The amulet concept derives from amulētum, a Latin
word. An amulet is an element that a person treasures and that
he usually carries with him since he believes that it offers protection or good
For example: "This medal is my amulet: my grandmother gave it to me and
it always protects me", "Tomorrow I have to take an exam and I will
take the amulet that Jorge gave me", "Take this stone: it is an amulet
that will keep the evil of your life ”.
amulets work by superstition: the subject believes in their
power beyond what is indicated by reason, science or even religion. This power
that is attributed to the amulet is supernatural because it
exceeds the laws of nature.
The origins of the amulets are linked to the human history
itself. Prehistoric man treasured amulets in order to protect himself from all
kinds of evil. Those first amulets used to be wood, rocks or other natural
objects that had some physical peculiarity (their color, their shape, etc.).
Over the years, the amulets began to be objects that had been the
protagonists of a special event or that were given by certain people. A soldier
who finds a strange stone on the battlefield and returns home
safe and sound may consider the stone to be an amulet, to name one
possibility. A young man, on the other hand, may believe that a coin his late
grandfather gave him has the power of an amulet.
