About this product
- DescriptionSince Neolithic times people have feared the evil eye - the potent stare of an envious person, believed to cause sickness, suffering or even death. This intriguing book explains where the Bible, the Koran and most religions warn of its dangers and offer defences against it, as well as revealing the more ancient secrets of amulets, purifying rituals and protective gestures still used across the world to this day. After reading this book, you will never see the world in quite the same way again. The author, who studied Classical History at Cambridge University, interviewed shamans and believers in the evil eye around the world to research this highly entertaining book, which has over 80 illustrations.
- Author BiographyThe author, who studied Classical History at Cambridge University, has had a lifelong passion for history and for learning about foreign cultures. She grew up in London and has worked in Istanbul, Milan and New York in the financial industry. She currently works as a writer and translator and lives in Sicily with her husband and son. The evil eye has long been a particular interest of hers. She has visited forty-seven countries so far (and hopes to visit many more) and has interviewed shamans and believers in the evil eye around the world to research this book.
