Unfortunately, there is no
record in the Talmud of the
inscriptions in the amulets.
Later amulets were in-
scribed with quotations re-
levant to their specific pur-
pose. The text of the
Priestly Blessing (Num.
6:24-26) was considered ef-
fective against the "evil
eye." Permutations and
combinations of the letters
of the different names of
God were frequently used;
names of angels were also
very common.
The simplest amulet had
an inscription of the name
of God on a piece of parch-
ment or metal, usually
made of silver. The efficacy
of the amulet depended not
only on the inscription but
also on the person Nvho
wrote it; the more pious the
author the more effective

was the amulet.
Earlier magical tradi-
tions, including the use of
amulets, magic charms,
names of angels, combina-
tions of Hebrew letters, and
so on subsequenly merged
with the Kabbala and came

FAMOUS FISH & CHIPS

From earliest times, man
has tried to protect himself
from misfortune by the use
of objects which he consid-
ered holy or otherwise po-
tent.
One of the ways of doing
this, says Encyclopaedia
Judaica, was to keep the
object close to his person,
frequently wearing it as an
article of clothing, or as an
ornament. It was felt that
the evil spirits which cause
misfortune would not dare
to attack one so protected. •
The custom developed for
people to have on their per-
sons pieces of paper, parch-
ment, or metal discs in-
scribed with various
formulae which would pro-
tect the bearer from sick-
ness, the "evil eye," and
other troubles. The use of
inscription as a means to
ward off evil spirits
stemmed from a belief in
early times in the holiness
in the power of words. Such
artifacts, reports the Ju-
daica, are known as amu-
lets.

Amulets are frequently
mentioned in talmudic lit-
erature. The term used
indicates something that is
bound.or hung on the per-
son. The Talmud mentions
two sorts of amulets: a
written one, and one made
from .roots of a certain
plant. The written one in-
scribed with one or more
quotations was a parch-
ment from a variety of
sources, including the
Scriptures.
