Armanen runes

17/04/2018

The Armanen futhark, which, contrary to popular belief, is not the current popular runic set, was devised by Guido Von List (1848 - 1919) extensive in the existing futhark but reduced the number of runes to 18, which he identified with the eighteen wishes that Odin formulates in the Hávámal.

Although it has not been determined exactly, linguistic studies have decreed that they were...

The origins of sigils are lost in the mists of time if we dare to identify even the marks our prehistoric ancestors carved on stone as sigils. However, it is more logical to identify it from the creation of writing, and therefore, the conscious manifestation of a concept through the abstraction that it supposes. Because, by definition, that is...

We have a quite biased view of Roman culture at a popular level, considering that their gods were greek copies, and that all their rituals and festivities also had that basis. However, the Romans had their own culture and religious specifications, and if there is one thing they were known for, it was being extremely superstitious. Superstitio,...

Salamanca, capital city of the province of the same name, in Spain, is known worldwide for its historical and cultural heritage. The façade of the University, for example, is well-known in the history of art, as well as being the third oldest university in Europe. But between monumental facades and Gothic cathedrals, a small tourist attraction that...
