medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture
While I have reservations about the book's primary thesis, you may find useful the discussion in Valerie Flint, The Rise of Magic in Early Medieval Europe (1991). The texts cited there for necromantic divination mostly conflate paganism and magic.

medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

Greetings all,
Are any of the learned ones on the list aware of texts (best of all legal texts, but I´d accept any) that identify raising the dead with heathendom/paganism rather than (or as well as) magic? If the purpose is divination, so much the better (And I´d be interested in legal prohibitions of divination, though I imagine these are common). The witch of Endor in the Old Testament comes immediately to mind as a biblical parallel, and I feel sure there must be a literature on her far larger than I have the opportunity to survey in detail (assuming I could get the texts in the first place!)
Thanks in advance, 
Meg
