About-

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus of Nazareth makes reference to one of the oldest beliefs in the ancient world—the malignity of an Evil Eye. The Holy Scriptures in their original languages contain no less than twenty-four references to the Evil Eye, although this is obscured by most modern Bible translations. John H. Elliott’s Beware the Evil Eye describes this belief and associated practices, its history, its voluminous appearances in ancient cultures, and the extensive research devoted to it over the centuries in order to unravel this enigma for readers who have never heard of the Evil Eye and its presence in the Bible.



The four volumes cover the ancient world from Sumer to the Middle Ages.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“...I recommend this series to anyone interested in Mesopotamian and Egyptian, Greek and Roman, and or biblical reference, illusions, and backgrounds to the evil eye. I do not think that the reader requires a great deal of previous knowledge on the subject prior to exploring Elliott’s series. He effectively introduces, summarized, and collates the discussed references with tact and grace. As previously published reviews have stated, I would also like to commend Elliott on his informative and comprehensive series.”
