During the era wherein Norse and Celtic runes have been originally carved into wooden blocks, those that exist today have been inscribed on numerous other objects such as swords, rings, coins, and even stone surfaces, all of which were utilized for passing messages. These messages do not only showcase a direct translation of what you want to say, but embedded between these lines are values and beliefs that are passed on through generations.
They have existed for a long time, back in the early Medieval Period, like a supernatural alphabet used by the Norse gods to have contact with them.
What was the meaning behind these Runes?
The runic alphabet was used by the Greeks of northern Europe in the pre-Christian era, which survived throughout the 13th century, when the Inquisition sought to stamp them out as a sign of witchcraft and magic. These alphabets were created, but why? For what purposes did they serve, and how were they considered to be magical?
The Norse and Celtic runes were not designed to be used in literary or intellectual endeavors; they were created as emblems to honor warriors and honor the gods.The notion that these symbols were used to send messages weren’t really the ideal usage of such. This runic alphabet has evolved into magical runes that acted as an oracle for the Norse gods.
In the poem “Hávamál”, which is written in the Poignant Chronicles of Norse mythology around 800 AD, the verse is attributed to say: “It is certain that the Runes / and those who were created by the High Powers / and which was done by Odin, who applied them: / will always give truthful answers."
Despite being banned, the symbols remained within the hidden and occult areas of society, and are still used for rituals and to predict the future.
