The Spear of Destiny by Trevor RavenscroftThe Spear of Destiny
The Occult Power behind the Spear which pierced the side of Christ . . .
. . . and how Hitler inverted the Force in a bid to conquer the World

by Trevor Ravenscroft

In The Spear of Destiny, Trevor Ravenscroft describes how for 2000 years, since it pierced the side of Christ, this mysterious artifact has been invested with amazing occult powers.

He records the legend and its continuing fulfillment in the decline of the Roman Empire, the Dark Ages, and the 20th century. His account tells the story of the chain of men who possessed the Spear, from Herod the Great to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, and how they sought to change the face of history by wielding its occult powers for good or evil.

The Spear is also identified as the Lance of the Holy Grail mentioned in the sagas of the Dark Ages.

The final chapters of the book describe a Manichean battle of worlds behind the changing scene of the 20th century. Also claimed by Ravenscroft are the Satanic occult faculties developed by of Adolf Hitler during his early desperate years in Austria, describing how he furthered his aims and his attempted conquest of Europe through the use of black magic practices.
