Called "Benedicaria," "Medicina Popolare," "Benedicazione," and many other names by practitioners and detractors alike, the art of folk healing and magic is ancient as the first people living on Italian soil, while at the same time modern as any of us living here and now. Shaped by the Etruscan, Roman, Catholic, and Feudal civilizations of the Old World, and surviving persecution in the New, this spiritual knowledge has survived tremendous opposition, only to find itself slowly fading away as a result of assimilation, political correctness, and theological modernism.

In this book, Father Taumaturgo explores the subject's history, its practices, and its modern situation. Certainly a must-read for parents, children, and anyone who wishes to discover this fascinating area of Italian folk spirituality.
