2023-02-15 – Love Spells from Norwegian Grimoires: A Conversation with Eirik Storesund from the Brute Norse Podcast (Online)
Wednesday, February 15 (7:00-8:00 pm CT)
This is an online class hosted on Zoom.
Old Norse philologist Eirik Storesund, host and creator of the Brute Norse podcast, has translated a curated selection of charms, spells, and sorcerous recipes from Norwegian grimoires and vernacular tradition on the topic of love and romance. Learn about everything from Norwegian "black books" to bowl inscriptions as he discusses folk magic and shares some terrible ideas and (mostly) bad advice for your love life. Join us for a fascinating glimpse into the magically infused romantic liaisons of pre-industrial Scandinavia.
Copies of Love Spells and Erotic Sorcery in Norwegian Folk Magic translated by Eirik Storesund are available for purchase from Vesterheim Museum Store! Click here for more information.
