This fascinating collection investigates the origins of our most intriguing superstitions, many of which we still observe today. Hundreds of the beliefs passed down through the generations have their foundations in our ancestors efforts to ward off evil, which they blamed for hardship, illness and injustice in times when life was, as often as not, nasty, brutish and short . Black Cats and Evil Eyes sets these superstitions in their historical and social context, explaining how fear of the Devil, demons, evil spirits and witchcraft drove people to arm themselves with rituals and talismans to repel dark forces and allow them to live long and healthy lives. In examining many of our common superstitions, this book illuminates the customs, beliefs and practices that link us to an ancient, and often darker, human past.
