Quick Overview

This thought-provoking collection of magical texts from ancient Egypt shows the exotic rituals, esoteric healing practices, supernatural, and occult dimensions that flowered in the early Christian world, a time and place that also gave rise to the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Marvin E. Meyer & Richard Smith

From the editor: These remarkable Christian magical texts include curses, spells of protection from "headless powers" and evil spirits, spells invoking thunderous powers, descriptions of fire baptism, and even recipes from a magical "cookbook" or "grimoire." Virtually all the texts are by Coptic Christians, and they date from about the first to twelfth centuries of the Common Era, with the majority from late antiquity. By placing these rarely seen texts in historical context and discussing their significance, the authors explore the place of healing, prayer, miracles, and magic in the early Christian experience, and expand our understanding of Christianity and Gnosticism as a vital - religion.
