A Light from the North.
Vikings, runes, Norse religion, and Greek mythology-these are just some of the topics Christopher McIntosh weaves together in his fascinating exploration of the mystical concept of “the North.”
“The North” is simultaneously a location, a direction, and a mystical notion, and although the concept has ancient roots, it continues to resonate today. McIntosh leads readers through the magical and spiritual history of the North, as well as its modern manifestations. This mythic conception of a unique, powerful, and mysterious Northern civilization was known to the Greeks as Hyperboreanism, which he describes as among "the most influential of the new religions and quasi-religious movements that have sprung up in Russia since the fall of Communism.”
Christopher McIntosh is the author of many books in various esoteric traditions. He holds a DPhil in history from Oxford, a degree in German from London University, and a diploma in Russian from the United Nations Language School. Christopher has a long-standing interest in nature-oriented belief systems and in particular the Nordic Heathen movement. He lives in Lower Saxony, North Germany.
