The present source book offers a survey of all types of runic inscriptions with religious or magical connotations from the earliest periods to the late Middle Ages, from Runes on weapons and jewellery to runic gravestones and Christian runic amulets. 

It is intended as a Scholarly answer against the common misconception of the supposedly dominant use of runes in magic. 

The present volume is structured in 15 units which enables its use as an aid to teaching without being excessivly comprehensive.
