Images and Texts on “Magical” Artifacts

Edited by: Sarah Kiyanrad, Christoffer Theis, and Laura Willer

Discussion about artifacts with “magical” effects generally focuses on the explicit messages written on them, but what is the relationship between text and image? Does the “magic” come from an interaction between these two elements or should they be interpreted separately? This volume examines the intricate relationship between text and image on amulets and cameos, among others, across different cultures and centuries.
