Harry Potter’s World: Renaissance Science, Magic, and Medicine

Saturday, June 2, 2018

The magic in J. K. Rowling’s series of Harry Potter novels is partially based on Renaissance traditions that played an important role in the development of Western science, including alchemy, astrology, and natural philosophy. This special exhibit explores the intersection of these worlds, featuring highlights from the collections of the History of Medicine Division at the National Library of Medicine. This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.
