In medieval literature, folklore, fairy tales and modern fantasy fiction, enchantments are charms or spells. The term was loaned into English since around 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.
The weakened sense "delight" is modern, first attested in 1593.
