Elder Futhark - Denmark Variety

There are quite literally some thousand of the Elder Futhark which exist. This alphabet is from Zealand, Denmark and dates from around 900 CE.

In general, the Elder Futhark is probably the best known and used alphabet within contemporary Paganism. Historially, there are quite literally several thousand variations on this alphabet, with the one represented below being just one of those variations. Although the order of occurring letters is fixed, the actual number of letters is not. It is also interesting to note that in 1639 AD, in Iceland, a law was passed which forbade the use of the futhark on pain of death - specifically written as punishment by death by burning.

Etruscan

The Etruscan alphabet, known also as the North Italic alphabet, was primarily used from 700 to 200 BC. The Etruscan culture reached its golden age around 500 BC, and began its gradual decline around 400 BC. The primary cause of this cultural decline is attributed to the Gaulic invasions and Roman conquests of that period. The Etruscan language is not classified with other Indo-European languages or any other recognizable linguistic family. However, the structure of the alphabet appears to be similar to the anicent Greek alphabet which was utilized by the Dorios of Sicily. It is believed by some that this alphabet was actually the product of the Phoenician alphabet, but this remains unproven. The Etruscan people traded extensively and carried the use of their alphabet northward, toward the Baltic, along amber trade routes. Thus, the Etruscan alphabet also helped to give birth to such other alphabets as the Elder Futhark.

Gothic

The story of this alphabet is a little odd. The Goths had an alphabet which was later modified by Bishop Ulfilas during the fourth century. Ulfilas combined th Gothic alphabet with that of the Greek alphabet written in cursive lettering to create a script which could be used to write with. The result was the alphabet which would become the Gothic alphabet itself. Although there were many books written using this alphabet, many were destroyed by order of the Council of Toldeo in 1018 because they felt that the alphabet was Pagan and thus should be destroyed - even though the alphabet itself was devised by a bishop.

Linear A

Cypriot syllabry. The values of xa, xe, and zo are not entirely certain. Ga is only used at certain sites. This alphabet is from Cyprus. It is one of the earlier alphabets and is derived partially from cuneiform. Linear A was primary used for record keeping. It was the first alphabet to be used within Europe.

Theban

The Theban alphabet is probably one of the most widely recognized alphabet besides the Elder Futhark within Paganism. It is often incorrectly called the "Witches' Runes." This alphabet emerged during the medieval period when Cabbalistic studies were prominate in the practices of European magicians. The other name for the alphabet is the Runes of Honorius.
