Week 14 of My Rune Mini Course- Peorth

Hello Traveller,

The rune to consider this week is Peorth


Though there has been a great deal of speculation over the years, the traditional meaning of this rune has not been established.

It’s believed the reason for this is that the Christian translators changed some of the words in a verse defining Peorrth. Perhaps they were either to embarrassing or they expressed thoughts contrary to those of the church.

Since the meaning couldn’t be established, the rune became known as the mystery rune.

Depending on the question and the surrounding runes, Peorth indicates that the one being cast for isn’t supposed to know the complete answer.
