Thompson traces the history of magic in medicine in every country where it was practiced throughout the centuries, up to its counterpart in modern times, the psychological treatment of disease. Healing by incantation, by sympathy, by touch and with the aid of astrology are all described. Folk medicine and herbs of healing, precious stones, rings and girdles used in healing and even beds of healing, have their place in the strange story. An interesting volume.
