▬▬▬▬▬▬ COURSE SUMMARY ▬▬▬▬▬▬ Divination has been used in cultures around the world for millennia. Many of these types of divination have recently become popular with young people, thanks to some popular wizard books that feature divination as a class at wizard schools. But...what is divination, and what does it look like in the real world? In this class, we will examine fifteen types of divination through a historical lens. Where did these types of divination come from? How were they done...
- What do people believe divination to be? - What types of divination are found in the wizard world books? - What is the history of each of these types of divination? - How (if at all) are these divination methods practiced in modern day?
This course takes a historical approach to divination. In this class, it is taught that divination cannot be proven by science. Students will be asked to respect others' beliefs in this class, but the approach will be a historical one. Please note that the instructor is not a believer of divination; this course is taught from a historical point of view.
