Review: Sorcerer's Screed - The Icelandic Book of Magic Spells
If you are interested in Nordic magic and witchcraft, you might want to check out Sorcerer's Screed, a book by the Icelandic poet and scholar Skuggi (Jochum Magnus Eggertsson). The book is a collection of 194 spells, each with a diagram and instructions, that Skuggi compiled from 80 old manuscripts over 30 years of research. The book was first published in 1940 in Icelandic, and has recently been translated into English for the first time by Lesstofan.
The spells in Sorcerer's Screed cover a wide range of purposes, from attracting love and wealth, to protecting against evil and enemies, to healing and cursing. Some of the spells are practical, such as how to find lost objects or catch fish, while others are more fantastical, such as how to raise the dead or become invisible. The book also includes spells that are specific to Icelandic culture and history, such as how to win a lawsuit or get a seat in parliament.
The book is not only a fascinating source of information on Nordic magic, but also a beautiful work of art. The diagrams and runes that accompany each spell have been graphically redrawn by the designer Arnar Fells Gunnarsson, who also created the book's layout. The book has a simple and elegant design, with black and white illustrations on cream-colored pages. The book also features an introduction by the publisher Ãorsteinn Surmeli, who provides some historical and cultural context for the spells.
Sorcerer's Screed is a must-have for anyone who loves magic, folklore, or Nordic culture. It is a rare and valuable treasure that reveals the secrets of an ancient and mysterious tradition. You can order the book online from Lesstofan's website or from Amazon.
If you are curious about the spells in Sorcerer's Screed, here are some examples of what you can find in the book:
To Make a Woman Love You: This spell requires a piece of linen that the woman has worn, a needle, and some blood from your left hand. You have to write a rune on the linen with your blood, then prick the woman's breast with the needle while she is sleeping, and say a charm.
To Walk on Water: This spell requires a special pair of shoes, a seal skin, and a rope. You have to cut out two pieces of seal skin and attach them to the soles of the shoes with the rope, then put them on and say a charm.
To Cause Fear: This spell requires a human skull and two candles. You have to place the skull on a table and put a candle in each eye socket, then light them and say a charm.
To Heal a Toothache: This spell requires a piece of cheese and a silver coin. You have to put the cheese in your mouth and chew it, then spit it out and wrap it around the coin. Then you have to bury it under an oak tree and say a charm.
As you can see, the spells in Sorcerer's Screed are not for the faint of heart or the squeamish. They reflect the harsh and dangerous realities of life in medieval Iceland, where people had to rely on magic to survive and cope with their problems. Some of the spells may seem cruel or unethical by modern standards, but they also show the ingenuity and creativity of the Nordic people. aa16f39245
