Thus Tiwaz is the rune of self-sacrifice and of kings and great leaders of the people. The word Tiwaz, fyr in Old Norse, is the exact cognate to Sanskrit dayus, Greek Zeus, and Latin Ju-piter. A threefold mystery is contained in Tiwaz: (1) justice, (2) war, and (3) world-column. Certain aspects of all three concepts are intimately related in the runic cosmology. Tiwaz is principally the force of divine order in the multiverse, and especially among mankind. But Tyr is also important as a "war god." This is because of the special judicial and spiritual qualities that were imparted to conflict by the ancient Northmen. An Old Norse word sums up this aspect quite well: vapnadomr ("judgment by arms: war). Combat was seen as a struggle between numinous forces in conjunction with physical ones.
