    Runes Reading the Past R I I thought this book was quite useful as an introduction to the exoteric side of runelore It seemed to me to be a basic overview of facts generally overlooked by the esoteric runologists in particular the Christian use of runes on crosses, graves, and the like.

    One thought on “Rudiments of Runelore

    1. Joel

      An excellent book dealing with runes in a linguistic (not New Age mystical bunk)sense. It presents several Runic alphabets, deals with the history of runes & inscriptions, and gives several poems concerning runes in Old English & Old Icelandic. My only beef with the book is its small size: it barely has 80 pages of material. Each chapter could be expanded into a book of its own.

    2. Devon

      An excellent resource on Germanic runes, including linguistic information, discussion of inscription, the rune poems, and the different runic systems. It is a very small book, easily read in a day or so, but it has a lot of good starting information, including a list of texts for further reading for the interested reader. I would have maybe liked to have seen more discussion of the different rune poem traditions, but I realize that might have made the book far weightier than the author intended. [...]

      A fine academic introduction to runes. For such a short book, it's chock full onf information on what is known about the ancient writing systems.

      Good introduction to the runes. I liked the rune poems and his description of the elder futhark.Some parts a little difficulty understanding; the science of runic interpretation can be thorny, even for an introduction. (get it, "thorny", for the thorn rune! haha)
