dear thugg and sadosi; your cattle.

SO i was at this antique bookstore yesterday, and i bought this oldddddd book on ancient anglo-saxon magic, and its full of all sorts of potions and spells and chants etc from centuries ago, a lot of the chants are in latin lol its REALLY old. so i bought it ofc, because, well. ima be a wizard =D but anyway. =P i was flipping through, found this:

"THIS IS A REMEDY FOR YOUR CATTLE

Sing this about your cattle every evening as a protection for them:
AGIOS. AGIOS. AGIOS.

Take two .. four-edged sticks, and write on both sticks on each side one Our Father till the end.
    And leave the one stick afterwards on the floor of the barn, and lay the second stick across the other."

y'know, for next time.  :)

Hagrid face in the light of the fireplace

An Anglo-saxon magic book with spells in Latin? Anglo-saxons did not speak Latin. Sounds like you got gyped.

Problem?

Edit: Also, the word agios is Greek (Άγιος) and it means "holy." wtf is this turd you picked up?

Problem?

:troll:

Anglo-saxons did not speak latin indeed.. So.. Yeah.. pwnd.
I dunno about the word "Agios" but it might be a refference to "Aegis"? Everyone knows what an Aegis is (IT'S A FUCKING SHIELD or some object worn for defense). Anyway, I belive Finisher is right. But I am just trying ;P

its not AGAINST your cattle, its to PROTECT them!! >.<

@finisher+nossida: well as i said, ive only kinda flipped through it so far, i'm sure theres some sort of explanation as to why so much of it is in latin. theres a whole bunch of references to the bible too and to jesus and stuff. o_O but yeah.. maybe it was translated first to latin THEN to english? i'm not sure yet

ALSO, there was this other 'spell', to cure swollen/puffy eyes. your supposed to take a LIVE crab out of water, POKE OUT ITS EYES, and then put it back into the water, STILL ALIVE, and put the crab-eyes onto your neck/the neck of the person with swollen eyes. and then they'll be cured. WTF. thats horrible and cruel and disgusting, and it bothers me that people actually DID that =P
