Description

From the project website (accessed 2021-03-02):

The Virtual Magic Bowl Archive (VMBA') is a collaborative project involving scholars from Israel and the United Kingdom. The aim of the VMBA is to provide online resources for those engaged in the study of Aramaic incantation bowls from Sasanian Mesopotamia, perhaps the most important primary source we have for studying the everyday beliefs and practices of the Jewish, Christian, Mandaean, Manichaean, Zoroastrian and Pagan communities on the eve of the Islamic conquests.
