One type of Balkan magic is Vesticarstvo, a sorcery drawing its power from Balkan folk belief, relic shamanism, and medieval heresy. A quintessential embodiment of this power is the "zmajevit covek". or 'dragon-man'. Part human, part serpent, he possessed supernatural heredity and the power to curse, cure, and traffic with supernatural beings. Includes a complete English translation of "De Intorkatura", an age-old rite of magical combat and other Balkan witchcraft rituals never before translated into English. Color and black & white illustrations. 152 pages. Small octavo. (Item ID: X-BWd)
