This contribution describes the way in which amulets functioned in the medieval Latin West at the intersection of magic, medicine and religion and the way in which they were made. A Pantaleon amulet from the late fifteenth or early sixteenth century serves as an example. This amulet has been cut out of a Bible leaf and still shows the essential text of the Last Supper, from Luke 22.
