Sorcery and Religion in Ancient Scandinavia Download » 102 Varg Vikernes  2 Download Download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free  Varg Vikernes Es an absorbing insight into the thoughts of this most notorious of musicians ‘Sorcery and Religion in Ancient Scandinavia’ makes fascinating reading and will be of interest not only to black metal and Burzum fans but also to those with an interest in Norse mythology or European history and social commentators. I bought this book to help support Varg Vikernes as I find some of his content amusing and useful and also I wanted to learn about his beliefs on the book s topic I discovered him and his work through YouTube What stood out to me in the prologue was that Varg has studied the traditions and beliefs of ancient Europeans for two decades and yet can only list two other books on the subject He has had to find answers from original texts fairy tales traditional songs and Norwegian folklore Still could it not have been possible to cite these sources Not many sources are cited in the text so it seems to be mostly based on Varg s opinions which you will have to cross reference with established facts to see if what he says is credible He claims that humans bury their dead so that they can come back one day we bury seeds and they return to us so perhaps that is the logic behind burial He also claims that the belief that an individual s life force can exist outside the individual had great significance to the ancient man He claims that Stone Age and Bronze Age societies were matriarchal in nature and the ueen was found from the winner of different races and contests including a beauty contest In Ancient Greece winners from the Olympic games were considered for kingship though the prospective king had to marry the ueen if he wanted to become king He claims that fairy tales are full of examples of competitions where the hero needs to show his skills Then after people found out that it is sexual intercourse that makes women pregnant and not contact with fertile nature society became a patriarchy and nobility was passed down and inherited by sons and daughters from fathers and mothers On runes he claims that the word rune translates as secret knowledge or just secret He claims that in the Stone Age and the Bronze Age the dead were buried sitting up instead of lying down as we do today He claims that in the Stone Age it was believed that the dead could be reborn by women who touched their remains This ties in with what he says in his videos where people can be reborn by examining the items of their forebears and remembering their supposed past life including certain passwords It got me thinking about the concept of the password and how I never realised just how ancient of a security measure it is I struggled to read this book because it is not sourced we can only rely on Varg s anecdotes which are opinions and may not be rooted in fact He might be wrong about what he is saying about sorcery and religion in ancient Scandinavia or he could be writing in a way to comunicate a hidden agenda There were black and white romantic illustrations of ancient Europeans on some of the pages in the book which I thought was a nice touch though it is not clear whether these illustrations draw on factual evidence of the appearance of ancient Europeans or not Towards the end of the book Varg implies his disdain for Judeo Christian culture by saying that fairy tales told in a Judeo Christian world contain the concepts of punishment and shame permeating the twisted and troubled mind of the Judeo Christian man

Sorcery and Religion in Ancient Scandinavia Download » 102 Varg Vikernes  2 Download Download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free  Varg Vikernes 'Sorcery and Religion in Ancient Scandinavia' is the latest book from Varg Vikernes one of the most controversial musicians of all time and the mastermind behind one of the most acclaimed black metal bands in the world – Burzum Convicted in 1994 of the murder of band mate Euronymous Vikernes has since spent 15yr. I picked this book up as it sounded interesting and I ve been a fan of Varg s music for uite some time that doesn t mean I m a fan a Varg himself though being a murderer racist and all It was all the surprising when Varg comes across in the book as intelligent although I found myself disagreeing with some of his ideas It felt like he locked himself into a single theory and refused to budge from this thus skewing his views and distorting his interpretations and when it comes to something like occultismmythology you can t really say that there is a single way to look at itThat said I still did find it interesting and enjoyable and would probably recommend it A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court enjoyable and would probably recommend it

Vikernes provides us with keys of interpretation for his translation here included of the Norse poem V lusp which is what most of this book is related to Unfortunately the poem itself does absolutely nothing for me and the read is uite boring with the exception of the very beginning which is entertaining perhaps for not dealing exactly with this poem but with life in the Stone Age Vikernes doesn t delve deeper into anything and for a reader like myself with no previous contact with Norse mythology it can get very confusing still much better than a simple translation of the poem without any comments which in this case would be totally unreadable atleast for me At the end Varg mentions vaguely some archeological finds to prove his theories and interpretations but in the end it s not too convincing and you must believe the man who is clearly obsessed with this mythos knows a thing or two and we should take his word for it and that s it Not recommended unless you re a diehard fan of his work and is very passionate about Norse mythology I don t think this book will attract followers to it

    PDF FREE [Sorcery and Religion in Ancient Scandinavia] The author's interpretation of Norse Mythology is interesting and differs radically from what has been traditionally accepted What he has to say about the mysterious Burial Mounds found all over northern Europe are particularly interesting Frustratingly enough though the best things he has to say about it and much than what is in this book is already available for free on his blog Unless you absolutely love
