ERNST SCHERTEL PDF

The seemingly impossible ascent of this diminutive demagogue and his string of victories against the once so proud French and British, and of course that great Soviet evil to the east, demanded an easy explanation. In a British writer called Trevor Ravenscroft offered one. This great gilded lance, the guide told him, had been carried by Roman Emperor Constantine the Great, Frankish warlord Charles Martel and a litany of German conqueror kings, emboldening them with its supernatural power. A gloriously overworked mess of steel, iron and brass, the Hofburg Spear is embedded with what was said to be one of the nails from the cross, capped with a silver band and then cloaked in gold sometime around the 14th century. As a source for his tall tale, Ravenscroft claimed to have befriended the German emigre occult writer Walter Johannes Stein toward the end of his life.

The seemingly impossible ascent of this diminutive demagogue and his string of victories against the once so proud French and British, and of course that great Soviet evil to the east, demanded an easy explanation. In a British writer called Trevor Ravenscroft offered one. This great gilded lance, the guide told him, had been carried by Roman Emperor Constantine the Great, Frankish warlord Charles Martel and a litany of German conqueror kings, emboldening them with its supernatural power.

A gloriously overworked mess of steel, iron and brass, the Hofburg Spear is embedded with what was said to be one of the nails from the cross, capped with a silver band and then cloaked in gold sometime around the 14th century. As a source for his tall tale, Ravenscroft claimed to have befriended the German emigre occult writer Walter Johannes Stein toward the end of his life.

The two became occult fellow travellers despite one of them being Jewish and decades later, Hitler seized the Hofburg Spear as soon as the Nazis rolled into Austria and stole it away to a vault in Nuremberg, where it powered the unholy forward march of the Third Reich.

With the courtroom as his stage and the press gathered in the gallery, Hitler held forth his views on all manner of matters ideas he would later develop into the rambling Mein Kampf during his subsequent imprisonment.

It was modesty that made me want to be the drummer. That is of the utmost importance. Unsurprisingly, it was allegory. Well, the the Holy Lance appears to have chalked up considerable milage if all the folklore is to be taken seriously. Of course all of these stories can be nonsense, contrived to tighten the bonds of faith in testing times, and in all likelihood they were. According to the Imperial Treasury itself, the Hofburg Spear dates from the 8th century, while an independent chemical test in offers up the 7th century — either way the lance is far too modern to match the mythology.

Yes, Hitler was interested in the occult but he was interested in it primarily as a device, as something uniquely German with which to bind the volk. He did indeed loot the Imperial Treasury of the Habsburgs and spirit the Hofburg Spear to Nuremberg along with the rest of the imperial paraphernalia, but he did so with a view to its symbolic power rather than its otherworldly potential.

However taking Ravenscroft and Stein at their word also proves problematic. As the two legal teams waited at the High Court to contest the accusation of plagiarism, Ravenscroft revealed that he and Herbert had crossed paths before. I was sued for using what I believed were historical facts but were actually gained by transcendental meditation — that is exclusive to Ravenscroft. In both fiction and what passes for fact, the Hofburg Spear and its supposed links to Nazi Germany loom large, a somewhat depressing attempt to attribute real horrors to supernatural imaginings rather than confront the complexity of their real causes.
