From the Author Edred Thorsson is the founder of the Rune Gild and one of the top experts on runes alive today. Part I Background Chapter 1 Early History The chief mission of the runes, in the view of many of the German rune magicians, is to help reawaken the vital essence that was lost in times past. The runes are the mysteries and the key to the mysteries at the same time. They have existed eternally within the folk-soul of the Germanics and await only their full awakening.
However, according to Friedrich Bernhard Marby the runes originated in the Mother-Land, which sank below the waves of the North Sea some 12, years ago. For Marby it was the rune Anglo-Frisian Futhorc that came closest to the original form of the rune-row, although he thought that the original system must have contained even more signs.
The esoteric German traditions concerning the history of Germanic religion and magic especially that of the runes are based very much on the idea that the ancient ways were taken underground into the structure, myth, and ritual of the medieval Christian Church. At first these concealments were quite intentional and conscious on the part of the Armanen.
But with time the keys to the hidden meanings of the original Armanic customs and practices were lost. However, the forms remained, and it is these forms that can now be unlocked with the knowledge provided by the runes and by the remanifestation of the Germanic folk-soul. Long before the runic spring of the early part of this century, there was an earlier flowering of an esoteric runic tradition. This was essentially the work of the much neglected Swedish scholar and mystic Johannes Bureus Bureus was one of the very first scholarly runologists.
He collected many runic texts from Swedish runestones and began to interpret them in a well-informed manner. He also had a mystical side. Bureus was a Paracelsist and Rosicrucian, well-versed in the lore of the Cabala and magical techniques of Agrippa von Nettesheim.
This was also the age of storgoticism --Great-Gothicism--the esoteric doctrine that the Goths wrongly assumed to the same as the Swedes were the once and future master-race. To Bureus the runes were the primeval script containing great mysteries that could be read from an initiated perspective. In recent years the Swedish scholar Thomas Karlsson has devoted two important studies to the work of Bureus. German rune magic was revived not in the tradition of Johannes Bureus but through a synthesis of the school of German Romanticism and the occult revival of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Throughout the s there was a growing interest in the ancient traditions of the North. In a way, this urge in the individual was reflected in the next highest organic unity--the nation, or folk.
Thus the folk began to turn inward and seek within their own traditions and lore for that which they had formerly looked in vain outside themselves. Christianity and the traditions of the south of Europe had been found wanting--the truth was to be found within--and northward.
Traditional knowledge, as preserved within the folk itself, was quite decayed by this time. Centuries of ignorance and lack of training had left what remained of the folk traditions rather empty. These men claimed to be the repositories of ancient initiatory family traditions, and if this were true they would be remarkable examples of how the ancient traditions were handed down along family lines.
The traditions of Wiligut have been well explored in the book The Secret King. It is more usual, however, for men such as Guido von List to claim extraordinary powers of insight and vision, which enabled them to reconstruct the past through a combination of clairvoyance insight and research into the folk ways and ancient customs. An essential component in this idea is that these men were looking into their own national past, and hence to a past which was organically linked to their present reality.
The late nineteenth century saw the coming of the occult revival to Germany. German-speaking central Europe Germany, Austria, Switzerland, etc. So the occult was certainly no stranger to the land when it bloomed forth in the late s and s, largely as an immediate by-product of the introduction of Theosophy to the region.

He is also most well known for his revivalism and use of the Armanen runes row. He was imprisoned during the Third Reich , which may have been due to a denunciation by Karl Maria Wiligut. Biography He was the first to develop and utilize the processes of Runic Gymnastics as a means of channeling Runic power and forms through and around the Self. Marby, along with Siegfried Adolf Kummer , were criticized by name in a report made to Heinrich Himmler by his chief esoteric runologist Karl Maria Wiligut. Goodrick-Clarke states that they were "censured by Wiligut in his capacity as Himmler's counsellor on magical and religious subjects for bringing the holy Aryan heritage into disrepute and riducule and this criticism may have led to Marby's harsh treatment in the Third Reich.
