Appearing at the beginning of our era, the runes were the writing of the ancient Germans before becoming that of the Scandinavians of the Viking and medieval periods. Several thousand runic inscriptions constitute testimonies of the various aspects of their civilization.

The etymology

The origin of the name “rune” remains uncertain. It is, however, generally related to names such as the gothic rūna, the old English rūn or the old Norse rún, all of which contain the idea of mystery and secrecy. However, a derivation of an Indo-European root meaning “digging”, in agreement with the fact that the runes were engraved, was also advanced.

Various texts, of different origins and dates, attribute a mythical origin to the runes, gifts of the gods. On the runic stone of Noleby (Västergötland, 6th century), the runes are called raginaku (n) do, “come from the gods”. The same formula is found on the stone of Sparlösa (Västergötland, around 800), and again in the Hávamál (str. 80), eddique poem perhaps composed in Iceland about 1200 in its present form. According to another section of the Hávamál (str 138 et seq.), The science of runes would have been acquired by Óðinn at the end of his autosacrifice on the cosmic tree Yggdrasill.

Questions about the historical origin of the runes-on what model were they invented, when, where, by whom, for what? – have undoubtedly been the most debated since the origins of the runology, without any unquestionable answers to them.

The earliest inscriptions are dated to the second half of the 2nd century (but some may be even older – the Meldorf fibula, dating from the first half of the first century, thus presents characters that could be runes). As they are encountered in a relatively large space, and show a mastery of this type of writing, it is generally accepted that the runes appeared at least a century earlier, that is to say towards the beginning of our era.

The majority of the oldest objects bearing runic inscriptions have been found in southern Scandinavia: Denmark, southern Norway, southern Sweden, which thus constitute, if not the cradle of runic script, at least the focus of Original broadcasting. But the question of the place where the runes have appeared is not separated from that of their model.

It is admitted that the runes were not created ex nihilo by the Germanic peoples. In particular, the quest for hypothetical pre-runic signs in rock engravings proved futile. On the other hand, identities of writing principles and similarities of characters between runes and various Mediterranean writing systems have led to the search for antecedents among them.

A Greek model was forbidden: the runes would then be born in the vicinity of the Black Sea, where the Goths would have come into contact with the Greek alphabet. This solution was abandoned, notably for chronological reasons, the Germans appearing only at the beginning of the third century in the region, at best at the same time as the oldest Scandinavian inscriptions. Another, more recent hypothesis sees as a model an archaic Greek alphabet several centuries before our era, but it runs up against the absence of such ancient inscriptions.
