Ben zi bena – Die Magie der Zaubersprüche

Gibt es Zauberei? Vor über 1000 Jahren glaubten die Menschen an Wunder und legten große Hoffnung in die Kraft ihrer Worte und den Beistand der Götter. Der Merseburger Dom bewahrt einen weltweit einzigartigen Schatz aus dieser Zeit: die Merseburger Zaubersprüche, die einzigen in Deutschland erhaltenen heidnischen Beschwörungsformeln. Wir begeben uns an die Fundorte der Zaubersprüche und erläutern
Ben zi bena – Die Magie der Zaubersprüche

Does magic exist? More than 1000 years ago, people believed in miracles and placed great hope in the power of their words and the assistance of the gods. Merseburg Cathedral preserves a worldwide unique treasure from this time: the Merseburg Spells, the only pagan incantations preserved in Germany. We go to the places where the spells were found and explain how people lived, worked and spoke at that time. We will also try out the mystical-sounding Old High German language ourselves and decipher the mysterious Carolingian minuscules. Who will join in the magic?
Tip: On Children's Day, schoolchildren up to 14 years of age have free admission to Merseburg Cathedral all day.
