Sepp Rothwangl at a reading of the book "Sternstunde 2000"
Fifty years before the end of the millennium Sepp Rothwangl first saw the light of the
day. The youngest of three brothers, he spent his childhood, the years following the
untimely death of his father, mainly in the family forests of his native Mürz valley. The
young Rothwangl left his home to attend studies in Graz, which, due to unforeseen
circumstances, he was unable to finish. He was forced to come home, to run the family
business, as he continues to do today. Jobs in the restaurant trade and in pharmaceuticals
insured Rothwangl a way to earn his living and a means of keeping in touch with people. In
his youth he was constantly observing the customs of the rural population, a preoccupation
which eventually led him to the "Teufelstein", the Devilss Rock, a prehistoric calendar rock
("the Styrian Stonehenge") located in the Alps near Fischbach in Styria,
Austria. This discovery led Sepp Rothwangl to study time, calendars, astronomy and myths
intensively. Out of these studies arose new, controversial and exciting points of view.
Years of research into archeo-astronomy and myths, along with the written records of tradition
and customs connecting this research with the realities of the coming of the year 2000
allowed Sepp Rothwangl to compile an exceptionally interesting calendar. These works offer
insight into times past, human culture and civilizations, while opening the door to a new
time and its new world.
