An '''incantation''' or '''enchantment''' was a charm or spell created using words. An incantation may take place during a [[ritual]], either a hymn or [[prayer]], and may invoke or praise a [[deity]]. In [[magic]], occultism, and [[witch]]craft it was used with the intention of casting a spell on an object or a person and may employ the use of pharmakeia. The term derives from Latin "incantare" (tr.), meaning "to chant (a magical spell) upon," from in- "into, upon" and cantare "to sing".

In medieval folklore and [[fairy tale]]s, enchantments were charms or spells. The term was loaned into English since around 1300 AD 1300. The corresponding native English term being "galdor" "song, spell". It has led to the terms "enchanter" and "enchantress", for those who use enchantments.
