The Anglo-Saxon Charms book.

A collection of Anglo-Saxon charms collected and translated by Felix Grendon. With four exceptions, this book included all extant Old English conjurations, although these were not all arranged consecutively. Indeed, the two sections of charms comprised but a fraction of the whole body of spells, the majority of which were scattered through the several books of recipes. Cockayne did not attempt any interpretative treatment of the incantations, but confined himself to a discussion of the Greek and Latin sources from which many Anglo-Saxon charms were borrowed.

Anglo -saxon- charms. Speculum in by felix grendon. The anglo-saxon charms. This Anglo-Saxon "Herbarium" is really a free translation with interpolations from Germanic folk-lore of a book of medical recipes ascribed to Lucius Apuleius (born about A. D. 125). Some exorcismal and herbal charms appear in the foregoing manu- scripts, but a majority of the A and B spells are scattered through sixteen manuscripts variously preserved in the British Museum, in the Cam- bridge Corpus Christi Library, and in the Bodleian and Hatton Libra- ries at Oxford.

Anglo-Saxon metrical charms were sets of instructions generally written to magically resolve a situation or disease. Usually, these charms involve some sort of physical action, including making a medical potion, repeating a certain set of words, or writing a specific set of words on an object. These Anglo-Saxon charms tell a great deal about medieval medical theory and practice.
