'Against Twenty-Five and Thirty Devils' - Two Ethiopian Painted Amulets from the British Museum
Languages of publication
The paper discusses two paintings on parchment preserved in the British Museum collection, one representing the cycle of Moses, the second St. Mary, St. George and a pair of suppliants. Both are found to be amulets, although they lack protective prayers, which is an unusual feature. Their effectiveness is based upon a carefully chosen set of apotropaic images.
