LUCIFER COURT OTTO RAHN PDF

It is the travel journal of Otto Rahn who was sent out in search of the Holy Grail by Heinrich Himmler at some point in the late s. To say that Rahn has a "different take" on the nature and origins behind the Holy Grail than what most readers might expect would be an understatement. I suspect it was the first. Much of this was interesting.

Induced by Himmler to become the chief investigator of the occult for the Nazis, Rahn traveled throughout Europe--from Spain to Iceland--in the mid s pursuing leads to the Grail and other mysteries. This journey was also one of self-discovery for Rahn. He found such a faithful echo of his own innermost beliefs in the lives of the heretics of the past that he eventually called himself a Cathar and nurtured ambitions of restoring that faith, which had been cruelly destroyed in the fires of the Inquisition.

His journeys on assignment for the Reich--including researching an alleged entrance to Hollow Earth in Iceland and searching for the true mission of Lucifer in the caves of southern France that served as refuge for the Cathars during the Inquisition--also led to his disenchantment with his employers and his mysterious death in the mountains after his break with the Nazis.

Like an artist working on a mosaic who piles up small stones of a particular color to arrange them later in a preconceived plan, I collected ideas and knowledge under foreign skies and in lands far from home. The sum total has produced this pageant. Either through revisions, adding details, or underscoring--not to mention rearranging--I have prepared those chosen pages from my diary in such a way that others may scrutinize, understand, and love them.

My hand shall be a lucky one! I wrote these lines in a small town in Upper Hesse. As I looked out from my desk, spreading out before me was a countryside that is very precious--so much so that as my curiosity pushed me through difficult places in foreign lands, I was often homesick. My father is from a town that sits on a densely wooded peak that closes off the district to the south and where, as far back as anyone can recall, men and their womenfolk have cultivated the land, stood before the anvil, milled grain to flour, and sat in front of the spinning wheel in low-ceilinged rooms.

Their homeland is stony, and the sky is often filled with clouds. Only a few of them became wealthy. The sun and the climate are milder there, and the earth means well for those who love it.

The ruined walls of a castle dominate the Upper Hessian town where I now live, and where I wrote this book. Not far from the castle door the castle that still stands is a very old linden tree where St. Boniface first preached Roman Christianity to the Chatten. When I stood under it and looked north, my eyes fell upon an amazing basalt mass. My ancestors did not love St. Boniface, who preached the gospel of love. Elizabeth of Hungary who was Landgravine Elizabeth of Thuringia.

She was known for the miraculous transformation of bread into roses. In German, Rosenwunder are also sea roses, rosa rugosa. Before visiting my friends who invited me to Christmas Eve, I decided to wander through the town. Through the windows of the old town I saw some beautifully decorated Christmas trees glowing in candlelight.

I could hear the happy laughter of children and feel the passion of the fathers and mothers. Both sadness and happiness overwhelmed me. The bells began to announce the celebration, the ancient festival of light of the middle of winter. The sun god Helios-Apollo, Mithra, and even Chronos, the father of Zeus, were all born on this day, and time again they are born of a virgin mother. The Light Bringer suffered and nobody remembers him--except I! According to legend, the devil was so upset over the construction that with this stone he bombed the half-finished church in order to destroy it.

He just missed, goes the story. The stone is called teufelstein. How contradictory are Christians! In Cologne, they had burned at the stake heretics who should ascend to hell, while Isaiah placed hell at the bottom of all. And here in Halberstadt, the devil supposedly threw a stone from the heavens when, as we all know, he is the lord of the depths of hell.

Names are more smoke and thunder when they belong to divinities. After all, it is Christmas. After earning his degree in philology in , he traveled extensively to the caves and castles of southern France, researching his belief that the Cathars were the last custodians of the Holy Grail. Induced by Himmler to become a member of the SS as a civilian archaeologist and historian, Rahn quickly grew disillusioned with the direction his country was taking and resigned in He died, an alleged suicide, on March 13, , in the snows of the Tyrolean Mountains.

Lucifer's Court

One cannot discuss this book today without at least mentioning the Steven Spielberg film, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. We will get to the Cathars below, after we have given the devil his due. The differences from the film are even more interesting, of course. The Grail for Rahn, to the extent that he considers it a physical object, is the German Grail, the Stone that fell from Heaven in Parzival, rather than the cup associated with Jesus in the Anglo-French Grail stories. Also unlike the film, the book is virulently, relentlessly, jumping-up-and-down anti-Christian. It is particularly anti-Catholic, so much so as to reduce the antisemitic implications of its rejection of Yahweh to a mere subtext.
