In this episode Christopher Plaisance speaks with us about his new book "Evocating the Gods; divine evocation in the Greco-Egyptian magical papyri".

We cover the fascinating progression of binding spells, erotic spells, necromantic spells and spells of divine evocation... as Chris lays out in this impressive work. We compare and contrast the methods and concepts between Goes and Theurgists, and contemplate the landscape of the PGM. This and much more.Chris' website:
