Ancient Book Of Spells Found!

An ancient Egyptian handbook of ritual power, discovered in1981 has been recently translated containing love spells, spells to exorcise evil spirits as well as other spells to treat medical conditions. This 20 page book written in Copic, an Egyptian language, was written on parchment and is over 1,300 years old.

Malcolm Choat and Iain Gardner, professors at Macquarie University and the University of Sydney stated in an article taken from the Washington Post, that this ancient book “starts with a lengthy series of invocations that culminate with drawings and words of power, followed by a number of prescriptions or spells to cure possession by spirits and various ailments, or to bring success in love and business.”

It is believed that the codex may date as early as the 7th or 8th century.
