A Possible Explanation for the Lack of Runic Inscriptions from Germania



For a long time now I have pondered the reasons for the smaller quantity of surviving runic artefacts from Germany and the German-speaking lands and the Netherlands compared to Scandinavia and even England and I believe that I have stumbled upon one possible explanation for this. As I was leafing through Friedrich Bernhard Marby's Marby-Runen-Bücherei I encountered the following interesting passage:


"So kamen in die Hände Karl's des Germanenmörders, über 4000 Bände germanischer Schriften. Nach dem Tode Karls wurden sämtliche Schriften auf Anraten römischer Priester von 'Ludwig dem Frommen', einem Nachfolger Karls, auf offenem Markte verbrannt und damit auf immer vernichtet."

"Thus into the hands of Karl the Teuton Murderer came over 4,000 volumes of Germanic writings. After the death of Karl, on the recommendation of the Roman priests of 'Ludwig the Pious', a successor of Karl, entire writings were burned in an open marketplace and with that destroyed for ever." (Wotans Krieger's translation)

Thus we have Karl the Butcher who was not only responsible for the murder of millions of Saxons but the destruction of our sacred groves, temples, God images and runic writings. The wars against the Saxons in the 8th century was truly a war of semitic xtianity against the Wotanist and Irminist religious paths of our ancestors and yet this does not stop the 55 Club from lauding him as a hero and affirming that they will "honour" him. (See The Great Yearning: An Armanen Ritual.) A real contradiction if ever there was one!

This widespread devastation of ancient Germanic spirituality was specific to Germania; Scandinavia having largely escaped this holocaust. The sacred writings which were not burned were buried away in the Vatican and the crypts of local churches.

"In der 'Sammlung'  älterer germanischer Schriften hat die römische Kirche nie halt gemacht. Unersetzliche Schätze an Runensteinen lagern heute noch in den unterirdischen Gängen und Kellern mancher Kirchen und Klöster und besonders in Vatikan. Die Sammeltätigkeit wurde später von den Juden, die ja auch aus diesem Grunde gerne 'Antiquare' waren, fortgesetzt. Zum Teil mussten sogar germanische Eingeweihte wichtiges Schriftgut (die Kabbala u. a.) in hebräische Schrift und Sprache umschreiben, um dieses wertvolle Gut vor Rom zu retten. Die hebräische Schrift und Sprache war ja nicht verboten!-So kam in Köln die germanische Kabbala in die unterirdische Bibliothek der  jüdischen Synagoge und tauchte später als 'Jüdische Kabbala' in Spanien und Nordafrika wieder auf. (Vergleiche die Schriften von Guido von List)"(Marby)

"The Roman church did not stop in the 'collection' of old Germanic writings. Untranslated writings on Rune stones lie still today in the underground passageways and cellars of many churches and cloisters and especially in the Vatican. The act of collecting was continued later by the Jews, who for this reason were gladly 'Antiquarians'. Even some of the important written materials of the Initiates (the Cabbala etc) had to be transliterated into the Hebrew script and language, in order to save this valuable material from Rome. The Hebrew script and language was indeed not forbidden!-Thus came the Germanic Cabbala into the underground library of the Jewish synagogue in Cologne and emerged again later as the 'Jewish Cabbala' in Spain and North Africa. (Compare the writings of Guido von List). (Wotans Krieger's translation)

The subject of the Cabbala and links to Armanist teaching deserves an article in its own right and this is something which I hope to address in a future article. The image at the head of this article is a drwaing of the German Thorsberg Chape.

Hail Wotans Krieger!

I have read your posts for years now, and your recent comment..

"The subject of the Cabbala and links to Armanist teaching deserves an article in its own right and this is something which I hope to address in a future article."

..is something I have been up to for a while now..

I don't want you to post this comment..I just couldn't find a way to contact you otherwise..

Following is a rough draft of Armanism and Kabbalah: The Tree of Life..I put it together, and I share it with you, for now let's keep it between us..it's no big secret..it's just not as finished as I would like it..

I have gotten mixed reactions when going on about this subject, but everything I have pointed out comes directly from the works of von List. I'm sure it will make some sense to you, and I look forward to hearing from you. I can be contacted at wodenswoodworks@gmail.com..

What is the authority of Friedrich Bernhard Marby? Does he have any sources?

Wotans Krieger said...

The theft of our ancient heathen Germanic literature along with the destruction of our sacred sites is a matter of public record, something which even the Roman church does not deny:Catholic Encyclopedia: Charlemagne, "Einhard tells us that he caused the ancient folksongs and hero-tales (barbara atque antiquissima carmina) to be collected; unfortunately this collection ceased to be appreciated and was lost at a later date."

It is something I had long suspected. The source seems to be Einhard's Vita Karoli Magni.
