Adolf Josef Lanz is born in Vienna. Later known as Father Georg after he becomes a Cistercian monk, he will renounce his vows in 1899 and leave the Heiligenkreuz monastery near Vienna.

Lanz will then adopt a third name, "Lanz von Liebenfels" and grows to become an important figure among the many racists, anti-Semites, and German nationalists at the start of the 20th century.

Lanz von Liebenfels will found a group he names Ordo Novi Templi (Order of the New Templars) which uses a swastika as its symbol. His magazine, Ostara, will be read avidly by Adolf Hitler and Dietrich Eckart. This will make Adolf Josef Lanz an important influence on the founding of the Nazi Party.
