In 1940, Hitler really was looking for the “Holy Grail” but he didn’t go to Egypt searching for it:
Heinrich Himmler, the head of the Nazi SS, made a secret wartime mission to an abbey in Spain in search of what he believed was the Aryan Holy Grail, a new book claims.
Himmler visited the famous Montserrat Abbey near Barcelona where he thought he would find the Grail which Jesus Christ was said to have used to consecrate the Last Supper.
According to The Desecrated Abbey, by Montserrat Rico GÃ³ngora, the ReichsfÃ¼hrer-SS thought if he could lay claim to the Holy Grail it would help Germany win the war and give him supernatural powers.
Credit to the author Graham Keeley for noting the following:
After initially proclaiming himself a Catholic, Himmler had started to attack the German church more publicly, and increasingly turned to a fanatical belief in racially based paganism.
Hitler had a similar understanding of scripture, also with hints of paganism.
