Harry Potter and the Sacred Text is a Harry Potter podcast created and hosted by Vanessa Zoltan and Casper ter Kuile, two Potter fans from the Harvard Divinity School. In each episode they read a chapter from one of the books, in sequential order, and discuss it by applying the same methods for reading a sacred text.

On this podcast, we ask: What if we read the books we love as if they were sacred texts? Each week, we explore a central theme through which to explore the characters and context, always grounding ourselves in the text. We’ll engage in traditional forms of sacred reading to unearth the hidden gifts within even the most mundane sentences.


The podcast has done a number of live shows and appearances.
