The Magical Transference of Disease


Author(s):
Abstract:
The magical transference of disease is one of the most engaging subjects in the whole fields of folk medicine. Whether found among primitive peoples in remote parts of the world or in 20th-century America, the practice of ridding a person of a disease by transferring the malady to another person, animal, plant, or other various objects rests on sympathetic magic.
