What Is A Warlock

What Is A Warlock Cover Warlock is also often associated with a male witch. However it is important to note the 2 distinct meanings of the word, because using this label is not accurate from a Saxon perspective.

Warlock comes from two root words and has 3 meanings:

* The Anglo-saxon meaning, ‘oath-breaker’ is the most common use of the word. The label has fallen from use and is often seen as a derogatory title.

* The Old Norse word ‘vardlokkur’ which has been translated to warlock. There are debates about the exact translation of the word in it’s original form. Additionally there are debates about it’s meaning. However there are several mythological tales about the Vardlokkur guarding the gates of knowledge. In these legends, the Vardlokkur were the wise men of divine knowledge who protected that wisdom and guarded it with their lives. The magik of the vardlokkur was/is to ward off evil spirits and to lock or bind them up, keeping the sacred wisdom safe. Some also call the vardlokkur the Norse Guards or Guardians. The warriors of the spiritual community. In this context a Norse practioner might use the world warlock to represent their personal path and preference of this label.

* In the Scots dialect the word warlock, means a ‘cunning man’ or ‘male white witch’, it is rarely used today, if at all.

Witch Christina:

I started my own site darkbooks.org which I decided to share with other people my most favorite books on magic and occultism. My personal collection of books contains several thousands books, 1300+ of them located on this site (I am constantly adding new ones). These are the best books on magic and esotericism, which I have and I read. They are all in pdf format. Please note, on my site you can download and order on CD only PUBLIC DOMAIN versions of books, although in my home collection is copyrighted books. But for a site I found for each copyrighted book it PUBLIC DOMAIN version, if it were possible. If I did not find PUBLIC DOMAIN version, then, unfortunately, the site contains only a description of the book. I would be very grateful to all those who help me to find PUBLIC DOMAIN versions of books for those books that I could not find, or for any good books on magic, which I do not have. All books can be downloaded free of charge, if you want to get them on CD you can order the entire collection of books on CD for a nominal fee. This site is a non-profit venture. Revenue from CD is only used to help cover costs.

In addition, my site has many videos and articles on witchcraft, black magic, occultism, voodoo magic, esoterica, paganism. I hope it will be useful to anyone interested in magic and witchcraft, and wants to know more about them, beginners and professional wizards and witches. Read articles, download magic books, watch videos, learn the secrets of magic and remember, keep an open mind, just because something has not been revealed to you yet does not mean that your wishes and dreams aren’t just moments away. Your beliefs and perseverance are the key to your life’ successes – I’m very optimistic that it can help you achieve all of your goals, and overcome all of your obstacles.

Good luck and I hope you enjoy my site!
