Description
This collection preserves the life and teachings of Andrew Christian Lohr (1880-1960), a modern day mystic who lived in Southern California. William H. Allen, a professor of education, collected the material, in part used for a book on Lohr's teaching, Born of Water and Spirit: Teachings in Mystic Christianity (1990). Additional volumes were planned but not published.
Background
Andrew Christian Lohr was born in Amsterdam, Holland, on October 30, 1880. He grew up in a pious Huguenot family of French-German lineage. He experienced visions at an early age. Mary, as well as Jesus, would appear to him and provide comfort. He reported his consciousness could travel outside of his body, for example accompanying his uncle to Masonic ceremonies. Lohr had no formal education. He left for Paris at an early age looking for work and became an upholsterer. There he married a Dutch woman and had 2 daughters.
