The curse is some sort of will, so that misfortune or adversity will affect someone else. This can take the shape of a pray, an imprecation, a whammy, etc.

Already used during the Antiquity, these curses were very much spread: they had however a somewhat more official and formal character. Drafted on writing tablets, they were placed in strategic places, and invoked spirits or devils. Thus, these famous tablets were disseminated in places such as cemeteries or close to sacred sites.

In addition to Greeks and Romans, Celts also have a long tradition of cursing, the aims of which were very specific and quite different from one another. Some of them were fertility curses, others bad luck curses...
