Jewish Magic from Talmudic Times: What it is and How it is still with us Today
Anton discusses the research behind her novels, Rav Hisda’s Daughter: Apprentice and its sequel, Enchantress, which takes place in 4th century Babylonia as the Talmud is created. She will focus on ancient Jewish magic, including archaeological evidence and spells from the Talmud itself, some of which have formed the basis for prayers and blessings found in today's prayer books.
