This talk will explore the life of Michael Scott, the Wizard, of the 12th century, his impact on the intellectual world of Europe, and the adaption by Sir Walter Scott in the 19th century of this historic character into one of the major esoteric allegories of the Western Mystical Traditions.

Michael Scot (1175 – c. 1232) was a Scottish mathematician and scholar in the Middle Ages. Scot was a pioneer in the study of physiognomy. His manuscripts dealt with astrology, alchemy and the occult sciences generally and account for his popular reputation. Scot was a typical example of the polyglot wandering scholar of the Middle Ages - a churchman who knew Latin, Greek, Arabic and Hebrew.
