Program

Syllabus
EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES: to acquire awareness of the difference between societies and cultures chronologically or geographically distant from one another; to familiarize with research tools which history has developed in conjunction with social theory; to develop strategies for the interpretation of relevant and diverse sources; to appraise the tradition of study in this field and discuss its problems.

SYLLABUS: The course will concern the various manifestations of magic in the early modern Christian world. The aim is to give account of the characteristics and the role of magical beliefs, of their stability and their changes. Particular attention will be given to modulations of magic in different social and cultural contexts, from natural magic to witchcraft and ‘superstitious’ uses of the sacred. Historical anthropology will represent the proposed methodology, with focus on a specific period of time, but chronologically open to modernity.
Therefore, the first part of the course will offer a survey of the basic concepts in historical anthropology. Subsequently, the aspects of magic (and of related cultural tools, such as astrology and alchemy) will be examined from a theoretical perspective, to move eventually to the structure of a seminar on bibliography and sources (autobiographies, inquisition trials, reports, treatises and so on). This format will require an active participation of students – which will form a key element of the final assessment of their work – systematically combining individual reading and class discussion. Attendance is therefore recommended only if it can be continuous and active.


Reference books:

For those students who will be attending lessons the exam bibliography will be given during the course; P.P. Viazzo, Introduzione all’antropologia storica, Laterza, Roma-Bari, 2000 will be required reading.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
