About the Author

Claire Fanger is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Rice University, USA. She is the editor of Conjuring Spirits: Texts and Traditions of Medieval Ritual Magic (Penn State, 1998).


"Invoking Angels makes an important contribution to the growing scholarly literature on medieval and early modern ritual magic."

-Christopher Lehrich, Boston University

"Challenging many traditional assumptions, Fanger's collection of essays is an erudite, complex, and fascinating work of deep scholarship that needs to be incorporated into our broader quest to comprehend the intertwined worlds of religion, magic, and science in the late-medieval and early modern worlds."

-Gary K. Waite, Magic, Ritual, and Witchcraft

"Just as Conjuring Spirits did for medieval ritual magic, Invoking Angels has set a new path for the field of medieval theurgy."

-Laura Mitchell, Preternature
