THE WILLEHALM INSTITUTE PRESS FOUNDATION
In 1985, Robert Jan Kelder founded The Eremos Institute for Grail Research, in Arlesheim, Switzerland. The Institute moved to Amsterdam in 1986, where it changed its name, widened its scope and was commercially registered as The Willehalm Institute Press Foundation on February 25, 2005.
In 1999, the Institute published How the Grail Sites Were Found – Wolfram von Eschenbach and the Reality of the Grail by the former Swiss army officer Werner Greub and presented it in America, Canada and England. In this Grail research report it is developed that Wolfram von Eschenbach's source for his epic poem Willehalm and for his famous Grail romance Parzival, the ‘legendary’ Master Kyot the Provençal, was none other than Willehalm himself, historically known as the Franconian Guillaume d’Orange, patron saint of the knights and founder of the House of Orange in the South of France at the end of the 8th century.
The move from this book to Operation Twins by Slobodan Mitric, published in 2005, seems far-fetched. However, The Golden Tip may also serve to once establish that by helping to end the Cold War and free Europe from the dangers of nuclear catastrophes, the author has behind the scenes performed in our times a similar deed done in public by Willehalm, when as the supreme commander of the Carolingian army defending the Spanish Mark, he prevented the Christian occident from being trampled over and occupied by the invading Saracens. Only after the fulfilment of this precondition could on the thus liberated and safe-guarded Christian soil take place the event known as Parzival’s revolutionary self-enthronement as Master of the Holy Grail, described by Werner Greub as The Star of Munsalvaesche, a repetition of the Star of Bethlehem. Now the question is what manner of spiritual power of imagination can establish itself in a free and reuniting Europe. This power may be called the renewed Willehalm impulse and this ideal ought to be the driving force for the management of the Willehalm Foundation.
Three of the seven statutory objectives of the Willehalm Foundation are:
1. To perform and publish research concerning the life and work of Willehalm as, on the one hand, the supreme commander of the Carolingian army in the Spanish Mark in the 9th century and, on the other hand, after his retirement from active duty as the spiritus rector of the Grail events, so as to be able to properly evaluate his hitherto underrated role in the history of the Christian Occident with respect to matters of defence and security as well as the themes of spirituality and religion;
2. To perform research in order to demonstrate how the Willehalm impulse emerged at the beginning of the 20th century in Central Europe in a new form in the anthroposophy founded by Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), also called science of the Grail, with her social component, the idea of the threefold social organism: freedom in the cultural life, equality in the rights sphere and brotherhood in the economy. Also known as social organics: in the form of a science of world economy understood as the harmonious interaction between the production factors nature, work and capital to achieve fair, just prices.
3. To translate, publish, present and further the works of non-anthroposophical writers and fighter for freedom and justice, who also in the spirit of the Willehalm impulse are striving to bring to the fore on the one hand the true, the good and the beautiful in mankind and human society and on the other hand to expose and withstand the false, the bad and the ugly for what it is, or in Manichaean sense transform it.
