Abstract:The different terms for magic practices used by the Romanian peasants were preserved until late in the 20th century, determining the first folklorists to wonder on their specific meanings. Nonetheless, the reality named by these different words was unitary enough on the whole territory inhabited by Romanians and often emphasized the positive, therapeutic side of magic. Therefore, the main and most spread word for verbal magic in Romanian was descantec, which is analysed here from the point of view of its possible Latin roots, and its Romance and Germanic synonymes.
Key words:Romanian magic, European charms, Latin origin, folklore, bewichment, unwichment
Language: Romanian
