“There was a lot more to magic, as Harry quickly found out, than waving your wand and saying a few funny words.”
– Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, J. K. Rowling
Although perceived as fantasy, the magic depicted in the popular Harry Potter novels and films can be traced to Renaissance traditions that played a pivotal role in the development of modern science and medicine.
