Those students who are familiar with the Greek gods will relish this deep dive into the praxis of Hellenic devotion and sorcery as revealed in the literature, hymns, and spells of the age. 

We will focus on Hekate’s role throughout, exploring how the Queen of the Crossroads was honored and invoked to provide the devotee with protection, power, guidance, advantage and access to immortal spirits. 

We will cover both Hekate’s theurgic and necromantic functions, and the evolution of her image over time. The class will increase the students’ understanding of the cultural context from which Hekate’s cult arose, and the actual magical means by which she was propitiated, invoked and compelled.
