Regular price $445.00 Sale

Circular, just under ¾” diameter. The front with a five-point star enclosing a dot/circle figure representing the evil eye in combination with the pentagram.  The period of forced conversion to Christianity under Charlemangne’s 782 Capitulatio de partibus Saxoniae prescribed laws for Saxons which included being baptized. Failure to do so was punishable by death. “If any one of the race of the Saxons hereafter concealed among them shall have wished to hide himself unbaptized, and shall have scorned to come to baptism and shall have wished to remain a pagan, let him be punished by death”. This amulet perpetuates pagan beliefs and practices which were forced into secrecy and cast their practitioners, sorcerers, as evil and allied with the devil. Pierced with original suspension loop and surface with 24karat fold. On a modern gilt Sterling silver neck chain, gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
