The Occult Roots of Nazism: Nearly half a century after the defeat of the Third Reich, Nazism remains a subject of extensive historical inquiry, general interest, and, alarmingly, a source of inspiration for resurgent fascism in Europe.
Goodrick-Clarke’s powerful and timely book traces the intellectual roots of Nazism back to a number of influential occult and millenarian sects in the Habsburg Empire Nearly half a century after the defeat of the Third Reich, Nazism remains a subject of extensive historical inquiry, general interest, and, alarmingly, a source of inspiration for resurgent fascism in Europe.
Goodrick-Clarke’s powerful and timely book traces the intellectual roots of Nazism back to a number of influential occult and millenarian sects in the Habsburg Empire during its waning years. These sects combined notions of popular nationalism with an advocacy of Aryan racism and a proclaimed need for German world-rule.
This book provides the first serious account of the way in which Nazism was influenced by powerful millenarian and occult sects that thrived in Germany and Austria almost fifty years before the rise to power of Adolf Hitler. These millenarian sects principally the Ariosophists espoused a mixture of popular nationalism, Aryan racism, and occultism to support their advocacy of German world-rule.
Over time their ideas and symbols, filtered through nationalist-racist groups associated with the infant Nazi party, came to exert a strong influence on Himmler’s SS. The fantasies thus fueled were played out with terrifying consequences in the realities structured into the Third Reich: Auschwitz, Sobibor, and Treblinka, the hellish museums of Nazi apocalypse, had psychic roots reaching back to millenial visions of occult sects.

Lists with This Eurzeln. Apr 04, Owlseyes rated it really liked it Shelves: Guido von List died inbut, as the author points: In the long run, his work would gather groups such as The Templars, Renaissance humanists, Kabbalists, and Rosicrucians.
Another character, still with that “ancestral clairvoyant memory”, and under analysis, is Karl Maria Wiligut: Okkullten am determined to pledge the Thule to this struggle. Our Order is a Germanic Order. Loyalty is also Germanic. Our god is Walvater, his rune is the Ar-rune. Wotan, Wili, We is the unity of the trinity. The Ar-rune signifies Aryan, primal fire, the sun and the eagle. Sebottendorff read a lot about List. Thule people would be the first ones Hitler would turn to.
One should never forget about the Nazi link to the East. Haushofer was also member of the Luminous Lodge, a secret Japanese society, and the Thule society; he defended the colonization of central Asia, so that Germany would have access to the “hidden centers of powers in the East”.
The Third Reich just crumbled under its own wurzdln. The Goodrick-Clarke work is well-researched and fascinating. It offers appendixes on the blood lineages of some of the Nazi “initiates”. Apr 14, John rated it it was amazing. The Pan-German Vision 2. Guido von List 4.

Rudolf von Sebottendorff and the Thule Society The Holy Runes and the Edda Society Herbert Reichstein and Ariosophy The Private Magus of Heinrich Himmler Ariosophy and Adolf Hitler Appendices Notes and References Bibliography Index Acknowledgements I hesitated before reading this book fearing it might be some wacky neo nazi treatise that tends to froth and then bore.
I found it to be nothing of the sort. It was grounded, very factual, meticulously researched too much detail for some I guess and hugely interesting. For me it brilliantly put into European context the rise of Hitler and the Third Reich. The conditions were right for it: The old familiar world was dying be that the age old and stolid Habsburg Empire or the placid pastoral idyll of the many German Princedoms. Rapid industrialisation and urbanisation made the change inevitable.
Life was now more materialistic, it felt out of control; worse still, it was feared control was in the hands of alien forces, non Aryan ones. It all sounds so familiar — today we talk of the perils of globalisation, mass migration, loss of individual and national identity.
Some of the esoteric writers, movers and shakers featured here verged on the wacky to say the least and Goodrick-Clarke argues that Hitler did not have too much time for them. The latter heavily influenced ceremonial and SS ritual at their special castle.
For Hitler they had their uses though, further fomenting ever present anti-semitism, ever present in Austria and Germany and helping to make it feel more acceptable? I read this on Kindle which had mistakes on every page and some words appeared merely as a set of symbols Notwithstanding this extra challenge I persevered and it did not dampen my interest unduly; I have ordered a paperback copy and will look at it in more depth.
That should be a doddle after the cryptic ordeal on kindle. The author’s penultimate conclusion: When the endless columns of steel-helmeted legionaries marched beneath the swastika Germany was effectively saluting the founder-emperor of a new One Thousand Year Reich.

The shining new order was sustained by the wretched slave-cities where the Jewish demons were immolated as a burnt sacrifice or holocaust. The Nazi crusade was indeed essentially religious in its adoption of apocalyptic beliefs and fantasies including a New Jerusalem cf.
Hitler’s plans for a magnificent new capital at Berlin and the destruction of the Satanic hosts in a lake of fire. Auschwitz, Sobibor and Treblinka are the terrible museums of twentieth century Nazi apocalyptic”. A good follow up to Fritz’ Stern’s the Politics of Cultural Despair, which covers some of the same topics. There is another good, and far briefer discussion of this material in an essay of George Mosse entitled, “The Mystical Origins of National Socialism”, in Journal of History of Ideas 12; it is reprinted in several of Mosse’s collections.
No one goes further than Goodrick-Clarke, however, in developing the outer reaches o informative — on the outer limits of political psychology. No one goes further than Goodrick-Clarke, however, in developing the outer reaches of this racist theosophy — a very clear echo of which can be found in certain radical writings in the US.
This type of thinking, in other words, is not dead and buried. View all 4 comments. The title of the book is misleading. A root denotes both an origin and a lasting foundation i. All in all, this book also provides a good perspective on the decline of the Habsburg empire, which actually had my main interest.
Die okkulten Wurzeln des Nationalsozialismus
The occult doctrines themselves seem ridiculous almost without exception. They are amalgams of traditions, based on far-fetched interpretations of history which were often fuelled by ‘clairvoyant visions’, and spearheaded by men who stressed the importance of lineage while inventing their own, so that they could feign nobility and make claim to the ‘von’ they inserted between their first and last name.
Certainly preferable to sensationalist trash, but the huge number of historical references people, places, dates, events, nztionalsozialismus. Do not expect light reading. Oct 08, Maureen rated it liked it.

This was somewhat difficult reading, particularly the primary sources, not necessariy because the ideas were complex, but because I struggled to find the frame of mind that would consider these ideas compelling, internally consistent, and socially useful. What I found most interesting from Goodrick-Clarke’s piece was his chronology of how the effort to make this occultist movement take roots within a wider context in its shifting names and forms kept failing.
As I was reading, I kept wondering This was somewhat difficult reading, particularly the primary sources, not necessariy because the ideas were complex, but because I struggled to find the frame of mind that would consider these ideas compelling, internally consistent, and socially useful.
As I was reading, I kept wondering how these ideas were distributed and accepted in a wider context among the masses of Germans who eventually bought in to Nazi rituals and practices, and I think the answer is that they only did so in a fragmented, echoing manner.
Goodrick-Clarke chronicles occult societies with failing budgets and dwindling members, rituals with only a half-dozen attenders and lodges split by internal, petty conflict. On the other hand, we learn of ariosophist publications that eventually become the journalistic arm of the Nazi party and that Hitler himself tried to exert the force of will that would transform the DAP from a small conspiracy group to a large, national party.
While I understand how some of these ideas floating in the cultural ether and fed by anti-Catholocism and a general anxiety about the strength of German identity could be taken as the basis for a leader’s platform, I don’t have the sense of how these ideas took root in more mainstream associations beyond volkisch movements, which themselves only bear a weak connection, I think, to more bizarre occult ideaslike civic organizations, the army, youth groups, workers’ guilds or unions, or protestant churches.
Aug 17, T. Frohock rated it it was amazing Shelves: I used this book as research for my novel Where Oblivion Lives, and I have referred to Goodrick-Clark’s research several times. This is one of the the best researched books I’ve ever seen; however, it is neither an easy or a quick read. Oct 07, Simon rated it really liked it.
