In a previous paper, we have shown how the classical and quantum relativistic dynamics of the Stueckelberg–Horwitz–Piron [SHP] theory can be embedded in general relativity (GR). We briefly review the SHP theory here and, in particular, the formulation of the theory of spin in the framework of relativistic quantum theory. We show here how the quantum theory of relativistic spin can be embedded, using a theorem of Abraham, Marsden and Ratiu and also explicit derivation, into the framework of GR by constructing a local induced representation. The relation to the work of Fock and Ivanenko is also discussed. We show that in a gravitational field there is a highly complex structure for the spin distribution in the support of the wave function. We then discuss entanglement for the spins in a two body system.
