FRISIAN ALLIANCE

Campaigning for an
independent Friesland

Oera Linda Book

The Frisian Alliance derives its proposals for an independent Friesland from the Oera Linda Book, a collection of ancient writings discovered in the Netherlands in the 1860s, detailing the history and mythology of the Frisians. Although the manuscript apparently dates to the 13th century, it is copied from much older texts, and since it is written in the oldest and purest known form of the Frisian language, it shall be required learning in all schools. It comprises six parts, of which the second, The Book of Adela’s Followers, is by far the longest. These are divided into a total of fifty-three chapters. The first English translation, linked below, was made by William Sandbach in 1876, and published by Trübner & Co. of London.
