EtymologyModificar

From Middle English magik from Old French magique, reborrowed from Latin magice, borrowed from Ancient Greek μαγική (magical) (τέχνη (art)), derived from μάγος (mage) from magos magus, sorcerer, of Iranian origin; akin to Old Persian Patrono:Xpeo (maguš), sorcerer). Displaced native Middle English dweomercraft "magic, magic arts" (from Old English dwimor "phantom, illusion" + cræft "art"), Old English galdorcræft "magic, enchantment", Old English drȳcræft "magic, sorcery".
