The evil eye is a human look believed to cause harm to someone or something else. The supernatural harm may come in the form of anything from a minor misfortune to disease, injury or even death. The evil eye is well known throughout history.
It is mentioned in ancient Greek and Roman texts, as well as in many famous literary works, including the Bible. The evil eye is essentially a specific type of magical curse, and has its roots in magical thinking and superstition. Curses, including the evil eye, are an answer to the age-old question of why bad things happen to good people.
The association of special powers with the eyes is not hard to fathom: Eyes, it is said, are the gateway to a person’s soul. Shifting eyes are said to subtly betray liars, while a steady gaze may be endearing or menacing depending on the circumstances.
Actors use their eyes to convey a wide range of emotions, including love, hate, disgust, boredom, scorn, surprise, and envy. In fact it is this last emotion — jealousy — that underlies the evil eye’s cultural association with magic.
