It's a thread about the curses
. (In this sense: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curse
Well, as you already know probably, my major is 'philosophy' (and 'philosophical anthropology', concretely). We had to learn and explore this matter too, because it's a part of the human culture and it's related to culturology, sociology, history, philosophy, religion, ethology, psychology, folklore studies, etc.
I don't want to talk about believing in curses. It's not about believe or not. It's just a matter for exploration, which may be very fruitful and we may learn a lot from it (if we can make the right conclusions). I feel sort of happy about this knowledge of mine.
I learned about it probably from 1989.
Here I'd like to start this thread with an interesting curse
I bet many of you never knew about this book curse
A book curse was the most widely employed and effective method of discouraging the thievery of manuscripts during the medieval period. The use of book curses dates back much further, to pre-Christian times, when the wrath of gods was invoked to protect books and scrolls.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_curse https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Text_of_Creative_Commons_Attribution-ShareAlike_3.0_Unported_License
