Ancient Ethiopian Transformation Magic

Ancient Ethiopian Transformation Magic

Magic was outlawed in Ethiopia in the 15th century. Presented here and stored in the British Library, is an ancient Ethiopian manuscript with prayers to perform magical transformations (such as turning into a lion or other creatures). Curator Eyob Derillo describes what is in the text and how historians study it to understand ancient African magic beliefs.

Just looking at the text, it appears to be beautifully illustrated. I wonder if you can get downloaded scans
