The Art of the Memory Palace

Twenty-five hundred years ago, the acclaimed Greek orator Simonides gifted to posterity the Method of Loci, known today as the Memory Palace Technique. Discover the fascinating history of how this system was embraced—and transformed—by Roman politicians, Medieval mystics, and Renaissance scholars, and why it died a needless death with the advent of Puritanism. Learn how this ancient knowledge remains fresh and relevant today, and how you can apply it to remember speeches, scripts, lists, or any other sequential information you value. More details HERE on the Morton Memorial Library website.
