An Egyptian Handbook of Ritual Power (as researchers call it) has been deciphered revealing a series of invocations and spells. It includes love spells, exorcisms and a cure for black jaundice (a potentially fatal infection). Written in Coptic (an Egyptian language) the 20 page illustrated codex dates back around 1,300 years. This image shows part of the text.

The Devil's Bible as it's been named is a medieval book believed by some to have supernatural powers .. because there's a painting of the devil in which is clearly a weak excuse although I'd love to look through it ... read out a few passages .. you know :p
