Overview

Considered the classic text book of anyone who would study runes or the Northern tradition.

Tales of Teutonic magic have thrilled the world for centuries. Now bringing together the dark stuff of sagas, Kveldulf Gundarsson reveals the personal magical path behind the legends and explains the practical techniques of the Northern tradition.

Gundarsson is a well known expert on the esoteric lore of the Teutonic people. This, his first book Teutonic Magic, brings a lifetime's worth of expertise to the subject. Blending historical lore with practical experience of esoteric skills, Gundarsson presents the reader with a spiritual path walked by the ancient and dark age Germans. He explains the magical writings of the Teutons, including the uses of each of the runestaves, the laws of magic in the Northern tradition, he provides the key to unleash the awesome might of the Northern magical tradition. This is not a dry academic book.

Gundarsson's writing flows like the sagas themselves, covering subjects such as Norse deities and rituals. It describes the structure of the spiritual realms in which the Norse magician would walk. It is no wonder that this book is considered the classic text book of anyone who would study runes or the Northern tradition.

    I recommend this to anyone looking to learn about the runes or further their understanding of Nordic Mythology.

    This book provides extensive detail about the Elder Futhark runes and the various beliefs and practices associated with them.

    Useful & Informative

    This book is filled with interesting things! Mainly its uses revolve around the runes but it also talks about the types of tools used in the magick of the ancient heathens. It also possesses some brief history of humans and that of the gods and goddesses. It explains the workings of wyrd and the ancient heathen concept of time. It also briefly explains the different parts of the soul in the ancient heathen concept. It goes over not just some of the magickal creatures of our inherited past but also over the holy creatures such as the boar, bear, raven, wolf, wyrm, and a few others.

    This book seems to be mainly for traditionalists and hardcore re-constructionists. Although some of its methods can be quite restrictive; the information within is quite valuable to anyone studying and practicing heathenry/asatru.
