is a professional diviner and historian, as well as a poet and consultant of all things magical. He was here not too long ago, back at the beginning of October in episode 105 where we talked about geomancy, cartomancy and other forbidden arts. And what a great companion piece that is to this chat that you’re about to hear.
Al is going to rap about a book he published earlier this year called A Book of the Magi: Lore, Prayers and Spellcraft of the Three Holy Kings. And in the Patreon extension we’ll also get into one of those other forbidden arts - necromancy, particularly as it was practiced in 17th century England, which is a period Al has some serious interest in.
One note on the chat: a couple Skype dropouts, which I did not notice live, but nothing that detrimental to the quality of the audio or the conversation, which is a rather jolly one.
