The Bavarian Illuminati was a secret society that existed in the so called ‘enlightenment era’ of eighteenth century Europe. It was founded on May 1st 1776 by Adam Weishaupt in Ingolstadt, Upper Bavaria with an initial membership of only five. Coming from a family of Orthodox Ashkenazi Jews who had converted to Roman Catholicism, Weishaupt already had previous educational ties with the Jesuit Order (another
secretive organization), before he graduated the University of Ingolstadt aged 20 and became a professor of canon law.
The official definition of the Bavarian Illuminati is that is was simply a collection of ‘free thinkers’ that gathered to exchange ideas regarding enlightenment and higher knowing, yet the vow of secrecy its members had to take suggests that more nefarious objectives were really the societies aims.
Wieshaupt adopted the themes of the Jesuit Oath for his order and modeled it on the freemasons; members were divided into three categories containing several degrees each more advanced and secretive that the preceding ones. Many influential figures and intellectuals of the time regarded themselves as members of the Bavarian Illuminati, including Ferdinand of Brunswick, Johann Wolfgang Von Goeth, Johann Gottfried Herder and the Grand Duke of Saxe-Wiemar-Eisenach.
The truth is that as with any secret society that are apparently the proponents of ‘illuminism’ and enlightened thinking, the Bavarian Illuminati was most likely the complete opposite. Adam Weishaupt and his members, or co-conspirators as would be more appropriate, set about shaking up Europe to establish Illuminati control and strongholds. Members were placed into all areas of society in order to purposely engender conflict and problems that then required some solution that could be brought forward by them and which suited the secret societies agenda perfectly. The Bavarian Illuminati were essentially the conspirators behind the French revolution, which as an undertaking of theirs was designed to give the people the illusion of freedom and equality while it really served to allow a new group of Illuminati figures to take control and begin pulling the political and financial strings for their own ends.
Although Adam Weishaupt is ‘officially’ known as the founder of the Bavarian Illuminati, the true leader and controller of the order was Mayer Amschel Rothschild. The Rothschilds and the Jesuits had long been closely interconnected and so it comes as no surprise that with Weishaupt’s history with the Jesuits, the Rothschilds were behind the formation of this new secret society and likely placed Weishsaupt at the forefront of it to keep the fact they were the true leaders hidden from both new, lower level initiates and
from anyone who was looking into and perhaps trying to expose the Bavarian Illuminati.
Weishaupt, the Jesuit leadership and the Rothschilds dedicated themselves to creating conflict and war in order to divide and conquer the masses, by corrupting politics and religion and manipulating finance. Weishaupt, or ‘Brother Spartacus’ as he was known within the illuminati order then set about infiltrating the freemasons, most notably grand orient freemasonry, in order to extend the Bavarian Illuminati’s tentacles of influence and control further into Europe and beyond. Weishapt once said:
“The great strength of our Order lies in its concealment; let it never appear in any place in its own name but always covered by another name and another occupation. None is fitter than the three lower degrees of Freemasonry; the public is accustomed to it, expects little from it and therefore takes little notice of it.”
In 1785 a courier for the Bavarian Illuminati was struck by lightning one night, thrown from his horse and killed. He was carrying documents that detailed elaborate plans to completely infiltrate and control freemasonry and the governments of the world. The documents declared that:
- They planned to use financial and sexual bribery to control those in positions of power and blackmail them into following their orders and if this didn’t work, the targets and their families would be threatened with violence and if necessary, murdered.
- Education establishments, especially universities would be used to indoctrinate and coerce students from influential families into believing in the need for a world government and one method was to simply give scholarship to those regarded by the Illuminati to be potentially good agents of the future.
- Those controlled by the Bavarian Illuminati through bribery, blackmail or indoctrination were then to be placed throughout the governments, the military, religion and banking etc to serve their agenda and ultimately help to impose a centralized global dictatorship.
- They would ultimately own or at least control all forms of mass communication to ensure that news and information would portray the world in the way the Illuminati wanted them to see it.
In 1798, John Robinson who was a professor of natural philosophy at Edinburgh University and a member of the freemason lodge there wrote a book titled ‘Proofs of a Conspiracy’ that exposed the Bavarian Illuminati. In it, he said he had been asked to join the secret society but had refused. He said “An association has been formed for express purposes of rooting out all religious establishments and overturning all governments… the leaders would rule the world with uncontrollable power, while all the rest would be employed as tools of the ambition of their unknown superiors.”
This goes to heavily reinforce the idea that the Bavarian Illuminati were not simply a group of ‘free thinkers’ but in fact a coalition of domineering conspirators that had major plans to execute in order to dominate much of the world and it is almost identical to what is being advocated by many today, with regards to what the current ’elite’ and powerful groups in control are working to implement and have in fact already implemented in many ways.
A copy of John Robinson’s book was sent to George Washington who actually acknowledged that the Bavarian Illuminati were now operating within the United States and had ‘diabolical tenets’. However, it is likely that George washington himself was either a member of the secret society or was at least being controlled by them and so had no real power to stop or expose them even if he’d wanted to.
Weishaupt said that his ‘pupils’ should not be concerned with using violence and breaking the law in order to implement their agenda. He stated – “Sin is only that which is hurtful and if the profit is greater than the damage, it becomes a virtue.”
He fundamentally believed that everything happened in cycles of fives and so worked worked with the ‘law of fives.’ The inner council of The Bavarian Illuminati was arranged in line with the five points of the pentagram, which is a symbol of satanism and goes to indicate the practice of the occult by its members. It was made up of five men – Mayer Amschel Rothschild, Adam Weishaupt, his friends Franz Kolmer, Alphonse Donatien de Sade and Sir Francis Dashwood. There were three main classes within the society, the novices or ‘minervals’, a middle section of ‘ordinary knights’ and the mystery grade which was further divided into two sections for the ‘priest and regent’ and the ‘magus and king’, also known as Illuminatus Rex.
Lower members made a pledge of obedience to those above them and each had to agree in writing to keep the secrets of the society, even though they were not really told any fundamental truths, then once a month every initiate had to produce a report to his superior who, due to the structure and compartmentalization of the organization, he didn’t even know.
Although it existed centuries ago, the Bavarian Illuminati should not necessarily be passed off by official definitions as being extraneous when referring to the ruling elite of today. Although now officially known about and documented, the Bavarian Illuminati is not necessarily all there has ever been in terms of ‘the illuminati’. The official definitions and fact that the Bavarian Illuminati is now at least potential common knowledge is perhaps an intentional move on the part of todays illuminati control figures to give them added security, as it helps to discredit anyone who brings up the idea of a current illuminati organization that is manipulating and controlling society because it can easily be ‘explained away’ simply as a secret society that existed in Europe between 1776 – 1785.
While the Bavarian Illuminati did exist centuries ago and in ways we are able to separate them from any control figures of today using official definitions and explanations, there is still the strong likelihood that todays ruling elite all bear close relationship with and lineage to both the ideology and the members of the original Bavarian Illuminati. It’s aim was to fundamentally create a global control system unbeknown to the masses, so is it not a
distinct possibility that what was known as the Bavarian Illuminati never actually disbanded but simply continued to develop and transformed into what is known as ‘the Illuminati’ today and that the the official definitions of the Bavarian Illuminati are simply one of their many smoke screens employed to sidetrack anyone looking into them?
The details of the documents recovered from the courier hundreds of years ago and many of the things said by Weishaupt and his members certainly seem to support this, especially when taking into account what is going on around the globe in increasing intensity today.
