The Oera Linda Book
"Mountains raise your crown
clouds and streams weep
Yes, schoonland blushes
slave peoples step on thy cloth
The Oera Linda Book was found in Holland in 1867 by Cornelis Over den Linden. He
inherited the book from his father and took it to an archivaris for translation
It was written in an old language and therefore hard to read. The book was eventually
translated but a controversy arose that was caused by the fact that the translater had
sought explanation for certain parts of the text within the limited borders of a small
part of holland. Only in 1941 came the publication from J.F. Overwijn. This publication
is the base of the script that I`m presenting here. Overwijn regarded the text in a
much wider context then his predecessor, viz. that of europe and was not afraid to
accept what the text was claiming to be: a hystoricalaccount of the descendants of
Atlantis. 10 years later a second edition was published with new information and
corrections that the writer had come upon in his research. Anyone with an open mind
will find that he or she is dealing with unique hystorical accounts,and will wonder
why he or she has never heard about the book before. Undoubtly there will be reasons
for that but one practical reason is that there is simply not much information available
on the book. One has to accidently run into it. When I visited the library for a copy
of Overwijn`s book from 1951,it had to be found in the basement. It was therfore a
strange experience holding the book in my hand. At this moment I`m in contact with
several people who are busy with the book. One of them is writing a book about the
book and two others have plans for a documentary (february 2004)
The book itself is divided in chapters that are written by different writers, at
different periods.For example, there is the `book of Adela`s follower` or `the Book
of Beden` or `from the writings of`Frethoric and Wiljo`. Untill now I have found
six stories in the book that have enough interesting elements and continuïty to
be presented as a script for a long motion picture film.
Noot: According to information in the original text the last part of Atland or
Aldland sunk in 2193 BC.
1:181 after Atland: The coming of the Magyars and the history of Godis, Tunis en Inka.
2:563 after Atland: The war between Kälta and Minerva and how Athens was founded.
3:1602 after Atland: The Magy comes to steal the lamp. How the denmarks were lost.
4:1888 after Atland:A nature disaster comes over the land. About the evil time.
5:Continued:`from the diary of Ljudgeert: About Alexander, Friso and his sun Adal.
6:Four Kings after Friso:From the writings of Beden: About `Black Adel` Asega Askar.
On the next two pages is a synopsis of the first of these five stories.The text is
more or less literally taken from the book in order to maintain and present the
authenticity of the book. However, I did have to translate from the original Dutch.

Such is the history:
101 year after Atland had sunk, a people came from the east: the Magyars.Their highest
priest and King is The Magy. We call them the Finen.
They mean that everything is full of bad spirits that dwell in men and animal, but of
Wr.alda`s spirit they know nothing. They praised our language and morals. 181 years
after Aldland had sunk(80 years later) they came unexpected during the Jolfeast.
Forces were gathered and three poles from Godaburgh they were held back. Kaat was
boroughwoman there. She was proud and haughty and therefore did not call for aid.
But when the burghlords learned about it, they sent messengers to the mother on Techel,
Mina. She had call for all the seamen and all other young men from East-Vliedland
and from the Denmarks. From these journeys the hystory of Godis has come forth, that
has been written on the walls of the burghs and that is described here:At the
Aldegamouth lived an old seaking, Sterik. He had three sons: Godis, Tunis and Inka.
Godis was the eldest and lived at the Eemsmouth at East Vliedland with his parents.
He had been commander one time.
Tunis and Inka were Sikambren(seafaring Kimbren) and happened to be with their uncle
in Aldegamond. When the young Kimbren came together they choose Godis to be their
king or leader and the Sikambren chose Tunis to be their leader and Inka as
rear-admiral. Then the seamen sailed to the denmarks.There they took Godis and his
warlike landsoldiers on board. With a strong wind they were quickly in schoonland
where the `Northern`(possibly from norway) brothers joined them. Then Godis split his
army in three parts. `Frya` was their call to arms and thus he defeated the magyars as
if they were children. The Magy sent representatives with staff and crown. They said
to Godis: `O, greatest of Kings, we are guilty, but all that we have done has happened
out of need etc. etc.` Godis let himself be fooled and was crowned King by the Magy.
Many Seamen and landsoldiers left silently taking Kaat(the mother) with them. But Kaat
did not want to appear in front of the mother at techel nor in front of the general
gathering and jumped overboard. Then the stormwind came and whipped the ships on the
coasts of the low lands, (Map 1 Danabrohe) without missing a single person. Later they
have called this street `Kattegat`. Map 1(Mor Theriu or Mor Kathier) After Godis was
crowned he attacked the wild people. They were all horsemen but Godis defeats them.
The wild people are different from the Magyars and were troubling the Magyars as well.
As a reward the Magy gives him his daughter as a wife. He is bewitched with magical
insence, and after some time he starts to ridicule and neglect wr.alda`s spirit,
meanwhile bending his free neck for false idolatrous statues. His realm lasted seven
years. Then he disappeared. The Magyars said that he had been taken up among their gods
and ruled over them from there, but our people laughed at their words. When Godis had
been gone for a while discord came. We wanted to choose another king, but the Magy would
not tolerate that. He claimed it was his right, given to him by his gods. But there
was another conflict between the magyars and the Finen, who did not want to honor Frya
nor Godis. Godis had a son with the daughter of the Magy. The Magy crowned the boy
King and put himself in service as his advisor and tutor. Many Magyars left with their
men, the seamen left by ship and an army of bold Finen went with them as rowers.
To be continued below, The history of Tunis en Inka.. but first:
The signs around this page, written in the most elementairy form of rune-writing form
the beginning of a text with the title: "This is our earlyest history." After adding
some verbs and other words to make proper sentences the following text is formed:
"Wr.alda, who alone is God and eternal, made the beginning. Then came time. Time created
all things,also the earth. The earth beared all grasses, herbs and trees, all the good
and the bad animals.All that was good she brought forth by day and all that was evil she
brought forth by night. After the jolfeast she beared three maidens: Lyda from glowing
matter, Finda from hot matter and Frya came from warm matter. When they appreared, Wr.alda
fed them with his breath, so that mankind would be connected to him. When they were grown,
they started to have pleasure in the dreams of Wr.alda. Delight came to them. And now they
each gave birth to twelve sons and twelve daughters, each Joltime a pair. From them all
men have come."
The background-image of this page is that of Frya, from who Fästa recieved a text with
her council in about the same way as moses did recieve the ten commandments.
Continued: the hisstory of Tunis and Inka. When Tunis wanted to return home he went for
the low lands first.(Danebrohe) But he could not land there. The mother had arranged that.
The same thing happened in Vliedland and then he could not land anywhere. In order to
survive he comes on land with his men to steal food and by day he went on by boat. Thus
they came to a place called Katdiek(because of the stone quay) Here they bought supplies,
but the Burghmaiden did not want them to settle there. Then a dispute occurred. Tunis
wanted to go through the street of the meditereanian sea, to sail for the rich king of
'Egyptland', as he had done before. But Inka said he`d had enough of all the Finda-folk.
He thought that there would be a higher part of Atland, like an Island, left where he
could live peacefully with his men. Tunis put a red flag on the beach, and Inka a blue
one. Each could choose who he wanted to follow. And miraculously, to Inka, who did not
want to do service for the kings of the Finda-folk, most of the men walked over.
The people were counted, the ships devided and the fleets separated. From Tunis news
has come. From Inka never more. 193 year after Atland has sunk: Tunis arrives at the
Phoinician coast,(Mediterraenian sea) and how things went with Tunis...
