    Noti Medievali. Графическая магия средних веков by: , Книга

    Новая книга Mylene Maelinhon и Liri Kavvira - Noti Medievali, рассказывает о средневековой графической магии, в частности, исландской рунике и авторской магической графике более позднего периода европейского Средневековья. В первой части книги дается авторское исследование и потоковая считка большинства интереснейших алфавитов Исландии - руны и литеры, найденные в старинных гримуарах, знахарские и шаманские лечебные руны для людей и животных, литеры и руника любовной магии и влияния на вероятности, гадательные руны, уникальные литеры свечной магии и другие ряды, взятые из первоисточника. Второй раздел книги посвящен исследованиям средневековой графики Европы, проведенным по гримуарам аббата Тритемия и другим древним рукописям. Литеры Карла Великого, алфавиты алхимиков и языческих жрецов, авторские алфавиты Средневековья и многое другое. Всё это подается исключительно в практическом аспекте: значения литер и рун, подробное описание их работы, побочные эффекты, работа с различными носителями и смесями графики, правильный оговор и активации. Во второй части книги собраны самые интересные авторские блоги, посвященные острым и спорным аспектам магической работы для новичков - разделению сфер магии, посвящению, работе с высшими силами, обучению магическому зрению и множество других остро-актуальных тем. Вся книга, по уже устоявшейся традиции, написана простым, понятным языком, с юмором и без пафосных речей. Noti Medievali - работа, уникальная в своем роде: расшифровка и адаптация этих древних алфавитов, предлагаемых ко вниманию читателей, предпринимается рунологами впервые. Тем не менее, мастерское изложение сложного, на первый взгляд, материала - верная предпосылка к тому, что Noti Medievali станет настольной книгой широкого круга практиков - как опытных, так и начинающих.
