Thanks for posting the URL. I really enjoyed reading that. I too have written a web page on the Evil Eye, looking at it primarily from a European (Jewish and Christian) point of view, rather than Muslim because i know relatively little about Islamic cultures. I was very glad to see your page because it added a lot of information to my understanding of the Evil Eye belief world-wide. The parallels beween different cultures are obvious, of course, because, as you noted, the belief goes back to ancient Sumer. My evil eye web pages are part of the Lucky W Amulet Archive and are online at Evil Eye: Horseshoe Amulet (Europe and America): Blue Beads and Horseshoe Amulet (Lebanon): Horseshoe and Eyes Amulets (Turkey): All-Seeing Eye Amulet (Turkey): Eyes-All-Over Amulet (Turkey) Eye-In-Hand Amulets (Europe, Israel, India, Turkey): Hamsa / Hamesh Hand Amulets (hand of Fatima / Miriam): Hands of Power Statuary (ancient Roman): Mano Fico (fig hand) Amulets (Italy): Mano Cornuta (horned hand) Amulets (Italy): Corno and Cornicello (coral horn) Amulets (Italy): "Your Name on Rice" Amulet (Turkey): cat yronwode Lucky W Amulet Archive --------- No personal e-mail, please; just catch me in usenet; i read it daily.
