New menu added – runes

Today i added a new menu tab on the website , info about the runes .

The most well known and used part of our faith .

Used for almost anything , from movies and games to furniture and clothing .

They still mark alot of the landscape as of today and still remain a mystery for most modern people

In the coming days i will add the runes sets pages links in the text also , see this page as the intro and general information about the rune sets .

I tried to cover as mutch as possible on the subject as i can and know, but like you should know , the runes are not an easy subject at all . So these pages will get bigger and even more evolved then what its now to start with . But its a subject i get alot of questions and mails for so i wanted to add this as a starter . The study of the runes can keep you busy a lifetime and still feel like you know nothing .

By all means i am not stating that i am a rune master or expert . Just my humble opnion and views on the matter , i added links and sources where i could .

It goes from the beginning – where we got them from – to use and abuse troughout history .

I know that this is a controversial part – the abuse – but we got to be honest about it so people who would like to learn about the runes and there usage should know not all people used these like we do and tryd to give them another meaning . Its just a matter of time when you learn or search upon the runes you will encounter these darker meanings .

And like with anything on the website , if you should see an error or not agree with something . Send me a message on the well known mail .

I hope you enjoy the pages and the ride .

Work on the gods and goddess pages has started .

Since i have finisht about 95% of the Poetic en Prose Edda’s i can finally start the work on the pages for the gods and godesses . Why did i need to finish the edda’s first i hear you ask . Wel i wanted to be sure you can have a look at the ancient and sacred writings to verify what i posted on the deity’s . Where i can , i provide the chapter and line in the text with a link that opens in a new windows so you can compare without loosing your progress . So far i have finisht 3 deity’s , Aegir , Rán and Eir . More coming soon . I will add the link to the other deity’s later on . So you will see there name’s on the bottom but the link is not working yet . Have a nice day and may the gods watch over you and your kin .

Finaly some time to continue !!

After the last weeks beeing hell in work and personal life i managed to finish up some work .

I finisht up the following chapters in the Poetic Edda .

Only a few remaining to be done with the Poetic Edda . I hope they are handy for you seeking the texts . I added the links in the text themselfs so you dont have to look true hundreds of pages to find what you need . I also experimented with tagclouds , since i found that the normal pages do not get found by search engine’s , only the blog posts do ( told you i am a noob on webpage creation lol ) . Like always , if you find any errors or fuck ups from me , feel free to send me a message . Thank you for visiting and i hope the gods keep you and your kin safe from the virus .


Prose Edda finisht !!

Today i added the last missing pages of the prose edda ( i think and hope ) .

I tried to make a page for all the smaller saga’s that get reffered to also .

If everything works like i planned , you should now be able to find these sacred writings in the Prose edda section in the drop down menu or the page of the Prose edda .

I made it also that you can click the links that point to The Poetic Edda or the Heimskringla for faster reference . They should all open in a new tab . I hope this way i can help some of you to find the text you need without have to search 50 webpages that all have some fragments of it .

You will still find some words in the texts that are cursief and bold , those are for me to remind me that i need to look for more info on them . But most are hard to find but i wont give up lol.

If by any chance any of you could provide me with a complete and correct translation of the Hattatal you would have my deepest respect and gratitude .

If you should find some errors please let me know because the reason i made these pages are to help people to find the correct info they seek .

I hope you find these pages usefull and goodnight , i hope you and your kin are in good health and .

Added a few pages .

Today i added the pages :

  1. Hákonarmál – The lay of Hákon.
  2. Eiríksmál – The lay of Eric
  3. Skáldskaparmál – in the Prose Edda section

Also made a page for the goddess Eir . Eir is the goddess of protection, clemency , help and mercy .This page is the first of many about the gods and godesses and give’s some basic info , example prayers and info on how to do blot for Eir .

People are searching to coop with this corona virus and perhaps some people can find some comfort .

I hope you are all safe and may the gods watch and guard you and your loved ones .

Today i started with working on the pages of the Heimskringla . Will add all the chapters in the coming week .

Heimskringla (Icelandic pronunciation: ​[ˈheimsˌkʰriŋla]) is the best known of the Old Norse kings’ sagas. It was written in Old Norse in Iceland by the poet and historian Snorri Sturluson (1178/79–1241) c. 1230. The name Heimskringla was first used in the 17th century, derived from the first two words of one of the manuscripts (kringla heimsins, “the circle of the world”).

Heimskringla is a collection of sagas about Swedish and Norwegian kings, beginning with the saga of the legendary Swedish dynasty of the Ynglings, followed by accounts of historical Norwegian rulers from Harald Fairhair of the 9th century up to the death of the pretender Eystein Meyla in 1177. The exact sources of his work are disputed, but included earlier kings’ sagas, such as Morkinskinna, Fagrskinna and the twelfth century Norwegian synoptic histories and oral traditions, notably many skaldic poems. Snorri had himself visited Norway and Sweden. For events of the mid-12th century, Snorri explicitly names the now-lost work Hryggjarstykki as his source. The composition of the sagas is Snorri’s.

The first 2 chapters are already done and available .

  1. Ynglinga Saga
  2. Halfdan the Black Saga
