- +

Author Claude Lecouteux presents readers with a dictionary of contemporary and historic magic words, incantations, and spells, examining their infusion into the popular imagination of Western culture. The author has organized the main body of his text alphabetically, with entries exploring terms from “Abraxasas” to “Zoar.” The book also contains appendices devoted to the use of characters in magic, cryptography, and a compiled list of magic words appearing the spells throughout the text. The author is a former faculty member of the Sorbonne, France, and the author of many books on medieval and pagan beliefs and magic. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
