Dr Orietta da Rold posts a new blog, Paper as Commodity in Medieval Magical and Medical Practices, as part of ‘The Recipes Project: Food, Magic, Art, Science and Medicine’.

‘The Recipes Project’  is an international group of scholars interested in the history of recipes, ranging from magical charms to veterinary remedies. Old recipes can tell us a lot about the past, such as how medicines were prepared, when certain foods became popular, or why ingredients might be magical.
