Project on the Papyrus Magical Handbooks

THE AWOL BLOG: Transmission of Magical Knowledge in Antiquity: The Papyrus Magical Handbooks in Context.
More than forty such handbooks survive, some of them in a fragmentary state. We propose to re-edit and re-translate these handbooks, as well as to carry out their first large-scale study as material objects and media of cultural transmission.
The Greek Magical Papyri, as well as Egyptian-language works.
