The “evil eye” is rich with cultural anecdotes and traditions, mystical lore, and modern concepts. This book takes a deep dive into the origins of the evil eye, from ancient Egyptian practices to those found in ancient Greece and Rome. Most people are unaware that the world’s major monotheistic religions are replete with references to the evil eye. What did Jesus say about it in his Sermon on the Mount? The prophet Muhammad warned against the dangers of the eye, but what remedy did he provide to offset misfortune? Why and how does the evil eye appear in rabbinic literature and other Jewish texts? The Evil Eye answers these (and other) timeless questions while taking listeners on a literary journey that is at once informative, enlightening, and, at times, disturbing.
