Runes: Theory & Practice
Runes: Theory & Practice provides a thorough examination of the Norse runes. It will enable a beginner to delve effectively into their usage, but will also challenge the experienced rune-worker to better and deepen his or her understanding of these mysteries.
Runes: Theory & Practice begins with an explication of the story of Odin, the Norse god who won the runes by sacrificing himself on the World Tree. It continues by examining each of the individual runes in turn, both the Elder Futhark and the lesser-known Anglo-Saxon Futhorc. Each rune is studied not only from a historical viewpoint, but also from the perspective of a modern practitioner.
Most importantly, Runes: Theory & Practice specifically addresses the runes as living spirits and provides guidance on developing a working relationship with these otherworldly allies.
