About the Author

Otto Rahn was born in Michelstadt, Germany, in 1904. After earning his degree in philology in 1924, he traveled extensively to the caves and castles of southern France, researching his belief that the Cathars were the last custodians of the Grail. Recruited by Himmler into the SS as a civilian archaeologist and historian, Rahn quickly grew disillusioned with the direction his country was taking and resigned in 1939. He died, an alleged suicide, on March 13, 1939, in the snows of the Tyrolean Mountains. Lucifer's Court was translated into English by Christopher Jones, who also translated Otto Rahn's Crusade Against the Grail, published in 2006.

Reviews

" . . . a definite 'must read' for any serious student of lost wisdom, and certainly for any student of the Cathar tradition. It is well written, personal, and utterly riveting."--Lesley Crossingham, New Dawn, Nov/Dec 2008
"New Age collections will find it intriguing and packed with adventure."--The Midwest Book Review, May 08
