Harry Potter's Renaissance Science, Magic and Medicine Exhibit Now on Display at the SMC Library

Harry Potters World

“There was a lot more to magic, as Harry quickly found out, than waving your wand and saying a few funny words”

Now through January 20th in the Hunter-Rice Library
(At the Corner of Woodruff and Washington Streets)

Harry Potter’s World: Renaissance Science, Magic, and Medicine

This traveling exhibit, developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, explores Harry Potter’s world and its roots in Renaissance science.  Although fantasy, the
magic in the Harry Potter books is partially based on Renaissance traditions that played an important role in the development of Western science, including alchemy, astrology, and natural philosophy.
