Varner's book tells the tale of the amulet from the small goddess figurines of 30,000 BCE to contemporary crucifixes, saint's medals, copper bracelets, bladed weaponry, totem animals, "nail figures" from the Congo and Native American figures. Amulets used for healing, protection and spell-work are discussed in detail. Illustrated and indexed. Soon to be available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other online retailers around the world.

Description: Amulets and charms have been used since mankind evolved from its distant origins millions of years ago. They have been used to protect and to harm, and in both the practice and avoidance of witchcraft and sorcery. They are made of wood and stone, clay, metal, plants and dead animals. They are carved into crude shapes and in the most exquisite forms. They are also comprised entirely of words, which are believed to have power and magical properties. Amulets and charms have been used by pagans, Christians, Jews and followers of every faith and tradition known across the world. Some are considered direct links to the gods, others to local spirits. All are links to the supernatural. Regardless if they are called amulets, charms or talismans, these objects are credited with cures, evil spells, health and prosperity. This book will explore the history, use and folklore concerning amulets and will show that amulets continue to be an important part of our modern culture.    web metrics
