To the Ancient Egyptian, magic permeated almost every aspect of life, with many natural phenomenon being attributed to supernatural influences. Whether deity or demon, the belief in liminal entities as the cause of a number of illnesses logically led to the use of equally mystical treatments. As such, physicians came equipped with an arsenal of medical and magical remedies, a collection of powerful objects and an assortment of incantations. This presentation explores the relationship between magic and medicine when treating ancient ailments, as detailed from the surviving medical papyri.
