TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa will host the roots of Harry Potter's magical world beginning Monday, January 13 through February 22. The Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences Medical Library is the site of "Harry Potter's World: Renaissance Science, Magic and Medicine," a traveling exhibit from the National Library of Medicine.

The exhibit highlights aspects of the popular series by author J.K. Rowling and compares them to the history of science and medicine, according to OSU-CHS librarian Melissa Kash-Holley.

The potions, monsters, herbology, magical creatures readers love at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry are partially based on Renaissance traditions including alchemy, astrology and natural philosophy studied by 15th- and 16th century thinkers like Nicolas Flamel, Konrad Gesner and Paracelsus. Their ideas are featured in the display.

The OSU Center for Health Sciences Medical Library is located at 1111 W 17th Street in Tulsa.
