Illuminati and Lucis Trust (Lucifer Publishing Co.)

A Satanic Leader For A One World Religion, Part Of United Nations

The word "Lucis" comes directly from the name Lucifer, which means "the one who brings light," or, "light bearer." Webster's New Twenty-first Century Dictionary says: "Lucifer: light bringing, Satan, as especially the leader of the revolt of the angels before his fall." Not surprisingly, Lucis Trust's first name was Lucifer Publishing Co., but was later changed due to controversy.5 The purpose of Lucis Trust is the establishing of a "One World Religion." Lucis Trust's teachings have been translated into fifty languages. They have also published a "common prayer," formally called "The Great Invocation." Under the facade of love and goodwill, this dangerous New Age Organization lures many to the philosophy and doctrines of the occult. Today it has over 6,000 active members, with headquarters located in the United States, Germany, Great Britain, Holland and Switzerland. Source:

This is the leading, putatively respectable Britain-based Satan cult (it worships Lucifer). The Lucis Trust, which runs the only religious chapel at the New York United Nations headquarters, The Temple of Understanding, was originaly founded as the Lucifer Trust, in London, in 1923. The Lucis Trust associated with the UNO is the New York affiliate of the British organization. The name was changed from Lucifer Trust, to Lucis Trust, to make the nature of the organization less conspicuous.
The Lucis Trust's leading sponsors include the following prominent figures:
Henry Clausen, Supreme Grand Commander of the Supreme Council, 33rd Degree, Southern District Scottish Rite Freemasons
Norman Cousins
John D. Rockefeller IV The Rockefeller Foundation

The Spiritual Foundation of the United Nations
The Lucis Trust
By, Atrayu
The Lucis Trust is the Publishing House which prints and disseminates United Nations material. It is a devastating indictment of the New Age and Pagan nature of the UN. Lucis Trust was established in 1922 as Lucifer Publishing Company by Alice Bailey as the publishing company to disseminate the books of Bailey and Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society. The title page of Alice Bailey's book, 'Initiation, Human and Solar' was originally printed in 1922, and clearly shows the publishing house as 'Lucifer Publishing Co In 1923. Bailey changed the name to Lucis Trust, because Lucifer Publishing Co. revealed the true nature of the New Age Movement too clearly. (Constance Cumbey, The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, p. 49). A quick trip to any New Age bookstore will reveal that many of the hard-core New Age books are published by Lucis Trust.

At one time, the Lucis Trust office in New York was located at 666 United Nations Plaza and is a member of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations under a slick program called "World Goodwill". In an Alice Bailey book called "Education for a New Age"; she suggests that in the new age "World Citizenship should be the goal of the enlightened, with a world federation and a world brain." In other words - a One World Government New World Order.
The United Nations has long been one of the foremost world harbingers for the "New Spirituality" and the gathering "New World Order" based on ancient occult and freemasonic principles. Seven years after the birth of the UN, a book was published by the theosophist and founder of the Lucis Trust, Alice Bailey, claiming that "Evidence of the growth of the human intellect along the needed receptive lines [for the preparation of the New Age] can be seen in the "planning" of various nations and in the efforts of the United Nations to formulate a world plan... From the very start of this unfoldment, three occult factors have governed the development of all these plans". [Alice B. Bailey, Discipleship in the New Age (Lucis Press, 1955), Vol. II, p.35.]
Although she did not spell out clearly the identity of these 'three occult factors', she did reveal to her students that "Within the United Nations is the germ and seed of a great international and meditating, reflective group - a group of thinking and informed men and women in whose hands lies the destiny of humanity. This is largely under the control of many fourth ray disciples, if you could but realise it, and their point of meditative focus is the intuitional or Buddhic plane - the plane upon which all hierarchical activity is today to be found'. [Ibid. p.220.]
To this end, the Lucis Trust, under the leadership of Foster and Alice Bailey, started a group called 'World Goodwill' - an official non-governmental organization within the United Nations. The stated aim of this group is "to cooperate in the world of preparation for the reappearance of the Christ" [One Earth, the magazine of the Findhorn Foundation, October/November 1986, Vol. 6, Issue 6, p.24.]
But the esoteric work inside the UN does not stop with such recognized occult groupings. Much of the impetus for this process was initiated through the officership of two Secretary-Generals of the UN, Dag Hammarskjöld (held office: 1953-1961) and U Thant (held office: 1961-1971) who succeeded him, and one Assistant Secretary-general, Dr. Robert Muller. In a book written to celebrate the philosophy of Teilhard de Chardin (and edited by Robert Muller), it is revealed "Dag Hammarskjöld, the rational Nordic economist, had ended up as a mystic. He too held at the end of his life that spirituality was the ultimate key to our earthly fate in time and space". [Robert Muller (ed.), The Desire to be Human: A Global Reconnaissance of Human Perspectives in an Age of Transformation (Miranana, 1983), p.304.]
Sri Chinmoy, the New Age guru, meditation leader at the UN, wrote: "the United Nations is the chosen instrument of God; to be a chosen instrument means to be a divine messenger carrying the banner of God's inner vision and outer manifestation."
William Jasper, author of "A New World Religion" describes the religion of the UN: "...a weird and diabolical convergence of New Age mysticism, pantheism, aboriginal animism atheism, communism, socialism, Luciferian occultism, apostate Christianity, Islam, Taoism, Buddhism, and Hinduism".

The Aquarian Age Community
This Website is sponsored by the United Nations and the whole NWO philosophy is there. The page which explains the work of the Aquarian Age Community, as they call themselves, has this proud quote at the header of their page at
Such a grandeur is ahead!
Such a great step awaits a fiery affirmation.
Our teaching and the affirmation of the Higher
Principles will reveal so much that is great to humanity!
A great period is drawing near: Thus we do create together.
Fiery World
Vol. III, par. 149
Amongst the many 'enlightening' pages in this website, you can easily find 'fascinating' articles entitled:
"The New World Order and the Work of the UN"
"The World Spiritual Teacher, the Esoteric Community and the United Nations"
Preparing the Way for the Reappearance of the World Spiritual Teacher, the Work of the United Nations and the World-Wide Esoteric Community
This is not Christian theology but New Age paganism. You can also read the NWO quotes I posted, further down this page. Here's another by Curtis Dall, FD Roosevelt's son in law as quoted in his book, My Exploited Father in Law:
"For a long time I felt that FDR had developed many thoughts and ideas that were his own to benefit this country, the United States. But, he didn't. Most of his thoughts, his political ammunition, as it were, were carefully manufactured for him in advanced by the Council on Foreign Relations One World Money group... Brilliantly, with great gusto, like a fine piece of artillery, he exploded that prepared "ammunition" in the middle of an unsuspecting target, the American people, and thus paid off and returned his internationalist political support.
The UN is but a long range, international banking apparatus nearly set up for financial and economic profit by a small group of powerful One World Revolutionaries, hungry for profit and power.
The depression was the calculated 'shearing' of the public by the World Money powers, triggered by the planned sudden shortage of supply of call money in the New York money market... The One World Government leaders and their ever close bankers have now acquired full control of the money and credit machinery of the U.S. via the creation of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank."

Illuminati and Agenda 21

What is Agenda 21?  Agenda 21 is the comprehensive global plan of the Illuminati collective known as the United Nations to take control of land, food, water, cities, and much more through Sustainable Development.

Sustainable Development is a subset of a plan called Smart Growth.  Agenda 21 is the process of corralling the Product [Human Beings] into large cities, packed into high-rise communities where there are no private means of transportation, where you literally live in close proximity of your workplace so that you are easily shuffled into a sweat shop factory where you will simply do any work not manageable by a machine.

Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of the Illuminati New World Order clan with many tentacles¸ each tentacle attempting to further strangle freedom from ALL human beings in the 178 countries whose governments agreed upon this plan in Rio de Janerio, Brazil from the 3rd to the 14th of June 1992.

One tentacle of the Illuminati Agenda 21 plan allows the EPA to illegally grab land from local companies and private property owners.  This tentacle is implemented through Smart Growth which serves to limit where human beings can live.  When a city council passes an outrageous law that demands local businesses and private property owners hand over their land and property to the city, the are implementing Agenda 21.  Through the United Police State of America, we are seeing a slow transfer of regulation and power of transportation by means of government seizures under the Department of Transportation specifically focusing on railroads.  Why? High speed railroads would enable the Illuminati Masters to transport the human chattel quickly from one place to another.  It matters not if a municipality can afford this high speed railroad; it will be pushed through the state legislature regardless of affordability and funded by unwary taxpayers.  This comes under the heading of sustainable development.

What is sustainable development?  Sustainable development is a program that requires the integration of economic, environmental, and social components at all levels.  It is facilitated by continuous dialogue and action in global partnership and focuses on key sustainable development issues.  These key sustainable issues include Social and Economic components such as Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns, Natural Resource Management, Demographics such as Health and Health Settlements, Means of Implementation, and Regional Dimensions such as SIDS, Small Island Developing States.  The program is managed and promoted by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs; Division for Sustainable Development [DSD].

“Well, isn’t that special!” says the Church Lady.  Apparently, those who survive extinction via the Illuminati Chemtrail Cocktails and Poison Control Pharmacies will be herded through the Illuminati Agenda 21 System à UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs à who, though Smart Growth Planning à Implement Sustainable Development à resulting in life without hope or freedom.

Provided above is a simple overview of the Illuminati Agenda 21 New World Order Plan.  Much research has been accomplished in uncovering this massive plan of world dominance, the octopus with innumerable tentacles known as Agenda 21. This Illuminati New World Order plan is all-encompassing and designed to reach every corner of the world and each inhabitant therein.

When it comes to an agenda this large, it is difficult to know where to begin or how to fight it.  However, be aware there are programs in the works at the local level in your respective communities that need your attention and monitoring.

Illuminati Members

The Illuminati in this context refers to all of the secret societies and global elitist clubs. There are literally 100′s of such clubs. One stands at the pinnacle of all secret societies. It is known as “The Brotherhood.” Nobody has ever left this organization and shared the secrets…until recently.

Some of the most prevalent secret societies are: The Illuminati, The Freemasons, Skull and Bones, the Brotherhood, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Roundtable Group, Bilderberg Group, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Power Elite, the Bohemian Club, the Young Presidents Organization and dozens of other such organizations.

Although most of these secret societies are not so secret, what goes on inside them is kept secret. Many high level Illuminati members are also members of the most elite organization of them all: The Brotherhood. The Brotherhood keeps its very existence secret. The vast majority of the world’s billionaires are members of this “top secret” secret society. Members of many secret societies get invited to join The Brotherhood after they reach the highest level in their respective society. Past members of The Brotherhood include Andrew Carnegie, Aristotle Onassis and Henry Ford to name a few.

These types of organizations were organized hundreds even thousands of years ago for the purpose of networking amongst royal families, religious leaders and heads of industry…as well as the freethinkers who opposed them. Throughout history, wealthy elite families only married members of other wealthy elite families.

These families (generally 17) are still in charge of society today through many fronts. High level government officials, CEO’s of major multinational conglomerate corporations, heads of colleges, many religious leaders, military generals, titans of industry are all chosen and put in place by the specific design of Illuminati members.
These 17 families include:
1. Astor
2. Bundy
3. Collins
4. DuPont
5. Freeman
6. Kennedy
7. Li (Chinese)
8. Onassis
9. Rockefeller
10. Rothschild
11. Russell
12. Van Duyn
13. Merovingian (European Bloodlines)
14. Reynolds
15. Disney
16. Krupp
17. McDonald
The reach of these people stretches through all areas of society. From the production of food and basic necessities to commodities, to housing, government, medicine, to all industrial needs and banking institutions, to entertainment; this small group of people pull the strings to orchestrate world affairs to their liking.
Their main goal is to create a one world government with a slavery class to support them. Illuminati members want to reduce the global population to 500 million and lower the standards of living in all civilized nations.
The effects of this one world government are becoming more and more apparent. We see the pooling of nations via the United Nations. For example, the European Union, the upcoming North American Union, and the Asian Union and African Union are all coming to fruition through a shrewd design to divide and rule. Presidents of countries are picked months in advance. Citizens are made to believe that they have voting power, when in fact democracy is just an illusion.
All major global affairs are carefully planned and thought out by these Illuminati members. World events that most people see as chance or coincidence are actually a deliberate plan to dis-empower people and gain more control. A few examples of this are: the 911 “terrorist attacks” (which were a false flag operation designed to pass the patriot act among other things) and also the Indonesian tidal wave, hurricane Katrina, and the recent Haiti earthquakes were all caused by HAARP technology invented by Tesla.


Evidence of Illuminati or “illuminated ones” or “all knowing ones” is apparent throughout society. The pyramid and single eye design on the US one dollar bill is a prime example of Illuminati symbolism. The single eye or “all seeing eye” can be found everywhere in society especially in marketing and entertainment…from the winking eye logo of the Pepsi Company, to the pop culture music princess Lady Gaga covering one eye in nearly every photo to the America online logo and more. Illuminati ran corporations as well as religion and government being infiltrated are all too common.
Much knowledge is available and understood about Illuminati members, however the vast majority of the population is completely unaware of what is going on. There is a war between good verses evil, between tyranny and suppression verses individual freedom. Awareness is needed on a massive scale in order for good to prevail in this final war of the worlds.


2012 Predictions


Is the world going to end in 2012?

To enumerate there are 11 most researched 2012 predictions that can be found in the internet.
The Mayans have a very unique understanding of our solar system’s cycles. The most significant of which has much to do with the 2012 prophecies. The Mayans predicted that from 1999 we have 13 years to realize the changes in our conscious attitude and stray away from the path of self-destruction. We must move unto a path that opens our consciousness to integrate with all that exists. Their prophecy talks about 'The Time of No-Time' which is a period of 20 years. The last 20 years of the Sun's cycle of 5,125 years is from 1992 - 2012.
According to some astronomers, on 2012 our solar system will cross with the Galactic Equator which only happens every 26,000 years. Since the Mayan calendar began in 3114 BC, they had never experienced anything like this before thus giving more credibility to their 2012 predictions.
The Mayan Long Count calendar says the current age of mankind began on a day of destructive Earth movement and it will end on a day of destructive Earth movement. This day of movement could mean horrible earthquakes. It could also be translated to the missing planet Nibiru slamming into our planet.
Hopi prophecy and the Blue Star Kachina returning
“The end of all Hopi ceremonialism will come when a "Kachina" removes his mask during a dance in the plaza before uninitiated children [the general public]. For a while there will be no more ceremonies, no more faith. Then Oraibi will be rejuvenated with its faith and ceremonies, marking the start of a new cycle of Hopi life.” (Hopi prophecy is a religion, Kachina is a masked dancer during a Pueblo religious ceremony who is thought to embody some particular spirit, Oraibi is a Hopi Village in Navajo County).
These 2012 predictions means that World War III will start in the old countries like India, China, Islamic Nations and Africa. The United States will be destroyed by atomic bombs and radioactivity.
That time is not far off. It is represented by a blue star, far off yet visible.
The Hopi name for the blue star Sirius is Blue Star Kachina. Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky near Orion’s Belt and Planet Mars.
Aztec and Inca prophecies2012 Predictions
The Aztec 2012 predictions says that on the winter solstice of 2012, the noonday Sun exactly conjuncts the crossing point of the sun's ecliptic with the galactic plane, while also closely conjuncting the exact center of the galaxy. This means that our solar system appears to belong to another galaxy that is colliding with the Milky Way. Putting it all together, it implies the 2011-2012 events are natural cycles of maximum solar explosions which could scorch all or parts of the earth.
The Sybils Doomsday predictions
Sybil is a young girl that the mathematician Pythagoras trained to be a channel between himself as the seeker, and the God Apollo. Sybil became a priestess of Pythia (channel or voice of God). Some Sybilla prophecies were recorded on parchment and passed from generation to generation. The most talked about Sybil Prophecy of this age is the prophecy which mentions 9 periods of 800 years. The age after the ninth period is filled with doom and gloom.
Sybil’s 2012 predictions:
“The things in the tenth generation shall come to pass. The Earth shall be shaken by a great earthquake that throws many cities into the sea. There shall be war. Fire shall come flashing down from the heavens and many cities burn. Black ashes shall fill the great sky. Then know the Anger of the Gods.”
Revelations in the Bible for the end of days
The Book of Revelation is filled with strange and awesome imagery that is interpreted by many in different ways. The amazing symbolism runs throughout the rest of the book and of course it is highly debatable as to what is to be taken literally or symbolically. The Book says that judgements are released upon the earth in the form of seven trumpets, two witnesses, a dragon (the devil), the beast (the antichrist), the false prophet and the seven golden bowls. The judgements passed on to the Earth and its inhabitants include:
• Plague
• Earthquakes
• Hailstorms
• Fire
• Famine
• Meteor storm
• Lack of drinking water
Eventually the prophecy leads up to the antichrist assuming world domination with his false prophet overseeing the one-world religion. The antichrist is prophesied to rule the world for a period of time until the battle of Armageddon.
The prophecies of Merlin and Mother Shipton
The conclusion of Merlin’s Prophecies recalls the Book of Revelations in its apocalyptic vision and seems to open itself to astrological interpretation.
"The tail of Scorpio shall produce lightning and Cancer quarrel with the Sun. Virgo shall mount upon the back of Sagittarius and darken her virgin flowers. The chariot of the Moon shall disorder the zodiac and the Pleiades break forth into weeping. No offices of Janus shall hereafter return, but his gate being shut shall lie hid in the chinks of Ariadne. The seas shall rise up in the twinkling of an eye and the dust of the ancients shall be restored. The winds shall fight together with a dreadful blast and their sound shall reach the stars. "
It suggests that these words refer to cataclysmic weather conditions and that the vision will culminate in the 21st century, including it as one of the 2012 predictions. Disturbingly, this chimes perfectly with the predictions of some scientists on the effects of global warming.

Illuminati 2012

Whenever conspiracy theory is uttered, the mysterious "Illuminati" (enlightened ones) are most often named as being responsible. Ironically, however, while many, many people can presumably point those conspiracies to be belonging to the other conspiracy groups, the "Illuminati 2012 conspiracy" is always left hanging as some secret, shadowy entity which no one can quite describe. Interestingly too, no one can quite identify what specific acts can be attributed to them - everybody's got their own lists. But no one in 225 years seems to have succeeded to make the organization reveal their secrets.                                                 

Briefly, the background of the Illuminati puzzle is this. On May 1, 1776 (May 1st is “Grand Climax,” an important day for Satanists), in Bavaria, Dr. Adam Weishaupt, a professor of Canon Law at Ingolstadt University and a former Jesuit, formed a secret society called the Order of the Illuminati within the existing Masonic lodges of Germany. Weishaupt wrote his philosophy of Illuminism, which calls for a one-world government and religion that controls the population. It outlined that private property was to be abolished and that its master plan was to be carried out in secret. Since Masonry is itself a secret society, the Illuminati 2012 year, was a secretly mentioned within a secret society, a mystery inside a mystery, so to say.

The Illuminati’s was deeply at odds with the Catholic Church which condemned them wholeheartedly. Their short lived group was eventually banned in 1784 when Karl Theodor, the ruler of Bavaria, made all secret societies illegal. But because of Freemasonry's careless involvement and the misuse of Freemasonry by the Illuminati's founder who had become a Mason, the legends of its continued existence and influence persisted into the twenty-first century tying the organizations somehow together.

Some researchers claim that Weishaupt’s philosophies influenced the writings of the Communist Manifesto. Furthermore, claims are made that members of the Illuminati aided the rise of Communism. It is believed that the Illuminati have infiltrated European and U.S. positions of power and are behind the scenes influencing policies and world events. For example, The Order of Skull & Bones, a secret society based at Yale, is believed to be an American extension of the Illuminati 2012 end date. Members of the order include Averill Harriman, Prescott Bush, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and John Kerry. And now there are many speculations that the current US president is involved as well.

The Illuminati Evil Earthly Organization

Post Pictures Captured in Greece 2009
Open-minded people around the earth are experiencing an awakening to the domination of the evil illuminati. As evil government agencies and spinoff organizations develop its electronic wizardry dominating techniques, in addition to “cleaning up” to initiate the New World Order, the fabrication of “problems” clearly is identified by the opened-minded individual. Recognizing the evil intent of the world leaders, there should be no doubt that there is a powerful hidden source that controls world events, economy, the media, and agenda of the world governments.

Who are the Invisible and Primary Controllers of the World?

Jesus aptly taught that this entire world is under the domination of the darkness. The lower entities dominate this world along with their human cohorts. All the sages that attained a higher level of consciousness taught that this entire world is directly under the power of the darkness. An old phrase that labeled the earthy evil organization of the darkness is “The Illuminati”, which is the “shadow government”. Identifying the Illuminati should not be difficult to comprehend after thorough research.

The Very Beginning of the Dark Earthly Organization:

The beginnings of the earthly organization of the Lower Entities of the Darkness stems back to Cain and Able. Cain’s line became the evil human seed of the darkness through murder. After the flood, Canaan’s offspring and Lot’s daughter’s offspring of incest formed thirteen tribes of the Canaanites that issued as the dark seed of the Lower Entities. Canaan, Moab, and Ammon being born out of incest caused the human seed of the darkness into the earth. This incestuous bloodline among the elite binds the oligarchies. Canaan was cursed because Ham had sex with Noah’s wife, which defines as “seeing the nakedness of the father”
DSCN82851 The Illuminati Evil Earthly Organization.

Who is the  Illuminati?

The Illuminati is an all powerful entity of secretive societies that repudiate national boundaries. They act above the laws of all countries. They control every aspect of politics, corporations, every religion around the world, commerce and industry, banking, insurance, mining, the medical system, the drug trade, the petroleum industry, and the porn industry; a group answerable to no one but its members. Most foundations and think-tanks are facades, within the background they are pursuing the Illuminati agenda of the NWO. Any profitable enterprise that relates to grasping control over the public the Illuminati dominate. The Illuminati is in direct contact with their “masters” the lower entities. The Lower Spirit Entities dominate the Illuminati; satanic worship and supporting the Reptilian/Lower Entity agenda is a supreme attribute of the Illuminati that includes government “puppet” leaders.
Humans thrive on power, domination and secretiveness. The evil Illuminati structure of hierarchy resembles the pyramid, beginning with the “file and rank”, informers, runners etc, rising to the top councils of the “Grand Drude Council” and the “Olympians”, the mind controlling professionals.
This is a short overview of the Illuminati and that covert and direct mind control is occurring around the world. There’s tons of information on the Internet about the Illuminati. Through detailed research, the reader will understand the deep level of darkness that this world is subjected under. Within this realm of humans—the light is void out and replaced with direct satanic worship. Royalty and wealth are a captivating lifestyle, though the path of luciferic darkness will crouch at the door.
A short list of the organizations tied to the Illuminati:
DSCN78071 The Illuminati Evil Earthly Organization.
  • Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA)
  • The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)
  • The Bilderbergers
  • Trilaterals
  • The Zionists
  • Freemasonry
  • Bolshevism-Rosicrucianism
  • Skull and Bones; the majority of US Presidents are Bones Men, except for JFK.

The Bloodline of the Illuminati:

It is said that the Illuminati consist of 13 bloodline families that continually dominate politics that correlates with the blood families of the Euro/Anglo-Saxon Crown of the middle ages, and around the world. These Thirteen bloodlines must correlate with the Canaanites of incest. It was a commandment for an Israelites not to marry a Canaanite. The blood families of the Illuminati are genetically-related through incest. The primary goal of the Illuminati is mind control, world domination, and time travel for the service of their masters the lower entities. There are several stories of recovered mind control salves and from the writer of David Icke that the Reptilians/Grays/ShapeShiters interbred with humans that produces the thirteen bloodlines. This conjecture is apparently true, the mixed blood of incest among the nobel families of the elite within the Illuminati is a reality although these reptilians and greys are ET’s which are different than the lower entities. Moses command to not mess with blood, the commandment makes perfect sense because the powers of the darkness are obsessed with mixing, and drinking blood. The Reptilians get a cocaine high from human blood called adrenalchrome; blood is necessary for them to progress genetically and to have the ability to shape-shift. The Lower Entities feed themselves with human blood; the blood donors around the world are a food depot for the lower entities.
Through the Illuminati mind control programs, through splitting the core and the personality of an individual the lower entities can enter enter the lost dissociated core and reside within. Additionally, the Lower Entities can possess humans, or if not possessed, they are ardently appended to the individual. The Lower Entities can generate a form, mirrored or hypnotically preformed of the their true disgusting form. There should be no doubt that the blood families stem back to the Canaanites in addition to continual incestuous interbreeding among their family lines. This mixture of incest/reptilian blood is considered “Royal Blood”. Canaan existed before the first city state of Sumer.

The control of the media and popularity.

The controllers of the world strictly dominates media popularity. The famous “star item” of music, movies, and any type of a media broadcast are under scrutiny of the Illuminati. Anybody that is famous and popular sold out to the Illuminati on their rise to fame. Possibly explains the level of drug use; the popular star item clearly understands that they have to “Play Ball”, because the controllers of the world allow a person, group, or entity to become popular. “Playing Ball” can consist of agreement and accord without being “involved”; however, because of their influential music based on mesonic art, images, lyrics, they are deeply involved. There is no question why certain select musicians, actors, and Internet sites gain the spotlight. The databases of the popular Internet social and search sites will provide an indispensable resource during the short “Golden Age” of the NWO and the Antichrist.
Individuals that refused to “Play Ball”
  • John F Kennedy—Assassinated
  • Robert Kennedy—Assassinated
  • Martin Luther King—Assassinated
  • Princess Diana—Assassinated
  • John Lennon—Assassinated
  • Che Guevara—Assassinated
  • Ali Bhutto—Executed, Daughter Benazir Bhutto—Assassinated (Pakistan)
  • Malcolm X—Assassinated
  • William Colby—Former Director of the CIA—Murdered/Assassinated.
The long list exhaustive list of Assassinated/Murdered People.
“The CIA owns every one of any significance in the major media.” —William Colby
Anybody of popularity that acts as a threat, or decides to cause a deviation to the Illuminati agenda will be “taken out”. The story of John Lennon provides an example;  a popular person (especially a musician) can generate a large movement from thier influence of popularity.
The Man of Lawlessness (the antichrist, satan the accuser who is Baal in the ancient world of the Israelites) is the master of the lower entities and the Illuminati. The Illuminati and the governments of the world secretively worship their god—satan. The Bohemian Grove in California is a fine example of Moloch worship to “clear the conscience” by sacrificing an effigy. The ceremony is called “Cremation of Care”. All gatherings in its entirety that uses effigies, progressional ceremonies, and any type of ceremony that focuses on food and drink is under the control of the Lower Entities.

Illuminati Deception and 2012

Most people around the earth still view the disasters of 9-11, the earthquakes, airplane deaths, the death of popular people such as Michael Jackson as a part of life, it just happens. The Terrorists did it—9-11, “God” is causing the earthquakes—Haiti, an airplane malfunction—AF447. However, very few people are aware, nor do people consider the numerology behind the Illuminati of the Occult and the usage of Black Magic.
Please note: this article is not about the belief in the Occult, it is about the numerology and how the combined powers of the darkness use the numerology of the Occult to accomplish its agenda. The Occult does exist and is a very powerful entity for the governments and its agencies, secret societies, masonry, and all offshoots of the powers of the darkness. This can scare many people, but just understanding that the Occult uses numerology and symbolism all over the world can assist to comprehending the agenda of the NWO.
From researching the prime numbers of the occult in relation to 2012, there is a paramount reason why the world is popularizing the date of 12/21 2012 and the time 11:11. Without understanding the number system of the occult religion, the numbers of 2012 look innocent, we indeed don’t view the number 666 within the date. Well, this post will analyze the numbers of 12/21 2012 11:11.

The Numbers of the Serpent Occult Religion.

The most venerated occult numbers are: 3, 6, 9, 11, 13, and multiples thereof, especially 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77. A triplication of numbers is also considered sacred (possibly even more sacred) to the occultist: 111, 222, 333, and so fourth. The number 5 is the number of Death; also, an extremely scared number is the double 11, as in 11:11, or 11/11/11.
The number 7 and 12 are also an extremely important number universally. Seven is a number of complement and is considered a Divine number. Seven days in a week, seven colors to the rainbow. The occult will also use this number 7, but their favorite numbers are 11 and 6. The occult avoids using the numbers and multiplications of 4, 8, 10, and 12, unless they correlate with their numbers.

The 2012 Numerology?

The winter solstice in 2012 will occur 12/21 2012 and at 11:11 universal time.
The time is 11:11 that adds to 22.
The entire date: 12/21/2012 = 1+2+2+1+2+0+1+2= 11!
The date according to the Occult is really 11:11:11.
WOW, that means the date and time correlates with the triple power sacred number of 11:11:11.
The number 11 correlates with the letter K as in KKK = 11:11:11.
1+1+1+1+1+1 = 6; 11+11+11 = 33.
Also, 6+6 = 12, 3×7 = 21; the day and month 12/21 or, = 1+2+2+1 = 6 which adds 666 to the mix, from the month of 12.
The day of 21 is a multiple of 7×3 that signifies a time of complement.
2+1+2 = 5, the number of death; the year 2012. But, not the “end of the world” but the death of an old age into a new—the new world order.
All the numbers of the Occult are related to 2012; 3, 5, 6, 7, 11, 22, and 33 = 11:11:11.
So the day and month relate to 6 and to 666 (covertly), the year relates to 5 (death), and the time of the solstice relates to the power number of 11 doubled (activation). And, the day relates to 7 (time of complement). And, most importantly the entire dates adds to 11 that creates the triple 11:11:11 and adds to 33 (Illuminati Mason Pyramid of the 33*).
All the numbers of the Occult are involved with the 2012 syndrome. But, what is the meaning, and the deception behind 2012?


11:11 signifies the activation of a “new beginning”. Aquarius is associated with the astrological 11th house, the “water bearer”, a possibility of entering into the “Age of Aquarius”. The current age of Pisces, the two fish, possibly representing the battle between the darkness and the light of the last two thousand years. The Occult Serpent religion views a “death” and a new beginning as very important. Throughout the centuries the fertility worship of the spring equinox has held in place that dates all the way back to Sumer of 3500 BCE. Considering this history, the death of an old age, into a new age is extremely important, and this age will be the age of the dominance of the New World Order and the rise of the occult agenda. So considering the occult numerology about 12/21/2012 11:11, or more importantly, 11:11:11, we can be assured that startling events will take place around this time.

2012 and 666

Using the numbers of 2012 dividing by 666, the number is 3.021021021021. 2+1 = 3, the prime numbers of the Occult.
2012 divide 6 = 335.33333333.
2012-666 = 1346; Interesting, the date when the black death plague began. In Europe the date of the Black Death is said to have commenced between 1346 and 1348 from many different sources. Even of the plague started in Europe in 1347, the virus migrated from the East.
Let’s go back further, 1346-666=680.
October 10 680 CE: or 22nd Safar, 61 Hijra [680 CE].
Battle of Karbala: Shia Imam Husayn bin Ali, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, was decapitated by forces under Caliph Yazid I. This is commemorated by Shi’a Muslims as Aashurah. The event caused a division of Islam.
10/10=11, 6+8=14 a multiple of 7, 22nd Safar = a double 11, and 61 Hijra 6+1=7, which signifies a completed agenda.
And further yet: 680-666=14.
14 CE is the year the Augustus died, the Roman Ruler of 40 years (possibly murdered) on 8/19, 14 CE
8+1+9=18 which correlates with 666.
14 CE = 1+4=5, the number of death, or 1-4=3. It is said he died at 3.00pm which is 1500 = 3×5=15 or 1+5=6, but we don’t know if that was universal time.
The people of the Roman Empire worshipped Augustus as a god, including after his death.

11 Correlates with the letter K.

Before 12/21 2012 11:11 occurs, the date 11/11/11 will present itself. Correlating with the letters KKK.
Thus, while 11 is very important, multiplication’s are also important, such as 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, and 99. If you multiply 1111 by 1111 you get 1234321, representing a pyramid, and number 11 is a sacred number of the pyramid with the proportions of the great pyramid being of the ratio 7:11. So 11/11/11 which in on a friday will occur, and 12/21 2012 11:11, which correlates with 11:11:11 which is also on a friday the 6th day of the week according to the western calendar.
The Occult Satanists believe that a carefully planned event must be carried out according to the correct numbers, or it may not be successful. They go to great lengths to make an event occur according to the correct numbers. 11 is the essence of all that is sinful, harmful, and imperfect.
9-11 caused dramatic change and initiation of a war 11-01 = 111. It also transpires that 111 in numerology is a ‘power number’ related to fresh modes of thinking applied to new cycles in life‘s play. 111111 maybe a super power number doubling 111. 11/11/11 = KKK.
Take note, possibly nothing will occur on 11/11/11, although something occurring around this date is possible. Nothing occurred on 6/6/6. Occult behavior is based on deception and covert action.
November 1st is called “all saints day” or All Hallows, just after the Halloween (Hallows Eve) celebration where people put on masks, which is the celebration of the master (Baal) of the Lower Entities.
10/31 = 1+3+1 = 5, five is the number of death that correlates to Baal’s death of the spirit, and demotion (or new life) into the darkness. November 1st is a major day for the Occult, 11/1 = 111.
Understanding the importance and perception of how the Occult values “Death” and “New Life” is pivotal to understanding the agenda of the combined powers of the darkness.
The number 11 is extremely significant in 9-11; you can visit the Cutting for more information on the numerology of 9-11.

2018: The Complete of 70 years of Jewish Exile.

With so much focus on 2012, the date of 2018 is pushed into oblivion. 2018 is the 70 year complement of the Jewish exile—defining as—possessing a nation but no temple. For more information on this subject you can visit Time Table of the Antichrist.
May 14, 1948 the Jews proclaimed independence. 5 can stand alone, 1+4 = 5; 1+9+4+8=22, or add the entire date 5+5+22 = 33.
33 and 22 are the power numbers of 11. So two power numbers that relate to 11 from the date Israel proclaimed Independence.
The month of 5 may signify death—defining as death of the old and the 11′s signifies activation of a new birth.
The day 14 is a multiple of 7 that signifies a time of complement.
Israel’s flag is the six pointed star, or two pyramids, one standing upright and the other facing downward, the symbolism of the Occult such as the back of the American One Dollar Bill.
1948-2018 = 70 a time of complement correlates with exile of 586 BCE.
2018 = 2+1+8 = 11; The year of 18 = 6+6+6
2018 divide by 666 = 3.03003003003.
2018 divide by 6 = 336.33333333, instead of a 5 as in 2012 divide 6, there is the 6 with all 3′s.
Counting 2013 through 2018 = 6 years.
2018 is more of a significant date than 2012, but since 2012, possibly, is the death of an old age and birth into a new age, the occult is popularizing the event. In doing so, 2018 is pushed aside. The movie, The Terminator that debuted in 1984, and since then created three more movies, coined 2018 as judgment day. Yet, within the context of the movie “the judgment day” was only a beginning, this context may correlate with 2012.
From 9-11 destruction 9/11/2001 to 12/21/2012 = 11 years and 101 days, From 9/11/2012 to 12/21/2012, began counting on the 9/12 equals 101 days. 11 years and 101 days = 11:11 the power number of 22.
1111 days before the 2012 solstice is the date 6-12-09. The fact that 6, 9, and 12 are sequential multiples of 3 of perhaps the most highly regarded number of the date is 3 can be a notable fact or the power number of 33 = 11:11:11 the occult date of 12/21/2012 11:11.
The number 11 link returns when we divide 33 by 3 which of course give us 11 once again.
In 1991/1992 the number 11:11 was issued to humanity as an activation number. The 9-11 destruction of the twin towers in New York activated the preparation era pointing the activation of the New World Order—the new age.
When we review the way in which the attacks of 9/11 occurred by the “11′s” and review the significance of “11″ in history there should be no doubt that 12/21 2012 11:11 is a significant date. The Twin Towers symbolized the number 11.
9-11 activated the preparation stage of the New World Order. 11 years and 101 days = 11:11, to 12/21/2012. 2012 is the activation key to the reality of the New World Order.

The Possibilities of Deception and the Reality?

The Deception of 2012 is propaganda of an ideology from the occult that the world media is teaching. The truth to unravel is the occult definition of “end-of-the-world saga”, or an “awakening”. The occult definition is the old system of government duality into the beginning of the New World Order, and possibly the Age of Aquarius—the reference is of death and rebirth. The mind-set to to cause fear and panic and deluded humanity from the true agenda. From the numerology that is presented—the occult is using 2012 as an beginning to their “New Age” of fascist domination of the New World Order, however; the illuminati could cause a false reality that perceives that the world will end, but then generate a “savior” and strong possibly of an alien presence. Producing an alien savior, then causing manipulation between the aliens and humans that generates are war is highly possible—then the Antichrist can arrive and save the world from the alien war, although the entire situation is staged. Then in 2018, the end of the 70 year exile, the Jews can build their temple (or possibly before), because the aliens will have bombed the temple area. The New World Order will be in full swing establishing their “One God” the antichrist, and possibly the complement date could be 2020.
A Possible Theory of 2020: Time of Complement?
2020 = 22—a power number of 11.
By counting 2013 through 2019, but not counting 2020 = 7.
2020 divide 6 = 336.666666
2020 divide 666 = 3.033033033033

Defining the Numerology of 2012

There should be no doubt that 12/21 2012 11:11 is a doorway to the beginning of the Age of Aquarius and the New World Order. The Delusion of the New Age Movement was designed to deceive spiritual seekers from the truth. The truth of the matter is that “the change of age” will be the powers of the darkness dominating and enslaving humanity. It is a New Age for the Illuminati and the combined powers of the darkness. The New Age perception of “ascending or awakening” is a delusional form of deception; the awakening will be the separation of the light from the darkness. The ideology of the New Age syndrome is deceptive falsehood. The Age of Aquarius is negative for this earth, however; for the people that are truly spiritually awake this change is positive because it means freedom from the clutches of the darkness. The separation of the light from the darkness will require death for people with a disposition to the light, but through that death the person will be saved from the enslavement of the darkness and enter the kingdom of the light: the only requirement is Faith.

Michael Jackson was pronounced dead at 21:26 UTC.
2+1+2+6 = 11. MJ was a summer solstice sacrifice for the darkness. The combined powers of the darkness thrive and gain energy from the emotional energetic attachment of humanity. It was the same case with Princes Diana; a major outcry of grief, sorrow, depression, sadness, and anger of the collective consciousness of humanity sends emotional energy to the powers of the darkness.

Startling Review Of Use Of “11″ In History

Common Themes: War, Violence, Struggle.
The below information is copied and edited from the Cutting
When the Illuminati ended the First World War, they had just successfully completed the first war of the occult plan to produce the Antichrist. Thus, they deliberately ended World War One on the 11th Month [November], the 11th Day, at the 11th hour. The signing of the Armistice agreement was thus undergirded by three elevens!
When the Illuminati assassinated President Kennedy, he was killed according to the occult number signature of eleven [11]. He was killed in the 11th month, on the 22nd day, and on the 33rd parallel. He was also killed in the Masonic Dealey Plaza.
  1. September 11, 1609 — The explorer Henry Hudson sailed into New York harbor and discovered Manhattan Island and the Hudson River, the very location on which the Twin Towers were constructed!
  2. September 11, 1941 — Construction officially began at the Pentagon. [Ibid.] Thus, 60 years later to the day, the Pentagon is attacked. The number “6″ is an important number to the occultist. The number of man is “6″; the number of man’s “perfect” government is “66″ and the number of the perfect leader of all time is “666″.
  3. September 11, 1972 — The world was introduced to terrorism at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games. . There were 121 participating countries (11X11=121), and 11 Israeli athletes were killed. Exactly 29 years (2+9=11) after this terrorist horror ended, another more despicable horror occurred – the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
  4. September 11, 1772 — About 300 Indians and 50 British soldiers began the siege of Fort Henry. Researchers and historians of this siege are puzzled by the meaning of a comment in a document describing these events. It was recorded in a letter written by Lydia Cruger (11 letters), and it seems a fitting comment to this section. She wrote, “The siege commenced about sun an hour high, Monday, 11th, at all events, the 11th.” [Ibid.]
  5. September 11, 1776 — A failed peace conference with the British was held. The war that had begun on April 19, 1776 [the first day of the 13-day Satanic celebration, "The Bloody Sacrifice of the Beast"] continued. [Ibid.] After the fall of New York to the British, a Peace
Conference was held between General Howe and three prominent representatives of the Continental Congress – Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Edward Rutledge. After taking the Americans key city, Howe thought he was entitled to a peace settlement. The Americans, having declared independence in July, considered separation from England as non-negotiable. The conference of Sept. 11, 1776, ended and the war continued for seven years.
  6. September 11, 1777 — The first day the American flag was used in battle at the Battle of Brandywine. [Ibid.] The British defeated the Americans, led by George Washington, but Old Glory flew for the first time!
  7. September 11, 1922 — Despite Arab protests, a British mandate is proclaimed in Palestine on September 11, 1922. The mandate came into effect at the end of September 1922. [Ibid.] Not only was this proclamation made on a September 11, but the year formed a twice “11″ — (11×2)
  8. September 11, 1941 — The US 1st Army crosses the border into German territory. Also, the Quebec Conference was held between England’s Prime Minister, Winston Churchill. [Ibid.]
  9. September 11, 1973 — Chilean President Salvador Allende is killed in a brutal, violent military coup led by General Augusto Pinochet. [Ibid.] Henry Kissinger was strongly implicated in this attack, and if he were to ever stand trial in an International Court, he would be charged with masterminding this coup and ordering the assassination of Allende.

Es complicado reseguir la propagación de la francmasonería desde las Islas Británicas hasta el continente y el ulterior desarrollo de aquélla en Europa. En buena parte contribuye a la dificultad el afán de la moderna «corriente principal» de la masonería, consistente en marcar distancias con respecto a sus orígenes esotéricos. Además no se encuentran historiadores dispuestos a tomarse en serio el tema.

En Francia las primeras logias masónicas oficialmente reconocidas se establecieron poco después de 1720, bajo el control de la Gran Logia de Inglaterra. En la época, no obstante, existían ya logias en Francia cuyo origen se retrotrae a la presencia de partidarios (sobre todo, escoceses) de Carlos II, quienes le acompañaron en el exilio durante el decenio 1651-1660.
Por consiguiente, la Historia de la masonería en Francia debe distinguir dos corrientes distintas, la descendiente de las logias inglesas (que formaron en 1735 su propia Gran Logia en París), y la derivada de las logias escocesas, en lo que alternan períodos de mutua hostilidad con los intentos de reconciliación. La fundación de la Gran Logia de Francia en 1735 supuso una ruptura con la Gran Logia inglesa, siendo el desacuerdo debido precisamente a que Londres no veía bien que «sus» logias tuviesen buenas relaciones con las escocesas.

Parece que la masonería escocesa permaneció más próxima al carácter originario de la francmasonería como sociedad secreta ocultista, mientras que en Inglaterra se convirtió en una asociación de ayuda mutua, o sistema de reparto de recomendaciones, o una sociedad filosófica en el mejor de los casos. Desde luego la masonería escocesa tuvo siempre un carácter marcadamente oculto.

La creación de la Observancia Templaria Estricta por el barón von Hund hacia finales del decenio de 1740 significó una nueva evolución dentro de la francmasonería escocesa. El mismo Von Hund decía tener autoridad delegada por miembros de los partidarios de los Estuardos exiliados en París. Este círculo estaba centrado alrededor de Carlos Eduardo Estuardo (1720-1788), el llamado «Joven Pretendiente». Si aquella afirmación fuese cierta —y los estudios recientes tienden a corroborar que lo era—, entonces este sistema derivaría de los mismos círculos que la ya existente obediencia escocesa.

Aunque Von Hund fue recibido en París y empezó a promover en Francia su nuevo sistema, la mejor acogida de la Observancia Templaria Estricta aconteció en su Alemania natal, donde fueron conocidos al principio como los Hermanos de san Juan el Bautista. (El título de «Observancia Templaria Estricta» no lo adoptaron hasta 1764 en realidad, ya que anteriormente el sistema en sí se denominaba sencillamente «masonería rectificada».) Von Hund creó la primera logia alemana, la de los «Tres Pilares», en Kittlitz, el 24 de junio de 1751, día de san Juan Bautista. Las logias alemanas tuvieron estrechos vínculos con las sociedades rosacruces, en especial la Orden de la Cruz Oro y Rosa (véase el capítulo 6).
En 1773 se creaba en Francia el Gran Oriente, una autoridad rival de la Gran Logia. El punto principal de discrepancia entre ambos sistemas era la admisión de mujeres en la francmasonería: el Gran Oriente admitió logias exclusivamente femeninas. Pero luego el Gran Oriente sufrió un considerable trastorno debido a lo que se entendió era un intento de absorción por parte de la Observancia Templaria Estricta. Lo cual suscitó fuerte oposición, en parte por nacionalismo ya que consideraban a ésta un sistema extranjero, peor aún, alemán.
De resultas de todo esto se creó en 1804 un nuevo sistema «escocés», el Rito Escocés Antiguo y Aceptado (que luego llegó a tener gran aceptación en Estados Unidos). (Para dificultar todavía más la cuestión actualmente existe una Gran Logia Nacional Francesa, a no confundir con la Gran Logia de Francia; aquélla, aunque minoritaria en cuanto a número de logias representadas, se halla en alianza con la Gran Logia inglesa.)

En 1761 Martinès de Pasqually (1727-1779) fundó otra forma de francmasonería oculta, la Orden de los Cohen Electos. Muy pocos antecedentes constan acerca de Pasqually, excepto su probable origen español. Algunos estudiosos creen que tuvo relaciones con los dominicos, y dada la tradicional vinculación de esta orden con la Inquisición pudo consultar materiales, heréticos y mágicos en los archivos de ésta. También pudo presentar, a demanda de la Gran Logia de Francia, unas credenciales otorgadas a su padre por Carlos Eduardo Estuardo, lo cual le relaciona con la masonería escocesa que avaló al barón Von Hund.1

De Pasqually tuvo un secretario llamado Louis Claude de Saint-Martin, que llegó a ser importante e influyente filósofo ocultista al que llamaban el «Filósofo Desconocido». Saint-Martin formó un nuevo sistema de masonería escocesa, el Rito Escocés Reformado, el cual se unió a la rama francesa de la Observancia Templaria Estricta durante la Convención de 1778 en Lyon. Fue ésta una asamblea de masones de rito escocés a la que acudieron también representantes de la francmasonería suiza. La fuerza motriz principal del encuentro de Lyon fue Jean-Baptiste Willermoz (1730-1824), que también era miembro de los Cohen Electos. Allí se unificaron bajo el nombre de Rito Escocés Rectificado los de Von Hund y los de Saint-Martin, como queda dicho.
(La filosofía de éste, el martinismo, fue una influencia preponderante en el resurgimiento del ocultismo francés a finales del siglo XIX, sobre todo en relación con los grupos «rosacruces» que hemos comentado en el capítulo 7, y las relaciones entre las órdenes martinistas y el Rito Escocés Rectificado siguen siendo estrechas a la hora de escribir estas líneas.)

La Observancia Templaria Estricta fue abolida en la Convención de Wilhelmsbad (1782), reconociéndose como legítimo el sistema del Rito Escocés Rectificado (que era, en esencia, la Observancia Estricta bajo un nuevo nombre y con adición de algunas creencias martinistas).
La Observancia Templaria Estricta sobrevivió también a través de su influencia sobre otra forma de francmasonería «oculta», los Ritos Egipcios creados por el conde Cagliostro (véase el capítulo 7). Después de ser admitido en 1777 a una logia de Londres (Esperance 369) de la Observancia Estricta, Cagliostro desarrolló su propio sistema, que incorporaba ideas alquímicas y otras aprendidas de grupos ocultos alemanes. En 1782 creó la «logia madre» del Rito Egipcio en Lyon. Rasgo distintivo de este sistema, aparte el empleo de simbolismos tomados del antiguo Egipto, era la igualdad funcional de la mujer.

También es significativa la fecha fundacional de este sistema. Los incrédulos atribuyen la fundación de la francmasonería de rito egipcio a la moda europea de todo lo egipcio causada por la campaña de Napoleón (durante la cual fue descubierta la famosa piedra Rosetta); sin embargo esa aventura egipcia fue en 1789-1799, posterior a la instigación del sistema masónico.

En 1788 se creó en Venecia el Rito de Misraïm bajo credenciales otorgadas por Cagliostro, y en 1810 lo llevaron a Francia los tres hermanos Michael, Joseph y Marcus Bedarride, oriundos de Provenza.

Éstos crearon un Gran Capítulo en París e iniciaron negociaciones para unirse al Gran Oriente. También establecieron relaciones con el Rito Escocés Rectificado, lo cual implicaba el reconocimiento del origen común de ambos sistemas en la Observancia Templaria Estricta. Los cuatro grados máximos del Rito de Misraïm recibieron el nombre de Arcana Arcanorum.

Otro rito egipcio importante fue el de Menfis, creado en Montauban en 1838 por Jacques-Etienne Marconis de Nègre (1795-1865), que había sido miembro del Rito de Misraïm. También este sistema estaba estrechamente relacionado con el Rito Escocés Rectificado.

En 1899 Gérard Encausse (Papus) unificó los Ritos de Menfis y de Misraïm, tras haber fundado y dirigido una Orden Martinista (véase el capítulo 7).

Así pues, el Rito Escocés Rectificado, los Ritos Egipcios y las órdenes martinistas forman un grupo de sociedades interconectadas con origen común en la Observancia Templaria Estricta del barón Von Hund —que deriva a su vez de los caballeros templarios de Escocia— y las logias rosacruces de Alemania.


Mientras preparábamos el original definitivo de este libro, Rennes-le-Château regresó a los titulares con la publicación de The Tomb of God, de Richard Andrews y Paul Schellenberger (1996). El libro exponía una tesis muy polémica, según la cual el secreto descubierto por el sacerdote Bérenger Saunière fue la localización de la sepultura de Jesús, nada menos, que según creen los autores es el Pech Cardou, una montaña sita precisamente cinco kilómetros al Este de Rennes-le-Château.
Puesto que figura entre los dogmas del cristianismo la creencia de que Jesús ascendió corporalmente a los cielos, naturalmente no debería quedar nada que sepultar. La propia idea de que exista un cuerpo de Jesús, dondequiera que sea, no puede ser más escandalosa y peligrosa para la cristiandad ortodoxa.

En sí no es nueva la proposición de que la tumba de Jesús se encuentre en Rennes-le-Château, o mejor dicho viene a ser una especie de lugar común en Francia, donde circulan ya dos libros y media docena de tesis inéditas, por lo menos, que pretenden lo mismo aunque propugnando en cada caso localizaciones diferentes. (Se ha sugerido incluso que el último reposo del Hijo de Dios podría encontrarse debajo de los lavabos públicos del estacionamiento de coches en Rennes-le-Château.)1
La idea deriva de lo que se intuye debe ser la suma importancia del tan rumoreado secreto, y la creencia común de que tiene algo que ver con una tumba (como lo indica, por ejemplo, el cuadro de Poussin Los pastores de Arcadia, cuyo asunto principal es una tumba.)

¿Prometen las teorías de Andrews y Schellenberger despejar el misterio de Rennes-le-Château? Ellos fundan sus conclusiones en el descubrimiento de unas complicadas estructuras geométricas ocultas en los dos «pergaminos en clave» que supuestamente halló Saunière, así como en varios cuadros relacionados con el asunto, como el ya mencionado de Poussin, Pastores de Arcadia. Todo ello lo interprelan como un conjunto de «instrucciones» que, trasladadas a un mapa de la comarca de Rennes-le-Château, señalan el emplazamiento de Pech Cardou como el lugar donde se encontrará el «secreto».

Lo cual plantea un montón de problemas, para expresarnos moderadamente.

En primer lugar, y si bien es cierto que el «código» geométrico se encuentra en muchas de las obras —aunque no en todas ellas—, no está demostrado en absoluto que respondan a la intención de servir como mapas. Podrían tener algún otro significado esotérico basado en los principios de la geometría sacra. En segundo lugar, y aunque estuvieran en lo cierto, el razonamiento que aducen para aplicar dichas «instrucciones» en la manera que lo hacen es oscuro, y no pocas veces arbitrario. En realidad la única vinculación entre la geometría y el paisaje real pasa necesariamente por los pergaminos, y éstos, como hemos visto en el capítulo 8, son de procedencia más que dudosa.

Y aun suponiendo que Andrews y Schellenberger hayan acertado en cuanto al lugar, la deducción final —según la cual el secreto consiste en que es Jesús el que está enterrado ahí— es de una debilidad notable. Como cuando interpretan el famoso mensaje «Manzanas Azules» como una serie de instrucciones cuyo objetivo final consiste en hallar esas pommes bleues. Ellos afirman que esa expresión, de la que depende buena parte de su concatenación argumental, significa «uvas negras» en la parla de los lugareños.
Pero hay que hacer hincapié en que no es así, y aunque lo fuese, el salto lógico que aventuran entre pommes bleues y la persona de Jesucristo es más bien vertiginoso. Los autores nos dejan atónitos cuando escriben con acentos de gran perentoriedad acerca del «simbolismo del cuerpo inherente en el mensaje pommes bleues [...]»,2 y en otro lugar aseguran sin ambages: «de las uvas que simbolizan su cuerpo [el de Jesús], las pommes bleues».3

El razonamiento queda corroborado según los autores por su propia interpretación del lema Et in Arcadia ego... Dicen que es menester completarlo con la palabra sum, con lo que viene a decir la frase «y en Arcadia estoy yo», que luego transforman en anagrama de «estoy tocando la tumba de Dios, Jesús» (Arcam Dei tango, Iesu). Pero eso depende de que sea en efecto un anagrama y de la validez de la palabra añadida.

Andrews y Schellenberger interpretan el mensaje «Manzanas Azules» como una serie de referencias a varias localidades que al unirlas en un mapa configuran un cuadrado perfecto. Se trata de unas interpretaciones muy forzadas, sin embargo. Por ejemplo, la cifra latina que da 681 se entiende como la cota de altitud de un punto que se halla al nordeste de Rennes-le-Château. Pero ésta sólo figura como tal en la edición actual del mapa IGN (el equivalente de nuestro Instituto Geográfico Catastral).
Todas las demás ediciones y un cartel en el mismo lugar dan la altitud correcta en 680 metros. De esta circunstancia sacan Andrews y Schellenberger la conclusión de que algún «iniciado» del Institut Géographique National retocó la edición actual para que concordase con el mensaje. (¿No habría sido más fácil citar la altitud correcta desde el principio?)

Luego Andrews y Schellenberger pasan por alto que el mensaje codificado sea un anagrama perfecto de la inscripción en la lápida de Marie de Nègre, que data de 1791. De manera que los autores del código habrían conseguido una hazaña extraordinaria, la de convertir una inscripción del siglo XVIII en un mensaje que indica con exactitud esos cuatro lugares... uno de los cuales tiene una altitud expresada en unidades de medida modernas, y el otro es un viaducto construido después de 1870.

Aparte la tortuosidad del razonamiento han prestado excesivo crédito a varias falacias bien conocidas en relación con el asunto Saunière. Por ejemplo, se hacen eco del rumor de que Marie Dénarnaud encargó el ataúd de Saunière varios días antes de la muerte de éste, cuando aún se hallaba en buen estado de salud, si prescindimos de los abusos con que había arruinado su constitución. Actualmente es bien sabido entre todos los estudiosos del caso de Rennes que la anécdota deriva de una lectura errónea del recibo con que se pagó el ataúd, al confundir 12 juin (junio) con 12 jan (enero).

Al comienzo cuentan los autores que el misterio les llamó la atención por las enigmáticas y sospechosas muertes de los tres curas de la región: el mismo Saunière y los abbés Gélis y Boudet. Dan a entender Andrews y Schellenberger que los tres murieron asesinados porque conocían el gran secreto. Sería tema para una buena novela policíaca, en efecto, si no fuese porque sólo uno de dichos sacerdotes murió asesinado, el abbé Gélis. Como hemos mencionado, el estilo de vida de Saunière le garantizaba un fallecimiento relativamente prematuro, y Boudet murió de muerte natural a edad avanzada (en una residencia para jubilados, nada misteriosa).

Así que esta solución al recalcitrante misterio de Rennes-le-Château tampoco satisface, a fin de cuentas, pero ¿es defendible la hipótesis acerca de los restos de Jesús?

Andrews y Schellenberger proponen tres desarrollos alternativos: Jesús sobrevivió tras la crucifixión y huyó a las Galias, donde vivió el resto de sus días. O bien su familia y/o los discípulos llevaron sus restos a Francia. O los templarios descubrieron los susodichos restos en Jerusalén y los llevaron al Languedoc. Aunque ninguno de ellos es imposible, los autores no plantean ninguna prueba directa ni indicio convincente.

La idea de que Jesús estuviese enterrado en el sur de Francia es plausible, aunque podríamos aducir que lo resulta más dentro del contexto de nuestras conclusiones. Cabría que la Magdalena se llevase el cuerpo de Jesús, o incluso que éste la acompañase en vida. (A la manera característica de la corriente principal cristiana, ni Andrews ni Schellenberger hacen ningún caso de ella.) Pero no se encuentra indicio ni siquiera de una tradición que abonase esa idea; todas las tradiciones existentes dedican todo su énfasis a María Magdalena. La clandestinidad herética del sur de Francia era y es, primordialmente, un culto a la Magdalena, que no a Jesús.

Ahora bien, si llegasen a encontrarse unos restos que pudieran ser los de Jesús, ¿cómo se establecería una identificación rigurosa? Una vez más Andrews y Schellenberger aplican al problema su peculiar género de lógica. Cuando acaban de describir el tipo de sepultura que daban los judíos del siglo I (ya que para ellos Jesús fue un judío esenio), consistente en recoger los huesos una vez descompuesto el cadáver y pasarlos a una urna de piedra o un osario, se ponen a hablar inopinadamente del cuerpo embalsamado de Jesús (y también observan que los templarios conocían el método de embalsamamiento, lo cual no hace al caso: para salvar por ese procedimiento los restos de Jesús se habrían presentado más bien tarde). ¡Incluso proponen la identificación de los restos por cotejo con la imagen del Sudario de Turín!

Por supuesto cualquier género de especulación sobre la tumba de Jesús debe permanecer en el dominio de las intenciones piadosas hasta que aquélla haya sido realmente descubierta y estudiada. Andrews y Schellenberger no pretenden haberla descubierto, sólo dicen tenerla localizada. Por lo cual propugnan una expedición arqueológica a plena escala, que confían verificará su hipótesis.

Pero las tradiciones locales se ocupan primordialmente de otros dos personajes, que no de Jesús: María Magdalena y Juan el Bautista. A la luz de nuestra investigación, los rumores en cuanto a la presencia de unos restos de Cristo en la región seguramente se referirán a alguien mucho más próximo que Jesús a los corazones de los habitantes.

Freemasonry and Knights' New Dawn

As HUMAN HISTORY entered the eighteenth century, changes were occurring. The Inquisition was almost dead and the Bubonic Plague was dying with it.

Students of Masonic history know that the early 1700’s were an important period for Freemasonry. Masonic lodges in England had attracted many members who were not masons or builders by trade. This happened because Freemasonry was evolving into something other than a trade guild. It was becoming a fraternal society with a secret mystical tradition. Many lodges were quietly opening their doors to non-masons, especially to local aristocrats and men of influence. By the year 1700, an estimated70% of all Freemasons were people from other occupations. They were called “Accepted Masons” because they were accepted into the lodges even though they were not masons by trade.

On June 24, 1717, representatives from four British lodges met at the Goose and Gridiron Alehouse in London and created a new Grand Lodge. The new Grand Lodge, which was called by some “The Mother Grand Lodge of the World,” officially dropped the guild aspect of Freemasonry (“operative Freemasonry”) and replaced it with a type of Freemasonry that was strictly mystical and fraternal (“speculative Freemasonry”). The titles, tools and products of the mason’s trade were no longer addressed as objects that members would use in their livelihoods. Instead, the items were transformed entirely into mystical and fraternal symbols. These changes were not made suddenly, but were the result of a trend which had already begun well before 1717.

A number of histories incorrectly state that the Mother Grand Lodge of 1717 was the beginning of Freemasonry itself. As we have seen, Freemasonry’s roots were firmly established long before then, even in England. For example, one Masonic legend relates that Prince Edwin of England had invited guilds of Freemasons into his country as early as 926 A.D. to assist the construction of several cathedrals and stone buildings. Masonic manuscripts dating from 1390 and 1410 have been reported. Handwritten minutes from a Masonic meeting from the year 1599 are reproduced in Albert Mackey’s History of Freemasonry. Freemasonry was so well-established in England by the 16th century that a well-documented schism in 1567 is on record. The schism divided English Freemasons into two major factions: the “York” and “London” Masons.

The new Grand Lodge system established at the Goose and Gridiron Alehouse in 1717 consisted at first of only one level (degree) of initiation. Within five years of the Lodge’s founding, two additional degrees were added so that the system consisted of three steps: Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft, and Master Mason. These steps are commonly called the “Blue Degrees” because the color blue is symbolically important in them. The three Blue Degrees have remained the first three steps of nearly all Masonic systems ever since.

The Mother Grand Lodge issued charters to men in England, Europe and the British Empire authorizing them to establish lodges practicing the Blue Degrees. The colorful fraternal activities of the lodges provided a popular way for men to spend their time and Freemasonry soon became quite the rage. Many lodge meetings were held in taverns where robust drinking was a featured attraction. Of course, many members were also drawn into the lodges by promises of fraternity and spiritual enlightenment.

The new Mother Grand Lodge was reportedly very strict in its rule forbidding political controversy within the lodges. Ideally, Freemasonry was to be independent of political issues and problems. In practice, however, the Mother Grand Lodge, which was established only three years after the coronation of the first Hanoverian king, supported the new German monarchy at a time when many Englishmen were strongly opposed to it. One of the earliest and most influential Grand Masters of the Mother Lodge system was the Rev. John T. Desaguliers, who was elected Grand Master in 1719.
Desaguliers had earlier written a tract stating that the Hanoverians were the only legitimate sovereigns of England under the “laws of nature.” On November 5, 1737, he conferred the first two Masonic degrees on Frederic, Prince of Wales—a Hanoverian. During the ensuing generations, members of the Hanoverian royal family even became Grand Masters.*
* Augustus Frederick (1773-1843), the ninth son of George III, was Grand Master for the thirty years before his death. Prior to that, his older brother, who became King George IV, had held the Grand Master position. A later royal Grand Master was King Edward VII, son of Queen Victoria; Edward served as Grand Master for 27 years while he was the Prince of Wales. The most recent royal Grand Master to become a king was the Duke of York, who afterwards became King George VI (r. 1936-1952).
The English Grand Lodge was decidedly pro-Hanoverian and its proscription against political controversy really amounted to a support of the Hanoverian status quo.

In light of the Machiavellian nature of Brotherhood activity, if we were to view the Mother Grand Lodge as a Brotherhood faction designed to keep alive a controversial political cause (i.e., Hanoverian rule in Britain), we would expect the Brotherhood network to be the source of a faction supporting the opposition. That is precisely what happened. Shortly after the founding of the Mother Grand Lodge, another system of Freemasonry was launched that directly opposed the Hanoverians!

When James II was unseated by the Glorious Revolution of 1688, he fled England. His followers promptly formed organizations to help him recover the British throne. The most effective and militant group was the Jacobite organization. Headquartered in Scotland and Catholic Ireland, the Jacobites were able to rally widespread support for the Stuarts. They staged many uprisings and military campaigns against the Hanoverians, although they were ultimately unsuccessful in recrowning the Stuarts. When the unsuccessful James II died in 1701, his son, the self-proclaimed James III, continued the family struggle to regain the British throne. A new branch of Freemasonry was created to assist him. That branch was patterned after the old Knights Templar.

The man who reportedly founded Knights Templar Freemasonry was one of James Ill’s loyal supporters, Michael Ramsey. Ramsey was a Scottish mystic who had been hired by James III to tutor James’ two sons in France.

Ramsey’s goal was to re-establish the disgraced Templar Knights in Europe. To accomplish this, Ramsey adopted the same approach used by the Mother Grand Lodge system of London: the resurrected Knights Templar were to be a secret mystical/fraternal society open to men of varied occupations. The old knightly titles, uniforms, and “tools of the trade” were to be used for symbolic, fraternal and ritual purposes within a Masonic context. In keeping with these aims, Ramsey dubbed himself the Chevalier [Knight] Ramsey.

Ramsey did not work alone. He was assisted by other Stuart supporters. Among them was the English aristocrat, Charles Radcliffe. Radcliffe was a zealous Jacobite who had been arrested with his brother, the Earl of Derwentwater, for their actions in connection with the failed rebellion of 1715 to place James III on the British throne. Both brothers were sentenced to death. The Earl was beheaded, but Radcliffe escaped to France.

In France, Radcliffe assumed the title of Earl of Derwentwater. He presided over a meeting in 1725 to organize a new Masonic lodge based on the Templar format being revealed by Ramsey. The Derwentwater lodge was instrumental in getting the new Templar system of Freemasonry going in Europe. Derwentwater claimed that the authority to establish his Lodge came from the Kilwinning Lodge of Scotland—Scotland’s oldest and most famous lodge.*
* There is some debate as to whether Lord Derwentwater had also received a charter from the Mother Grand Lodge of England to start his new French lodge. Many histories state that he did, but some Masonic scholars aver that no record of such a charter exists and that Lord Derwentwater’s lodge was an unofficial (“clandestine”) lodge.
It has been argued that the Mother Grand Lodge of England would not have granted Derwentwater a charter because his pro-Stuart political leanings were well known.
As a footnote, Lord Derwentwater “continued to remain politically active and he tried to join Charles Edward during the Jacobite rebellion of 1745. The ship on which Derwentwater sailed was captured by an English cruiser. The Earl was taken to London where he was beheaded in December 1746.
Templar Freemasonry is therefore often called Scottish Freemasonry because of its reputed Scottish origin. Ramsey’s Scottish Masonry attracted many members by claiming that the Templar Knights had actually secretly created the Mother Grand Lodge system. According to Ramsey, the Knights Templar had rediscovered the “lost” teachings of Freemasonry centuries earlier in the Holy Land during the Crusades. They brought the teachings back to Europe and, after their disgrace and banishment, secretly kept the teachings alive for hundreds of years in France, England, and Scotland. After centuries of living in the shadows, the Templars cautiously re-emerged by releasing only the Blue Degrees through the vehicle of the Mother Grand Lodge.
Ramsey claimed that the three Blue Degrees were issued only to test the loyalty of Freemasons. Once a Freemason proved his loyalty by reaching the third degree, he was entitled to advance to the “true” degrees: the fourth, fifth, and higher degrees released by Ramsey. Ramsey stated that he was authorized to release the higher degrees by a secret Templar headquarters in Scotland.
According to his story, the Scottish Templars were secretly working through the lodge at Kilwinning.

To effect their pro-Stuart political aims, the Scottish lodges changed the Biblical symbolism of the third Blue Degree into political symbolism to represent the House of Stuart. Ramsey’s “higher” degrees contained additional symbolism “revealing” why Freemasons had a duty to help the Stuarts regain the throne of England. Because of this, many people viewed Scottish Freemasonry as a clever attempt to lure Freemasons away from the Mother Grand Lodge system which supported the Hanoverian monarchy and turn the new converts into pro-Stuart Masons.

The Stuarts themselves joined Ramsey’s organization. James III adopted the Templar title “Chevalier St. George.” His son, Charles Edward, was initiated into the Order of Knights Templar on September 24, 1745, the same year in which he led a major Jacobite invasion of Scotland. Two years later, on April 15, 1747, Charles Edward established a masonic “Scottish Jacobite Chapter” in the French city of Arras.
Charles Edward later denied ever having been a Freemason in order to squelch damaging rumors that Scottish Masonry was nothing more than a front for the Stuart cause (which it largely was), even though he had been a Grand Master in the Scottish system. Proof of his Grand Mastership was discovered in 1853 when someone found the charter issued by Charles Edward to establish the above-mentioned lodge at Arras. The charter states in part:
We, Charles Edward, King of England, France, Scotland, and Ireland, and as such Substitute Grand Master of the Chapter of H., known by the title of Knight of the Eagle and Pelican .. .*
• “Chapter of H” is believed to have been the Scottish lodge at Heredon. Charles Edward is denoted as the “Substitute” Grand Master because his father, as King of Scotland, was considered the “hereditary” Grand Master.
We have just discussed the founding of two systems of Freemasonry. Each one supported the opposite side of an important political conflict going on in England—a conflict which affected other European nations, as well. Both systems of Freemasonry were launched within less than five years of one another. Ramsey’s story of how the two systems came into existence therefore contains some rather stunning implications. His story implies that a small hidden group of people belonging to the Brotherhood network in Scotland deliberately created two opposing types of Freemasonry to encourage and support both sides of a violent political controversy. This would be a startlingly clear example of Machiavellianism.
How true is Ramsey’s story? To answer this question, we must first take a brief look at the history of Freemasonry in Scotland.

Scotland has long been an important center of Masonic activity. The earliest of the old Masonic guilds in Scotland had been founded at Kilwinning in 1120 A.D. By 1670, the Kilwinning Lodge was already practicing speculative Freemasonry (although, in name, it was still an operative lodge).

The Scottish lodges were unique in that they were independent of, and were never chartered by, the English Grand Lodge even after they began to practice the Blue Degrees of the English Grand Lodge system. The Kilwinning Lodge itself had been granting charters since the early 15th century. It ceased doing so only in 1736 when it joined other Scottish lodges in elevating the Edinburgh Lodge to the position of Grand Lodge of Scotland. The new Grand Lodge of Scotland at Edinburgh adopted the speculative system of the English Grand Lodge, yet it still remained independent of the English Grand Lodge and issued its own charters.
About seven years later, in 1743, the Kilwinning Lodge broke away from the Grand Lodge of Scotland over a seemingly trivial dispute. Kilwinning set itself up as an independent Masonic body (“Mother Lodge of Kilwinning”) and once again issued its own charters. In 1807, the Kilwinning Lodge renounced all right of granting charters and rejoined the Grand Lodge of Scotland. We therefore see substantial periods of time in which the Kilwinning Lodge was independent of all other Lodges and when it could very well have granted charters to Templar Freemasons. It was independent at the time Ramsey and Derwentwater claimed to have received authorization from Kilwinning to establish Templar degrees in Europe.

Some masonic historians argue that the Kilwinning Lodge and other Scottish lodges still had nothing to do with creating the so-called “Scottish” degrees. They state that the Scottish degrees were all created in France by Ramsey and his Jacobite cohorts. Some Masonic writers contend that Templarism did not even reach Scotland until the year 1798—decades after it had already caught on in Europe. Those writers further claim that the Kilwinning Lodge had never practiced anything but the Blue Degrees of the English system. Others believe that Ramsey, who was born in the vicinity of Kilwinning, claimed a Scottish origin to his degrees out of nationalistic pride and to help build a base of political support for the Stuarts in Scotland. These arguments sound persuasive, but historical documentation proves that they are all false.

First of all, we have already seen that Scotland was providing this era with important historical figures contributing to some of the changes being wrought by Brotherhood revolutionaries. Michael Ramsey is the third mysterious Scotsman of obscure origin we have seen help bring important changes to Europe. The other two were discussed earlier: William Paterson, who helped German rulers set up a central bank in England, and John Law, who was the architect of the central bank of France.
Secondly, the Scottish masonic lodges were a natural place for pro-Stuart Templar degrees to arise. Scotland was strongly pro-Stuart and the Jacobites were headquartered there.
Decades before the English Grand Lodge was created, many Masons in Scotland were already known to be helping the Stuarts. These Scottish loyalists used their lodges as secret meeting places in which to hatch political intrigues. Pro-Stuart Masonic activity may go as far back as 1660—the year of the Stuart Restoration (when the Stuarts took the throne back from the Puritans). According to some early Masons, the Restoration was largely a Masonic feat. General Monk, who played such a pivotal role in the Restoration, was reported to be a Freemason.

Finally, there is incontroverted evidence that the Scottish lodges, including the one at Kilwinning, were involved with Templarism decades before 1798. Masonic historian Albert Mackey reports in his History of Freemasonry that in 1779, the Kilwinning Lodge had issued a charter to some Irish Masons who called themselves the “Lodge of High Knights Templars.” More than a decade earlier, in 1762, St. Andrew’s Lodge of Boston had applied to the Grand Lodge of Scotland for a warrant (which it later received) by which the Boston lodge could confer the “Royal Arch” and Knight Templar degrees at its August 28, 1769 meeting. It is significant that St. Andrew’s Lodge had applied to the Grand Lodge of Scotland for the right to confer the Templar degree, not to any French lodge.

We have thus confirmed two elements of Ramsey’s story:
1) that Scottish lodges practiced Templar Freemasonry, and
2) that a Scottish Grand Lodge was granting Templar charter sat least as early as 1762.
We can safely assume that the Scottish Grand Lodge was involved with Templarism before that year because the Lodge would have had to establish the Templar degree before another lodge could apply for it. Unfortunately, there are no apparent records surviving to indicate just when Templarism began in the Scottish lodges. Ramsey and Derwentwater, of course, claim that the Templar degrees already existed in the early 1720’s.
The Scottish lodges may well have been involved with some form of Templarism at that time.

Understandably, the Scottish lodges were highly secretive about their Templar activities. We only know about the 1762 Templar charter to St. Andrew’s Lodge from records found in Boston. One need only consider the fates of the two Earls of Derwentwater to appreciate the dangers awaiting those people, including Freemasons, who engaged in pro-Stuart political activity.

Not every element of Ramsey’s Templar story was backed by evidence. For example, Freemasonry itself was not started by the Templar Knights as Ramsey implied. The masonic guilds which gave birth to Freemasonry existed long before the Templar Knights were founded. On the other hand, there is circumstantial evidence that Templar Knights may indeed have been the ones who brought the Blue Degrees to England.

As mentioned in Chapter 15, it is thought that the three Blue Degrees were already being practiced centuries earlier by the Assassin sect of Persia. The Templar Knights had frequent contact with the Assassins during the Crusades. During those periods when they were not fighting against one another, the Assassins and Templars established treaties and engaged in other amicable relations. One treaty even allowed the Templars to build several fortresses on Assassin territory. It is believed by some historians that during those peaceful interludes, the Templars learned about the Assassins’ extensive mystical teachings and incorporated some of those teachings into the Templar system. It is therefore quite possible that the Templars did indeed have the Blue Degrees long before they were established by the English Mother Grand Lodge.

Further circumstantial evidence is that during the Crusade era, the Templars were at the height of their power in Europe. They owned properties throughout the Continent. Their holdings and preceptories in Scotland were especially numerous. When the Templars abandoned the Holy Land after the Crusades, they eventually returned to their preceptories around the world, including Scotland. After the Templar Order was suppressed throughout Europe, many Templars refused to abandon their Templar traditions and so they conducted their activities in secrecy. Some secretly-active Templar joined Masonic lodges, including lodges in Scotland and England. It is therefore conceivable that Templars were the conduit through which the three Blue Degrees traveled from the Assassin sect, through Scotland, to the Mother Grand Lodge of 1717.

Some Freemasons may view any attempt to connect the Blue Degrees with the Assassins sect as an effort to discredit Freemasonry, even though the connection was suggested by one of Masonry’s most esteemed historians. In discussing such a link, it is important to keep in mind that the assassination techniques employed by the Assassins were never taught in the Blue Degrees. The Assassins possessed an extensive mystical tradition that extended well beyond their controversial political methods. Furthermore, the Assassins had borrowed many of their mystical teachings from earlier Brotherhood systems. The Blue Degrees may have therefore begun even earlier than the founding of the Assassin organization.

Whatever the ultimate truth of the origins of the Blue Degrees and Scottish Degrees may have been, both systems gained great popularity. The Scottish Degrees eventually came to dominate nearly all of Freemasonry. On continental Europe, the center of Scottish Freemasonry proved to be Germany, where the same small clique of German petty princes we have been observing soon emerged as leaders in the new Templar Freemasonry.
