The rise of Christianity suppressed the pre-Christian ancestral deities, but they arose again in the guise of the Christian saints, who took on the characters of Pagan deities - adopting special week days, rituals, and rulership over specific problems and occupations. This magico-religious system continues today, and the Reverend Ray Marlbrough guides the reader through a list of 74 saints and their attributes, and shows you how to evoke their powers for practical help through prayer, candle-burning and divination.
