Revival of the Runes: The Modern Rediscovery and Reinvention of the Germanic Runes

An in-depth history of runes and their various interpretations across five major historical periods. Ever wonder what the big deal is about these peculiar little symbols? Stephen E. Flowers reveals how their many-layered modern understanding came to be. Looking at the political, spiritual, and practical context, Flowers explores how different historical periods have used (or abused) runology in their own unique way. Specific attention is given to the Renaissance, Enlightenment, and Romantic periods, as well as the 20th century reemergence of rune study and its role in Germanic identity.
