Another event for the July calendar, via The Owen Society for Hermetic and Spiritual Enlightenment.
July 29th, from noon until 3pm.
Come and discover how the ancient
Greco-Roman world used small etched lead sheets to seek not only revenge
and retribution, but also love and happiness. In addition to a
discussion of the purpose, production, and use of curse tablets, this
presentation will show participants how to make their own in case the need ever arises.
Eitel August Wilhelm Adelbert Oskar Joachim Viktoria, Graf von
Pappenheim, is a specialist in ancient evil manuscripts working in the
service of the German Reich.
Jim Kollenbroich has a PhD in History and works in the Graduate College of the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Due to the space constraints at Owen and Engine, our Society may either
have a maximum of 15 people for the parlor room or we may use the
entire upstairs, but must purchase $1000 in food and drink as a group
(this means a minimum of 40 attendees buying a full brunch and drink,
around $25 before tip and tax). So, in order to plan for the event, we
ask that you RSVP by emailing the professor at firstname.lastname@example.org to
confirm that you will be attending the lecture.
All RSVPs will
be served on a first come, first serve basis. Should we reach 40
confirmed attendees, everyone will be welcome (and welcome to bring
guests too). Otherwise, your name will go on our waiting list for one of
15 coveted slots in the parlor room and you'll be notified the week of
As always, neo-Victorian and Steampunk dress is strongly encouraged at all meetings of the Owen Society.
