The Greatest Medieval Wizards

A list of medieval wizards, including both real and legendary wizards and sorcerers. Pictures included where possible. Wizards from the middle-ages are where our modern concept of wizards come from. Merlin was a medieval wizard. The dark-ages were a frightening time in the western world. Rome had fallen, the church had filled the void, and the occult was ironically on the rise. While some may equate the occult with Satanism, this is a misnomer. Occultists and mystics are not the same as cultists.

Occultists simply study the unknown, bordering on the supernatural. To an unfamiliar eye, modern science could seem like magic or sorcery. For mystics and real-life wizards, white magic vs. black magic was hardly the point, as knowledge was the ultimate goal. Even modern practitioners of witchcraft, wiccans, are benevolent. So, beyond the spells and potions this list of famous wizards is a list of those who sought knowledge of the unknown, you might even call them... scientists.

Who are some Medieval Wizards? Take a look at this list and you'll some of the famous ones.
