The archaeological study of magic in New World colonial contexts is a young pursuit. This talk by Deborah R. Mullins, Uof F, Ph.D. candidate will explore material culture linked with religion, folk belief, and magic in everyday contexts using deposits from Creole households in late Spanish colonial St. Augustine, Florida. Manifestations of religious-magico traditions reflect the historical and on-going intersection of a European Catholicism with the dogmas and realities of diverse Creolized populations across the Spanish Empire. This presentation will examine the importance of magic and spirituality within these households and the struggle to archaeologically identify objects associated with these convictions. This program is sponsored inpart by the Central Gulf Coast Archaeological Society. Free. Registration is requested. This 2012-2013 Lecture Series will be held the third Thursday of every month through April 2013 at The Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center. Reservation policy
