The Feast of Sir Franz Hartmann

Sir Franz Hartmann

Sir Franz HartmannToday, August 7, is the Feast of Sir Franz Hartmann, who, according to the Invisible Basilica, “…was a Bavarian-American physician, occultist, and one of the co-founders of O.T.O., along with Carl Kellner, Theodor Reuss, Henry Klein and Charles Détré.” Also, “In 1902, Hartmann assisted Reuss in obtaining warrants from John Yarker to form a Sovereign Sanctuary in Germany for the Masonic Rites of Memphis and Mizraim, and to form a German Grand Orient for the Cernau Council Scottish Rite. Hartmann initially held high offices in both the Sovereign Sanctuary and the Grand Orient. In 1906, Reuss combined the two organizations under the umbrella of Kellner’s Ordo Templi Orientis, and Hartmann was given the title of ‘Honorary Grand Master of the Sovereign Sanctuary.’”

In his honor, we bring you this menu for a delicious Bavarian feast.
