What do we know of Hans Calmeyer’s ethics? we know of his family’s at least superficial Christian affiliations, not exactly Catholic, but not exactly Protestant either. Where did his code of morality emanate, was it a relativistic code of self-conduct, or influenced more by external standards of conduct, right and wrong, and ultimately righteousness?
We know that the Nazis practiced a near-religion of Aryan supremacy, which had antecedents in part from near-eastern and even Indian Aryan precursors, whether Nazis were ever directly conscious of those antecedents or not.
For Calmeyer, we know some of his relatives were involved with Theosophists, based on a certain Madame Blavatsky’s philosophies and prophesies in the early 1900’s. Theosophism was and is an intellectual/historicity cult, not principally Aryan-related, but also not at all Christian. Hans Calmeyer’s relatives on his mother’s side, the Brücks, were Theosophists, and his duplex-neighbor held weekly meetings including Theosophist intellectuals, which Calmeyer attended regularly, more likely as social and intellectual events than religious meaning for Calmeyer himself. Calmeyer was interested in the widest range of historical interpretation and debate.
