Remove affliction, also called remove curse, allowed the caster to remove most curses from objects or creatures. It could allow a creature to drop a magically cursed item, but would not remove a magically cursed weapon or piece of armor. The more powerful a caster became, the more types of curses could be removed by casting this spell.

The remove curse spell was also used to counter and dispel bestow curse.
