Magic and science have traditionally been considered to have little in common. Yet for many 16th Century intellectuals, including churchmen, practising magic was based upon highly sophisticated knowledge of the natural world. For ecclesiastical censors the key issue was determining which magical practices were 'natural' and which required the assistance of demons.
