Der Geistiger Ahnenerbe


In 1933 publiceerde Herman Wirth een Duitstalige versie - met discussie en illustraties - van het Oera Linda-boek. Op 1 juli 1935 werd Forschungsgemeinschaft Deutsches Ahnenerbe opgericht door Himmler, Wirth en Darré. Het OLB staat in Duitsland nog immer bekend als Himmlers Bibel.

Ahnen (znw) = voorouders
Ahne ,, = voormoeder
Ahn ,, = voorvader
(etwas) ahnen (ww) =  (iets) voorvoelen, voorzien, vermoeden
Ahnung (znw) = voorgevoel, vermoeden, besef

Erbe (znw) = erfenis, erfgoed, erfdeel, erfgenaam


"Wirth was trouwens een van de oprichters van Ahnenerbe en moet er één der invloedrijke leden van zijn geweest, vermits hem meteen de sektie Studie van voorhistorisch schrift en symbolen werd toevertrouwd. [...] In 1938 brak hij met Ahnenerbe, wel onder de dubbele druk van de vakhistorici, die hem voor een dilettant hielden, en van de nazi-ideologen die hem hoogst kwalijk namen dat hij niet ophield te proklameren dat elke Führerkultus historisch gezien een vervalverschijnsel is..." (fragment uit: Herman Wirth en de Indo-Europese Voorgeschiedenis door Marc Eemans)



Herman Wirth (1885-1981), author of "Die Ura Linda Chronik" (1933)
and one of the founders of "Deutsches Ahnenerbe" (1935)

Die Ura Linda Chronik

Die Ura Linda-Chronik, das älteste Zeugnis germanischer Geschichte, wurde vor 60 Jahre in Holland aufgefunden. Die zunächst bezweifelte Echtheit wird nun von Herman Wirth überzeugend nachgewiesen. Das Werk berichtet von Kriegszügen und Entdeckungsfahrten, von Not- und Glückszeiten unserer Vorfahren zurück bis 2193 v. Chr., von heiligen Gesetzen unserer Ahnen, staatlichen Einrichtungen, Sitten und Gebräuchen. Die Ura Linda-Chronik vermittelt damit ein eindrucksvolles Bild stolzer Kulturhöhe unserer Vorfahren und gibt dem deutschen Volke sein geistiges Ahnenerbe wieder, in einer Zeit, die reif wurde für solche Offenbarung.

Lindenlied



Walther von der Vogelweide
sog. Lindenlied (ca. 1200)


I

‘Under der linden
an der heide,
dâ unser zweier bette was,
dâ mugent ir vinden
schône beide
gebrochen bluomen unde gras.
vor dem walde in einem tal,
tandaradei,
schône sanc diu nahtegal.

II

Ich kam gegangen
zuo der ouwe:
dô was mîn friedel komen ê.
dâ wart ich enpfangen,
hêre frouwe!
daz ich bin sælic iemer mê.
kust er mich? wol tûsentstunt:
tandaradei,
seht wie rôt mir ist der munt.

III

Dô het er gemachet

und ein kleinez vogellîn:
tandaradei,
daz mac wol getriuwe sin.’

THJUDEMÀM (Διοτίμα, Diotima)

Diets + Duits (volk, taal) : THJUD / THJVD / THJUT / TJVT (asf.) : duiden, deuten / duidelijk, deutlich

"Diets is een overkoepelende term waarmee de Middelnederlandse regio-talen worden aangeduid die (gesproken), geschreven en gedrukt werden tussen circa 1200 en circa 1550. [...]
Diets stamt af van het Middelnederlandse woord diet, dat volk betekent. Het is verwant met het Gotische woord thiuda en het Oudengelse woord Þéod met dezelfde betekenis."
wiki/Diets

M. Philippa e.a. (2003-2009) Etymologisch Woordenboek van het Nederlands

duiden ww. ‘uitleggen, vertalen; betekenen’
Mnl. *duden ‘betekenen’ [ca. 1200; CG II, Servas],
dieden ‘betekenen’ [1285; CG II, Rijmb.],
duden ‘uitleggen’ [1375-1400; MNW-R];
vnnl. ten archsten duyden ‘het ergste doen betekenen, in slechtste zin uitleggen’ [1587; WNT trots I],
duyden ‘uitleggen, vertalen’ [1595; WNT rechtzinnig].

Het woord wordt vaak in verband gebracht met pgm. *þeuðō- ‘volk’, zie → diets,
en zou dan letterlijk moeten betekenen ‘voor het volk verklaren, vertalen, duidelijk maken’.

Semantisch gezien kan het echter geen afleiding van dat woord zijn.  
{{de beide woorden kunnen echter wel op andere wijze aan elkaar gerelateerd zijn ~ Oth.}}

Daarom is vermoedelijk een ander woord secundair op *þeuðō- betrokken;
dat zou het bn. *þeuþa- ‘goed’ kunnen zijn (waaruit mnl. ge-diede ‘voorkomend, welwillend’).

Het werkwoord zal dan ‘goed, begrijpelijk maken’ betekenen. Zie ook → beduiden, → duidelijk.
Mnd. düden; ohd. diuten ‘verklaren, betekenen, vertalen’ (nhd. deuten);
ofri. bi-thiuda ‘verklaren’ (nfri. tsjutte);
oe. ge-ðiodan ‘vertalen’;
on. þýða ‘uitleggen, betekenen’ (nzw. tyda ‘duiden’);
< pgm. *þeuþjan- ‘begrijpelijk maken’, bij pgm. *þeuþa- ‘goed’ (EWgP 621-23).

Bij pgm. *þeuþa- ook os. githiudo ‘gepast’ en mnd. dieden ‘helpen’;
oe. geþiede ‘goed, deugdzaam’ en geþiedan ‘deelnemen; helpen’;
on. þýðr ‘vriendelijk’; got. þiuþ ‘goed’.

De homonymie met vormen die horen bij pgm. *þeuðō- ‘volk’ maakt de verdere etymologie moeilijk.

Misschien is er verband met pie. *teu- ‘vriendelijk bezien’ (IEW 1079-80).

Stavo

Posted 14 November 2012 - 08:21 AM
 
In Frisian mythology, 'Stavoren' is mentioned as the oldest and most important city of 'Friesland'.
It would have been named after the god or idol Stavo. (OLB fragments below.)

In Belgium there is a city Stavelot (German name: Stablo; Walon: Ståvleu).

In the North-French Pas-de-Calais area there is a city Étaples (In Dutch a.k.a. Stapel).
Portus Staliocanus from Ptolomeus' Geographica II-8? (Suggested by J. Vandemaele.)

In Greek Stavros (Σταύρος) means pole or cross. It is a common name for people and places.
(I can imagine the link between a tree or carved pole/ trunk and and the name for an idol.)

Stable and staple are related words.

~

Once one accepts that Friesland/ Frisia from the myths does not equal the current Dutch province Friesland,
that remains of old-Stavoren will not be found in nowaday Stavoren (same for Medemblik etc.),
and that the Gyganten (giants), the dragon and mermaid may have been metaphors (or added to entertain the audience),
the mythology offers many possible new views and starts to make much more sense.

It is understandable why they were rejected as merely fiction between the 18th and 20th century.
A revision will answer many questions.

RUN-script Reconstruction + F

Reconstruction of words in RUN-script OLB (from page 46).





The "run"-script has always been considered as typical 19th century, but this is not at all evident.

Specially the F is not like any Dutch handwriting I have ever seen.
It actually looks more like a Greek Phi.

For some letters it is obvious that they look like the Greek version, for example, K, U and T.

But if you have a better look at the L, you can see how it may have evolved (through the 'run'-version) into the Greek Lambda.




So:

Jol-F => run-F => Greek F
Jol-L => run-L => Greek L

This trick does not apply  for all letters, but that it does for some of them is, at least, remarkable.

===

Edit: after I posted I noticed that the Greek L is a mirrored version of the L that I made, based on the run-L (which is like the traditional capital L).

View PostAbramelin, on 13 November 2012 - 01:29 PM, said:
Because of the crease in the paper, part of the letter -F- is hidden, but you can still see something extra:

 How do you interpret that dot?
Do you believe it is part of the letter?
How would you reconstruct the letter?




View PostAbramelin, on 13 November 2012 - 08:07 PM, said:
I think the dot is what remains of a little line connected to the main figure (letter).

Can you make a drawing of what you think it should be?


 Abramelin:
I know it looks like sh1t, but either the one copying the MS had some problems with his quill, or this is how the letter should look.

Otharus:
The whole point about the RUN-script is that one can write fast and keep the pen on the paper as much as possible, so the ink can flow gently without making a mess. You will know if you have ever written with a dip-pen.

So I think your first guess is the right one, as this makes most sense IMO:

Korte betekenis: overhandigen
1. Overhandigen, (terug)geven. In de eerste aanh. meer bep.: betalen.

There is something strange about the first line of page 1.
Why have I never noticed before?


The copyist made an effort to write neatly, the letters are more clear than on many later pages and also the two letters.
But the title "THET BOK THÉRA A.DEL.A.FOLSTAR" is not centered.
It is as if he started in the middle, not knowing what the title was going to be, or not realising that there would not be enough space on one line, when starting in the middle.

You'd think that someone copying an existing text would know how much space he would need to write the lines down on new paper.

The title may not have been part of the original text.

It does indeed look like "FOLSTAR" was initially omitted, and then added later.

Yes it looks like it was written with a different pen or ink; the letters are thicker.
It is strange because "THET BOK THÉRA A.DEL.A" is no good Fryan; it would have been something like "THET BOK FON A.DEL.A". 
 Here is my explanation.

Just like Jan Ottema would add a title ("ADELA"), when he published his transcription and translation in 1872 on his page 1, Hidde Oera Linda may have wanted to add a title to the copy he made in 1256.

His initial idea may have been THET BOK ÁDELA.S (The Book of Adela or Adela's Book).

After having penned down the first two words (the title would have been nicely centred), he gets a better idea.

He remembers having read a title somewhere in the book, something like THET BOK THÉRA ADELA.S HELPAR.

But before writing down the last word, he gets doubts and decides to check it first.

He can't easily find it and decides to just start copying, because sooner or later he will get to the point where he read it.

Then finally... on page 91, there it is!

But FOLLISTAR does not fit and is a bit old-fashioned, so he uses an alternative: FOLSTAR.

He adds it in the space that he had left open, and since his pen is a bit worn out, the letters become a bit thicker than the other ones on page 1, that had been written with a brand new pen.

Quote
However, if someone started adding titles to the chapters at some point in time, then how accurate were these family members at copying their chronicle?  What more has been added or deleted or changed (..to make it look less old fashioned...??)

I have always said that any copyist may have added, adapted and censored things. That is what copyists and translators tend to do.

Quote
Btw, Otharus mentioned the word HELPAR (THET BOK THÉRA ADELA.S HELPAR) or in English, 'helper'.

The usual translation for FOLSTAR or FOLLISTAR is 'follower', but it actually does mean 'helper'

Ottema (1872) and Jensma (2006) translated "helpers". Sandbach (1876) chose "followers".

I think it is just a variety of FOLGSTER, from FOLGJA (to follow).
From follower to helper (in meaning) is a small step anyway.
Besides, OLB indeed has the word HELPAR too.

"Follower" is simply closer to the original word.

Bataven, kent uw spraak en heel haar overvloed! ~ Bilderdijk (1756-1831)

The tribal name, probably a derivation from batawjō ("good island", from Germanic bat- "good, excellent" and awjō "island, land near water")... (wiki/Batavi)

I am not so sure about the island part, but I would agree on BAT (Dutch: baat, bate).

Baat/ bate in Middelnederlands dictionary (oldest sources 13th century):
- benefit, advantage, profit, use, value, purpose (voordeel, nut)
- pleasure, satisfaction, gratification, approval (genoegen, plezier)
- help, assistance, aid (hulp, bijstand)
- cure, remedy (geneesmiddel, remedie)

The main problem is: there were no rabbits here, back then.

Socrates on language in Cratylus by Plato:

Her. What do you say of pur (fire) and udor (water)?
Soc. I am at a loss how to explain pur; either the muse of Euthyphro has deserted me, or there is some very great difficulty in the word. Please, however, to note the contrivance which I adopt whenever I am in a difficulty of this sort.
Her. What is it?
Soc. I will tell you; but I should like to know first whether you can tell me what is the meaning of the pur?
Her. Indeed I cannot.
Soc. Shall I tell you what I suspect to be the true explanation of this and several other words?- My belief is that they are of foreign origin. For the Hellenes, especially those who were under the dominion of the barbarians, often borrowed from them.
Her. What is the inference?
Soc. Why, you know that any one who seeks to demonstrate the fitness of these names according to the Hellenic language, and not according to the language from which the words are derived, is rather likely to be at fault.
Her. Yes, certainly.
Soc. Well then, consider whether this pur is not foreign; for the word is not easily brought into relation with the Hellenic tongue, and the Phrygians may be observed to have the same word slightly changed, just as they have udor (water) and kunes (dogs), and many other words.
Her. That is true.

I think I have the answer to Socrates' question...

The Timaeus makes conjectures on the composition of the four elements which some ancient Greeks thought constituted the physical universe: earth, water, air, and fire. Timaeus links each of these elements to a certain Platonic solid: the element of earth would be a cube, of air an octahedron, of water an icosahedron, and of fire a tetrahedron.

Note how, in the OLB language, fire seems to have been derived from four.

Variety in spelling and diction between the letters of Hidde (1256 CE) and Liko (803 CE) Over de Linden.


First attempt in trying to figure out the pronunciation of vowels in OLB.
At second thought I think the sound here is more like Dutch "ruzie" en "juni".
For vowel chart with audio, go here: http://en.wikipedia....hart_with_audio
 THV will probably be like the German "du" and the English "you".

This is an example of 'Fryan' being sometimes less similar to Dutch (je, jij) or Frisian (do), than to other NW-European languages.

OK, you convinced me that the CF were no rabbit or hare hunters.

VG pointed out that CAN* can be related to channel (Dutch: kanaal, gracht, sloot).

The low lands were swampy and in order to make the land dry, channels were dug out, which was also very helpful for transportation.
The Netherlands are well known for their waterworks.

Combined with the French verb "faire" (to do, make), I can imagine a word like CAN..FAT.. meaning something channel-diggers.

An peculiar activity of the area.

As for the KANINA-skins in the JON story (plm. 1600 BCE); this may refer to polecats, weasels, hares, or ...?
The article does not say there were no hares, just that not much was found of them.

Since even in Roman times there seems to have been confusion about dogs and rabbits, because of the similar terms (agreeably having to do with the ability to go in holes), the name may not have been used for rabbits alone in JON's time. The furs of all those rodents tend to be soft.

If the Cananefates dug their own channels, the Romans would not have needed to dig their own

I don't agree.

The Romans will have needed channels to supply their armies and other strategic purposes, while the CF may have made ones primarily to have dry land to live and farm on.

Quote
We are talking about channels, not ditches, and about the land of the Cananefates, not the whole of the Netherlands.

1. Who says smaller channels and ditches would not have been known as CAN* (whatever old term that evolved into our "kanaal")?

2. If the CF made many ditches and were named after that activity, that does not impy that they were the only ones making ditches, or that they only made ditches.

People can be named "Van Dijk" without living near a dike, while others can live there, without having that name.

O.S. elleban, O.Fris. andlova, Du. elf, O.H.G. einlif, Ger. elf, O.N. ellifu, Goth. ainlif), a compound of *ain "one" (see one) + PIE *leikw- "leave, remain" (cf. Gk. leipein "to leave behind;" see relinquish).

Great, Abe.
Silly me, to forget about E-leven ("leven" in Dutch is life or to live), when 2-LIF is twelve.

And now we can reconstruct what 11 might have been spelled in Fryan: ENLIF or ÉNLIF (in modern Dutch: elf).

So Over de Linden may have descended from an ancient lineage of paper-makers.
Possibly giving them a key role in creating and keeping written records of all types.

And making plausible the idea that this family would be inclined to pass along written keepsakes between generations.

Abramelin:
It might be, yes. Up to a couple of years ago there still was an Over de Linden printing house in Enkhuizen.
Well, I got inspired by Otharus 'Liber', and then things started rolling, lol.
I really never thought of lime bark/bast as a source for paper, but linden/lime trees must have been quite abundant in the ancient Low Lands before we started cutting them all down.
Otharus:
Neither did I.
Valuable finds, Abe.
Wonderful how we inspire each other here.

OK, suppose Delahaye will be proven right, and that Dutch historical events and places between around 200 and 1000 CE were actually  events and place in Belgium and Northern France, then you please tell me how that would prove the OLB narrative which was first put onto paper in the 6th century BCE. a story that ended somewhere in the first decade BCE.

It would put the so called Frisian 'fantastic' historiography (Van Scharle and others) in a different light, which would put the OLB in a different light.

Can you give one example of how that would change the way we now view the works of many Frisian historiographers?

Good question.
Yes, I think I can give several examples.
Because this is a very important issue, I will take some time to collect the exact references.

Engelen hangen ook in de lucht.
Romains/Greeks pronounced it quite well: Angelus/Angelos: Hangel-Is.

As not unusually, OLB made me a suggestion to an etymology, more plausible than all existing ones.

Tho sprag sancta Maria zo themo eingele so geheren.
nu woldik thaz the apostoli hir waren.
That se min plégen. ande min ende gesâgen.
Toen sprak de heilige Maria tot de zo voortreffelijke engel:
"Nu zou ik willen dat de apostelen hier waren,
opdat ze mij verzorgen en mijn levenseinde aanschouwen.".

do you mean you sea also a meaning in Eng-elen as the 'only ones' (a bit like the choosen ones?, not the whole lot but the particular, enige-n, the ap-pointed ones)

Yes, something like that.

Quote
'eng' also meaning 'nauw' -> like in being/having be-nauwd when you feel narrowed/enclosed/fixed?

I noticed that (in OLB) ENG / ÉNG in the meaning of "enig" (only) is consequently spelled with N+G (separate letters), while ENG in the meaning of "nauw" (narrow) is spelled with the special NG (single) letter.

OK, I see it on Vandemaele's map

Before the Kelts, Gauls and Romans became a serious threat, this will have been a more strategic area.
The northern Netherlands were also inhabited at (old) times, but mostly by farmers it seems.
In France and Belgium many (royal?) burial mounds were found from the iron age.
With the Romans and later the Franks moving ever more north, specially the (cultural) elite will have fled to what is now the northern NL (and possibly to Scandinavia, Scotland and Russia?).

As for the chronicle by Okko van Scharl:
It was edited and re-issued by Johannes Vlytarp, and again in 1742 by Andreas van Staveren (printed by Abraham Ferwerda in Ljouwert).
For van Staveren and Ferwerda it was business, just like Hollywood movies today.
They will have wanted to please (wealthy) crowds and they will have avoided to offend the church.
Van Staveren, Vlytarp, Van Skarl and their predecessors will all have edited parts.
They may have interpreted and moved certain stories north (consciously or not).
One has to take everything with a pinch of salt, but that does not mean that all is merely worthless fantasy.

After having read Wilkens' book on Troy, it became perfectly clear to me how the Troy story ended up in Greece, creating much confusion.
Similar things may have happened here.
