New content in Magic in the Middle Ages

I just added a new page in the Magic in the Middle Ages section:

Cases of Magic in Medieval England

This contains a couple of cases mentioned by Henry Charles Lea in his famous History of the Inquisition of the Middle Ages. It is interesting to note that magic was fairly rare as an offence in England, and, of course, the inquisition itself never formally operated in England.

  1. How do you plan to use magic in your novel? Will it play a subtle role or have a broad influence over the story and characters? Do you try and use magic in a realistic supernatural context, or something more fantastical?

  2. Hi Steven

    Magic will play a pretty fundamental role, but there will be some discrepancy between characters as to how much they individually believe in what is happening – some will try to rationalize events and others will put it down to magic and demons etc.
