The purpose of the following pages is to illustrate the Jewish element of the Aramaic Incantation Bowls by citing comparative material from Mishnaic and Amoraic sources. Some of this material illustrates the general climate of Jewish thought and practice about magic, while some illustrates specific statements made in the texts. I propose to show the influences of non-normative, as well as normative, Judaism on the AIB.
