Ior Bock [i:or bok] (born Bror Holger Svedlin; 17 January 1942) claims that his family line (Boxström) has been keepers of an ancient folklore tradition passed down through the generations, that provides insight into the pagan culture of Finland and its history, including an outline of a mystical sexuality connected to fertility rites.


According to Bock's autobiographical The Bock Saga, he was born as the result of an incestuous relationship between sea-captain Knut Victor Boxström (1860-1942), who would have been 81 years old at the time, and his daughter Rhea 42. Knut's only son had been killed in the Finnish Civil War in 1918, and this was a desperate measure to continue the male line and bring the extensive family-saga about heathen times to the public eye. Knut Victor Boxström died a month after Ior's birth, and was adopted by Rhea's husband, Bror Gustaf Bertil Svedlin.

The Finnish free-lance journalist Magnus Londen would rather Bock be born to a gardener from Porvoo and adopted by Bertil and Rhea Boxstrom-Svedlin. In his investigative article, based on interviews and official documents, Londen stresses that Ior Bock seems to have had a somewhat troublesome childhood. At the age of nine, in 1951, he was supposedly sent off to an institution. He finished school at age 15 and got a training practice as a lighting technician at Svenska Teatern, The Swedish Theatre in Helsinki, where he completed his basic education to become a professional actor at the same theatre by the age of 21.

In May 1962, Ior's brother Erik (also adopted) died of a gunshot wound sustained under unclear circumstances. In the police report, Ior originally stated that he had thrown a loaded pistol to Erik, which accidentally went off, shooting him through the heart and killing him; however, he later claimed that his brother had committed suicide. In closing the case Ior was eventually given a four-month suspended sentence for involuntary manslaughter.

Due to his family's specific interest and knowledge of Finnish history he became privately engaged with the history of the island fortress Sveaborg (in Finnish, Suomenlinna), the largest and most central monument of modern Finland. From 1969 he was employed as a daily tourist guide until 1984, when he continued his studies and guiding on a free-lance basis.

On 3 June 1999, Ior Bock was attacked in Helsinki and stabbed in the back with a knife several times. The attack left him a quadriplegic. He continues to promote his ideas.

Concept of story

After the funeral of his mother on 23 June 1984, Ior (Boxström-Svedlin) claimed that his mother Rhea (Boxstrom-Svedlin) had left him a will that contained a very specific duty, which was to bring their family-saga to the attention of professional historians as well as the public. The first recordings were done in Swedish in 1984 and 1985 at The Archive of Folklore in Helsinki. Later he gave further outlines and specifics in numerous tapes and in 1996 the Finnish writer Juha Javanainen collected some basic extracts in the book Bockin Perheen Saga (Helsinki, 1996).

In his saga Ior Bock employs a distinct etymology, based on the letters of the Scandinavian alphabets (Swedish and Finnish language). To support his (allegedly) historical saga he relates it to old Scandinavian folklore, supposedly describing what formed the nucleus of the ancient Scandinavian and Finnish cultures. The saga describes a detailed sound-system, an extensive mythology and a chronological and rather stringent saga. This "historical outline" covers a number of topics; from the origin of man before ice-time and his cast-system, to the break up of the global population due to the appearance of ice-time and continental drift. Isolated during eons the saga explains how the first culture was divided in ten different kingdoms as the continents drifted apart. Further it tells of the end of ice-time as a "new start" as the various populations would be able to regain contact with each other, developing common languages and alphabets that could work in all major cultures. Soon after 10.000 BP the connections and inter-change between countries and continents picked up dramatically and soon it spread into various demographiesgeography,

During the coming years the Asers developed the respective traditions of culture, arts, architecture, constitutions, the European monarchies and the culture of nobility, resulting in trade and material progression, - such as the production of metals and alloys, advanced tools and technology. A major theme in the poetry and prose of his story is that the ancient fertility-culture had some ideals very different from the ones introduced by the religions of the middle ages. One common heathen tradition was that of drinking the "divine vine" or the "water of wisdom", which literally refers to the male sperm and the female sap (ejaculate). According to the saga the pagan traditions were based on a naturalistic philosophy, where it was regarded a virtue to "save and not spill ones semen or female ejaculate". This could be done by sharing the liquids in a "69" or by practicing autofellatio - which the family-saga names sauna-solmu. The Finnish expression for this "sacred vines" would be Viisauden Vesi--the water of wisdom, which in other traditions are known under cryptic terms such as "The Water of Life", "The Seeds of Life", "The Nectar of The Gods" or "The Elixir of the Blessed".

While the men would learn how to "curl up" in a "sauna-knot" and drink directly from their "clubs", the women would normally ingest their mahla, female ejaculation, with a straw. According to the Bock Saga this used to be a collective tradition amongst men and women, where "heart-friends" (of the same sex) would share each others liquids as a special favor and sacrament, to enhance their respective fertility and vitalize their neurologic energy. The saga claims that within the heathen cultures this recycling of sperm and sap was obligatory at the age of 7, when it was combined with yoga exercises.

In 1987 Ior Bock and his supporters began fund-raising in order to finance the excavation of an ancient hallway, supposed to lead to a furnished temple-chamber inside the Sibbo Mountain, 30 km east of Helsinki. Inside of the temple-chamber the collected treasuere from the heathen culture of ancient Finland is supposed to have been hidden in a sizeable treasure chamber, known as the legendary Temple of Lemminkäinen. According to his family's stories and confirmed by the excavations that was made on various occasions from 1987-1998. 3 large stone slabs covered an entrance to one alleged hallway, said to go through solid bedrock. The excavation showed that there actually existed a hallway filled with sediments. According to the story the hallway was closed in 987, when Finland came under threat of invasion by foreign warlords. Before the attempted murder on Ior Bock 1999 the cave was excavated for more than 55 meters into the mountain [1],[2], forming what is the largest natural cave known to exist in Finland. Today the cave is filled with water, Above the cave entrance is an enormous Lingam rock called the Ette-stupa, located besides the old road of Gumbostrand in Sibbo (HKI).

Bock in modern culture

In 1994, Kingston Wall, a Finnish progressive rock group included the core of Bock's mythic symbolism on their last album, Tri-Logy. The saga was described in the CD booklet and some of the song lyrics featured themes from it.
