Lomer, Georg

Lomer, Georg, 1877-1957, was a German occultist born in Loosten, near Wismar, Germany. He studied medicine and was a physician prior to World War I, after which he encountered the German Theosophical circles. He then began publishing books on a large variety of occult subjects including critiques of Christianity, dream interpretation, alternative medicine, astrology, and Germanic paganism. He also was a professional graphologist and astronomer in the 1930s.

Like many occultists between the wars, he was influenced by the Ariosophical movement, which combined Germanic paganism and Theosophy with racism and Anti-Semitism. Many of his works including Hakenkrenz und Sowjetstern (Swastika and Soviet Star, 1925) and Die Gotter der Heimat (The Gods of the Homeland, 1927), contained much Ariosophical thought. From 1929 on he was editor of the Asgard, which was subtitled "A fighting sheet for the gods of the homeland," which published articles by Ariosophical writers such as F. B. Marby and Gregor Schwarz-Bostunitsch. Like all occultists that were outside of the Nazi party's inner circle, he and his periodical were silenced when Hitler seized power in 1933, but after surviving the war years he worked postwar German occult culture till his death in 1957.

During the 1920s or 1930s he wrote the Seven Hermetic Letters for Hermetic students. Lomer never tried publishing the letters because he knew they would be studied only by the serious few inspired to achieve soul development and enlightenment. However, some portions of the letters were first published anonymously as an appendix to Franz Bardon's Frabato the Magician. The entire text has recently been brought out in an English translation.
