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. Likewise, some great leaps are made to include other figures from mythology and folklore in with Lucifer. Remember these stories are just stories meant to impart some value or moral.

Much of this was interesting. Likewise, some great leaps are made to include other figures from mythology and folklore in with Lucifer.

Remember these stories are just stories meant to impart some value or moral. The final comments I will make about this book should be obvious. This book was written by a Nazi. A Nazi who later decided to leave the SS and was then "encouraged" to kill himself, mostly owing to the fact that he was a homosexual and had become disenchanted with the Nazi party.

So, as one might imagine, there are few unkind references to Jews throughout this book and it is the Jewish connection that seems to be the biggest hang up the author has with Christianity.

How much of this was what Rahn truly believed and how much of it was him towing the party line in an effort to keep himself safe is hard to say.

A review of Otto Rahn’s Lucifer’s Court by John J. Reilly

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.

Lucifer's Court: A Heretic's Journey in Search of the Light Bringers

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.
