Example text

Thereupon followed the persecution by Pope Innocentius III, the burning of the scriptures which had been translated from Latin into the mother tongue, and the execution of a number of the members of the sect. The survivors then fled throughout Lorraine and into the Netherlands and those other parts of Germany where every door, beyond the immediate reach of Rome, was opened to them. Yet another group fled into Lombardy. There it found similar heresies being spread by, among others, the Patarians in Milan, and the teachings of Arnold of Brescia who strove beyond what was purely evangelical for ecclesiastical as well as political reform, and who denied the pope a title to temporal power as a prerequisite for his spiritual health.

Accordingly, among their subject populations there arose the desire for a liberator and leader of the slaves; hence the legend of Christos. Beginning in Asia Minor, this Christos myth spread to Palestine, where it became linked with Jewish messianic yearnings, and was finally attached to the personality of Jesus. Besides his own utterances, there were falsely attributed to him the words and doctrines of near eastern prophets and, ironically indeed, in the form of an extension of ancient Aryan moral precepts; for example, the nine commandment table which had already been appropriated by the Jews as their ten prohibitions.

Such symbols are not simply those of an abstract theological nature, but represent with overwhelming clarity an organic antithesis between what is Nordic Germanic and the lesser races imbued with the spiritual nature of the near east. It was the blood sacrifices of the nations upon the battlefields of the world which gave the democratic men of the east and their bastardised accomplices in the large cities the opportunity to achieve ascendancy. That human type which first began to gain predominance in the France of 150 years ago, has since 1918 -- financed by the wealth of the Levant -- assumed the leadership of democracy in Germany.
