The evil eye is a widespread belief that unlucky events can ensue if you attract the attention of particular people

The evil eye is a widespread belief that unlucky events can ensue if you attract the attention of particular people. These people, sometimes involuntarily, sometimes voluntarily, can cast a malignant spell on others simply by looking at them. This lavishly illustrated work is the classic study of this superstition. Starting with a mass of anecdotes from contemporary observations in Italy and rural England, Elworthy, using all of his skills as a folklorist and etymologist, delves deeper.

Frederick Thomas Elworthy (1830–1907) was an English philologist and antiquary. His two books on the evil eye and kindred superstitions contain much curious information gathered during travels in Spain, Italy, and other countries, in the course of which he made perhaps the finest collection of charms, amulets, and such-like trinkets in existence; this collection was in the possession of his widow until her death, and was then bequeathed to the Somersetshire Archæological.

Illustrated with 188 black-and-white line drawings and photographs. A fascinating account of ancient and widespread superstitions that the power of the eye can cast a malignant spell... a classic study of one of mankind's darkest fears. Drawing on sources from ancient Egypt through the beginnings of the 20th century, Frederick Thomas Elworthy (1830-1907) presents a compendium of fact and folklore on the evil eye. Throughout history and in all countries, a blighting power over individuals or the ability to manipulate events for evil purposes has long been recognized. Early authorities of the Christian Church adopted and sanctioned these beliefs, as did many medieval physicians. Today, superstitious beliefs and practices about the evil eye exist in many cultures, providing further evidences that the evil eye is one of the most hereditary and instinctive convictions of mankind. Animals can also exercise a mysterious influence over others. Snakes inspire fear and aversion, while some birds really do possess the power of fascination. But most of this unique book concerns human superstitions and powers, ranging from sympathetic magic to the influences of hands, horns, and incantations. There are examples of amulets worn to protect against the power of fascination, or household objects having the same protective purposes; there are descriptions of hidden charms containing sacred or cabalistic writings. Elsworth's absorbing and erudite study takes us throughout this dark history-- on a journey to explore the superstitious and magical solutions devised for protection against the evil eye.


I bought this book many months ago but haven't gotten around to reading it. I hate reading books. I like the topic and genre though.
Great work. Unbelievable study of hidden human power.
actually the book is better than I expecting,very complete.. but sadly the picture shows a cover and this book didn't come with one..
So I will just order another one from another seller..
