Description

The three parts of the book are separated fields and deal with different facets of the runes.
Part 1 gives, among other things, a fair summarizing historical overview, whereby corresponding finds and their possible interpretations are not left out.
Part 2 offers many passages in related mythology and the Norse sagas where runes occur, the corresponding quotes are included.
These two parts form an important foundation for the third part, which deals with the use of runes in modern magical-practical usage.
After decades of study of various western streams and schools of magic and a thorough study of the runes, the author has managed to combine both. The result is a unique modern rune magic, which is presented in the third part of the book.

About Gunivortus Goos

Goos, Gunivortus
Gunivortus Goos previously published quite a few books and articles under his meanwhile given-up pseudonym GardenStone. Born in the city of Groningen, he is a Dutch, who some decades ago left his hometown and country and moved to Germany, where he, after several stations, now lives in a small town in the beautiful Taunus Hills in the German state of Hesse. Guus' (that's how his friends call him) 'addiction' is the research of specific historical topics of his personal interest, within which he is always eagerly looking for primary sources and related views and experiences of scholarly or practicing people, which he also uses to develop his own opinions. In his writings his concern is not to only reproduce current views, but also to stimulate the reader to form his or her own opinion. For the same reason, where possible, he also includes controversial representations.
