Description

The book gives an insight into a thousand-year old treasury of our ancestors’ knowledge about the use of plants for medicinal and ritual purposes, always linked with beliefs about the supernatural world, which allowed humans to channel their spiritual, social and material perception of the world and the individual in it. By highlighting different usages of plants, the author presents this rich cultural heritage, the wisdom of our ancestors and their industriousness, their perception of the world and natural occurrences, developed from a deep understanding and intimate connection with the natural environment.
