In 1913, there was one quite original work that demanded the attention of the knowing in Germania. Working from the basis of the thoughts and revelations of Guido von List, Runenhäuser would take a giant step into the “practical” application of Runes. While, there had always been knowledge of the Runic implications in the half-timbered framework, no one had ever came close to the assertions that Philipp Stauff would present. Runenhäuser quickly became a standard; Guido von List, himself, plays a part in the book, Gorsleben and Bülow (The Edda Society) both spoke highly of it, his friend and an associate of Colonel Wiligut, Günther Kirchhoff, was another advocate and so on. Later, at Wewelsburg Castle, the SS would use Runenhäuser as a reference for the construction of Rune houses and it was also the key component that set the future SS Ahnenerbe Runic scholar, Karl Theodor Weigel, upon his path.
I briefly wrote about Runenhäuser here - now the 55 Club have proudly translated and republished Runenhäuser. This promises to be an excellent book and is ready for purchase from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. Not to be missed!
