The Mechanical Animal Corporation’s production of The Temptation of St. Anthony is a Wellcome-Trust supported project exploring ‘spirit possession’ – an area where mental health and religious experience overlap.

This panel discussion (featuring insight from Psychiatry, the Medical Humanities, and members of the creative team) explores themes raised by the show, and wider issues around the role of spiritual-based healing in modern medicine.
