Runelore A Handbook Of Esoteric Runology

Runelore A Handbook Of Esoteric Runology Cover

Book: Runelore A Handbook Of Esoteric Runology by Edred Thorsson

A discussion of hidden lore, inner lore, rune worlds, runic numerology, runic psychology, runelore of the Gods, esoteric theology and more. Covers elder and Viking runes, and leads us to the contemporary runic revival.

This book is intended to supplement the practical material found in my Futhark: A Handbook of Rune Magic published by Samuel Weiser, Inc. In these pages the more intellectual aspects of the runes-their history aud development and their esoteric lore-will be investigated. It is hoped that through this work I can begin to dispel most of the miscouceptions fostered by recent books that purport to explore the runic tradition. Runelore incorporates into a system of living philosophy and practice the latest and best scieutific scholarship of runologists from allover the world. The method used in the present book is essentially one of intuition firmly based on hard scientific data. This is a method that I hope will continue to find wide acceptance. As it stands, Runelore is the basic textbook for members of the Rune-Gild, but I trust it will strike a responsive cord in all who seek to unravel the riddle of the runes.
