I found this website today: Norse Mythology, the Ultimate Online Resource for Norse Mythology and Religion.

This looks like a decent lore overview. Lots of links to sources, and interestingly, the webmaster is not Asatru or heathen.

 
Looks like a great site HB, will be spending some time there.
Really?  So, hey, want to go fishing?  I\'ve got a telescope, and it\'s going to be a dark night, so we should see the fish really well.
...what, I\'m not talking about fishing?  That\'s stargazing?  It\'s all doing-stuff, so it\'s the same thing, right?

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone on this post (I've been rather interested in Norse paganism and had a real hard time finding information). Anyways this was a major help =]

 
I just joined this site recently and I have to say that this is one of the best recommended reading lists for Asatru and Heathenry I've seen in a long time. Thank you! Looks like I'll be rocking some reading from my laptop thanks to those PDF's.

LOL I wish! No, I am not that well-read, alas. I do know people that HAVE read all of them, and I myself have read a substantial number as well.

Asatru isn't known as the religion with homework for no reason. ;) Share your recommended resources for all things Asatru and Heathen in this thread, and feel free to tell us a bit about them.

The original of this thread can be found on the previous version of The Cauldron. It is four pages of rock solid information, and I highly suggest you check it out. Click here.

 
Much to my surprise, neither this thread nor its predecessor on the archive board seem to include a link to the Sunnyway Runes, Alphabet of Mystery site (or to any other rune-specific site AFAICT, though Sunnyway is the best one I personally know of).

I'm not Heathen (just someone who appreciates accuracy of info) so it may have flaws I'm not knowledgeable enough to spot. But it does avoid the errors I do know enough to spot, which is more than I can say for a lot of rune sites.

I imagine that some of the other sites recommended in this thread have sections on the subject, but I note that queries about runelore in particular come up quite a bit; I find myself posting the Sunnyways link every few weeks (which is why I thought to check the resource sticky threads to see if it was absent).

Great though; thanks! I like that site too.

And I suspect part of the reason there aren't any / many specific rune sources here is because of the whole argument about the lack of historical evidence for runes as a divination tool. I think it's appropriate to include some as needed though, since as you said it's a common request!

Yup , I have noticed that you do, about 90 seconds before I get the chance too LOL.

I really like the site, and use it quite a bit.

Been reading through some of the site... From a recon, historical perspective I would take the wiki entries on runes over this site any day.

It is a poorly referenced mix of actual historical information - but selective and seldomly in a form which demonstrates the basic nuances and debates of the academic community - and modern notions and inventions of divination, runework and so on.
Now, if you actually plan to do modern runecasting or something like that I can understand how this site would be really good, but from a recon perspective I wouldn't even consider it good for beginners - there is simply to much vague, unnuanced and bad information mixed in there.

No hate on the site in terms of modern runic diviation, and no hate on modern runic magic in general (I can definitely understand how one could consider it a powerful method of divination), since the site and a lot of the resources it gives are pretty well tuned towards that.

Now that being said, if one wants to use the site there are some handy collections of material, and some of the articles are actually fairly okay - such as those on the "Poetic Edda" and the "Prose Edda" - but for information on runes I would hit a good book or wikipedia first.

Runic Magic


If you want a shorter, easier introduction to the runes go for this site. The original Norwegian version is better, but there is an English version which is fairly good.

http://www.arild-hauge.com/eindex.htm

It also contains more general historical information on the Viking Age.
If you want something easy and slightly well rounded I would suggest reading through arild-hauge.com and then reading the entries on "The Poetic Edda" and "The Prose Edda" on sunnyway...

Asatru isn't known as the religion with homework for no reason. ;) Share your recommended resources for all things Asatru and Heathen in this thread, and feel free to tell us a bit about them.


http://brepols.metapress.com requires payment for its articles, but at least one is worth it: "Into Viking Minds: Reinterpreting the Staffs of Sorcery and Unravelling Seidr," Leszek Gardela, talks about how odd little crooked sticks were used in magic, among other things.

http://jstor.org another website that often requires payment, "Behind Heathendom: Archaeological Studies of Old Norse Religion," Anders Andren, is a synthesis of what is known solely from digs.

Runes and Germanic Linguistics, H. Antonsen, discusses the origins of runes, magic words written on artefacts, and the general lack of evidence for their use in divination or that they had magical powers in and of themselves.

Thanks for this! I've been kind of looking for something of this nature. And luckily I have JSTOR access through grad school. ;)

Thanks for this!


Just remembered another thing from jstor: "The Norse Concept of Luck," Bettina Sejbjerg Sommer, explains this complex idea.

A couple more things I found on brepols yesterday: "How Uniform was Old Norse Religion?" Stefan Brink, discusses evidence for cult sites in Scandinavia, and provides a check on more speculative etymologies of earlier times.

"Remnants of Old Norse Heathendom in Popular Religion in Christian Times," Else Mundal, describes what of pagan beliefs survived into the Christian period and how they changed over time.
