It was used with negative connotations to apply to rites. They were regarded as fraudulent, unconventional, and dangerous. The concept was incorporated into Christian theology during the first century CE. Magic became associated with demons and thus defined against religion. It wasn't until the 19th century when it was adopted in various academic disciplines and used it in reference to many things. One example was it was used to describe beliefs in "hidden sympathies" between objects that allow one to influence the other.
