Book Overview

The Greek magical papyri is a collection of magical spells and formulas, hymns, and rituals from Greco-Roman Egypt, dating from the second century B.C. to the fifth century A.D. Containing a fresh translation of the Greek papyri, as well as Coptic and Demotic texts, this new translation has been brought up to date and is now the most comprehensive collection of this literature, and the first ever in English.

The Greek Magical Papyri in Transition is an invaluable resource for scholars in a wide variety of fields, from the history of religions to the classical languages and literatures, and it will fascinate those with a general interest in the occult and the history of magic.

One of the major achievements of classical and related scholarship over the last decade.--Ioan P. Culianu, Journal for the Study of Judaism

The enormous value of this new volume lies in the fact that these texts will now be available to a much wider audience of readers, including historians or religion, anthropologists, and psychologists.--John G. Gager, Journal of Religion

This book] shows care, skill and zest. . . . Any worker in the field will welcome this sterling performance.--Peter Parsons, Times Literary Supplement
