Teutonic Magic:
A Guide to Germanic Divination, Lore and Magic
By Kveldulf Gundarsson


Kveldulf Gundarsson reveals the personal magical path behind the legends and explains the practical techniques of the northern tradition. 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, he presents the reader with a spiritual path walked by the ancient and dark age Germans. He explains the magical writings, including the uses of each of the rune staves, the laws of magic in the northern tradition. This is not a dry academic book. Gundarssons' 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.

The Rune Primer
By Sweyn Plowright


This book presents the academic knowledge of the Runes in plain English, shows how esoteric knowledge can be found in the old sources, and exposes the modern myths and misconceptions found in many popular rune books. There are now dozens of books on the market claiming to reveal the ancient knowledge of the Runes. Most of these books present superficial and often inaccurate information on runes, and mix it with practices and philosophies from various New Age, Wiccan, or Eastern sources. Often, they just make it up as they go along. To those interested in the integrity and sacredness of the Runes, this situation is quite deplorable. To those interested in beginning their exploration of the Runes, the situation is just confusing. Hopefully, this primer will give you just enough of a grounding to start your studies with confidence and discernment. The Primer focuses first on the academic and historical facts. It explains what we know and how we know it, in clear and concise language. This new expanded edition also contains new translations of the rune poems, a look at some popular authors, and a chapter on popular myths and misconceptions about the runes.

Exploring The Northern Tradition:
Guide To The Gods, Lore, Rites And Celebrations
From The Norse, German And Anglo-saxon Traditions
By Galina Krasskova


An overview of the modern reconstruction of the ancient religion of the Germanic and Scandinavian peoples. This religion, called Heathenry, is one of the fastest growing polytheistic religious movements in the United States today with over 40,000 adherents. This book provides a thorough guide to the cosmology, values, ethics, and rituals practiced by modern Heathens. Readers will have the opportunity to explore the sacred stories of the various Heathen Gods like Odin, Frigga, Freya, and Thor and will be granted a look into the devotional practices of modern votaries. The most common devotional rite: the faining or blot is examined in rich detail with examples given for personal use. Additionally, readers are introduced to the concept of wyrd or fate, so integral to the Heathen worldview. Unlike other books on Heathenry, Exploring the Northern Tradition is not denomination specific, nor does it seek to overwhelm the reader with unfamiliar Anglo-Saxon or Norse terminology. For those new to Heathenry, Pagans who wish to learn more about the Norse Deities, or those simply interested in learning about this unique religion, this book is the perfect introduction.

The Runic Tarot
By Caroline Smith, John Astrop


The mystery of the runes is as much a part of Celtic mythology as the passing of the seasons and the rhythm of the natural year. What's more, the relationship of the Sun, the Moon and the Earth, and the turning of the year, inspired the first divinatory systems used by people of ancient times. The highly distinctive Runic Tarot includes a major arcana of 24 runes in a zodiac wheel with traditional Norse significance. This is coupled with a minor arcana of four suits, each reflecting a season. The Runic Tarot will connect you with the seasonal imagery of the northern tribes, and will enrich and guide your life.

Northern Mysteries & Magick:
Runes, Gods, and Feminine Powers
(Book and CD)
By Freya Aswynn


Starting with a short piece on the northern tradition in perspective, it proceeds quickly into a detailed section on runes. For each rune it gives the Germanic, Anglo-Saxon and Old Norse names, the phonetic value and the traditional meaning as well as an illustration of the rune. There is a detailed analysis of the rune in terms of the culture of the time, it's derivation when known, other words it is associated with, and how it was related to specific Norse gods and myths. Following this section is a piece on runic divination including the nine worlds of Nordic mythology and how they relate to the conscious. This is followed by a very informative section on runic magic and traditional magic techniques and beliefs. Each of the traditional Scandinavian gods is presented with a detailed profile that includes their name in Norse, English, Dutch, and German, their primary element, secondary element, color, number, totem animals, personal sigils, magical items, the purpose for which they are typically invoked and the runes used for them. The book ends with a chapter on feminine mysteries that includes a short piece on the practice of Seith (mostly the casting spells and enchantments), an examination of Odin and how he related to the feminine mysteries, and detailed profiles of the feminine gods such as Frigga and Freyja.

Nordic Runes:
Understanding, Casting, and Interpreting the Ancient Viking Oracle
By Paul Rhys Mountfort


A comprehensive and practical guide to the ancient oracle based on the runic alphabet of the Norse. Nordic Runes addresses three major areas: Runelore, the history of this 2000-year-old Norse oracle; Runestaves, the meaning of the individual runes of the Elder Futhark alphabet and their powerful mythological, magical, and practical lessons for daily life; and Runecasting, a comprehensive guide to the oracular application of the ancient runes, including their crafting, divination, and self-development. As Nordic Runes shows, the runes do more than simply reflect the path of fate; they help develop and enhance intuition. By learning to cast and interpret the runes, the user becomes receptive to the energy currents in material reality and empowered in the arts of its transformation.

Elves, Wights, and Trolls:
Studies Towards the Practice of Germanic Heathenry: Vol. I
(Studies Towards the Practice of Germanic Heathenry)
By Kveldulf Gundarsson


Elves, Trolls, and Wights is the most complete study yet made of the various beings with whom the Vikings shared their world, from the smallest spirits of stones and plants to the great giants who strive against or aid the Norse gods. Elves, dwarves, giants, wights dwelling in rocks, streams, and oceans: these beings have been friends, foes, and even lovers of humans, and often worked more closely with farming and fishing folk on a daily basis than did the gods themselves. In this book, Kveldulf Gundarsson, long-famed scholar of Old Norse religion and Heathen leader, looks closely at the history and folklore of these beings and offers a practical guide for dealing with them. Elves, Trolls, and Wights also includes Kveldulf's new translation of the little-known Icelandic skaldic poem "Berg-Dweller's Song", in which the giant Hallmundr tells of his own folk and world-faring.

Hammer of the Gods:
Anglo-Saxon Paganism in Modern Times
By Swain Wodening


Using scholarship and personal spiritual experiences, Swain Wodening explores modern Anglo-Saxon Heathenry, a religion closely related to Asatru. With practical information on Wyrd, Heathen virtues, dieties, Hammer of the Gods strives to revive the spirit of Anglo-Saxon Heathenry. Additonional topics covered include the Anglo-Saxon runes and seidr, as well as rites for births, namings, marriages, funerals, land takings, and worshipping the Gods. Because of the scarcity of information about the ancient religion of the ancestors of the English people, this book also draws heavily on the mythology and religious lore of the related Scandinavian tribes, which was better preserved. It is therefore suited for practioners of Asatru as well.

Germanic Heathenry: A Practical Guide

This is a wonderfully detailed study of Germanic Heathenry, presented from a Germano-centric perspective, but quite relevant to more 'general' Germanic/Northern European practices overall. The author presents the information in an easy-to-follow and descriptive layout, while employing a real balance of necessary terminologies, using the good old familiar forms, as well as introducing more German-specific terms and names- (as it states on the back cover) 'from common renderings to Modern High German to Old High German, allowing for the greatest freedom in practice and form'.. and, it might be added, a clear understanding from any perspective- be it that of the novice or those well-versed in Heathenry. A great book for anyone seeking to learn the root and practices of authentic Germanic Heathenry.

The Real Middle Earth:
Exploring the Magic and Mystery of the Middle Ages, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the Lord of the Rings
By Brian Bates


J.R.R. Tolkien claimed that he based the land of Middle Earth on a real place. The Real Middle Earth brings alive, for the first time, the very real civilization in which those who lived had a vision of life animated by beings beyond the material world. Magic was real to them and they believed their universe was held together by an interlaced web of golden threads visible only to wizards. At its center was Middle Earth, a place peopled by humans, but imbued with spiritual power. It was a real realm that stretched from Old England to Scandinavia and across to western Europe, encompassing Celts, Anglo Saxons and Vikings. Looking first at the rich and varied tribes who made up the populace of this mystical land, Bates looks at how the people lived their daily lives in a world of magic and mystery. Using archaeological, historical, and psychological research, Brian Bates breathes life into this civilization of two thousand years ago.

Nordic Gods and Heroes
By Padraic Colum


This book introduces one to the Gods of Norse mythology, and tells the stories of the land of the Giants, Gods, Dwarves, and Men. Colum, using simple language and timeless storytelling, does a superiour job with this. There are four parts to this book, each part containing 8 to 12 stories about the Gods. Throughout the book, various Gods keep appearing, and each lives up to their persona. For instance, Loki, who is the god of mischief and cunning, appears throughout the book as outsmarting other Gods and attempting to fix the problems he has caused. Colum adequately bridges the gap between modern readers and the ancient mythology of the Nordic cultures adroitly. Without a doubt, this is the singularly most useful and thorough introduction to Nordic mythology.

The Eye of Odin
By James Richard Larson


The Eye Of Odin by James Richard Larson is an impressively powerful story based upon historical events and figures drawn from the age of Viking exploration and expansion into Europe. In this saga we follow the journey of a Viking chieftain, his family and associates, and of their perilous journey that will ultimately change the world. Unsympathetically portraying the brutality of Viking raids, but also looking toward still greater evils still that menace humanity as a whole (and the few who dared to challenge them), The Eye Of Odin weaves a memorably written and ultimately satisfying tale laced with conflict, a struggle for survival, and the violence which flared between the Pagan and the Christian. Highly recommended reading and the first of a projected three volume series.

The Cassell's Dictionary of Norse Myth and Legend
By Andy Orchard


The Scandanavian imagination inspires our culture in hundreds of ways, from our words for days and months to customs common in most of our holidays to popular phenomena such as Harry Potter and the Tolkien legends. The entire cast of gods and trolls, heroes and monsters, lands and beliefs, receives a comprehensive survey in more than 1,000 entries, photos, charts, and quotations. Many entries draw upon recent archaeological discoveries which shed new light on ancient rituals and peoples, in many cases providing evidence that the even the most fanciful tales turn out to contain a core of factual history.

Well of Remembrance:
Rediscovering the Earth Wisdom Myths of Northern Europe
By Ralph Metzner


Of all the Norse reading I have done, this was my favorite. Ralph Metzner examines Norse mythology through a very matricentric set of lenses, deconstructing some of the dominance-model material that has found its way into Norse "tradition". He reclaims the Vanic tradition without dishonoring the Aesir. He focuses on the shamanic aspects of Odin and deconstructs a great deal of misogynistic material surrounding Freyja. He separates the Norse heritage from the Nazi mythos and gives us a humane and empowering way to reclaim the Nordic traditions.

The Aspects of Anglo-Saxon Magic
By Bill Griffiths


Magic is something special, something unauthorized; an alternative perhaps; even a deliberate cultivation of dark, evil powers. But for the Anglo-Saxon age, the neat division between mainstream and occult, rational and superstitious, Christian and pagan is not always easy to discern. To maintain its authority (or its monopoly?) the Church drew a formal line and outlawed a range of dubious practices (like divination, spells, folk healing) while at the same time conducting very similar rituals itself, and may even have adapted legends of elves to serve in a Christian explanation of disease as a battle between good and evil, between Church and demons; in other cases powerful ancestors came to serve as saints. In pursuit of a better understanding of Anglo-Saxon magic, a wide range of topics and texts are examined in this book, challenging (constructively, it is hoped) our stereotyped images of the past and its beliefs. Texts are printed in their original language (e.g. Old English, Icelandic, Latin) with New English translations. Contents include:- twenty charms; the English, Icelandic and Norwegian rune poems; texts on dreams, weather signs, unlucky days, the solar system; and much more.

The Mead-Hall:
The Feasting Tradition in Anglo-Saxon England
By Stephen Pollington


This new study looks at the subject of halls and feasting in Anglo-Saxon England. The idea of the communal meal was very important in the period among nobles and yeomen, churchmen and laity, warriors and farmers. One of the main aims of the book is to show that there was not just one 'feast' but two main types: the informal social occasion gebeorscipe and the formal, ritual gathering symbel. Using the evidence of Old English texts - mainly the epic Beowulf and the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles, Stephen Pollington shows that the idea of feasting remained central to Anglo-Saxon social traditions long after the physical reality had declined in importance. The words of the poets and saga-writers are supported by a wealth of archaeological data dealing with halls, settlement layouts and magnificent feasting gear found in many early Anglo-Saxon graves. Three appendices cover hall-themes in Old English verse; OE and translated texts; and the structure and origin's of the warband.

The Poetic Edda
By Lee M. Hollander


"...the translation may indeed be regarded as the crowning achievement of a great scholar." --Scandinavian-American Bulletin The Poetic Edda comprises a treasure trove of mythic and spiritual verse holding an important place in Nordic culture, literature, and heritage. Its tales of strife and death form a repository, in poetic form, of Norse mythology and heroic lore, embodying both the ethical views and the cultural life of the North during the late heathen and early Christian times. Collected by an unidentified Icelander, probably during the twelfth or thirteenth century, The Poetic Edda was rediscovered in Iceland in the seventeenth century by Danish scholars. Even then its value as poetry, as a source of historical information, and as a collection of entertaining stories was recognized. This meticulous translation succeeds in reproducing the verse patterns, the rhythm, the mood, and the dignity of the original in a revision that Scandinavian Studies says "may well grace anyone's bookshelf."

The Edda
By Snorri Sturluson


There are two chief sources for the Norse myths, the Elder (Poetic) Edda and the Younger (Prose) Edda. This is a translation of the Prose Edda and includes the creation of the earth from the remains of the giant Ymir, the death of Baldr, the twilight of the gods (Ragnarök), and certain stories of Sigurd and Brynhild (Siegfried and Brunnhilde in Wagner's operas). Most translations include only the parts that are "of interest to the general reader", but this one is complete, so you can make your own judgment about which parts to read and which to skip. Definitely for those with more than a passing interest in Norse mythology.

The Vril Society
By Theo Paijmans


After more than two decades of painstaking research, this book unveils the darkest innermost secrets and history of a secret Nazi occult order. The veil surrounding this most secret and legendary was impenetrable until now, and the reality is even stranger than the wildest dreams or blackest nightmares. The Vril Society counted among their minions the black adepts Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler. More than any other secret society or occult order, the Vril Society influenced the history of the world. The godmen of the Vril Society sought to rule a world where enslaved subhumans would toil beneath the purple flames of the black sun and serve the arcane purposes of a master race. From the stupendous Atlantis technologies to the most secret occult rituals, theirs was the universe to conquer and subjugate.

Unholy Alliance:
History of the Nazi Involvement With the Occult
By Peter Levenda


Engagingly written, this is a comprehensive but popular history of the occult background and roots of the Nazi movement, showing how the ideas of a vast international network of late 19th- and early 20th century occult groups influenced Nazi ideology, from Madame Blavatsky and Aleister Crowley to the Thule Gesellschaft, the Order of the Golden Dawn, the Order of the Eastern Temple, and the pseudoscientific expeditions to Iceland and Tibet of the Ancestral Heritage Research and Teaching Society. Nazi appropriation of the occult was a strange mixture of astrology, freemasonry, racism rooted in occultism, and popular European folklore. It also traces the Nazi movements as they continued their activities after the war or "morphed" into neo-Nazi, skinhead, and satanic groups, such as the Christian Identity and White Aryan Resistance movements.

The Occult Roots of Nazism:
Secret Aryan Cults and Their Influence on Nazi Ideology
By Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke


Nearly half a century after the defeat of the Third Reich, Nazism remains a subject of historical inquiry, general interest and, alarmingly, a source of inspiration for resurgent facism in Europe. This book traces the intellectual roots of Nazism back to a number of influential occult and millenarian sects in the Hapsburg Empire during its waning years. These sects combined notions of popular nationalism with an advocacy of "Aryan" racism and a proclaimed need for German world-rule.

Gods of the Blood:
The Pagan Revival and White Separatism
By Mattias Gardell


A historian of religion draws on interviews with white supremacist leaders to provide a startling and revealing view of many of these groups and their religious motivations. He contends that the increasing multiculturalism in the United States has led these groups to seek a racial purity that can be found only in pagan cultures. The author shows that pagan Nordic culture provides white supremacists with a model of legendary times in which the Aryan race was uncontaminated by the evils of modern global society. Thus, groups such as Wodan's Kindred, the Odinist Fellowship and the Church of Jesus Christ, Christian/Aryan Nations, see themselves as heroes whose task is to restore the lost purity of this bygone era. The author moves on to various forms of Odinism and Satanism (darkside Asatru, in which Loki the trickster god is perceived to be the shadow side of Odin the Allfather, in Jungian terms). Here, certain famous individuals such as Michael Moynihan and Steven Flowers (a.k.a. Edred Thorsson) who have both helped translate various works on paganism, runic mythology, magic, German rune magicians, and Julius Evola are discussed. Finally, the political extremism of the White Order of Thule is discussed in relationship to the neoNazi National Alliance. The book includes discussion of some of the pagan, Odinist, Asatru, and other groups and alliances which make up the modern day revival of Norse and panEuropean pagan beliefs.

Hanussen:
Hitler's Jewish Clairvoyant
By Mel Gordon


Erik Jan Hanussen made a name for himself as Europe's most audacious and controversial soothsayer. Billing himself as "The Man Who Knows All," he performed in cabarets and music halls, attracting the attention of everyone from Sigmund Freud and Thomas Mann to Marlene Dietrich and Peter Lorre. His exceptional paranormal abilities — along with his stage specialty of hypnotizing women to orgasm — garnered ardent admirers and equally ardent denouncements, religious and otherwise. In March 1932, when Adolf Hitler's political future seemed doomed, Hanussen predicted a resurgence of the Nazi Party. The prediction proved a psychic salve for Hitler, and Hanussen became an influential confidant of the superstitious fuhrer. But what Hitler didn't know initially was that Hanussen was not the Dane he claimed to be but a Jew from Moravia whose given name was Herschel Steinschneider.
