31309t0pgvl. sx322 bo1 204 203 200 20160802 17814 v44igw
Here we have a multifaceted study consisting of five essays or articles. The introductory piece is entitled “My Masonic (Mis-)Adventure” and details the author’s brief interaction with a local lodge, then follow two articles: “Roots of Masonry in the Scandinavian Gild System” and “Reflections of Germanic Mythic Tradition in Masonic Ritual.” These convincingly show the origins of the essence of Masonry not in the “Holy Land,” but in Northern Europe. Appended is a translation of Guido von List’s “Origin and Symbolism of Freemasonry” (1910). Finally there is a short piece entitled “A Charge to All Worthy Brothers” in which the author calls on individuals to help restore the original spirit and mission of Masonry.

31 9jacfmvl20161003 31146 cyuoc2
Originally published in 1986, based on the author’s 1984 dissertation, this volume has become the leading academic study of the topic of rune-magic. When originally released only 250 copies of this work were printed in a prohibitively expensive edition. This new revised and updated version allows more readers to discover the revolutionary contents of this book which presents a comprehensive history and theory of the concept of magic in connection with the ancient Germanic runes. It also catalogs, categorizes and analyzes the many magical formulas used by the most ancient rune-masters and shows how these formulas were utilized within the traditional Germanic cultural frame of reference. No matter what your level of interest is in the runes, this is the most in-depth text you will find.

Sigurdr: Rebirth and Rites of Transformation

51ldimdbhwl20161003 31146 1jr3tyt
This book in essence the MA thesis of Stephen E. Flowers, written in 1979. The text contains extensive discussions of the history of the scholarship about the idea of rebirth in ancient Norse sources, the doctrine of the soul, and the record of “reincarnation” in Norse as well as other Indo-European sources. The theories are applied to the data of the saga of Sigurdr, where we can see the ideas in action—the rites that must be undergone in order to effect this mysterious process known as “rebirth.” The contents of this book are essential to understanding the ancient concepts of the soul, rebirth and of personal transformation, or initiation.
