In the late 50s, the author of this book, Trevor Ravenscroft, met a lad, Walter Johannes Stein, who had spent years researching the Holy Grail and the Spear of Destiny.
Stein was going to write a book about the stuff he had learned, but he was dying, so he gave all of his information to Ravenscroft so that he could write the book instead. Fascinated by his strange new ability, he decided to buy a copy of Parzival , presumably to compare with the passages he was reciting. Well, the copy he bought had some interesting notes in it. He tracked down its previous owner through his bookseller. The previous owner was Hitler. Hitler and Stein became friends kinda.
Together, they went to a museum in Austria to see a spearhead that some had claimed was from the Spear of Longinus. When they were standing in front of the spearhead, Hitler started to glow and Stein realised that his friend was being possessed by Satan.
You see, Hitler was interested in the grail and spear because he thought they could provide him with access to the Akashic records. Unfortunately, while tripping on peyote, Hitler became possessed by the Devil.
The Devil is actually one of the negative powers that came into being after some of the species that lived on the lost city of Atlantis evolved from stretchy mutants into Aryans. The Hofburg Spear is of medival origin. Ravenscroft starts his book off telling his reader that Walter Johannes Stein, his good friend, deserves most of the credit for writing this book.
A few years after this book was published, Ravenscroft admitted that he never met Stein in person. He said that he had only ever been able to talk to his spirit through a medium. Ravenscroft is clearly attempting to be a part of the fantastic realism movement started by Pauwels and Bergier , but his book is one step stupider than the stuff they put out. While they encouraged speculation, Ravenscroft just tells lies. A fair assessment. As a work of non-fiction, this is seriously one of the worst books I have ever read.
I know I say that kind of thing more often than other people, but this really was a turd. This book makes Holy Blood, Holy Grail seem like a serious academic study written to impeccable standards. It was tortuous. The Spear of Destiny is a surprisingly popular book my copy is from the 9th printing! Like Like. Thanks for that. Or some such. You are commenting using your WordPress.

The Hofburg Spear, the actual, physical spear that the events in book revolve around, is definitely not the Spear of Longinus. Ravenscroft never actually met Walter Johannes Stein, the supposed source for nearly all of his information.

The Spear of Destiny – Trevor Ravenscroft
This book became recognised by some as a classic of Holy Grail and Nazi occult history — other more rational folk saw it as pure fantasy and a product of a time when pretty much anything weird found an avid readership. The Spear has, over the years, been attributed with mystical powers and a number of popular New Age, Conspiracy, Horror and Science Fiction books have popularised the legend. Trevor was a Commando in the Second World War, and spent four years in German prisoner of war camps, though he did make three escape attempts. He was allegedly involved in an attempt to assassinate Rommel in North Africa in — though this has been disputed. Bear in mind that Trevor presented all this as fact and not as a bit of a laugh. Allegedly the Spear had been prized by many great warriors through the centuries, including Napoleon Bonaparte who had acquired the lance after the Battle of Austerlitz in December However, the pointy thing serves an evil spirit, which turns out to be the Antichrist himself — did you see that coming?
