Charms, the verbal element of vernacular magical practice, form some of the most interesting elements of traditional culture. In this volume leading authorities from Europe and North America address many aspects of charms and charming, from the transmission of charms between charmers to the collection of charms by researchers in the field, from the felicity conditions that apply to acts of charming to how charm texts should be organized in a typology, from the religious elements present in the charms to their use against the 'evil eye'.
