Christopher A. This collection challenges the tendency among scholars of ancient Greece to see magical and religious ritual as mutually exclusive and to ignore "magical" practices in Greek religion

Christopher A. Oxford University Press, 13 февр. This collection challenges the tendency among scholars of ancient Greece to see magical and religious ritual as mutually exclusive and to ignore "magical" practices in Greek religion. The contributors survey specific bodies of archaeological, epigraphical, and papyrological evidence for magical practices in the Greek world, and, in each case, determine whether the traditional dichotomy between magic and religion helps in any way to conceptualize the objective features of the evidence examined.

This work is a collection of ten essays by different authorities on different elements of classical Greek magic and, in some cases its interaction with official religion. This will probably appeal to two different crowds: the academics and the occultists.

Academically, I think this work is entirely without equal. The essays are incredibly insightful and provide very clear descriptions of how magic fit into Hellenic and Hellenistic cultures. The material is extremely well documented with endnotes which provide not only references but additional points of discussion. This is a book which is simply the most important book on the subject I have ever read.

For magicians, those who follow modern Hermetic, Wiccan, and related traditions will find little or nothing of value in this book. However, those who follow reconstructionist traditions (Runic, Reconstrictionist Celtic, Reconstructionist Greek, etc) will find substantial important material which can be useful either directly or for comparative studies.

Christopher Faraone's essay on agonistic contexts of binding spells is a good example. The essay provides a great deal of insight into the motivations of those who put together the binding spells in the first place. For those trying to reconstruct Greek magical ways of working, this is directly applicable. However, as a Runic magician, I find the material valuable instead for points of comparison that help clarify two separate areas of my tradition (early references to battle fetters and late medieval Scandinavian magical charms for legal success, the aegishjalmr etc).

Highly recommended.

I used this book in my PhD dissertation when it first came out. It is not an introduction to magic or for the casual reader. However, each of the articles are excellent will advance your knowledge and understanding of what magic meant to the ancient Greeks and how they practiced magic. Thoroughly enjoyable and essential to understanding the ancient world.

Important book for every magician.

Very very good. This has helped me from both a research and practical standpoint as a practicing occultist. My practice is mainly GD, Egyptian, and a bit of Voodoo. This has enriched my experience with all of them.

A good introduction to the contemporary study of magic in the classical world. That this book is a collection rather than written by a single author makes it more valuable as it provides a variety of interpritation in an area that is undergoing large scale renovations. Scholarly and a bit dry this book has nothing to do with the usual new age kook authors that make serious research into mystical studies a pain and then some.
