I have a hard time writing reviews for Claude Lecouteux's books. They're all dense tomes of knowledge, meticulously researched, and loaded with excerpts and references from medieval texts. One doesn't casually breeze through one of his books, you slowly follow the path that he lays out before you. And his latest "Traditional Magic Spells for Protection and Healing" is no exception.
As usual Lecouteux turns his scholar's eye towards highlighting the intersection of Christianity and Pagan beliefs, this time with medical practices tossed in. In medieval times health issues were a matter of body, the spiritual world, and spiritual concerns. Not only does Lecouteux outline means of diagnosis, but addresses the cures whether you're being afflicted with an evil spell, or tormented by a demon. Incantations against wolf bite, using alum in water to help someone regain their speech, charms against demons, and obviously so much more!
"Traditional Magic Spells for Protection and Healing" is a must for magic nerds like myself. Honestly, every Claude Lecouteux book is a must own.
