"It is experienced if you ask the runes, the goddescended, created by the mightiest gods and drawn by the giantpoet!"
Havamal, Edda-Poem

In germanic mythology, the runes were given to the humans by Odin, the chief god and ruler of Asgard. He hung on the world tree Yggdrasil for 9 days and nights, hurt by his own spear. After all this pain he received the magical runes, who made the spoken word repeatable for eternal time. A real wonder for the ancient people! This divine origin explains the connection between the runes and the magical use. Each rune had a name, representing the sound of it´s pronunciation. Most names are reconstructable by the rune poems of the 8th century and by comparison  with the Gothic alphabet. The meaning is created by the translation of the rune´s name.
The roman author and historian Tacitus (56-117 AD) described, how the Germans tried to find answers on their questions by the help of the runes:

"Noone cares about oracels as much as they do. They cut a branch from a fruit bearing tree, dividing him in small parts. They draw signs on the pieces and throw them without plan, like the coincidence decides, on a white cloth. In case of a public questioning, the priest of the tribe - in private cases the housefather - raises his eyes to sky, draws three branch pieces and interprets them concerning the carved signs."

Still today, the 24 runes of the elder Futhark (alphabet) are the base of a rudimentary rune magic, beeing practised seriously.
The rune Teiwaz is equivalent to the letter "T", Teiwaz is the nordic name für the god of war Tyr. The rune of victory is directly assigned to Tyr, the heal power effects the hands.
