Explore the world of Hungarian Paganism with this book's impressive collection of history, lore, and traditions from the Carpathian basin. The Hungarian people, also known as the Magyars, fused pre-Christian and Christian beliefs into their identity, and that fusion remains today. Exploring mythology, daily life, magic, and life passages, this book reveals the old ways of Hungarian practitioners.
Margit Tóth introduces you to many aspects of the Magyar cosmos, from the creation story to homestead practices. Among many other topics, you will learn how to aid a restless spirit, what magical properties the Summer Solstice bonfire has, and why you should never wash clothes on a Tuesday. This book provides insight on ancestors, nature spirits, sacred foods, healing magic, divination, and even death.
"A detailed, comprehensive, fascinating, and accessible book of folkways and magical traditions. Featuring both historical and practical material, this book will be of interest to those seeking information not only about Hungary's ancient Pagan traditions, but also its unique Catholic folk magic. Tóth is a warm, friendly presence, as she guides us into the realms of Magyar magic and spirituality...So much of the material in this book has not been available to English readers until now, making Mágia a must-have for all who love folk magic."—Judika Illes, author of Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells and Encyclopedia of Spirits
"I so loved this book! Margit Tóth has given us a wonderful gift, a treasure-trove of folklore from her own Hungary, much of which has not been available in English translation. Her words evoke a pre-modern time when every aspect of life was intrinsically embedded in the seasons of the year, and magic was the way one lived each day."—Holli Emore, executive director of Cherry Hill Seminary
