    Extensively citing (and translating) excerpts from the Babylonian technical literature of medicine, divination, and exorcism, Reiner illustrates not only the theory of astral empowerment which these fields of expertise incorporated in their prescriptions, and the deific correspondences of the stars upon which this was predicated, but also ancient Mesopotamian beliefs in general concerning the properties and applications of stones, herbs, and other materia magico-medica.

  2. Gavin White says:

    A concise and very readable exploration of the way that the stars and planets were used in magic, medicine, divination and sorcery. With many quotes from prayers and medical texts, the book builds up a fascinating picture of how the heavens and the stars were viewed and how early people sought to utilise their powers for both good and ill.
    Even though it is quite a difficult subject area the author presents the diverse material in a very clear manner.
