Review Quotes
Elizabeth Gray, Harvard University
"Charms, Charmers and Charming in Ireland introduces the reader to the range of medieval and modern Irish charms and illuminates the complex and changing cultural contexts in which such charms were employed and transmitted. Striking a good balance between earlier and later sources, this outstanding collection will be of value to readers interested in medieval Irish medicine and Irish folklore, as well as to readers with general interests in alternative approaches to health and healing."
James Kapaló, University College Cork
"Connecting ancient and modern, textual and oral traditions, this collection of essays is a landmark publication in the field of Irish charm scholarship. For the first time, readers can access the richness of Irish charm materials insightfully interpreted and theorized by the very best scholars in the field."
