Bindings and curses, love charms and healing potions, amulets and talismans – from simple spells to complex group rituals, ancient societies made use of both magic and religion to influence the world around them. Join Professor Suzanne Lye for a discussion of magic and religion in the ancient Greek and Roman worlds, and learn about objects on display in Ackland Upstairs for her undergraduate course “Ancient Magic & Religion.”

Suzanne Lye, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Classics at the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her interests include Homer and Homeric Reception, Greek literature and culture, mythology, and ancient religion and magic.
