The Importance of Ritual

odin7452,280 words

French translation here

The culture comes from the cult, and without the cult, we’re just kidding ourselves.

Radical Traditionalists are excellent critics. Read more …

Wagner Bicentennial Symposium  
Wagner’s Place in the Germanic Tradition
Part 8: Gelassenheit

brunnhildesimmolation2,275 words

Part 8 of 8

Gelassenheit

We can say that the plot of the Ring is simply this: Western man, in the person of Wotan, finally awakens to the destructiveness of his thumotic nature, and wills his own end. (See my review of Duchesne’s Uniqueness of Western Civilization for a discussion of how Western man is preeminently thumotic man.) Read more …

Part 7: Siegfried & Götterdämerung

siegfriedandrhinemaidens3,645 words

Part 7 of 8

Siegfried

If Wotan is the main character of the Ring, Siegfried is its hero. However, in dealing with the character of Siegfried we do not depart from our discussion of Wotan at all. This is because Siegfried, like many of the other characters in the Ring, is a kind of hypostatization of an aspect of Wotan himself.  Read more …

Das Rheingold

When the events of Das Rheingold begin, the Wotan-Loge relationship is already well-established, and the primeval crimes described earlier are long past. However, the opera begins with yet another crime against nature: Alberich’s theft of the Rhinegold. Read more …

Wagner Bicentennial Symposium  
Wagner’s Place in the Germanic Tradition
Part 5: The One-Eyed God

pagan2,522 words

Part 5 of 8

The story of the Ring involves four ages, similar to those taught in Tradition.

The Age of Titans is the period represented by figures somehow more primordial than the gods: Erda, the Norns, and possibly the Rhine daughters. Events in this age are not depicted in the Ring; they are merely referred to (primarily in Götterdämmerung).

Wotan and the Faustian West

As noted in the Introduction to this essay, at the time of the Ring’s conception Wagner was an anarchist revolutionary. Major influences on his thinking included Bakunin, Feuerbach, Hegel, and possibly Marx (though of these only Bakunin was an anarchist). Read more …

Wagner’s Use of Sources for the Ring

As a brief summary of how Wagner makes use of the major sources discussed in section three above, I don’t think one could do any better than this paragraph from an article by Elizabeth Magee:

Looking back, we can see how the Eddas supplied most of Das Rheingold, Read more …

The Story of Der Ring des Nibelungen

For the uninitiated, I will now tell the story of the Ring, confining myself to essentials. Even the initiated would do well to read this summary, just to re-familiarize themselves with the story, as the account of Wagner’s use of the source material to follow will presuppose that one is well-acquainted with the events of all four operas.

Part 1: The Origins of Der Ring des Nibelungen

4282-the-dream-of-ossian-jean-auguste-dominique-ingres5,716 words

Part 1 of 8

1. Introduction

Richard Wagner is the man principally responsible for keeping the Germanic mythological tradition alive in the modern world. Countless individuals have been exposed to that tradition through Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen, and it is safe to say that at any given moment somewhere in the world some portion of the Ring is being played or performed.

Fire & Ice’s Fractured Man

Fractured+Man1,047 words

Insofar as Fire and Ice’s music can be described as “folk” it is the folk music of the ancient skalds and scops, far antecedent to the recent folk revival even if elements of tradition are latently present in that revival. Insofar as it is “gothic” music it is so in the sense described by Edred Thorsson in “The Secret of the Gothick God of Darkness” —  Read more …

The Ninefold, Part 3

UniversityParkRuneStone6[5]3,062 words

Part 3 of 3

What about Midgardhr? Our world lies at the intersection of the four pairs of worlds.[1] It is the place where the opposites meet and blend, and where they are, in a sense, overcome.This “dialectic” of the reconciliation of opposite terms is a perennial feature of the Germanic tradition, showing up again prominently in Medieval German mysticism, and in modern German philosophy (especially Hegel).  Read more …

“God, I’m with a heathen.” 
The Rebirth of the Männerbund
in Brian De Palma’s The Untouchables

7,450 words

Brian de Palma’s 1987 film, The Untouchables, from a script by David Mamet, is usually seen as a Hero’s Quest film, like Star Wars (or The Final Sacrifice), or at least an Epic in some way,[1] but I find it more interesting to see it as a film that, probably unconsciously, delineates the re-creation of the ancient Aryan Männerbund.[2]

Durant les quatre dernières décennies, on a écrit beaucoup de choses sur « l’occultisme nazi », généralement des bêtises.
