polytheist extractions

Ps-Athanasius, Homily on the Virgin, 92, 95

“There are among us today those who practice abominations in city and village. For it is said that some of them ablute their children in polluted water and water from the arena, from the theater, and moreover they pour all over themselves water with incantations spoken over it, and they break their clay pots claiming it repels the evil eye. Some tie amulets on their children, hand-crafted by men—those men who provide a place for the dwelling of demons—while others anoint themselves with oil that is evil and incantations and such things that they tie on their heads and necks.” – Ps-Athanasius, Homily on the Virgin, 92, 95
