Runelore, Handbook of Esoteric Runology by Edred Thorsson
The author of the best selling Futhark has done it again! Combining historical lore with esoteric investigation, Runelore dispels most of the misconceptions fostered by recent books that purport to explore the runic tradition. A rune is a magical word. It is a self-created viewpoint, and it cannot be communicated through profane or natural speech. It is a magical word that is whispered in our ear by the Odhinn within. Runes define patterns of existence and consciousness that are manifested in Divine consciousness and in the World Being. The language of he runes will appeal to both the occult and academic worlds because it combines folklore, linguistics, the history of religion and magic. Soft cover 221 pgs.
