Dear followers and readers, sorry for my apparent absence over the last weeks and months. I know I haven’t posted much but I have a good reason. I am currently working on my own book, my own translation of Hávamál, a kind of analysis and study guide to help people understand the Hávamál better. I started this two years ago and now it is gradually taking shape. I have decided to do this in my own language first, because the old texts are not often available in Dutch and the studies on this are almost non-existent. With this I hope to help people who do not really speak several languages like our own language, so many interesting texts remain hidden from them. And since the website here now contains almost most of the texts referenced in the Eddas, I have decided to focus a little more on writing my book. Now I have already worked out a few pages that more or less have their almost final form. That is why I decided to translate it into English anyway, because most people worldwide can read this, while the number of Dutch-speaking people in the world is much smaller. So slowly I will translate the pages that are almost finished for you so that you can also give your opinion and that it might help others. Whether these pages will ever actually come to a printed book, only the higher powers know. But until the time that day comes, I still wanted to place it here. I will gradually add pages. Due to the massive volume of text I will probably also use a translation program every now and then to save time. If some text looks really strange, know that it is probably the translation software. Hopefully you can do something with this. Of course I need not say that nothing from these texts may be copied or posted anywhere without my written permission, Greetings Dave.
I will make a permanent tab on the menu page later, but for now I will just post the link here.
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 .
