Descirption: During the Christianization of Europe in the Middle Ages, many books of magic were lost as the ancient pagan traditions were suppressed. But in Iceland the recording of magical spells continued in secret for centuries, on a scale not seen elsewhere. Now housed in the National Library in Reykjavík, these surviving grimoires reveal a rich magical tradition that continued to evolve into the 20th century. Drawing directly from these books, Stephen Flowers presents a complete system of Icelandic magic from the 16th century onward.
