Love Spells from Norwegian Grimoires: A Conversation with Eirik Storesund from the Brute Norse Podcast

February 15 | 7:00-8:00 pm CT

Location: Online on Zoom

Old Norse philologist Eirik Storesund, host and creator of the Brute Norse podcast, has translated a curated selection of charms, spells, and sorcerous recipes from Norwegian grimoires and vernacular tradition on the topic of love and romance. Learn about everything from Norwegian “black books” to bowl inscriptions as he discusses folk magic and shares some terrible ideas and (mostly) bad advice for your love life. Join us for a fascinating glimpse into the magically infused romantic liaisons of pre-industrial Scandinavia.

Eirik Storesund is a Norwegian scholar and artist based in the United States. He has a Master’s Degree in Old Norse and runs the podcast Brute Norse as well as the independent imprint Trollcat Press, where he celebrates the weirder aspects of Scandinavian cultural heritage.
