The herb know as rue has been associated with magic and protection since ancient Roman times, if not longer. This plant was later fashioned into a charm, which is known today as the cimaruta. Decades of research and investigation now bring forth the most thorough and complete work ever published on the Cimaruta charm.
Author and scholar Raven Grimassi shares the old lore of Italy along with his personal insights about about rue and the cimaruta charm. Mr. Grimassi includes an exploration of the cimaruta charm in both folk magic and witchcraft traditions. Each of the symbols appearing on the cimaruta are examined and their meanings revealed.
This modern work is sure to delight anyone interested in Old World lore, legend, and magic.
