Spear and Magic Shroud?

"Hitler was obsessed with the occult - the Nazi swastika has long been considered a black magic symbol while he was also devoted to German composer Richard Wagner who was said to be a Satanist."

OK, Wagner may have been an anti-Semite, but a Satanist? Really?

The article also plays up the 'occult' interests of Hitler, such as his interest in the occult shroud that covered Jesus' body and the occult spear that pierced Jesus' side. (Not to mention the Ark. Hitler is a nut on the subject.)

And I wonder just how 'long' the swastika has been considered a black magic symbol?

One last bit of sindonological news translation. "The Shroud is thought to have travelled widely before it was brought to France in the 14th century" means "the Shroud has no provenance before it appeared in France in the 14th century."
