Harry Potter's World: Renaissance Science, Magic, and Medicine is a six-banner traveling exhibition created to explore the link between Harry Potter and the history of science using materials from the National Library of Medicine.
The Exhibit explores the world of Harry Potter and its roots in Renaissance magic, science, and medicine. In 1997, British author J.K. Rowling introduced the world to Harry Potter and a literary phenomenon was born. Although a fantasy story, the magic in the Harry Potter books is partially based on Renaissance traditions that played an important role in the development of Western science and medicine.
