Round Table Discussion
Seeing is Perceiving
Divination and fortune telling were not simply popular in the middle ages and the renaissance, but it was also powerful and very convincing. But why? Also, why was one individual considered more reliable in their readings than another? It all comes down to knowing your audience. Come find out how the oracles and soothsayers of the medieval world plied their trade and what tricks they learned to get better leverage with their customers. A hands on demonstration utilizing the whole class will be done.
