My wife originates from an area where concepts such as the Evil Eye are prevalent.
She defines the Evil Eye as, for example, when someone looks at something or someone with an evil or loathsome intention.
I can understand this concept and see some merit in it, though I'm not sure if it is real.
I cannot understand how anyone can believe that an inanimate object can have any power at all, even if it is inscribed with Holy text.
The text may have an influence upon us, to remind us. I carried a copy of the 23rd Psalm when I was a boy and derived comfort from it.
But, even if I were to meet an evil entity, if such a thing exists, I would feel considerably more safe defending my soul with my belief than some inanimate object.
