Adolf Josef Lanz dies. Known as Father Georg while a Cistercian monk, he renounced his vows in 1899 and left the Heiligenkreuz monastery near Vienna.

Lanz then adopted the name "Lanz von Liebenfels" and became an important figure among racists, anti-Semites, and German nationalists at the start of the 20th century.

Lanz von Liebenfels created a group named Ordo Novi Templi (Order of the New Templars) which used a swastika as its symbol. His magazine, Ostara, was read avidly by Adolf Hitler and Dietrich Eckart, thus making him an important influence on the founding of the Nazi Party.
