You are responsible for researching and finding an example of a ritual (religious activity) or object (item with religious significance) that could be described as both aprotropaic magic and from a syncretic background. In the paper you will describe the ritual or object, its cultural background, why you believe it is an example of aprotropaic magic, and describe its syncretic background. This will need to include a discussion, in your own words, of what syncretism is. This means you will be arguing for your ritual or object as an example both of aprotropaic magic and syncretism, given what we have learned, and you will be supporting your arguments using historical information and the definitions for aprotropaic magic and syncretism. Our discussions from Weeks 1-3 should be helpful in supporting your work.
