Runen – The Wisdom of the Runes by A.D. Mercer (author of the book Liber Coronzom)
What is presented here is without doubt, the most misunderstood, probably the most cynically abused set of runes in the history of runology. The Armanen runes have been ignored by scholars, abused by right wing extremists and largely forgotten by students of the occult. Nevertheless the Armanen runes are in many ways the quintessential esoteric rune row. Originally conceived of by the nineteenth century German mystic Guido von List, the Armanen runes offer us the most esoterically charged futharks ever encountered.
In order to fully understand the significance of the Armanen runes we must first examine their history in order to dispel some of the myths that have grown up around them. From this RUNEN then moves on to examine each rune in detail, before embarking on a detailed exploration of the relationship between the Runes and Yggdrasil, the Germanic and Nordic world tree. This is what makes Runen a unique text, as its the only text to directly link the two, exploring the importance of this connection, which cannot be overstated. Runen then concludes with an exposition of effective Armanen rune Magic, Numerology and Divination.
Runen also discusses the deeper significance of the Armanen runes with the intention of returning the runes to their rightful place at the zenith of true runic magic and not left in the hands of fanatics who have no idea of their true meaning as symbols of transformation granting access into the deeper unconscious and what may lie beyond.
