Book that claims Hitler was a satan worshipper who acquired a magic spear that was used to pierce Christ when he was crucified and later possessed by other historical figures. This book is more or less a bunch of made up bs. There is absolutely no evidence that Hitler was a Satanist or any other type of practicing occultist. I seem to remember the closest thing anybody ever came across showing Hitler being involved in the occult was he subscribed to a Thule Society newsletter in his early adulth Book that claims Hitler was a satan worshipper who acquired a magic spear that was used to pierce Christ when he was crucified and later possessed by other historical figures.
I seem to remember the closest thing anybody ever came across showing Hitler being involved in the occult was he subscribed to a Thule Society newsletter in his ravensdroft adulthood. Its like saying that because somebody read a few books about UFO’s then you should assume they were abducted by aliens.
Yes there were people heavily involved in the occult at the highest levels of the Nazi party deetin as I said before there is absolutely no evidence that Hitler was, and in fact there’s quite a bit that proves the opposite. As far out as the premise is you would think that at the least Spear of Destiny would be somewhat entertaining, maybe trevpr the vain of something like one of those wacky right wing Christian books that claims world elites are shapeshifting Satan worshippers, but Spear of Destiny actually manages to be boring on top of everything else.

Almost the only New Religion that escapes his wrath is Wicca. Yet, for some reason, the book still turns up on the shelves ravenscoft practitioners of all of these traditions. Stein supposedly was among the first Hitler discussed his occult discoveries with, and he is used as a source for some of the most unlikely passages of the book.
Hitler, and just about everyone else in the book, turns out to be a reincarnation of a figure from the original Tfevor mythos, and the Spear is the true Grail. He goes on and on for teevor after endless page about anthroposophical dogma, and tries to integrate poorly-remembered history into the whole. At one point, he confuses Baldur von Schirach with Constantine von Neurath.
At another, he seems to forget the name of Adolf Eichmann. Read xestin for entertainment only. Jul 11, Simon rated it it was ok Shelves: This book concerns much of the myth and legendry surrounding the Spear which allegedly pierced Jesus Christ’s side when he was on the cross, and in particular Adolf Hitler’s obsession with it with several asides on Nazi Occultism in general and where it came from. Ironically, the least convincing aspect of the book is Trevor Ravenscroft’s main thesis of Hitler being motivated so much by the quest for the Spear of Destiny.
His main source here is anecdotal evidence from Walter Johannes Stein, an A This book concerns much of the myth and legendry surrounding the Spear which allegedly pierced Jesus Christ’s side when he was on the cross, and in particular Adolf Hitler’s obsession with it with several asides on Nazi Occultism in general and where it came from.
The book was written in the mids, over a decade after Stein died. Basically, this means that most of the presented information about Hitler’s occult activities rely on the author’s 30 year old recollections of conversations with someone who in turn was also relying on year recollections of conversations with a young Hitler.
It ka not help either that there aren’t that many source references in general, with much of Stein’s stories about Hitler being difficult to corroborate and the Hitler biography most used here is Hermann Rauschning’s which is generally considered one of the least reliable. All that’s before we get into the chapters near the end where Ravenscroft tries to connect Tibetan Buddhism to both modern Satanism by way of ancient Atlantean occultism, or halts the book almost completely to promote his idiosyncratic interpretation of Christianity which is strongly inspired by Theosophy and Rudolf Steiner.
What the book is useful for, though, is a comprehensive guide to many of trevkr the myths surrounding the Spear of Destiny and the Holy Grail as well as the beliefs of the Thule Society, the occult secret society to which the original Nazi Party was connected, and interwar Germanic occultism in general even though it’s obviously filtered through the author’s own strong religious beliefs. Before reading destln, I had no idea that the Spear of Destiny laance was so important to the German-speaking cultures with both the Holy Roman Empire and later the Austrian Habsburg dynasty basing large parts of their authority upon having the Spear of Destiny in their possession.

The proper explanation for this would likely be that both the Ravenxcroft Society and much early fantasy literature L. Frank Baum, Robert E. Lovecraft were strongly inspired by Theosophy May 12, Keats27 rated it it was amazing. Absolutely loved this book. Reads like a history book all the way through. Many people will dismiss the book out of hand because its spiritual content goes so heavily against their incomplete world view.
The writing is cogent and sane, if a bit pedantic. The content, originally put together by WJ Stein, was intended to wake people up to the reality of the ravenscrof. Even if we dismiss some of the claims that are more difficult to substantiate, the occult practices of the Nazis are well documented and were effective. Check out the films of a Nuremburg rally to see how a “spirit” can affect a crowd.
To the atheists who refuse even to entertain such claims, all I can say is that there are a LOT more things in heaven and earth, Horatio Feb 03, Jake rated it liked it. A better introductory book to the topic is Peter Levenda’s Unholy Alliance. My main complaint with this book is it’s reliance on one major source, Dr.
There are other source ravenwcroft cited, but Ravenscroft uses Stein’s singular testimony to establish Hitler’s early obsession with the Longinus spear, which is the central focus of the book. The other sources and deeper research confirm both the Nazi’s history with the spear as well as the occult side of Hitler’s rise to power.
All of these occult elements make for fascinating topics, and only near the end of the book does Ravenscroft really tie it all together by introducing the work of Rudolf Steiner into the equation.
I think the book could have been a better read had Steiner’s work been introduced earlier and integrated more smoothly into the narrative. Having said that, the last quarter of the book is interesting enough to raise this to a three star review.
Any book that stimulates further reading on a topic and generates genuine curiosity, in my opinion, can’t be considered a waste of time. Nov 04, Senan Gil Senan rated it ravenscgoft was amazing. I have to give this book 5 stars because I have read it three times, and have always found it profound along with its sequel ‘The mark of the Beast’.
Trevor Ravenscroft RIP was a Rosicrucian who certainly seemed inspired or maybe just party to inate secrets when he wrote these books. This book tells you of a hidden history of occult manipulation and control of power since times of the roman empire.
It makes you look at history from a different perspective, and gives you another explanation of I have to ravenxcroft this book 5 stars because I have read it three times, and have always found it profound along with its sequel ‘The mark of the Beast’. It makes you look at history from a different perspective, and gives you another explanation of why humans love war, death and carnage throughout their history. Adolf Hitler and Henrich Himmler are dealt with in depth and shown to very esoterically driven.
I remember ravfnscroft this book in my teenage years whilst the Soviet empire was still seen as the worlds prime threat. When Trevor Ravenscroft started examining how radical Islam would become the western worlds major protagonist, I thought he had lost the plot. How prescient he was indeed. Now I remember how he states in the sequel to this book that when the war against radical Islam is over, a greater conflict with the Chinese will take over.
Ravenscroft, Trevor 1921-1989
Now that is scarily precient for a author’s prediction from Perhaps Napoleon was right about China. May 04, Stephen Hawks rated it it was amazing. I read this book in the early 80’s. At Nuremberg the occult practices and obsessions of Nazi germany were ignored.
The overt horrors of Nazi germany were enough to deal with in such a court. However, that does not negate the fact that I read this book in the early 80’s. However, that does not negate the fact that black magic was a part of this diabolical regime.
Only an expert on occult history, lore, and practice could point out the actual errors in this book. The one thing I would note is the general acceptance of overt objects for underlying spiritual content tends to be misleading especially how it has been picked up in popular culture- for instance, when the cup of Christ is mistaken for the grail when Christ himself is the grail and not so much in the physical sense but in a more literal spiritual sense not withstanding the origins of grail lore in pre-Christian European antiquity.
If you are looking for a physical literal grail. Rudolf Steiner mentions it as the Element Carbon, The foundational element of living matter.
Jun 28, Stephan Friedman rated it it was amazing. A highly informative, well written book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The author provides plenty of historical references and quotations. Just when you think that the subject is becoming too fantastic, it is backed up with a factual source. The only erroneous point was the portrayal of Aleister Crowley purely as an evil magician, which is a dated, last deetin view, very far from the truth.
