Description

In The Northern Path, Dag Rossman recounts Norse myths and the worldview underlying them, and also what he has learned from following The Northern Path himself for the past quarter-century. Learn how the worldview of your northern European ancestors can enrich your own life today.

Why is Douglas "Dag" Rossman uniquely qualified to tell these Nordic tales as few have done since the storytellers of the Viking Age spun their yarns for kings and commoners? Who could better understand the tales’ power and import in the lives of our ancestors than someone who tells them as the ancient storytellers did?

For the past quarter century, Dag Rossman has followed The Northern Path with:

The reflective mind of a scholar:
Rossman has a Ph.D. in zoology, and has studied and taught Norse mythology for twenty-five years. His collection of original stories, Theft of the Sun, and Other New Norse Myths (Skandisk, 2001), fills in gaps and ties up loose ends left by the fragments of Norse manuscripts that we’ve inherited. With his wife, Sharon, he co-designed and installed the largest museum exhibit on Norse mythology ever displayed in the United States (Echoes of Odin: Norse Mythology in Scandinavia and America, Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum, Decorah, IA, Sept. 2000 through Jan. 2001).

The wandering feet of an explorer:
Rossman has amplified his understanding of the ancient Norse world by six trips to Scandinavia, visiting ancient monuments and absorbing the spirit of the land and its people.

The heart and skills of a bard:
For twenty-five years, Rossman has told these tales to contemporary audiences young and old. By candlelight, moonlight, firelight, and torchlight, he’s watched these myths cast their spell over his listeners.

Honorius of Thebes
Ibis Press / Nicolas-Hayes

As the title testifies, students were sworn to secrecy before being given access to this magic text, and only a few manuscripts have survived. Bits of its teachings, such as the use of the magic whistle for summoning spirits, are alluded to in other texts. Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
