Tonight, we will discuss the Bavarian Illuminati and the rise and fall of the
famous and infamous Order, including its penetration of Bavarian society and
its destruction by the Bavarian government.
Jon Graham will explain
the Bavarian Illuminati√Ę‚‚¨‚„Ęs grades, rituals, ceremonies, and fundamental
philosophies, will examine the leaders of the Order and will discuss the
only surviving record of documents that were destroyed during the two World
The Bavarian Order of the
Illuminati is the most celebrated secret society in the world. Though
officially lasting only 11 years, the powerful spell and shadow cast by the
Illuminati still looms in the present day, where its influence can be seen
in current conspiracy beliefs and actions by powerful individuals working in
the shadows. The original Order of the Illuminati was founded by Bavarian
professor Adam Weishaupt in 1776. Although the order was banned and brought
down by the Bavarian Elector in 1787--when he became aware of the extent to
which it had infiltrated the courts, schools, and his own
administration--its legend and deep influence lives on to this day.
Charting the rise and fall
of this infamous order, this book--first published in French in 1915 and
never before available in English--remains the definitive history of the
Order of the Bavarian Illuminati. It also offers a revealing look at the
world that spawned and shaped it: a ceaseless ferment of revolutionary and
occult ideas and the ceaseless attempts by crown and church to suppress
them. Other secret societies that shared the stage with the Illuminati
during these years include the Templar Strict Observance, von Hund√Ę‚‚¨‚„Ęs
Templar Freemasonry, and other Masonic lodges the Illuminati targeted to
subvert for their own purposes. Many of the documents the author consulted
for the writing of this book were destroyed during the two World Wars,
making this book the only surviving record of many of the order√Ę‚‚¨‚„Ęs secrets.
In addition to its
revelation of little-known secrets of the Illuminati Order, the author also
sheds new light on much of the occult life of this time, including the
activities of figures such as Cagliostro and Mirabeau and other active
groups such as Freemason chapters, the Rosicrucians, and the Martinists.
