Julius Evola

Julius Evola, also known as Baron Giulio Cesare Evola, (May 19, 1898–June 11, 1974) was an Italian philosopher, esotericist, occultist, author, artist, poet, political activist, soldier and, most significantly, was described as a Radical Traditionalist. Evola is primarily known for his involvement in Italian Fascist politics until the movement was defeated in World War II.

It was his writings about the racial purity of Atlanteans that ultimately led to the discovery of an occult method of time travel by the SS.
