Magic and the Search for the Divine
A belief in magic as a means of influencing the world appear to have been common in all cultures. Some of these beliefs crossed over into emerging religions giving influence to their religious celebrations. Over time, religiously-based supernatural events (”miracles”) acquired their own flavor, separating themselves from standard magic. Some modern religions such as Wicca, NeoPagan, Asatru, or Heathenism embrace connections to magic, while others retain only echoes of their distant origins.
Papers, presentations, reports, workshops and lectures are invited relating to the issues of magic within the search for the connection with the divine, whether it is in the form of the Gods, Nature, religion or simply the divine self or god-self. Some ideas related to this theme include, but are not restricted to:
~ Divinity’s place in magic
~ Magic and its relationship to religion (various or single religion)
~ Magic as a conduit to the Divine
~ History of Magic
~ Foundations of Magic
