Essays:

Aiming to provide a good understanding of Galdrastafir including their design, history and background these essays lay the groundwork for exploration.

Huld ms trans The Huld Manuscript - ÍB 383 4to.
A modern transcription, decryption and translation
by Justin Foster © 06/2015

$5:00, less discount*

The Icelandic manuscript called Huld, meaning secrecy, was made by Geir Vigfússon in 1860. It features a collection of runic alphabets in the first half and a small set of 30 "galdrastafir", magic symbols and sigils, in the second. This presentation focuses only on the second and aims to provide a more complete and accurate English translation of the Icelandic text and secret codes.

This is a translation of the 1903 treatise by Ólafur Daviðsson, written and published in the German annual journal: Zeitschrift des Vereins für Volkskunde under the title Isländische Zauberzeichen und Zauberbücher. This important work follows on from Jón Árnason’s Íslenzkar Þjóðsögur og Æfintýri, discussing this significant aspect of Icelandic culture most prominent in the 17th century.

Icelandic Magic Symbols The Icelandic Tradition of Magic
Analysis of a Late-Eighteenth Century Icelandic Galdrabók
by Christopher A. Smith © 18 Jan 2011

$5:00, less discount*

This essay is very similar in style and content to Christopher’s book Icelandic Magic (see below) but on a much smaller scale. It analyses only the one manuscript Lbs 2413 8vo but still comes to many of the same conclusions as is his book and still an excellent read.

A manuscript originally copied by hand on a small farm in Iceland, Strandir district in 1928 is an excellent example of the magic which survived ever since such manuscripts were presented in 17th century courts. This book full of magic, secret signs and alphabets is a photocopy of that manuscript.

The two manuscripts printed here were written around 1800, only 100 years after prosecutions for witchcraft ceased in Iceland. The first manuscript in the book, Lbs 2413 8vo, was written ca. 1800 and is the largest collection of magical staves in a single manuscript. The second manuscript in the book, Lbs 764 8vo, was written ca. 1820.

Note: There is one other book that I think is very relevent to Galdrastafir and
comes at a cheaper price. It is Norse Magical Herbal Healing by Ben Waggoner.


Manuscripts:

These manuscripts are for the most part freely available on the Internet, however they are provided only as single page by page images or PDFs, often faded or darkened due to age and having oversized backgrounds. The prices I charge are not for these images but rather the time and effort to crop and enhance the images and merge them into one PDF file...
