Making Amulets Christian

Artefacts, Scribes, and Contexts

Theodore de Bruyn

Oxford Early Christian Studies

  • Offers the first comprehensive investigation of magical practices—and how they changed—as Christianity became the dominant form of religion in the Roman Empire
  • Investigates what can we learn from incantations and amulets containing Christian elements about the cultural and social location of the people who wrote them
  • Analyzes different types of amulets and the ways in which they incorporate Christian elements
