The word "amulet" comes from the Latin word "protection". Real amulet is one way of attracting the patronage of the good forces, dating back to the early beliefs of ancient people. Pliny had recourse to their aid himself, and wrote about the three types of amulets, which became widespread among the Romans of the classical era. Typical amulet of that time was a piece of parchment with the formula spells guardian. It was worn around the neck, turning and thrusting a metal cylinder. Perhaps the best known among amulets is an amulet against the evil eye. People believe in his power. Also always been popular phallic symbols in the form of horns, hands, and, of course, the phallus. Some amulets devote a god or goddess, and the one who wore it, was under the patronage of the deity.

Also, they loved amulets and talismans in the form of animals, gives them the inherent properties of these animals: an amulet in the form of Leo confer courage, in the form of the Ox - strengthens sexual potency, and so on. The ancient Egyptians always placed amulets at the burial in the tomb, many of which now can be seen in museums. The ancient Egyptians were made of a material called faience - glazed mixture of crushed quartz, usually blue-green color. The more affluent residents of the Nile (the members of the royal family and the caste of priests) wore amulets made of gemstones and crystals. Lapis lazuli, perhaps, valued more than others. This mineral produced amulets of various forms. The most revered religious symbol was the eye of Horus, then went scarab - a symbol of rebirth, the frog - a symbol of fertility, and the Ank - a symbol of eternal life.

World Religions borrowed the amulets too. In the Middle Ages, almost all were small amulet with a short verse from the Torah, the Bible or the Koran. In our days, many Catholics wear a medallion with the face of a saint, for example, St. Christopher, patron saint of wanderers, magicians involved with black magic, and modern Pagans vehemently advocate amulets, talismans, prompting renewed interest in the Celtic symbols and sculptures.
