At the beginning of the 20th century Guido List, the main pre-nazist esoteric ideologist, was the author of an anti-Semitic gnosis which concealed a secret message that historians have never fully caught: God created the world through His own sacrifice and entrusted the task to carry on His work of creation to the Arian-Germanic race. However, this mission was obstacled by Jewish people by creating a fictitious world that does not allow to get in touch with the lineage, the creation and the God concealed within it. The Arian-Germanic must therefore engage a mortal struggle against Jews; by doing so, Arian-Germanic would reach the "Sieg-heil" (the victory that ensure salvation) and would reunite to God. The article reconstructs List's esoteric gnosis and identifies its diffusion in the rising Nazist Party; it opens therefore a new perspective in the research on the mythological background of nazism.
