Lecouteux, Claude. The High Magic of Talismans and Amulets. Rochester, VT: Inner Traditions, 2014. First Edition. Hardcover. Octavo. Brown boards, in original dust jacket. 264 pages, b/w illustrations. A fine copy in like dust jacket.

Drawing on his private collection of medieval manuscripts as well as his privileged access to the rare book archives of major European universities, Claude Lecouteux provides a comprehensive history of the use of talismans and amulets for protection, healing, and divine influence. He explores their use in the Western Mystery Tradition as well as Eastern and Middle Eastern beliefs about these magical objects and their incorporation - despite Church anathema - into the Christian tradition of Medieval Europe. Reviewing many different kinds of amulets and talismans used throughout the ages, such as a rabbit’s foot, horseshoe, gris-gris bag, or an inscribed parchment charged through ritual, he details the principles and symbology behind each object and shows that their use is still as widespread today as any time in the past.
