The Ancient Origins of the Evil Eye

The evil eye is a supernatural belief rooted in the malevolent power of a glare, often fueled by envy. Its history spans back 5,000 years, making it one of humanity’s oldest and most enduring superstitions

1. Prehistoric Beginnings:

  • Upper Paleolithic Age: Even in ancient times, people recognized the potential harm caused by envious glances. Amulets to protect against the evil eye have been discovered from this era
  • Ugarit: Texts from this ancient Syrian port city (around 1180 BC) attest to the concept of the evil eye during the late Bronze Age collapse

2. Greek and Roman Influence:

  • In Classical antiquity, the Greeks and Romans referenced the “mati” (evil eye) in their writings. Authors like Hesiod, Plato, and Pliny the Elder explored its power and protective measures
  • Artefacts from the Mediterranean and Levant regions reveal the prevalence of this belief .

3. Symbolism and Protection:

  • The evil eye is found in various cultures, including Jewish, Muslim, and Christian traditions.
  • Nazar amulets, shaped like an eye, and the hamsa, a hand-shaped talisman, are famous protections against the evil eye.
  • Glass evil eye beads gained popularity with the Phoenicians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, and Ottomans around 1500 BC

4. Regional Variations:

  • Southern Italy: Here, amulets like the cornicellocimaruta, and the sign of the horns are used for protection.
  • Arab Culture: Saying “Masha’Allah” alongside a compliment prevents envy from attracting the evil eye.
  • Brazil: Certain plants, like rue, are believed to guard against its influence.

5. A Timeless Guardian:

  • Pregnant women, children, and animals are considered particularly susceptible to the evil eye.
  • Despite cultural shifts and modernization, belief in its power persists worldwide
