COMPENDIUM OF WORLD HISTORY VOLUME 2 A Dissertation Presented to The Faculty of the Ambassador College Graduate School of Education In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree Doctor of Philosophy by Herman L. Hoeh – 1963
INTRODUCTION BY HERMAN HOEH
The first volume of the COMPENDIUM OF WORLD HISTORY exposed the radical new interpretation of history now taught on all levels of modern education. It revealed the fallacy of the “historical method.” It explained WHY God is left out of history.
Volume I restored the history of ancient Egypt, of Assyria and Babylonia, of Media and India, of Greece, Ireland and Britain. This volume completes that restoration. For the first time, in this second volume, the early history of Europe will be made plain. Its connection with the New World, with American Indian civilization, with the early
Biblical heroes is an astounding revelation.
EARLY HISTORY OF GERMANY
The time has come to reveal the true history of Europe.
The Germans for centuries have dominated the heartland of Western Europe. Because of the geographic position Germany’s transportation lines constitute the vital arteries of the continent. Without the beating of the German heart, Europe would lose its economic and political prominence in world affairs.
Ancient Roman writers would have us believe that the Germans in the Roman heyday were mere barbarians, an insignificant people roaming the forests of northern Europe.
Was this Roman report the whole truth? Were the ancient Roman writers keeping back from their people the facts of German history?
Rome conquered Spain, Gaul, Southern Britain, all North Africa to the Sahara, Illyria, Greece, Asia to the Euphrates. But Rome had to draw its boundary in the north along the Rhine. Why? Why was Rome not able to subdue all Germany? Why, after centuries of bloodshed, did Rome finally succumb to the hammer blows of the Germanic Goths and Vandals? It is high time we were told the true history of early Germany.
The origin of the German people in Europe is rooted in patriarchal times. The history of early Germany, suppressed by the Romans, was revived briefly in the German-dominated Middle Ages. But before the close of the seventeenth century not even the Germans remembered their past. It had been stamped out in the name of education and religion.
But not all was lost. From early documents and local traditions it is still possible to recover what has, in recent centuries, been buried under the rubble of modern educational superstition. The Germans themselves are in great part responsible for this condition.
They fostered modern historical concepts. They have tried to hide their past even from themselves — just as they did at the close of the Hitler era. If the Germans admitted to themselves and the world who they really are, all the world would recognize in Imperial Germany the reconstituted Assyrian Empire — once the terror of all the civilized world!
ANTIQUITY OF THE GERMAN REICH
Germany has set herself up as the bulwark of European civilization. Germany for centuries has claimed to stand as the wall of defense against the barbarism of Asia.
The German Reich long endured as the oldest political institution in Continental Europe. The German people called their Reich the Holy Roman Empire. It bore rule over Europe for a thousand years. This “Holy Roman Empire of the German People” was officially designated by the Church in the Middle Ages as “The Kingdom of God” on earth. Its citizens, the Germans, felt themselves true Romans and bearers of the Christian Reich or kingdom. They were therefore the chosen people of the Christian era, entrusted with a world-mission to be the protectors of Christianity.
German leaders and philosophers have never forgotten this notion of the Middle Ages that the German, in place of the Jew, has a special mission from God.
This strange concept, which lies behind modern political thinking in Germany, is plainly stated in the German work “Die Tragoedie des Heiligen Reiches” — in English, “The Tragedy of the Holy Roman Empire.” It is by Friedrich Heer. It is a remarkable volume. It lays bare the reason for the secret motives of the German to dominate Europe — and the world.
GERMANS SHAPE WORLD AFFAIRS
The story of the ancestry of the German people, and their role in prophecy, is one of the strangest stories ever written. It is gripping with interest, amazing — yes, astounding!
“The History of Germany,” writes Bayard Taylor, “is not the history of a nation, but of a race … Thus, even before the fall of the Roman Empire, it becomes the main trunk out of which branch histories of nearly all European nations, and … the connecting link between ancient and modern history. The records of no other race throw so much light upon the development of all civilized lands during a period of fifteen hundred years” (“History of Germany”, page iii).
Germany has contributed more military leaders than any other nation in history. Its governments have, in the past, claimed the right to rule the “Christian world.” The German State, from its beginning, has nearly always been a confederation of states — often an empire of German ruling over non-German. It is the German people who, more than once, have believed themselves to be the “Herrenvolk” — the Master Race.
The German people number over one hundred million throughout the world today. They are composed of numerous small tribes. Nations, remember, are families grown big. Take Israel as an example. The nation Israel descended from one man, Jacob (who was renamed Israel upon his conversion — Genesis 35:9-10). But Israel had 12 sons. His family therefore was divided into 12 tribes. One reads in the Bible about “the 12 tribes of Israel” — Judah, Dan, Ephraim, Levi, etc. (Genesis 49:28).
The same is true of the German people. Of all these tribes, perhaps the most famous name to Americans is that of the Hessians. The British hired numerous Hessians in their effort to put down the American Revolution which began in 1776. The Hessians were known to Roman historians by the tribal name “Hatti.” Other Germans bore the names “Alemani” “Suabi,” and “Quadi,” the “Casuri.” The Romans called them collectively Germani, meaning “War-men” (from the “Encyclopedia Britannica”, article, “Germany”).
But from where did all these Germanic people come? Here is the answer of history: “There can be no doubt that they came from the Black and Caspian seas,” states “Smith’s Classical Dictionary”, article, “Germania,” p. 361. Ancient historical records confirm this admission.
The Germans can be traced in historical records to the regions surrounding the Black and Caspian seas, which border on the ancient Biblical Mesopotamia. This is the region where civilization commenced and from where the patriarchs came!
THE ANSWER FOUND
Ancient German tradition claims that their oldest city, Trier, was founded by Trever or Trebeta, a son of Ninus, king of Assyria.
Trebeta war der Sohn des sagenhaften Assyrerkönigs Ninus und einer Chaldäerkönigin. Seine Stiefmutter wurde später Königin Semiramis. Diese vertrieb ihren Stiefsohn Trebeta aus ihrem Reich. Trebeta floh mit Gefolgsleuten nach Europa und soll um 2000 v. Chr. an der Mosel den Ort Trier gegründet haben. Diese Sage von Triers eponymem („namensgebenden“) Stadtgründer wurde erstmals 1105 in den Gesta Treverorum aufgezeichnet. Sein Grabmal glaubte man in dem später Franzensknüppchen genannten Grabhügel auf dem Petrisberg zu erkennen. Im Spätmittelalter führten auch andere Städte ihren Ursprung auf Trebeta zurück (z. B. Strassburg).
“The inhabitants of Trier maintain that their city is the oldest in all Europe,” writes Josef K. L. Bihl in his textbook “In deutschen Landen”, page 69. “Trier was founded,” he continues, “by Trebeta, a son of the famous Assyrian King Ninus. In fact, one finds … in Trier the inscription reading, ‘Trier existed for 1300 years before Rome was rebuilt.’ ”
Ninus, according to Roman, Greek and Persian records, was the first ruler who began the systematic conquest of the ancient world after the death of Nimrod. He established the Assyrian Empire as the chief power over Eastern Europe and Southwest Asia, reported Diodorus of Sicily in his History.
But how is it possible that the oldest German city, Trier, founded over 2000 years before the birth of Christ, should be built by a son of Ninus, the renowned King of ancient Assyria? What connection have the Germans with Assyria?
Jerome, who lived at the time when the Indo-Germanic tribes were invading Europe, provides this startling answer: “For ‘Assur (the Assyrian) also is joined with them’ ” (Letter 123, sec. 16, “Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers”; quote is from Psalm 83:8).
DID THE ASSYRIANS INVADE EUROPE?
Yes! Jerome said so! But how did he know?
He saw them! He was an eyewitness to their migrations from Mesopotamia and the shores of the Black and Caspian seas!
Now consider what Sylax, the author of the “Periplus,” who lived about 550 B.C., writes of the southern shores of the Black Sea: “The coast of the Black Sea … is called Assyria” (from page 261 of Perrot and Chipiez’s “History of Art in Sardinia, Judaea, Syria and
Asia Minor”, Vol. II.) From there the Assyrians moved north.
Only 300 years before Jerome, the Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder declared the “Assyriani” — the Assyrians — were dwelling north of the Black Sea (“Natural History”, IV, 12, page 183). But the Assyrians did not remain there. They are not there today. of course not — they migrated into Central Europe — where the Germans live today!
WHAT DID ASSYRIANS LOOK LIKE?
What did the ancient Assyrians look like? Here is the answer: “In the Zagros hills and across the plain to the Tigris, there lived a … fair-haired … people akin to the Guti (the Goths) who … remained in what was afterwards Assyria, the neighbour land to Akkad” (page 5 of “The Sumerians”, by C. Leonard Woolley).
When the ancient Greek writers wanted to distinguish the Assyrians and their Hebrew captives from the Arameans or Syrians, the Greeks often called both Assyrians and their Hebrew captives “Leucosyri” — meaning “whites” or “blonds” as distinct from the very brunette Syrians who still live in Mesopotamia.
WHY GERMANS CALL THEMSELVES “DEUTSCH”
The Germans do not call themselves “German.” They refer to themselves as Deutschen, and to their country as Deutschland. When the Assyrians or Germans appeared in Europe, they claimed Tuitsch as their ancestor! That is where the name “Deutsch” comes from!
“Tuysco, the most ancient and peculiar god of all the Germans … of this Tuisco, the first and chiefest man of many among the Germans, and after whom they do call themselves Tuytshen, that is, duytshes or duytsh people, I have already spoken.” So writes Verstegan in his 1605 publication entitled “Restitution of Decayed Intelligence: in Antiquities”.
Whenever a German calls himself Deutsch, he is therefore saying he is a descendant of Tuitsch (Tuisco or Tuisto in Latin). And when he terms his country Deutschland, he is saying his land is Tuitsch’s land. Who this Tuitsch is will be made plain in Chapter II.
WHAT LANGUAGE DID THEY SPEAK
European scholars have thoroughly studied the language of the land of Hatti — the ancestors of the Hessians. It is an Indo-Germanic tongue — numerous words of which were akin to Old High German. So many similarities were found that Edgar Sturtevant had to declare: “To me it seems incredible that so remarkable a situation developed in two languages independently. I feel compelled to trace the Germanic … to a common origin” with the language of Hatti — common tongue of the Assyrians in Asia Minor (from “A Comparative Grammar”, page 240).
Scholars admit that for centuries the language of the people who inhabited Assyria was not merely Semitic. Semitic was the late literary language of Assyria — the language of scholars, the language of international commerce. Modern historians and archaeologists
assume that the common tongue of all Assyrian people was Semitic. They have no proof.
So noted an Assyriologist as Sydney Smith admitted “… that the documents from Asia Minor and from east of Tigris are couched in Semitic dialects spoken by men unable to pronounce all the Semitic consonants …” (p. xi, from “Early History of Assyria to 1000 B.C.”).
The same circumstance occurred during the Middle Ages all over Europe. The language of almost all European scholars — and even their names — until the time of the Protestant Reformation was Latin — but Latin was not the common tongue of the people! Because most of the literature of Germany was in Latin during the Middle Ages does not prove that the common people spoke Latin.
SEMITIC BY RACE, NOT LANGUAGE
Asshur was a son of Shem. But after the tower of Babel, when the languages of the world were confused (Genesis 11), most Assyrians no longer spoke a Semitic tongue, but rather Indo-Germanic and related tongues! The Germans, therefore, are Semitic by race, but not by language!
In the days of Abraham, the Germans or Assyrians formed a great confederation of states or tribes, speaking several different languages (Josephus’ “Antiquities of the Jews”, book I, ch. 9). One king of the Assyrians — already discussed — was “Tidal, king of nations” (Genesis 14:1). The name Tidal is Indo-Germanic, not Semitic.
Most scholars have never been conscious of the fact that the use of the Semitic language in Assyria was due to the rising influence of the Aramaic people (Genesis 10:22) in Mesopotamia and certain of the sons of Abraham (“Antiquities”, book I, ch. XV, sect. 1).
So prominent did they become that Mesopotamia is called “Padan-Aram” — the plain of Aram — in the Bible (Genesis 28:22).
THE ANCIENT KINGS OF THE GERMANS
The settlement of the Assyrians and related peoples in early Europe is summarized by several writers in the early Middle Ages. The list of the early kings presented here is from the “Bayerische Chronik” and “Deutsche Chronik” by Johannes Turmair, Abensberg, 1526.
The traditional events assigned to each ancient German ruler are confirmed by both archaeological evidence and the fragmentary comments of classical historians.
The “Bayerische Chronik” is very important for the history of Central Europe. It proves that German history was correctly preserved in song and poetry and in contemporary written records down to Roman times. It further proves that the length of time from the Flood to Roman times was accurately preserved except for an overlooked 24 years. This period was the 24 years from Abram’s year 75 to his year 99. The later chroniclers, who placed in parallel German and Hebrew history, universally reckoned the 430 years from the Covenant that was confirmed with Abraham to Sinai as beginning when Abram was 75 years old, instead of 99. They therefore placed the Flood 24 years too late in history.
The German chronicles that were the basis of Turmair’s work placed the Flood 131 years before the coming of the German patriarch Tuisto into Europe. They should have reckoned 131 plus 24 — that is, 155 years. With this one exception, all dates from Tuisto down to the burning of Rome in 390 B.C. need no correction. All that is necessary is to add the separate lengths of reign. There are no missing lengths of reign.
German history commences with an extensive settlement of farmers in Europe from the Don River to the Rhine. The date of this migration into Europe from Mesopotamia and the Near East is placed at 2214 B.C. by German history — just 155 years after the Flood [=2369 B.C.] and 40 years after the Tower of Babel.
BEGINNING OF GERMAN OR ASSYRIAN HISTORY
The real beginnings of Assyrian history were not presented in Volume I. They are restored here. One account begins with the reign of Nimrod in 2194 — after the 60-year reign of Cush. Cush was the first Belus — the word means “lord” — who bore rule after the Flood.
Early Rulers of Lengths of Reign Dates
THE EARLY SETTLERS OF EUROPE
The “Bavarian Chronicle” records in detail the earliest settlers of Europe after the Deluge. Their encampments and habitations have been recovered by archaeological research and are labeled the “Neolithic” migrations that traversed the Danube and adjoining valleys.
Shem or Tuitsch came into Europe with members of his family, as well as with certain of the sons of Japheth and two of the sons of Ham who were of the white stock. From these have descended most of the present-day nations of Europe. The descendants of Shem include many sons of Joktan, son of Heber, and a number of the sons of Mash, son of Aram. The Biblical names (Genesis 10) of the grandsons and great-grandsons of Shem are clearly preserved in most instances by the “Chronicle”. In the following chart, together with the names of the patriarchal settlers, appear either the areas settled, the tribes which sprang from them, or their Biblical names. An historical or classical map should be consulted for location of geographic names. In later times the descendants of these early heroes migrated west, south, north and east under population pressure.
Dukes settled by Shem in Europe
KINGS OF ANCIENT GERMANY
In 13 B.C. Augustus made an attack against the Germans on the Danube. Later he settled 40,000 Westphalians, Hessians and Schwaben on the west bank of the Rhine.
Virtual anarchy now began to reign among the German tribes. There were anti-Roman and pro-Roman factions and these split whole tribes and even families. The ruling families soon killed each other off in family feuds and inter-tribal warfare.
The royal house that next dominated Germany came from the Sicambrian Franks. Their history appears later in the “Compendium”, chapter XII A.
ABRAHAM IN EARLY EUROPEAN HISTORY
For centuries students have been taught that Europe was one of late areas of the world to become civilized. Educational tradition would have us believe that Egyptians were erecting mighty temples of stone, had wide astronomical knowledge, knew how to write, thousands of years before Western Europe came to the threshold of civilization.
While Egyptians and Babylonians were arrayed in gorgeous robes and painted with cosmetics, historians would have Europe’s forests sparsely populated with naked white savages. Europe’s dominant place in world affairs is, we are told, a relatively new phenomenon.
Nothing could be further from the truth!
EUROPE’S EARLY HISTORY SUPPRESSED
European civilization — and its history — is as old as Egypt’s. But it has been suppressed. Not since the close of the seventeenth century has it been allowed to be taught publicly.
It did not happen in a day. It took centuries of calculated plotting and ridicule to wipe from the pages of history the record of early Europe. Historians and theologians have conspired together to label Europe’s early history as “myth.”
Their motive is plain. If theologians and historians had allowed the early history of Europe to be taught in schools and universities, they would have had to admit the authenticity and the authority of the Bible. THAT they did not want to do.
Had they not expunged the early events of Europe every one today would be reading of the journeys of Noah, Shem, Heber, Asshur and many other Biblical heroes into Europe.
Children would be reading in schools today of the early settlement of Assyrians and Chaldeans in Western Europe. They would know where the “Ten Lost Tribes” of the House of Israel migrated.
All this has been purposely hidden. But it has not all been lost. Scattered through the writings of scholars of the fifteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth centuries are fragmentary records which unveil what really happened in Europe. In museums and libraries, in state archives are still to be found documents of hoary antiquity corroborating the Biblical record.
This chapter contains the account of one of those documents. It is a history of the Danubian Valley — the area of Austria, Hungary, Bohemia, Bavaria and neighboring regions. The document is the “Oesterreichische Chronik” — the Austrian Chronicle. It has never before been rendered into modern English. A number of copies of the Chronicle are scattered throughout Europe. The last entry in the Chronicle is of the year 1404.
It was now 1942 — three years after Abram fled. Abram, according to the Chronicle, took Achaim and Susanna and went to the land of Judeisapta — “the Jews’ land” — Palestine, according to the Bible. (The later scribes who copied the Austrian Chronicle assumed it was the Danube Valley because Jews were later settled there also.) From Palestine Abraham sent away eastward to Assyria Susanna and Achaim (in Isaac’s second year). From there they journeyed to the Danubian settlement Abram made years before. The previous chapter revealed that the Danubian Valley was then under Assyrian hegemony.
The following sequence of landgraves and dukes is taken from the standard text of the “Oesterreichische Chronik” — the Austrian Chronicle. Variations in spelling are at times included. The lengths of reign and dates are in every case those of the Chronicle, which correctly preserves the chronology beginning three years before the call of Abram.
