Hitler considered himself a philosopher and he subscribed to two philosophers in particular, Wagner and Nietzsche. Wagner in the opera Parzifal masculinized the spear of destiny to represent Evolution and Science and feminized the holy grail to represent Religion. If you remember Hitler possessed the Spear of Longinus not the holy grail. His being catholic was because he comes from a very Catholic country which expected it’s rulers to be Catholic, just like the president is expected to be Christian in America. Don’t believe me that Germany is a Catholic country? Name a car country that has a car company with a Religious name…..
