In a dusty attic in central Norway, Mary Rustad came upon two ancient handwritten books of magic used by the common people--practical handbooks for daily concerns like stopping a toothache, retrieving stolen goods, and protecting livestock. Contains reproductions of the original, Old Norwegian pages facing the English translation.

Includes an account of a 17th-century Norwegian witch trial.



This volume consists of books of magic found in an attic in Norway, but containing practical information for addressing daily concerns. It contains the original pages written in Old Norwegian, photographically produced with the English translation on the facing page.


About the Author

Mary S. Rustad was born in Minnesota of Norwegian heritage. She lives on the farm in Norway where her great-grandfather once lived before immigrating to the United States. After living on the farm for 21 years, she has become familiar with some of her ancestors. These relatives, that she has never met, left letters and possessions behind to help her get to know them. Some years ago, she found the two Black Books in the attic. Putting this book together has helped her understand what kind of spiritual beliefs her ancestors had in the eighteenth century.
