Spellbound: Magic, Ritual and Witchcraft
Spellbound: Magic, Ritual and Witchcraft is a book produced by the Ashmolean Museum of Oxford to accompany their exciting new exhibition examining how magical thinking has been practiced over the centuries. Bringing together essays by Sophie Page, Marina Wallace, Owen Davies, Ceri Houlbrook and Malcolm Gaskill with over 160 colour and monochrome photographs and illustrations, Spellbound surveys the vast range of magical ideas and objects in European history, ranging from poppets and magical charms, to pages from magical texts and magical art. Exploring both the idea of the witch and witchcraft persecutions, and how magical thinking continues its influence upon us today, Spellbound ranges in scope from the medieval to the modern, and illustrates the rich visual and material culture of magic in its various forms, from high art to folklore, from the mystical to the everyday.
