Lectures on the history of science, magic and religion

I was looking for some history lectures on the Middel Ages, then I found this and I can't stop listening! It's very interesting to see how science, magic and religion used to be so intertwined with each other, and how people long ago used to think so differently from us.

"Professor Courtenay Raia lectures on science and religion as historical phenomena that have evolved over time. Examines the earlier mind-set before 1700 when into science fitted elements that came eventually to be seen as magical. The course also question how Western cosmologies became "disenchanted." Magical tradition transformed into modern mysticisms is also examined as well as the political implications of these movements. Includes discussion concerning science in totalitarian settings as well as "big science" during the Cold War."
