About this book

The secret of the runes are said to have “revealed themselves” to von List, uncovering a complete cosmology and esoteric understanding of the primeval Teutonic/Aryan peoples, and becoming the cornerstone of his ideology. No other book so clearly and simply sets forth the full spectrum of von List’s vision of a mystical philosophy based on Germanic principles.

In The secret of the Runes, Guido von List describes the Armanen Futhark. The Armanen Futhark has 18 runes, instead of the 16 runes the younger Futhark has. These 18 runes correspond with the 18 verses about runes in the Hávamál, which is at the core of The secret of the runes. This book can be seen as the modern starting point for runology.
