A practical, modern-day exploration of one of the oldest, most universal, and storied forms of folk magic.
Antonio Pagliarulo explores the phenomenon of the Evil Eye: what it is, its origins and causes— and, most crucially, how to avoid, repel, and remove it. Rich with cultural anecdotes and traditions, mystical lore, and modern concepts, The Evil Eye offers practical advice for shielding yourself from the destructive and lingering power of this mysterious and persistent force.
“Finally, there is a book written by an actual practitioner, in plain language, with warmth and compassion, that takes the Evil Eye and the misery it causes seriously. If you have been wondering about the Eye; if you fear it or think you have been struck by it; if you feel drawn to Evil Eye jewelry, this book is for you. May it provide you with safety, relief, and happiness.”
—from the foreword by Judika Illes, author of Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells and Pure Magic: A Complete Course in Spellcasting
“I highly recommend Antonio Pagliarulo’s contemporary exploration of this ancient and globally recognized, yet persistently enigmatic subject viewed through the lens of his own culture and experience, as well as those of people from other cultures. His writing is approachable and relatable without skimping on the requisite academia. The Evil Eye: The History, Mystery, and Magic of the Quiet Curse is an excellent resource for anyone interested in folklore and folk magic.”
—Mary-Grace Fahrun, author of Italian Folk Magic: Rue’s Kitchen Witchery
