There are numbers of these mystic Brotherhoods which have naught to do with “civilized” countries, and it is in their unknown communities that are concealed the skeletons of the past. These “adepts” could, if they chose, lay claim to strange ancestry – H. P. Blavatsky
People establish and join secret societies because they seek power. Once they’ve achieved great power as well as wealth, they sometimes want to brag about it and let others know about their special status. To further this desire, members of secret societies – from Jesuits to Satanists – make use of the media. Highly financed movies are made to communicate to us on a non-verbal level. These movies are often ostensibly based on the books of commissioned writers, themselves lower-level agents of powerful secret societies.
Hollywood movies occasionally provide us with keyhole visions into what’s going on behind the scenes; although not enough for laymen and symbolically illiterate people to decipher and understand. That’s why so many people remain ignorant about secret societies and their ways. However if we do a little serious research, it becomes easier to see what is going on. This process is occasionally helped by whistle-blowing movies from Hollywood and other media orgs, movies such as Brotherhood of the Bell, To the Devil a Daughter, The Devil Rides Out, The Omen, Bladerunner, Freejack, Judge Dread, Fifth Element, Tombraider, The Formula, James Bond, The Da Vinci Code, National Treasure, Skulls, Eyes Wide Shut, Ninth Gate, and so on. As I said, perhaps we are deliberately BEING TOLD what is going on by the elites themselves. It’s an intriguing thought.
Of course the serious researcher does not simply base his work on media extravaganzas. My own work on secret societies is based on sources, and I strengthen my ideas with numerous statements and quotes from insiders and those who have made a deep study of secret society symbolism. In other words, the existence of secret fraternities is documented fact. Happily, if paradoxically, secret societies publish their own works which provide us with key insights into their origins and agendas.
After studying material of this kind I eventually gained greater knowledge about the workings of the world’s major secret societies – the Freemasons, Knights Templar, Rosicrucians, Knights of Malta, Jesuits, Illuminati, etc. Additionally, the artwork I decipher is that which hangs in their own clubs and lodges, and in famous shrines such as the House of the Temple in Washington DC. Interesting artwork is to be found in plenty throughout the world’s many Masonic halls that stand in almost every major town and city casually passed and ignored by most people as they go about their business. A study of the friezes and reliefs outside Masonic structures also furnished me with insight into the subtle manner in which insiders non-verbally communicate with us. I learned to go even further, and observed the many clock towers, statues, fountains, murals, floors and obelisks, etc, which exist in major towns and cities. I discovered that most cities are ritually laid out and have a more esoteric purpose than one might guess. (See my book The Trees of Life: Exposing the Art of Holy Deception, for more on this subject.)
As to the power of secret societies, we must accept that it is considerable. After doing nearly thirty years of research into these matters, I realized the extent of their sociopolitical power. I also realized that most of their operations would not receive public approval. This is partly why they prefer anonymity. Although their identities may not be secret, their rites, behavior and designs for world control are kept in the dark and out of sight to ordinary men and women. They make good use of hierarchies and fixed degree ceremonies to ensure that only the “right” kind of person gets to be an insider. Their recruiting fraternities are found in every major university and college. Their lower and higher members surround us in every school, university, corporation, livery company and charity.
To uncover their existence you must not wait for them to come out into the open. You must go into your streets with open eyes and ask yourself – Who built Bath? Who built London? Who built Washington DC, Cologne and Paris? You might not understand completely all the secrets of these fraternities, but you can eventually realize that something strange has been going from the year dot. You’ll realize the tremendous financial power that exists, out of reach of the common man. And you’ll realize the time it took to attain such power. In the end you’ll be more aware of the presence and prestige of the equestrian and chivalric orders that infest our world. You’ll understand how their many lower-level branches and fraternities work to filter out moral men and promote immoral and amoral ones.
Ask questions such as: how did a small country like England, since the 16th century, get its predatory talons into so many far off lands, conquering, colonizing and “ruling the waves?” How did a predatory exploitative organization like the Vatican (which is more than the center of the Roman Catholic religion) gain so much power? Why does it still exist after the heinous historical crimes of which it is guilty – more than 500 years of the persecution of so called “witches,” who were just ordinary women doing their thing – healing, learning about nature’s ways, knowing the secrets of herbalism and agriculture, etc. We are talking about nearly nine million victims of total deliberate slaughter. And that series of atrocities is just a single instance of the pestilence of this Roman branch of the ancient Setian-Atonist “Black Lodge” exposed throughout my works. To get away with it, and remain above the law, takes considerable power doesn’t it? Right! So what’s different when it comes to the existence of even more elusive and sinister orders?
The Vatican is allied with numerous secret orders, such as the Jesuits, Knights of Malta, Knights of Columbus, Order of Christ, Scottish Rite, Grand Orient, Opus Dei, and of course the Knights Templar – one of the most powerful organizations in the world. Some of the top degrees of what we know to be Freemasonry are Templar degrees. This is because members and agents of the Templars, within the College of Cardinals and other shadowy sects, have long infiltrated most Freemasonic societies throughout the western world. They achieved this takeover primarily through the Rosicrucians, Illuminati and other secret societies operated by their agents. Below You Can Listen To Expert Dr Erik Karlstrom On How These Groups Destroy Innocent People’s Lives Everyday Right Under Our Noses.
Warnings about this surreptitious takeover went out from men in the know during the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Observant insiders, such as Nicolas de Bonneville, Samuel Pritchard, Gérard Encausse, Eliphas Levi, Augustin Barruel, John Robinson and others, believed that ostensibly Protestant orders of Masonry had been completely undermined by the Templars. There is no doubt in my mind that the same is the case for the ostensibly Protestant Rosicrucian Order that arose in the seventeenth century.
Suggestively, chief Rosicrucian symbols, such as the cross and rose, are to be found in plenty on earlier Templar graves and architecture, and in their traditions. Moreover, in Catholic dominated lodges, such as those of Grand Orient Masonry, degrees known as “Rose Cross” exist, clearly an impossibility if the Rosicrucians were truly a Protestant breakaway sect.
Around 1530, more than eighty years before the publication of the first manifesto, the association of cross and rose already existed in Portugal in the Convent of the Order of Christ, home of the Knights Templar, later renamed Order of Christ. Three bocetes were, and still are, on the vault of the initiation room. The rose can clearly be seen at the center of the cross – Wikipedia Online Encyclopedia (Entry on Roscicrucianism)
Documents available in France today contend that an Order of the Rosy Cross was founded in 1188 by a pre-Masonic Templar named Jean de Gisors, vassal of English King Henry II and the first independent grand master of the Order of Sion – Jim Marrs (Rule by Secrecy)
The Order of the Illuminati appears as an accessory to Freemasonry. It is in the Lodges of Freemasons that the Minervals are found, and there they are prepared for Illumination. They must have previously obtained the three English degrees. The founder says more. He says that his doctrines are the only true Freemasonry. He was the chief promoter of the Eclectic System. This he urged as the best method of getting information of all the explanations which have been given of the Masonic Mysteries. He was also a Strict Observance and an adept Rosicrucian – John Robinson (Born in Blood)
The Rosy Cross derived from the Red Cross of the Templars. Mirabeau, who
as a Freemason and an Illuminatus, was in a position to discover many facts
about the secret societies of Germany during his stay in the country, definitely asserts that “the Rose Croix Masons of the seventeenth century were only the ancient Order of the Templars secretly perpetuated” – Nesta Webster (quoting from Count Mirabeau’s Histoire de la Monarchie Prussienne)
In France the Knights [Templar] who left the Order, henceforth hidden, and
so to speak unknown, formed the Order of the Flaming Star and of the Rose-
Croix, which in the fifteenth century spread itself in Bohemia and
Silesia – Lecouteulx de Canteleu
Templar graves have been found in several sites in Palestine which contain a carved effigy of a warrior’s sword, which itself is a cruciform shape, around which are entwined roses – Alan Butler and Stephen Dafoe (The Warriors and the Bankers)
Many writers on the Order of the Rosy Cross have alleged that the fraternity was founded by ex-members of the Templar Order after their suppression by Pope Clement – Michael Howard (Occult Conspiracy)
The insignia of a knight of the Order of the Garter consists of a jewelled collar composed of gold and red roses with five petals contained within tiny garters…Hanging from the collar is a representation of St. George, the patron saint of England, killing the dragon – ibid
Clearly the Rosicrucians served as yet one more cover society behind which cunning, far-seeing Templars managed to conceal themselves, this time under a Protestant disguise. This was an essential strategy for their subversion of Prussian and British Masonry to succeed.
In 1663 a great Masonic Congress was held, at which the famous three degrees were created and a strong Rosicrucian element was introduced into the craft. Around this same time a book appeared, written by a French priest named Depuis, which called upon the Masons to vindicate the Knights Templars, who had been dispersed and suppressed by Philippe Le Bel in the Fourteenth Century. Depuis argued that the Templars were a religious order and that the French monarchy, which had destroyed them, must be made to pay for what it had done – Father Clarence Kelly (Conspiracy Against God and Man)
Although the symbol of the red cross was bestowed on the Templars by Pope Eugenius III, it is a symbol that long predates modern times. It was originally employed by the ancient Arya, and is a goddess symbol par excellence. In Greek mythology the god of beauty, Adonis, was transformed into a rose by Venus. The red color of the flower was thereby caused by his blood. Venus is the tutelary deity of the Sisterhood. In this instance the rose symbolizes the power of the female goddess over the male acolyte who sacrificially offers his phallus (and sometimes his life) to her. It was in the twelfth century, during the reign of King Stephen, that the Templar red cross first appeared as the chief heraldic emblem of England.
St. George was venerated by the Templars who modeled themselves after him. Of course a great deal of esoteric symbolism is involved in the story of St. George and his adventures with females and dragons. Wherever the red cross is found, either on Templar emblems or images of St. George, the reference is to blood. More particularly, in the case of Masonry and Templarism it represents emasculation, the removal (ritually or physically) of the phallus. Note the proximity of the princess (with red dress) and St. George’s foot on the troublesome dragon. The dragon represents the sexual urges that allegedly bar the way to service and enlightenment. Monks shaved their heads into a tonsure to represent their own celibacy, and Jews took to wearing the yarmulke to symbolize theirs. This physical or symbolic celibacy makes sense only in regards worship of the Mother Goddess. When we see images of the god Mithras slaying the bull, the underlying implication is, as in the case of St. George and his dragon, castration.
We see that the concept of the Holy Blood does not have much to do with the Christian Jesus. That is just a convenient cover. The Templars have recently reminded us of this through Dan Brown’s extravaganza The Da Vinci Code, where it is Mary and protagonist Sophie who take center stage in the drama. In the movie’s ending scene we are left in no doubt who is of central importance for all concerned. Just before the hero arrives above the subterranean crypt of Mary Magdalene, he cuts himself “shaving,” and is then shown following a blood trail (the Rose Line) to her resting place below an Egyptian-style pyramid at the Louvre. We then see him kneel exactly as knights do to signify his chivalric dedication to her name. Clearly Mary not Jesus is the way, the truth and the light.
These largely Templaresque chivalric or equestrian orders own immense wealth and command titanic power. They are the Alpha Lodges that don’t accept you and I or any common man. They are headed by extremely privileged individuals such as King Juan Carlos of Spain, the Duke of Kent, Queen Beatrix of Holland, and Queen Elizabeth of England, as well as those she appoints to her so-called Privy Council, Order of St. Michael and St. George and Knights of the Garter. Men from these illustrious bodies commission other important societies around the world, both secret and open, for the recruitment of loyal members whose job it is to interface with the “unwashed” masses. These recruits come from the Catholic world as much as from the Protestant, which should have alerted interested parties long ago.
The various British, Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese elite counsels serve even higher, more elusive concerns which I refer to as the “Black Lodge.” This term refers to the superior council of Setian-Atonists whose origins trace back to the time of Pharaoh Akhenaton, the Biblical Moses. The all-powerful Black Lodge in turn authorizes the various societies and councils mentioned above to vet and select the many other less-informed lieutenants who get to run the governments, institutes and think-tanks of countries throughout the world. These lower-level pawns are the common duplicitous politicians and functionaries we are all too familiar with. These “opposames” certainly do not serve you or I. Nowadays, because of the unceasing work of researchers such as myself, many intelligent people realize this fact.
Indeed, the main reason why we tend to doubt the existence and power of secret societies is simply because we are not members of the club. It all goes on in the shadows and periphery of vision. You have to make a detailed lifelong study to uncover the roots of this pestilence. You must learn to endure the ridicule of almost everyone you attempt to awaken on these controversial matters. You must also be able to keep track of the seismic changes and dynastic rivalries that have occurred within the world of secret societies. Some of these feuds and purges are known to the public while others have been kept secret for centuries.
The role of women in regards the world’s most powerful secret societies is one area neglected by mainstream historians, and for good reason. The Female Illuminati is second to none in authority, and their senior members have seen to it that knowledge of their existence does not leak out. Most people are inclined to believe that women play no part whatsoever in Masonry or Templarism. As I explain in the Female Illuminati program, Nothing could be further from the truth. Not only did women birth, raise and marry male demagogues the world over – those who apparently established infamous secret societies – but women were in many cases top members of these societies.
Dudley Wright said in his book Women and Freemasonry, that “there is evidence in days gone by that women were admitted into the Order of the Knights Templar,” substantiated by the recent discovery of Templar gravestones for women – Tony Bushby (Secret in the Bible)
Rene de Anjou’s daughter, Margarite de Anjou married the last Lancastrian king before the War of the Roses, Henry VI of England, in 1445, and played a prominent part in the Wars of the Roses which began in 1455. It was Margarite’s daughter Iolande who became Grand Master of the Priory de Sion in 1430 – Nicholas Hagger
As to the origin of the Illuminati, you can look to two interesting men to gain understanding. One is Ignatius Loyola of Spain and the other is Adam Weishaupt of Germany. Ignatius Loyola was the founder of the infamous Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuit Order. He was their first “General” or “Black Pope.”
Curiously, the Jesuit Order (the only Catholic order ever to be officially suppressed and penalized by the Papacy) was abolished in the year 1773. Pope Clement XIV finally, with some reluctance, issued a Papal Brief (order) completely abolishing the Jesuit Order, supposedly for all time. Now we ask, are we to accept it as a coincidence that the Illuminati (under Weishaupt) come online, as it were, in the year 1776?
The Jesuits had been in trouble with numerous powerful monarchs in Europe and South America for over ten years before the ban was issued. So they were well and truly aware of what was in store for them and their nefarious order. Before the hammer came down in 1773, the Jesuits anticipated their dire predicament and fomented plans for a clandestine resurgence. In fact the Jesuits were already experienced at creating satellite orders throughout the world for their members to conceal themselves behind during times when local suppression occurred. So it was easy for them to resurface under a new guise when the situation demanded it. After their worldwide ban, their new organ of concealment, infiltration and destruction was in my opinion the Bavarian Illuminati.
But what further proof do we have other than the coinciding dates? Well, the name “Illuminati” itself takes us straight to the door of Ignatius Loyola. As a young man in Spain he had been arrested and charged with membership and support of the notorious sect known as the Alumbrados, which may have originated in the 1490s. Loyola was arrested, charged with heresy and imprisoned due to his affiliation with the sect. He lost his university position and was under strict surveillance for some time because of his open affiliation with the secretive illegal society. Suggestively, the Alumbrados were also known as “The Illuminati.” They referred to themselves as the Brothers of Light or Shining Ones. So do we take it as a coincidence that the later Bavarian Illuminists just happened to adopt this title from the selfsame order favored by the founder and head of the Jesuits?
The rhetoric and propaganda released by the Illuminati and their agents, concocted to distance themselves from the Jesuits – and to give the appearance of being anti-monarchist – does not change the facts. Adam Weishaupt was himself a Jesuit and in our opinion he remained so until the end. He was not anti-monarchy because some of his closest compatriots, such as Baron von Knigge, were nobles related to illustrious dynasties such as Stuart, Hesse, Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, Hapsburg, Bourbon, Lorraine, and others. Moreover, Weishaupt languished in the homes of the nobility for the last forty years of his life, even receiving a lifelong pension from Ernest II, the Duke of Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg, himself an Illuminati member.
Apparently the Lutheran Duke did not mind working alongside Catholic members such as the Count de Mirabeau and Duc d’Orleans, etc. Another confederate and co-creator of the Bavarian Illuminati was Prince William of Hesse-Kassel, from the family which employed the Rothschilds as treasurers and investors. Prince William’s brother Karl was both an elite Mason and an Illuminist. The merger of the Illuminati and the Masons occurred at the Congress of Wilhelmsbad, in 1777, at a cozy retreat owned by Prince William.
The Weishaupt documents are incontestably authentic; the Bavarian government unwittingly forestalled any attempt to cry “Forgery” (in the manner made familiar in our century) by inviting any who were interested to inspect the original documents in the archives at Munich – Douglas Reed (Controversy of Zion)
The Duke of Brunswick (Karl Wilhelm Ferdinand), himself a senior Mason, sounded a worldwide warning about the subversive agenda of the Templar-Jesuit-Illuminists. His address of 1794 informed the world as to the danger of the Illuminist infiltration of Masonry. During his speech, the Duke warned: A great sect arose, which taking for its motto the good and the happiness of man, worked in the darkness of the conspiracy to make the happiness of humanity a prey for itself. This sect is known to everyone; its brothers are known no less than its name. He continued saying:
They deluged the world with a multitude of publications; they recruited apprentices of every rank and in every position; they deluded the most perspicacious men by falsely alleging different intentions. They sowed in the hearts of youth the seed of covetousness, and they excited it with the bait of the most insatiable passions. Indomitable pride, thirst of power, such were the only motives of this sect: their masters had nothing less in view than the thrones of the earth, and the government of the nations was to be directed by their nocturnal clubs – Duke of Brunswick (Manifesto of 1794)
The Duke referred to the infiltrators and corrupters as a “Sun Order.” In our opinion this intriguing reference describes and leads us to the door of the ancient Atonist Order of Zadok or Melchizedek, that is of Pharaoh Akhenaton and his ideological descendants, i.e., the Knights Templar, Strict Observance, Grand Orient, Jesuits, and other clandestine orders.
Weishaupt’s order was partly financed by the Jewish Rothschild dynasty, but all is revealed when we remember that the Rothschilds were, and still are, Papal Knights. The Swiss branch of the Rothschilds, in particular, have long been loyal servants of the Catholic Hapsburg dynasty, the College of Cardinals, and families that make up Italy’s oligarchy – the infamous “Black Nobility.”
Many members of the Hofjuden or “Court Jews,” are Knights of Malta – a super-wealthy order directly related to the Templars and Knight Hospitallers (or Knights of St. John). Indeed the Templars and Jesuits indulged in banking and tax-collecting before the Jews. The Rothschilds began banking enterprises in the eighteenth century, whereas the Templars were involved in banking in the eleventh, twelfth and thirteenth centuries. (See Article II for how the Jews became entangled with the Atonist Black Lodge)
The Templars eventually became so rich that the monarchs of some of the kingdoms within which they operated were wholly dependent on their support. Several kings of England actually lodged the treasury of the realm at the Templar headquarters in London, as surety against the massive debts they ran up with the order. This gave the Templars great power to influence decision-making, and they regularly acted as arbiters for warring monarchs – Alan Butler and Stephen Dafoe (The Knights Templar Revealed)
…the Templars became bankers to every throne in Europe. They lent money to hard-up monarchs at low interest rates and transferred money for merchant bankers. Through a system of promissory notes they allowed money deposited in one city to be drawn in another. They became money-changers and powerful capitalists who conducted diplomacy between monarchs. In England the Master of the Temple was soon given precedence over all other priors and abbots – Nicholas Hagger (Secret History of the West)
By the beginning of the thirteenth century the Templars had become the international bankers of Europe and were appointed treasurers to the French royal family and the Vatican – Michael Howard (Occult Conspiracy)
The Rothschilds, for all their colossal power and wealth, were and are servants of the more secretive and illustrious Gaonim or Order of Melchizedek that merely expanded its ancient order into what we know as Masonry, the Templars and Bavarian Illuminati, etc. Once this is understood a lot of missing pieces of the puzzle fall into place.
The Jews have historically been used as a hidden order of the Catholic Church. They do the things that the Catholic Church does not like to be seen doing. Jews are perfect for the job…As long as people rail at the Jews, and as long as they rail back at their attackers, no one will look beyond the Jews – and that is where the body is buried – Richard Kelley Hoskins (In the Beginning: The Story of the International Trade Cartel)
The Jews appear as abject servants of the Catholic Church…To the ‘Alpha Jews’ the door of the Church corporation stands wide open. There are countless Jewish priests, scores of Jewish cardinals and bishops, and some like Anaclet II, Gregory VI and Gregory VII became Popes – ibid
…you hear of the Rothschilds in the world of finance. They are not the originators of the control over finance and the practices therein. But they have been given a franchise to control the money aspect of the people of the world. In return for their exercising this control and keeping their mouth shut they are given handsome privileges of money manipulation and of course increase their money wealth by leaps and bounds – Norman Dodd (Reese Commission Research Director)
As early as 1791 allegations concerning the role of the Masons and the Illuminati were already beginning to circulate. They were largely based on the confession of Cagliostro who had been arrested by the Inquisition in 1789. In an attempt to save his life, Cagliostro told his accusers about the international conspiracy by the Illuminati, the neo-Templars and the Freemasons to start revolutions all over France…He even claimed that the House of Rothschild…had supplied funds to finance the French Revolution and that they were acting as agents for the Illuminati – Michael Howard (Occult Conspiracy)
The stories which assert that the Rothschilds built their fortune on funds entrusted to them by the Prince of Hesse and from the profits they netted from the false rumor they spread that the English had lost at Waterloo do not appear to account for their vast wealth. They may have come into the great wealth because Jewish bankers had accumulated it from the times of the de Medicis and even earlier – C. J. Bjerknes (The Jewish Genocide of the Armenians)
This obviously has the ring of truth. Jews as a tribe and tiny demographic have been in the world for millennia. They’ve craved their homeland Israel for almost as long, from the period of their alleged “Exiles” in Babylon and Persia long before the birth of Christ. If they were as powerful and wealthy as many believe, they’d have secured Israel for themselves long before 1948. Yet this they strangely found impossible for centuries until western Gentiles finally conspired and gave Israel to them. These western potentates and ministers achieved overnight what all the sultans of the Ottoman Empire, and kings of Russia, Spain, Portugal, Iran, Persia, Babylon, and elsewhere never managed to do – what the richest Jews in the east and west were themselves unable to achieve.
The Sabbatean-Frankist-Illuminists not only included members of the infamous Rothschild family – agents of the Templar-Luciferians – but also Moses Mendelssohn, one of the five original members of the Illuminati.
The story of how “Jews” came to be involved with the Templars is explained further down.
Loyola, Francis Xavier, and other early Jesuits wrote that they were intentionally organizing their fledgling society along the lines of the Knights Templar, the renegade once Catholic order suppressed by the Church in the fourteen century. So why would the situation have been different in the eighteenth century when the curtain was temporarily brought down on the Jesuits by higher authority? I do not think it was different. I think the Jesuits simply adopted the structure of their parent order – the Templars. I also believe it was Templar agents within the Vatican who, during the reign of Pope Pius VII, worked to overturn Pope Clement’s ban and restore the Jesuits legally to their original prominent station.
Ignatius Loyola (1491-1556) and Adam Weishaupt (1748-1830). Both men were Jesuits and “Illuminists.” Loyola and his order were obsessively dedicated to the Virgin Mary while the members of the Illuminati referred to themselves as “Minervals,” after the goddess Minerva. One of Minerva’s mascots was the owl, the bird that hunts at night and sees what is invisible to those who dwell in the light of day. Mary and Minerva are both “virginal” icons. This is a reference not to sex but to the female Dragon Court behind the more conspicuous male orders. Minerva is a “rebel” goddess who assisted Prometheus to steal the heavenly fire. Her origin lies with the most ancient Egyptian goddess Neith, the “Red Queen.” The red shield and arrows that appear on the Rothschild family crest allude to Neith, who was transmogrified into Pallas-Athena or Minerva. The single eye is also a prime goddess symbol. The Frankfurt branch of the Illuminati was entitled the “All Seeing Eye Lodge,” once headed by the notorious Jacob Frank, head of the Setian-Luciferian order of Frankists.
It is interesting and suggestive that both Loyola and Weishaupt were Jesuits. They may also have had Jewish ancestry. In any case, it is significant that they were Roman Catholics before they founded their secretive cabals. This tells us that, after becoming Masons in their younger days, they were later recruited and indoctrinated by Templar agents.
As never before since our alienation, this battle for freedom can now be fought by all Germans, and virtuously ended in the clear perception of our enemies: Jews, Freemasons, Jesuits and the Roman Pope – General Erich Ludendorff (Destruction of Freemasonry)
Not only does the fraternity (Freemasonry) owe its existence to Templarism, the fraternity seems to loudly proclaim it in a number of ways – Alan Butler and Stephen Dafoe
I have shown from authentic documents that, from its introduction into France by monks until the advent of the reign of James I of England, British Masonry was purely Roman Catholic, and that its Grand Masters, of whom I have provided the official list, were drawn exclusively from the Court, the Nobility or the Prelacy…Despite the birth of the distinctive Masonry of William of Orange in 1694, the ancient British Masonry preserved its ancient statutes under the Protestant King and remained Roman Catholic: proof of this is to be found in the precious Masonic documents which I propose to publish, and which escaped the mad orgy of destruction at the hands of the innovators of modern Masonry in 1747 – Brother Teder (L’irregularite du Grand Orient de France, 1909)
It is claimed that before his execution the last Grand Master of the Templars, Jacques de Molay, assigned Hugo von Salm, a canon of Mainz, the mission of smuggling important Templar documents into Scotland. De Molay’s hope was that the Templars could be reactivated there under another name. That name, according to the tradition, is Freemasonry. Strict Observance Masonry incorporated references to the Templars into its rites and degrees – Glenn Magee (Hegel & the Hermetic Tradition)
As your study continues you’ll find that there are many lies told about these men and their orgs. Adam Weishaupt’s group is erroneously considered to have been anti-royalist. This assertion is blatantly false. Adam Weishaupt received additional support and funding from various nobles and royals, such as Baron von Knigge, and more significantly from Charles de Lorraine and the Duke de Orleans, that is by members of the Stuart, Hapsburg, Bourbon, Lorraine, Capet, and other powerful European dynasties. Members of these royal families were seniors within other powerful secret societies such as the Rosicrucians, Strict Observance and Scottish Rite, etc. Some sources believe it was Charles de Lorraine (working under the pseudonym Kolmer) who divulged esoteric secrets to Weishaupt and commissioned him to establish the Illuminati. And the elusive Charles was no commoner. He was a true blue blood. So the idea that the Illuminati were against monarchy is laughable. The only monarchs and nobles they were against were those not under their control and not members of their perfidious Brotherhood. Interestingly the highest grade attainable within the Illuminati bore the title REX meaning “King.” A strange title to bestow upon the highest initiate of a supposedly anti-royalist cabal, right? It makes sense if your order is based on the Templar tradition, in which case the “King” in question is Lucifer, Lord of Light.
The man who is good for nothing better remains a Scottish Knight. If he is, however, a particularly industrious coordinator, observer, worker, he becomes a Priest…If there are among these (Priests) high speculative intellects, they become Magi. These collect and put in order the higher philosophical system and work at the People’s Religion, which the Order will next give to the world. Should these high geniuses also be able to rule the world, they will become regents – Adam Weishaupt
Yes, by Weishaupt’s own words we see that it is a matter of “ruling” the world, not “helping” the world. Nice of him to be so explicit.
The Templar-Illuminists merely adopted an anti-royalist stance because it was an expedient ruse. It got them where they wanted to go. Societies of this kind are very chameleon-like. They know their enemies and how to subvert them. They know how to lure and win favor. They know how to create and sustain faux rival groups to prevent authentic rival groups from moving against them. This tactic has served the powers-that-be no end. The propaganda they dished out in the eighteenth century was cunningly designed to attract rebellious young men of wealth and intelligence from all over the world. After all, you don’t want your secret society full of idiots. The idea was to attract such men in order to prevent them forming or joining authentic opposition movements which were sprouting up throughout Europe and the Middle East. In order to seduce the young idealistic freedom-loving sons of wealthy royals and nobles, the Illuminati cunningly professed to be politically progressive and morally libertine. New recruits inevitably fell under the control of their puppeteers. Susceptible types were successfully indoctrinated, whereas overly suspicious radicals who sensed they were being misled were professionally or even physically assassinated. After generations of Machiavellian scheming, the Illuminati’s agents ensconced themselves in every religious, political and corporate organization and institution, intent on changing the direction of world events to suit their sinister agendas. It is only in relatively recent times that humanity has been made aware of these machinations, and there’s still a ways to go before we can successfully subvert these blood-soaked crime lords and architects of control.
One of the biggest lies told about the Jesuits is that they are indelibly liberal. Nothing could be further from the truth. They adopted a liberal facade in the twentieth century to fool moderns. A study of their vile history shows how ultra-conservative or ultramontanist they are beneath the surface. One reason for the facade has to do with their intention of moving the governments of Europe and America toward the creation of multinational organizations such as the United Nations, an impossible task until they adopted a more humanitarian and benign guise.
In any case, regardless of the Templar-Jesuit connection, it is not right to think that the perfidious Order of the Illuminati began in the 1700s. Nor is it correct to think of Masonry starting in the 17th and 18th centuries. As we said, the Alumbrados date from the fifteenth century, and there are other orders that preceded them, such as the Templars, Hospitallers and Rosicrucians, etc. Churches and monuments in France dating to the 5th century display Masonic emblems, and scholars have found Masonic symbols in the artwork and architecture of ancient Egypt. Masonic-style aprons were certainly worn by early pharaohs and Phoenicians. Templar-like crosses can be seen on the regalia of Sumerian and Babylonian kings. Moreover, there are many eminent Masonic writers who have emphasized their society’s antiquity. More importantly, the multifaceted symbolism employed by these societies – the coffin, triangle, pyramid, pentagram, hexagram, twin pillars, checked floor, compass, letter G, etc – is undoubtedly ancient. This idiosyncratic symbolism conceals the “mysteries” to be uncovered and understood, mysteries that lead back to ancient Egypt and beyond.
Smith, in his chapter on the antiquity of Masonry in Britain, says that “notwithstanding the obscurity which envelopes Masonic history in that country, various circumstances contribute to prove that Freemasonry was introduced into Britain about 1030 years before Christ” – Thomas Paine (The Origins of Freemasonry)
A statue of Aion (Phanes), unearthed from a Roman villa of the first century CE and now preserved in the Vatican, depicts him winged and naked except for a Masonic-type apron – Michael Howard (Occult Conspiracy)
…it is seen that Freemasonry also existed in the 1300s, as shown by documents that are still in existence. These include the Regius and Cooke documents – Sanford Holst (Sworn in Secret)
The symbols of Freemasonry reflect much of its heritage, and reach back far into antiquity – ibid
…any person who has looked at the issues carefully must first come to the conclusions that not only did the Knights Templar, in one form or another, very definitely survive beyond 1307, but that Freemasonry, on one form or another, significantly predates the 18th century – Butler and Dafoe (The Knights Templar Revealed)
It is also important to realize that the Illuminati is not an exclusively western phenomenon. Some researchers believe the Templars were heavily influenced by Middle-Eastern and Oriental occult societies and traditions, so much so that they willingly, if secretly, renounced Christianity. According to some sources this accounts for why their parent order, the Priory de Sion, excommunicated the Templars in the year 1188. It is also the reason the Templars were officially suppressed in 1314 by the reigning Pope and King of France. I prefer to believe that it was after their coffers were seized and their leaders arrested and tortured that the Templars became apostates.
The Eastern Illuminati include societies such as the Druze, Ishmalis, Assassins, Sabbateans and Seveners, themselves branches of the super-secret Order of Melchizedek or Atonist Black Lodge that goes back to ancient Egypt. Although the Sabbateans and Seveners (like later Frankists) were officially founded by Jewish and crypto-Jewish occultists, their true origins lie in ancient times with the elusive Gaonim. Significantly, the Gaonim – themselves high-degree Setian-Atonists – referred to themselves as Exilarchs or Princes of Light. They and their many agents constitute the male family tree of the all too real Illumined Ones or Illuminati.
The famous letter “G” seen on Masonic emblems (and several corporate logos) signifies not only this illustrious patriarchal cadre, but the even more elusive and peculiar quorum they serve, those I refer to as the Serpent or Dragon Sisterhood, or Female Illuminati. (The lower case “g” signifies the serpent or dragon.) The emanating light often seen around the G is not the light of the sun, but of the planet Venus, sacred to the Sisterhood and known in esoteric circles as the Shekinah.
There must be something not only secretive but prestigious about Masonry and its kindred societies for men of eminence and intelligence to want to join and participate. The Gaonate were made up of elite Pharisees and Sadducees who went underground after the destruction of Jerusalem in AD70. These elites were already part of the Egyptian Order of Melchizedek (Akhenaton) that had many devotees and agents in Judea, Palestine and Rome. Although ordinary orthodox Jews worship Jehovah, the male god, the higher echelons within or behind Judaism (the Gaonim and later Sabbateans and Frankists) worship the Goddess Asherah (Venus, Lucifer), also known as the Shekinah. The checkerboard on which Washington stands represents the two phases of the planet Venus – the rising and setting, or morning and evening phases. Note the also the crescent and comet above Washington’s head. The reason for these celestial motifs is explained in the program. (Here for more…)
Note George Washington’s lambskin apron or abnet. Aprons are female symbols, originally worn in Egypt by semi-naked pubescent girls in order to conceal their genitalia during periods of menstruation. Masons wear them to symbolically feminize themselves and present themselves as ritually (and maybe even physically) castrated eunuchs in service to their Goddess. Masonic aprons are loaded with female symbolism, as I show in the program. There can be little doubt that Weishaupt, Loyola, and men of their abnormal kind, were desexed eunuchs expertly hiding their pathological tendencies behind the veneer of patriarchal edifices such as the Catholic Church and Templarist secret societies; the Templars themselves being ardent disciples of the ancient Dragon Sisterhood. The genital “wounding” also serves as a ritual imitation of the wound of Lucifer who fell into the depths of the underworld, deprived of his virility and authority.
These Atonist-Judites must not necessarily be confused with those referred to as Jews. Common Judaism of the religious kind, as well as political Zionism, are merely two of many branches that have grown from this rotten family tree of sorcerers. In fact, Christianity is itself also the creation of this faustian Solar Cult, being yet one more corrupted theology of light. St. Paul (the cover name of Josephus Flavius Arrius Piso) was commissioned to write his works on Jesus by his shadowy Atonist masters within the Gaonate. (The reasons for this are detailed in my book The Irish Origins of Civilization.)
Another important branch of the Atonist (Setian) Gaonate hides itself behind the ostensibly Catholic College of Cardinals. Agents of this prestigious Luciferian quorum in turn direct the operations of other functioning secret societies throughout the world, such as the Knights of Malta, Grand Orient, Opus Dei, Knights of Columbus, Order of Christ, Order of the Holy Sepulchre, Order of the Thistle, Order of St. Patrick, United Irishmen, Ancient Order of Hibernians, and so on. They even control ostensibly Protestant societies such as the Rosicrucians, Order of St. John, Orange Lodge, Black Perceptory, etc. This is obvious when one studies the symbolism employed by these societies. For the most part it is purely Templar symbolism. What does this mean? Simply that men from such societies, after being seduced into reversing their allegiances, become willing agents for their one-time enemies. This is the case for every secret society throughout the world. It means that behind lodge doors, and for those of higher degree, the obvious political allegiances dividing common men mean little.
But what are we told when we ask about the origin of this little known illustrious society – the Gaonim? Well, ordinary religious Jews are wont to repeat the fallacies they’ve swallowed. They tell us that they probably originated after the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem in 70 AD and split between Pharisees and Sadducees. They sometimes say they originated when Moses transmitted the secret Oral Law or Torah to the 70 elders of Israel on Mount Sinai; or that they were founded after the Israelites were released from their captivity in Babylon, or from the time of the secretive thirteenth tribe of Levites. This is true to a point, as long as we realize that the Levites themselves have an ancestry that goes even further back to the time of Akhenaton (known in occult circles as Melchizedek), and the powerful Hyksos nobility that mainstream historians are reluctant to coherently comment on. This is chiefly because they know what ordinary folks are never meant to know – that the Hyksos nobility (and Levites) were originally high-born Scythians from Ireland, England and Scandinavia. Yes, many are the false leads and dead ends. It takes many years of arduous study to see behind the carefully crafted tall tales and smoke screens.
Eventually, with the assistance of the Hyksos-Atonist descended Merovingian kings and Knights Templar, the Gaonim (or Order of Melchizedek) surfaced bearing a new title – that of “Freemasons.” (One translation of this term is “Brothers of the Sun.”) Under a Jewish veneer, lodges such as the infamous Lodge Theodore were formed to preserve the Gaonim’s hoary traditions and allow “brothers” to meet and plot in secrecy.
This explains why so many Masonic tropes and ritual leitmotifs appear to be “Jewish” in origin. Exoteric researchers falsely believe this is all there is to the symbolism of Masonry. It’s what they are meant to believe. In fact the origin of Masonic symbolism far predates the rise of Judaism in all its configurations and permutations. As I show, esoteric Judaism, like Masonry, is nothing less than corrupted Irish Druidism in the form of Egyptian Atonism – the Jewish Jehovah being none other than Aton, Lord of Light. (For more on this great story visit my Irish Origins of Civilization website).
The reason for the many lies regarding Masonry’s deliberately obscured origins is explained in my Female Illuminati program. I show how many cunning lies have been spun about Masonry’s origins, and why. I reveal what Masonic symbolism really means, and who rules from the highest echelons. Controversially, I show that Masonry is not the predominately male institution we have been led to believe. On the contrary, Masonry’s male-dominated parent orders (mentioned throughout this article) were originally founded and controlled by an enclave of supremely powerful females whose existence has been kept secret for centuries. It is the existence and history of this medusan or stygian Serpentine Sisterhood (or Female Dragon Court) which intrigues me personally, and which has never before been exposed to the world. I believe this group’s history is traceable not only to ancient Egypt but to the prediluvian world – to Atlantis.
The full participation of women in the central Mysteries of antiquity went far deeper than was hitherto conceded, and many high profile women were full initiates into the innermost secrets of the Egyptian temples – Tony Bushby (Secret in the Bible)
These shadowy cabals are predators of a kind. They can be countered and even destroyed once we are in possession of the facts about the true nature of evil. Sadly most of us are woefully ignorant about the workings of evil, especially that emanating from higher up the socioeconomic power-pyramid. In our modern age we are extremely backward in subjects of this kind. We may be very humanitarian and caring about what goes on in the world around us, and may care deeply about the plight of our brothers and sisters. Yes, but what good is all that humanitarianism if we fail to have sophisticated knowledge about the predatory tiger in the long grass that works to subvert our good work? What do we know about its origin, mentality and habits? That predator knows a great deal about us, which is why until now it has been winning the GREAT GAME. This situation must change, and soon!
The Female Illuminati program is the result of the painstaking effort of decades. It is a slow piecing together of a controversial world picture in which we are all involved. Like an archaeologist at a dig, you don’t know what the final old parchment or vase will look like. You gradually piece it together until it’s finally assembled, and then stand back to see what it has to tell you about the world of the past. This is what I’ve done over the years, and it’s been a very worthwhile and rewarding commitment.
It’s a great study because it exposes the sick crime-families that have plagued our world for so long, and overcomes the WAR ON CONSCIOUSNESS which has been going on for millennia and which must be brought to an end, come what may.
Truth Against the World
Power of the Templars
|All revolutionaries and murderers since then had been part of a single ‘Templar’ society – including Cromwell, the murderer of Henry IV of France, conspirators in Portugal, Brazil and Sweden, and of course Robespierre and Danton – Edward Burman (The Assassins: Holy Killers of Islam)|
In my program The Female Illuminati I prove that the Knights Templar served as one of the main tentacles of the Sisterhood of Death. I show how the order is tied in with the Egyptian Atonists and Gaonim, and how via the Culdean monks of Ireland they gained access to the troves of wisdom confiscated from the Druids and Bards of the prehistoric west. Their peculiar appearance, long hair, bizarre traditions and suggestive symbolism leads us to the door of the more sinister orders operating behind them, ensconced in Britain a thousand years before the rise of the Templars.
Of course nothing remains static for long in the world of ordinary populations or of secret societies. There have been minor and major disputes, feuds and upheavals on all levels, not to mention short and long-term rivalries between individual members and entire branches of certain shadowy orders. Some internecine squabbles and conflicts become known publicly, while others occur unseen by ordinary people going about their business. Some investigators have written exceptional books on these events to show how the activities of secret societies impact and shape world history. I provide a short list below of suggested titles on the history and rivalries of the Knights Templar, the most malignant and powerful secret society of modern history.
Let’s take a brief look at the affluence, influence and control of the Machiavellian Knights Templar, courtesy of authors past and present:
|…the Templars became the servants and companions of kings and princes: from the beginning they were trusted familiars in royal courts...The financial dealings of the Templars led them straight to the royal treasuries, of which they were frequently keepers. From the early thirteenth century onwards the Temple in Paris was in effect the French Royal Treasury – Peter Partner (The Murdered Magicians)|
Templars came from that section of the lower nobility which supplied the kings with the households servants and officials who did their familiar business. As a result the kings were influential in the affairs of the Temple: both Richard I of England and Saint Louis of France nominated their own candidate to the office of Grand Master of the Temple – ibid
Alexander III was the most lavish of all popes in privileges for the Templar Order, perhaps because he borrowed money from them. From this time onwards the Templars were papal chamberlains and almoners: they were also involved in the collection of crusading taxes…Knights of the Order were often among the pope’s bodyguards and intimates – ibid
Both orders (Templars and Hospitallers) controlled not only the large sums and subventions in kind which came from the west, but also substantial estates in the east which were given them by the governments of the crusading states – ibid
…for a century and a half no important decision was taken in the Holy Land without consulting the Grand Masters of the Military Orders – ibid
The estates of the Templars had been conferred after the dissolution to the Order upon the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, whose successors, the Knights of Malta, still enjoyed some of the remaining incomes – ibid
They were deeply involved in building a supply network throughout Europe for practical survival and were involved in farming, ship building, horse raising, castle construction, weapons manufacture, and accounting. They eventually developed their own clergy and were rewarded with papal privileges that extended far into the realm of politics and warfare. They became a force of their own right, the pope’s private army, free of external allegiance to European kings and the Palestinian baronage – James Wasserman (The Temple of Solomon)
The Order grew extremely wealthy as well, functioning ultimately as bankers for those who traveled the dangerous route from Europe to the Holy Land and sought to protect their wealth by depositing it in trust in European Templar strongholds. The Templars thus developed the modern practice of checking checking accounts. A pilgrim would place funds in Europe and receive a signed certificate of deposit. As he traveled and when he arrived in the Holy Land, he could draw cash from Templar strongholds to meet his needs – ibid
…the Templar order accumulated vast holdings of land in Europe donated by wealthy aristocrats who sought the spiritual benefits of charitable giving – ibid
By the beginning of the thirteenth century the Templars had become the international bankers of Europe and were appointed treasurers to the French royal family and the Vatican – Michael Howard (Occult Conspiracy)
Almost at once the Templars became bankers to every throne in Europe. They lent money to hard-up monarchs at low interest rates and transferred money for merchant bankers…They became money-changers and powerful capitalists who conducted diplomacy between monarchs. In England the Master of the Temple was soon given precedence over all other priors and abbots – Nicholas Hagger (Secret History of the West)
…the Templars held over nine thousand manors all over Europe, plus mills and markets. In addition to these income-producing properties, the Templars had other sources of revenue. Loot taken or shared in by any brother went to the order. During its two hundred years of existence, over twenty thousand initiates brought land or money dowries to the order – John J. Robinson (Born in Blood)
The Knights Templar came to own estates of varying size scattered throughout Europe from Denmark, Scotland and the Orkney Islands in the north, to France, Italy and Spain in the south. In England and Wales alone they had over 5,000 properties. They also extended their interests into Africa, establishing a major presence in Ethiopia, where the Essene Book of Enoch was eventually rediscovered many centuries later – Christopher Knight and Alan Butler (The Hiram Key Revisited)
…the Templars were firmly established in England by 1154 and had already obtained lands, privileges and exemptions of importance. This was the foundation on which the Templars were to build their great edifice of power, wealth and influence – Thomas Parker (The Knights Templar in England)
In their capacity as financial agents of the crown…they became for a time a direct part of the king’s administration…In economic affairs, the Templars played their most important role. Wealthy from their own lands and goods which they managed efficiently, constantly active in trade and commerce which they profited from, and deeply concerned with matters of finance in which they engaged effectively and creatively, the Templars became expert accountants, outstanding administrators, and active promoters of credit…In a very real sense, during the late twelfth and all of the thirteenth centuries, they were the greatest bankers in England, easily overshadowing the Jews, but, but being eventually themselves overshadowed by the Italian merchants – ibid
…the English Templars consistently and quite rapidly expanded their property until they became numbered along the great landlords of the realm – ibid
Besides agriculture, which was practiced throughout England and was their major economic concern, the Templars engaged in trade and commerce and in financial operations. Wool, and to a lesser degree,grain sent to Flanders and France, were the chief import. More important than trade and commerce, but less important than agriculture, were the numerous financial activities of the Templars. The exchange of money, the acceptance of cash and valuables for deposit, the transfer of funds, the issuance of cash and credit instruments, the execution of trusts, and the grant of loans were systematically and widely engaged in. Indeed, until superseded by the Italian merchants in the last half of the thirteenth century, the Templars were the foremost bankers in western Europe. In England, their chief clients were the kings – ibid
The close relationship of the Templars to the English crown is also to be seen in the grant of privileges to them and in their use as officials and advisers to the kings in matters political and administrative as well as economic. To their religious privileges and exemption from ecclesiastical taxation of all kinds and independence from all ecclesiastical authority save that of the pope, must be added their political privileges – granted to them and repeatedly confirmed by all the kings from Stephan to Edward I – and of exemption from secular taxation and ordinary feudal burdens and of jurisdiction over their lands and persons and over those of their vassals and tenants as well. These privileges made the Templars independent of local ecclesiastical and lay authorities and responsible only to the pope and the king. The kings found the Templars reliable and effective as envoys and advisers and as collectors and keepers of royal revenues – ibid
The Templars eventually became so rich that the monarchs of some of the kingdoms within which they operated were wholly dependent on their support. Several kings of England actually lodged the treasury of the realm at the Templar headquarters in London, as surety against the massive debts they ran up with the order. This gave the Templars great power to influence decision-making, and they regularly acted as arbiters for warring monarchs – Alan Butler and Stephen Dafoe (The Knights Templar Revealed)
We are entitled to ask: “From where did the financial impetus to even commence the Templar empire come?” The nine knights who attended the Troyes gathering of 1128 were, according to orthodox accounts, “poor.” In fact, this as reflected in the name chosen for the order because they were the “Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon.” Nothing could be further from the truth, for even if the founder knights themselves were not of middle-ranking aristocratic stock…they had extremely rich backers, not the least of whom was the fabulously rich Hugh Count of Champagne. But all the money in Champagne could not have financed the exploits of the Templars on the field of battle alone – ibid
The Templars were far from being a bunch of holy soldiers. They became involved on a massive scale in international banking and running the biggest fleet of merchant ships seen up to that time. The Templars owned and controlled entire towns and, even more importantly, because of their money-lending schemes, they also controlled the crowned heads of many states, who became deeply indebted to them – Alan Butler (City of the Goddess)
They had entered the scene as “Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ,” but no description could have been less accurate. Among their ranks were to be found the wealthiest people of Europe: leading bankers from London and Paris, among whose customers were Blanche of Castile, Alphonso de Poitiers, and Robert of Artois. The finance ministers of James I of Aragon, and Charles I of Naples and the chief advisor of Louis VII of France were all Templars – Harun Yahya (The Knights Templar)
…the Templars possessed nine thousand manors or lordships in Christendom, besides a large revenue and immense riches arising from the constant charitable bequests and donations of sums of money from pious persons. “They were also endowed,” says James of Vitry, bishop of Acre, “with farms, towns, and villages, to an immense extent both in the East and in the West, out of the revenues of which they send yearly a certain sum of money for the defense of the Holy Land to their head Master at the chief house of their order in Jerusalem” – Charles G. Addison (History of the Knights Templar, 1842)
We have previously given an account of the royal donations of King Henry the First, of King Stephen and his queen, to the order of the Temple. These were far surpassed by the pious benefactions of King Henry the Second. That monarch, for the good of his soul and the welfare of his kingdom, granted the Templars a place situate on the river Fleet, near Bainard’s Castle, with the whole current of that river at London, for erecting a mill; also a messuage near Fleet-street; the church of St. Clement – ibid
The Templars, in addition to their amazing wealth, enjoyed vast privileges and immunities within this realm. In the reign of King John they were freed from all amerciaments in the Exchequer, and obtained the privilege of not being compelled to plead except before the king or his chief justice. King Henry the Third granted them free warren in all their demesne lands; and by his famous charter, dated the 9th of February, in the eleventh year of his reign, he confirmed to them all the donations of his predecessors and of their other benefactors – ibid
In addition to these particular privileges, the Templars enjoyed, under the authority of the Papal bulls, various immunities and advantages…They were freed…from the obligation of paying tithes, and might, with the consent of the bishop, receive them. No brother of the Temple could be excommunicated by any bishop or priest, nor could any of the churches of the order be laid under interdict except by virtue of a special mandate from the holy see – ibid
When any brother of the Temple, appointed to make charitable collections for the succor of the Holy Land, should arrive at a city, castle, or village, which had been laid under interdict, the churches, on their welcome coming, were to be thrown open, (once within the year,) and divine service was to be performed in honor of the Temple, and in reverence for the holy soldiers thereof. The privilege of sanctuary was thrown around their dwellings; and by various papal bulls it is solemnly enjoined that no person shall lay violent hands either upon the persons or the property of those flying for refuge to the Temple houses – ibid
In 1139, a papal bull was issued by Pope Innocent II – a former Cistercian monk at Clairvaux and protégé of Saint Bernard. According to this bull the Templars would owe allegiance to no secular or ecclesiastical power other than the Pope himself. In other words, they were rendered totally independent of all kings, princes, and prelates, and of all interference from both political and religious authorities. They had become, in effect, a law unto themselves, an autonomous international empire – Baigent, Lincoln & Leigh (Holy Blood, Holy Grail)
In England…the master of the Temple was regularly called to the king’s Parliament and was regarded as head of all religious orders, taking precedence over all priors and abbots in the land. Maintaining close ties with both Henry II and Thomas a Becket, the Templars were instrumental in trying to reconcile the sovereign and his estranged archbishop. Successive English kings, including King John, often resided in the Temple’s London preceptory, and the master of the order stood by the monarch’s side at the signing of the Magna Carta – ibid
All religious orders were used by lay people as a safe deposit for valuables, and were asked to lend money when lay people needed cash. The Templars in particular became well known for providing these sorts of financial services for the same reason that they were used by kings as almoners, treasurers, and money carriers: the Order had developed systems for collection, safe storage and transport of large sums of cash and other valuables in the West for carrying to the East. The New Temples in London and in Paris were both much used by merchants for depositing valuables…There are remarkably few accounts complaining about the Templars mishandling money deposited with them – Helen Nicholson (The Knights Templar)
…the Templars would collectively become the richest order in Europe, surpassing even the incalculable coffers of the church – Freddy Silva (First Templar Nation)
…the Templars remained absolutely central to everything that was happening in Europe, and what is more they were partly instrumental in the formation of the Western World as we know it today– Alan Butler and Stephen Dafoe (The Warriors and the Bankers)
These accounts do not include the holdings of closely related orders such as the Cistercians, Hospitallers, Order of Sion, Order of Christ, Order of Montessa, Knights of Columbus, Opus Dei, etc. At the height of their power it is possible the Templars were worth over 1.1 trillion dollars, making them richer than the papacy or any other organization.
Many misinformed and duplicitous writers state that the Templars eventually lost their awesome wealth and faded from the stage of history. This is absolutely false. The public and private records giving this impression were composed and doctored by their own agents, the legion of appointed clerics (the squires, marshals, sergeants, seneschals, stewards, chaplains, etc) who served their masters loyally throughout the centuries until the present. The largely anonymous bureaucratic clerics, who ran the Templar empire, constitute a universal suborder of immense wealth, power, knowledge and influence. They and their hirelings operate above the law. Altering a few historical documents was a walk in the park for them. After the great purge and dispersion of the order, in the early fourteenth century, it was their duty to conceal the identities and whereabouts of their employers, the senior Templars, as well as the evidence of their considerable world holdings.
As we learned from the previous article, there is no mystery about where the original Templars found their wealth. It was not only from treasure found in Solomon’s Stables beneath Temple Mount, which was considerable, or from donations from nobles throughout Europe. It primarily came from the elusive descendants of the even more ancient Atonists (or Setians), probably via the Gaonim who required a cover as they relocated their headquarters and theater of operation to Europe, Britain and America. Recent evidence from the Essene “Copper Scroll” uncovered under the sands of Qumran corroborates this contention:
|Feather’s argument very adequately describes why and how this migration of Israelites from Egypt during the Exodus happened to be carrying with them treasure and a treasure map. The possibility exists that part of this treasure was the actual wealth of Moses himself as the prince of Egypt, probably also the wealth of the monotheistic priest caste that still existed at the time of Moses and with which he identified – Prof. Ellens (Introduction to Robert Feather’s The Mystery of the Copper Scroll of Qumran: The Essene Record of the Treasure of Akhenaten)|
The Copper Scroll alone provides details showing that the Essenes possessed colossal wealth traced to the Atonists of Egypt. Professor Feather estimates the amount of gold and silver, in modern currency, amounts to over 1.5 billion dollars. This wealth, allegedly secreted in several locations in Israel after the Roman destruction of the second temple of Jerusalem, in AD 70, has never been located. Of course it could have been discovered and appropriated by the Templars.
The stupendous wealth of the Templars also came from their secret business dealings with the Silesian Pirates (of Persian extraction), and wealthy Italian merchants who supplied them during their stay in the Holy Land during the First Crusade. Many Italian merchants and men of great wealth made up the Order of Knights Hospitallers, a group closely associated with the Templars. The former order still exists under the name Knights of Malta. Their headquarters is in Rome, near Vatican City. They also operate under a Protestant guise – The Order of St. John of Jerusalem – with their head and patron, Queen Elizabeth II, being blood-related to Andrew Bertie, deceased head of the Knights of Malta.
The Templar’s wealth also came from another source – money-lending. It was adopted from Italian bankers who preceded the rise of the Templars. Although as Christians the Templars were not able to openly lend money at interest, they overcame this problem by secretly conscripting certain French, Spanish and Portuguese Jews who profited from usury. The vast wealth accumulated by Jewish bankers is not, therefore, their own. Jewish oligarchs have long been in a “tassel to purse” relationship with their Templar superiors, a fact still to be widely acknowledged. Their acts of money-lending and banking offers clear proof that the Templars are Christian in name only. The religions of Christianity, Islam and Judaism have long served as useful fronts for secret societies of this elite level.
It is likely that the Gaonim – who had long been goddess worshipers hiding behind a front of religious Judaism – later emerged as Freemasons, and also as the Sabbateans, fronted by Sabbatai Zevi and Jacob Frank, one of the co-founders of the Illuminati. Many elusive secret societies hide behind the veil of orthodox Judaism and Christianity. Indeed, Emperor Constantine, the founder of orthodox Christianity, was himself a lifelong member of shadowy Sol Invictus, an Atonist-Mithraist sect. The members of these perverse societies have nothing but contempt for ordinary Jews and Christians. They are the bizarre “mystic brotherhoods” Helena Blavatsky warned about.
The Merovingian dynasty of France was apparently partly descended from the Sicambrian Franks, a Germanic tribe. They were not only efficient warriors but were mainly farmers. They later became goldsmiths and gold merchants. and not surprisingly nobles and regents. Their expertize with gold and precious metals accounts for a great deal of the Templar’s wealth. As we see from the quotes above, the Merovingian-Templars subsequently became Europe’s premier money-lenders and bankers. Historians recognize that from early on the reputation of the Merovingians was less than wholesome. Historian Hutton Webster tells us:
|The descendants of Clovis are called Merovingians. They occupied the throne of the Franks for nearly two hundred and fifty years. The annals of their reigns form an unpleasant catalogue of bloody wars, horrible murders, and deeds of treachery without number. Nevertheless, the earlier Merovingians were strong men, under whose direction the Frankish territory continued to expand, until it included nearly all of what is now France, Belgium, and Holland, besides a considerable part of Germany – (Early European History)|
A few scholars have noted similarities between the Templars and the ancient Essenes, and there can be little doubt that both the Templars and Cistercians borrowed some customs and beliefs from this obscure Jewish sect apparently descended from the priestly Israelite Order of Zadok (or Melchizedek).
Moreover, in the 12th century, writer John of Salisbury compared the Templar Knights to the Judite warriors who followed and fought with the heroic and messianic Judas (Judah) Maccabeus against his Seleucid enemies in the second century BC. The Maccabean family was allegedly descended from prominent Levite priests (or Kohens) of old. More likely, they were a branch of the Setian-Atonist nobility or Order of Melchizedek (Akhenaton).
The alleged connection between the Templars and ancient Judites isn’t fictitious or fanciful. If the Templars were descended from the Essenes or a related group, they would regard themselves as legitimate recipients of the colossal wealth mentioned in the Copper Scroll. This explains their peculiar antics in the Holy Land during the Crusades, digging like moles for years in Solomon’s Stables, and elsewhere.
Delving into their origins we find that these Frankish (German) Merovingians may have descended from, or at least related to, the infamous Tribe of Benjamin. Their history directly bears on the existence of the Templars. Like the Templars, the Benjaminites, descended from the eponymous son of the patriarch Jacob, were a warrior class. Curiously and suggestively, Freemasons often refer to themselves as Benjaminites. Even more crucially, it was the Benjaminite tribe whose members were the first rulers of the holy city of Jerusalem, after the erection of the first temple. Indeed, the Benjaminites think of Jerusalem as their personal property. Interesting that the later Templar leaders founded their order there, on the site of the Benjaminite’s coveted Temple of Solomon. Allegedly, Mary Magdalene herself – icon of the Templars – was a Benjaminite. I find this to be of central importance.
The dark side of the Tribe of Benjamin is well recorded. They are, in fact, a renegade tribe, and Judite women were once forbidden to marry men of the tribe, in an attempt by other tribes to obliterate the Benjaminites. Their crime involved rape and murder. Members of the tribe assaulted and gang-raped the concubine of a Levite priest as he and his entourage passed through Benjamite lands. After the concubine died from her wounds, battles broke out, and the number of Benjaminites was drastically reduced. The remainder were thereafter officially and rightly vilified and expelled from the region. According to legend they made their way west to Greece. One of their kings there was known as Danus. They may have had a settlement in Troy, Turkey, which is why they named their later Burgundian city Troyes. Interestingly, before their crime, punishment and exile, their first king was Saul. Despite the priestly mythmongering, we see that Saul is nothing less than Sol the sun. In other words, the name Saul (like Danus) is a pseudonym for Akhenaton, king of the sun (Aton). As far as I am concerned, this reveals the Benjaminite-Setian-Atonist-Merovingian connection. (Here for more…)
Because they were rejected and exile by the other Israelite tribes, the Benjaminites were the first to marry in with non-Israelite families. I think we can guess what this implies. It is also possible that after their arrival in Arcadia (Greece), the Benjaminites returned to polytheistic worship. This is logical because the Sicambrian Franks were themselves matriarchal. The change may have occurred due to intermarriage with obscure families in the west. It may also be due to the fact that the Benjaminites, after being made renegades, willingly aligned themselves with the Dragon Court or Sisterhood – the Female Illuminati.
In my opinion this was certainly the case. I believe this accounts for the Jewish bloodline to be found in those we know as the Merovingians. We might speculate that the Merovingians have been in their service since their arrival in France and probably from before. King Clovis adopted Christianity in 481 AD, merely as a convenient cover to further territorial and military ambitions. This expedient strategy of adopting a socially accepted persona was most probably taught to the Merovingians by their Benjaminite ancestors who, after secretly abandoning the patristic traditions of the Israelites, officially hid behind a mask of orthodox Judaism.
This accounts for why the insignia of the great Merovingian leader, William de Gellone, was a pentagram on a blue field, symbolizing Mary Magdalene. The Merovingians were ancestors of the German and Dutch Royal House of Orange. The color orange not only signifies Mary, but Aton – the revealed, solarized face of the hidden deity Set.
It is possible that Set was androgynous, and was therefore worshiped in both male and a female forms. (Set has been linked with the serpentine Apophis or Apep, a female underworld deity). Since, in my opinion, the Atonists and Sisterhood were (and still are) covert Set worshipers, we see that the fantastical story of King Merovech’s birth, from a queen and sea-monster makes skin-crawling sense. (Here and Here for more…)
In any case, it is these ancient cabals whose agents later emerge into the half light of history as the Gaonim, Merovingians, Rosicrucians, Templars, Masons, Martinists and Illuminists – Atonist-Setian societies one and all.
|The correspondence of the Illuminati in fact contains several references to an inner ring under the name of ‘the secret chapter of the Lodge of St. Theodore,’ which, after his initiation into Masonry, Weishaupt indicated the necessity of bringing entirely under the control of Illuminism. It is probable,” says one historian, “that Weishaupt was in touch with this secret chapter before his formal admission to the lodge” – E. Cahill (Freemasonry and the Anti-Christian Movement)|
That such an “inner ring” existed, and that Weishaupt had some connection
with it, is further indicated by a certain document that was found at Mirabeau’s house describing a new Order to be grafted on Freemasonry…This plan, found among Mirabeau’s manuscripts after his death, was devised in 1776, the same year the Order of the Illuminati was founded – Father Clarence Kelly (Conspiracy Against God and Man)
|The fantastical story of King Merovech’s birth, from a bathing queen and amorous sea-monsteris most revealing. The conflation of a female and sea-serpent subtextually connotes Apophis. As the Egyptian god of the underworld, Apophis (or Apep) was actually female, and has been associated with Set. This is the likely origin of the so-called Mermaid – a sea-creature half fish, half female. It is no accident that we see this deity used today by the world’s top corporations. It is also suggestive that the symbol for Christianity is the fish. The fish or sea-monster is simply a colorful metaphor for the sinister Dragon Court or Serpentine Sisterhood, understood by initiates. (Here and Here for more…)|
|The Virgin Mary, Our Lady, Mother of God – the preeminent female icon of Christianity. The trouble is she’s one hundred percent pagan in origin. She stands upon the serpent, but is she really crushing it as we have been led to believe? She might be arising from it, or be a manifestation of it. Is it her foundation and talisman as the symbolism subtextually denotes? To the cultists behind Christianity and Judaism, Apophis is the original great mother. The apple in the serpent’s mouth connotes Eve, the earlier Old Testament Lady of the Serpent. In the Female Illuminati program I show how many goddesses of the ancient world, on whom Eve and Mary are based, were associated with serpents. Mary is often seen with 12 stars around her head and a crescent at her feet, the crescent of Venus. She is Mary Lucifera. (Here for more…)|
|The symbolism reveals all. Officially, the lion represents England and the unicorn Scotland. However, esoterically the golden lion represents the illustrious and ancient Atonists (the Judites or Order of Melchizedek/Akhenaton), the descendants of which direct the world’s more obvious secret societies, be they Catholic or Protestant in complexion. The white unicorn represents their loyal, efficient lieutenants, the Judites, Gaonim, Templars, Masons, College of Cardinals, Illuminati, etc. Note the chain around the neck of the unicorn. It’s a reminder of the pecking order, the status quo, and the punishment expected for disloyalty and disobedience. The unicorn represents the passive moon which reflects the light of the sun, or more correctly of the Sun Lords, the Princes of Light.|
Occasionally, the lion is stylized to appear dragon-like. In this instance the animal represents the female Dragon Court. (Here for more…)
|The Templars adopted the symbol of the beehive after their tiresome work of digging in the stables of Temple Mount came to an end. Prior to this time the bee was revered by the Merovingian nobility and the ancient Judites (Benjaminites). It is also employed as a key symbol of hierarchy and order by Templars and Freemasons. Suggestively, at the center of the beehive lives the Queen Bee. Again, the symbolism speaks volumes. The bee, therefore, in this context, represented the sect of priestesses presiding over higher grade initiations partaken by Templars, kings, acolytes and adepts who thereafter (as warrior-monks and priest-kings) serve them and the “hive.”|
According to historians on the Templars, Merovingian King Baldwin IV and his cousin Philip of Flanders (Philip I) were visited by a mysterious band of monks (from Orval, Lorraine) led by a strange character known as Ursus. The group were received and protected by Philip and his wife Mathilde, Duchess of Lorraine – also known as Infanta Theresa of Portugal – aunt of head Templar Godfrey de Bouillon. By the year 1108 the elusive group had vanished from the area and scene. One known member of the company was Peter the Hermit, who along with Philip is believed by some commenters to be the chief architect of the First Crusade which encouraged western knights to travel east, seize Jerusalem and destroy the Saracens. Interestingly and suggestively, the term Ursus connotes a bear, a seminal symbol of the goddess from time immemorial. Suggestively, the infamous Order of Sion was established on Mount Sion, by Godfroi de Bouillon, almost immediately after the strange band of monks left Mathilde’s court in France and vanished into smoke.
|For the Sicambrian Franks, from whom the Merovingians issued, the bear enjoyed a similar exalted status…they worshiped the bear in the form of Artemis – or…Arduina, patron goddess of the Ardennes…Given the magical, mythic, and totemic status of the bear in the Merovingian heartland of the Ardennes, it is not surprising that the name “Ursus” – Latin for “bear” – should be associated in the “Prieuré documents” and the Merovingian royal line – Baigent, Leigh, Lincoln (Holy Blood, Holy Grail)|
|Mathilde of Flanders (1157-1218) was also known as Theresa of Portugal. She was the daughter of King Afonso, one of the most ardent and loyal Templar patrons. She became the Duchess of Lorraine and Flanders after her first marriage to the super-wealthy Count Philip of Flanders (modern Belgium). She later became the Duchess of Burgundy after her second marriage to Otto, Duke of Burgundy. According to legend, she was the first noblewomen in the west to lay eyes on the Holy Grail. Suggestively, the Order of Sion was created on Mount Sion, outside Jerusalem, in her name by her powerful nephew Godfroi de Bouillon, based on instructions from his tutor Peter the Hermit and his elusive monks of Orval. The full name of the temple site was the Abbey of Notre Dame de Sion. Godfroi’s original group was named the Knights of the Notre Dame de Sion (Knights of Our Lady of Sion). The site was also referred to as the “Mother of all Churches.” One chamber within the abbey was called the “Chamber of the Mysteries.” Mathilde – of Italy, Lorraine and Portugal – was most probably the Order of Sion’s first female chief and patron, the male knights, monks and nobles acting as her agents. Note her red hair. Before Mathilde, the proto Order of Sion (the Cult of Venus) was probably led by the famous Eleanor of Aquitaine. Later, during the fifteenth century, the probable head was either Margaret of Anjou or her sister Yolande of Lorraine. From them leadership may have passed to the House of Tudor in England, although in the seventeenth century the likely head was Elizabeth Stuart, Queen of Bohemia, ancestor of the present queen of England, Elizabeth II. The Order of Sion was known as the Priory de Sion after 1188.|
Suggestively, it was at the behest of Mathilde that the first “Holy Grail” epic was composed by Chretian de Troyes, who received his commission from the Duchess. The Grail was brought from Jerusalem to France by Hugh de Payens who, after allegedly finding it beneath Temple Mount, gave it and other treasures into her keeping. Of course the Grail is simply a clever metaphor for the Cult of Venus, or Female Illuminati, and the transmission of their power from east to west. (Here for more…)
The most detailed Grail legend comes from Parzifal, by medieval writer Wolfram von Eschenbach. According to Eschenbach, the details of the story came originally from a Spanish Jew called Flegetanis. This character was more than likely a descendant of the Benjaminite branch of the Merovingian dynasty, and as such was almost certainly an acolyte of the Female Dragon Court.
The cauldron, cup, chalice, gaal or grail is a seminal female symbol representing the sacerdotal priestess cults of antiquity. It turns up in the form of a flat salver or plate in the Biblical account of Salome and John the Baptist. That story subtextually reveals the supremacy of female priestesses over male subordinates, be they kings, dukes or princes. We cannot pause to further extrapolate the story’s symbolism here.
The word grail comes from gradus, meaning “by degrees,” “stages” or “steps.” This alludes to the grades of a Masonic-type society. This is the society headed by Mathilde and many others before and after the era of Chretian de Troyes. A secondary meaning of the word is Sang Rael or “Holy Blood,” again a reference to the Sisterhood. The word gradus was later wrongly rendered cratis meaning basket or container, hence the connection with a cup. Suggestively, on the architecture of the north porch of Chartres Cathedral (dedicated to the female), we see the figure of the Old Testament demigod Melchizedek holding a chalice. Melchizedek is a cryptic reference to Akhenaton and the order descended from his progeny. We see then that the true significance of the so-called Holy Grail is to be primarily understood in terms of a hierarchical secret society, and secondarily as a container of blood. We also see the significance of the Templars as supposed keepers of the “Grail.” It doesn’t pertain to Jesus, as so many falsely believe. It is simply the vessel containing the severed “head” or castrated penis of the son-lover-knight-champion in his mother-goddess’s service.
In history, among these occult societies, physical rites of castration were commenced at special astrological times, particularly in the month of August. Astro-Theologically, the Grail symbolizes the movement of the sun, moon and planet venus into Virgo – sign of the Virgin. A constellation known as Crater (Chalice) is found in the sign of Virgo, which was and is ritually significant to the Sisterhood and related orders. Therefore when the sun passed into Virgo, auspicious and bizarre rituals and layings were performed. The marriage of Cana refers to this astrological period, and many of the imposing structures in Washington DC and Philadelphia were laid during this period. Documents such as the Declaration of Independence were also either commissioned, signed or made public when the sun or venus moved into Virgo, thereby signifying them as being under the auspices of the goddess.
|The keepers of the Grail were female, for good reason. As I show in the Female Illuminati program, in ancient Egypt and other lands, women were initiated into, and commanded, the highest levels of the most illustrious secret societies, not men. To rise within the female order, a male acolyte had to offer up his phallus, hence the symbolism of a cup containing “blood.”|
Although there is little written about the women behind and beside the great thrones of Europe and Britain, and even less said to be believed, it is time to pay greater attention to the role of the mothers, wives, daughters, sisters and female patrons who helped shape history as much as the men they bore, nurtured and inspired. On a symbolic level we’ve been told loudly enough that Queen Helena was the true founder of Christianity. Her Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem stood on the site of a temple of Venus. It was Margaret of Scotland who took a shine to William St. Clair and gave his family the land on which Rosslyn Chapel was built. It was Mathilde of Saxony who patronized the Cistercians. Eleanor of Aquitaine and her daughter Marie de Champagne patronized the Templars and grail author Chretien de Troyes. Mathilde of Portugal allegedly lay eyes on the Grail. On and on it goes. The Templars venerated Mary Magdalene and St. Euphemia. The patron saint of the Knights Hospitaller was the Lady Philermos. Bernard de Clairvaux was devoted to the Virgin Mary and bore the personal title ”Knight of the Virgin.” The skull worshiped by the Templars was that of an unknown female not a male. Even the long hair of the Templars connotes the female. Godfrey de Bouillon was crowned monarch of Jerusalem in the oldest Templar abbey in Jerusalem, known as the Mother of all Churches. The full name of the Order of Sion was “Order of Our Lady of the Mount of Sion.” Old paintings of King Fulk of Jerusalem show him at his crowning and marriage holding the Fleur-di-lis, the symbol of the female Dragon Court.
Not including Mathilde herself, there were six queens of Jerusalem during the period of the crusades. They include Morphia of Edessa (wife of Baldwin II), Sibyllia (mother of Baldwin II), Isabella (daughter of Sibyllia), Maria of Montferrat (daughter of Isabella) and Melisende de Anjou (eldest daughter of Baldwin II). At least three of these reigning queens were Aleramici Franks or Merovingians. Isabella I was a scion of the Ibelin dynasty, which like the related Anjou family, were blood-related to the Houses of Lorraine, Hapsburg, Valois, Savoy, Bourbon, Saluzzo and Guelf, etc. The Anjou dynasty, like the House of Ibelin, were major patrons of the Templars. (Here and Here for more…)
Two other important female patrons were Eleanor of Aquitaine and Marie de Champagne. There have been many others. (Here for more…)

…grants of land, both royal and private, were made to the Templars in England during the reign of King Stephen…being made by his wife Matilda…Stephen of England was a member of the distinguished crusading family, being the son of Stephen of Blois, his wife was a member of the Boulogne family closely associated with the crusading movement…Hugh de Payens was from Champagne, an area controlled by Stephen’s family…and Godfrey of St. Omer, another of the original founders of the Templars was a vassal of the Boulogne family – Thomas Parker (The Knights Templar in England)
|Count Fulk of Anjou was King of Jerusalem from 1131 to 1143. Here he is seen marrying Melisende (daughter of Baldwin II) who ruled Jerusalem alongside him. Note how she wears the crown and how the pope’s head is toward her, not the king, indicating her bloodline or occult supremacy. Her mother Morphia was wife of Templar Baldwin II, the previous King of Jerusalem. Morphia ruled beside him as queen. Melisende’s son was Baldwin III, King of Jerusalem. (Here for more…)|
|Matilda of Boulogne, wife of British King Stephen I, grandson of William the Conqueror. Both Mathilda and Stephen were French and possessed lands in France as well as in England. The leading Templars, such as Hugh de Payens and Godfrey St. Olmer, were their vassals. Hugh himself was born in Champagne, a district owned by Stephen’s family, the Blois, while St. Olmer was a vassal of the Count of Boulogne. Stephen and Mathilda donated large sums of money and acres of land to the Templars. Matilda was probably their first officially known royal female patron. Most writers on Templar history never mention any of the high-born, super-wealthy females who supported their cause. (Here for more…)|

What Do the Symbols Tell?
|Even common sense dictates that the story of nine knights patrolling 33 miles of road between Jaffa and Jerusalem to protect thousands of pilgrims from brigands, thieves, Saracens, and mountain lions is a preposterous idea – Freddy Silva (First Templar Nation)|
The chicanery concerning the Templars begins with their full name: The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon. It would be comical if it were not so despicable. The only things the knights were poor in was humanity and morality. Their seal depicts two knights riding a single horse. The word “horse” doubles as the pun “Whores,” an insider reference to the Sisterhood of Death (probably adopted due to the false legend in which Mary Magdalen is purported to have been a prostitute).
The reason for the two knights on a single steed probably hearkens back to the time when the Knights Templar and Order of Sion (Sisterhood) were united comrades in arms serving the same causes. Their break in the 12th century, and subsequent alleged rivalry, changed the history of the world. The continued rise of what we know as Protestantism possibly being one outcome of the rivalry. The Order of Sion is not, as many allege, a mythical group. Disinformationalists and the media have gone to great lengths to make it appear that way, although a careful study of the symbolism employed by the order confirms their authenticity, antiquity and true identity. It is crucial when we study secret societies that we distinguish between the way they are presented to us in the media and the way they actually are. The first way is certainly to be regarded as largely fraudulent.
Some disinformationalists attempted to deny any legitimate historical connection between Freemasonry and Templarism, preferring to have people believe that the connection was made in the eighteenth century by conservative mythmakers (such as Chevalier Ramsay, Charles Radcliffe, Samuel Rosa, Karl von Hund and others) who supposedly wished to attract upper classes to Masonry by creating the impression that the fraternity was historically linked with noble romantic crusading knights. Some believe Masonry was linked with the Templars in order to attract Catholic members. Others believe Templar imagery was incorporated into the higher “mysterious” degrees of Masonry to lure those of an esoteric bent. More astute observers and insiders (such as Nicolas de Bonneville, Samuel Pritchard, Augustine de Barruel, Christoph Bode, Marquis de Luchet, Louis de Gassicourt, Joseph Hammer, Eliphas Levi, and others) correctly knew and warned that Masonry had been gradually but systematically infiltrated by Templars whose ancestors had been forced underground during the fourteenth century. This fact was cleverly obscured by mythmakers whose writings made it possible for later commenters to present the connections between Templars and Masons as falsities espoused by incorrigible romantics or cunning self-serving pranksters and mythomaniacs.
|Another clue that the symbol proudly displayed by the Templars did not denote poverty was that the Templars were one of the richest societies that ever existed. Their wealth and properties extended from the Middle East to Western Europe. Individual knights could not own personal property of any value…But as members of their Order they had castles, armor, horses and the like in great profusion, and wanted for nothing. Poverty was not what made them special – Sanford Holst|
William, archbishop of Tyre, had regarded the Templars and Hospitallers as a force for disintegration and lawlessness in the kingdom…he saw that by his day they had become too rich and proud, refusing to do obey the authorities over them by God: the patriarch of Jerusalem and the king – Helen Nicholson (The Knights Templar: A New History)
The title “Poor Knights of Christ” is probably a reference to the original Christians – followers of Jesus who went by the titles Jesseans, Ebionites, Nazarenes, Nazoreans and Naassenes. The Ebionites referred to themselves as the “Poor Men,” a reference to their intellectual simplicity as well as their low social status. The Templars adopted the term because of its less recognized meaning, hearkening to the fact that the Ebionites considered the teachings of Jesus an extension of Old Testament Judaism. For them there was no essential difference between Paul’s Christ and the Messiah of the Jews. We see that Paul’s attempt to exalt these original Christian sects was somewhat disingenuous. They were not as radical as he wanted to make them appear. The term “Poor Knights” is therefore a cryptic concession to Judaism, or more correctly to the Essenes to whom they were undoubtedly connected either biologically or ideologically.
Deeper research into these ancient sects and their beliefs reveals that the Templars may have been secretly and heretically adhering to the teachings of John the Baptist rather than of Jesus Christ. Many events in the Templar world correspond with the date July 24, feast day of John the Baptist.
Godfrey de Bouillon, the Duke of Lorraine and Monarch of Jerusalem (1060-1100). His orange-colored robes and orange fruited coronet allude to Mary Magdalene and the cult in her service. Queen Beatrix of the Dutch House of Orange is a direct descendant of his bloodline. She and the latter-day royals of this prestigious dynasty are ostensibly Protestant, for all it means.
The actual origin of the Templars is shrouded in mystery. The order’s early biographers were not eye-witnesses and lived after the order was established. It was probably Godfrey de Bouillon who, after the first crusade, formed his Templars as an extension of his smaller group, the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre. He probably patterned his order on the earlier established Knights Hospitallers headquartered nearby (at Amalfi). Godfrey’s new order seemed to have some difficulty deciding whether they were a military or monastic society. Originally there were nine knights: Hugh de Payens, Geoffrey de Saint-Omer, Rossal, Gondamer, Geoffrey Bisol, Payen de Montdidier, Archambaud de St. Agnat, Andre de Montbard, and the Hugh Count de Champagne. Hugh was an incredibly wealthy nobleman. His fellow knight Hugh de Payens (Paganus or Pagan) led the order after de Bouillon died. He and Bernard de Clairvaux helped increase the recognition and reputation of the Templars in the early years.
We have romantic ideas about knights and their chivalry and valor. However, Bernard de Clairvaux himself remarked openly on the perfidy of most of the crusading knights setting out for the Holy Land under the flag of Christianity. He wrote: It is really rather convenient that you will find very few men in the vast multitude which throngs to the Holy Land who have not been unbelieving scoundrels, sacrilegious plunderers, homicides, perjurers, adulterers, whose departure from Europe is certainly a double benefit, seeing that people in Europe are glad to see the back of them…It is certainly beneficial to those who live on both sides of the sea, since they protect one side and desist from molesting the other. So much for the virtue of the Templars. It is for good reason that both the Church and the people regarded the knights as bloodthirsty opportunistic churls. As far as I am concerned, their character and motives did not become any holier through the years. Clairvaux and de Payens had merely to indulge in sophistry to sugar-coat and sanctify the vile deeds of their troop of knights, making their outrages appear moral and Godly. Until their disbanding in the fourteenth century the Templars were known for admitting brigands in flagrant breach of clerical law.
The present-day royals of the Netherlands and Great Britain are directly related by blood to the French House of Orange and line descended from Godfrey de Bouillon. These families, even the Protestant branches, are also blood-related to high-ranking Jews of the Middle East. One of their most important ancestors, William de Gellone, was known as “Hook Nose.” This Jewish branch is undoubtedly descended from the Benjaminite and Gaonim-Atonist sects of antiquity. I believe the Gaonim were the remnant of elite Sadducees and Pharisees who went underground after the Romans destroyed the Temple of Solomon in 70 AD. Officially, the Sadducees disappeared from the pages of history. This is of course patent nonsense. They had been in collusion with the Roman elite and many other prestigious groups and families throughout Europe and the Middle East. The Merovingians were but one branch of their elusive, illustrious Benjaminite-Atonist-Judite bloodline.
This picture shows buildings on Mount Sion (or Zion) in Jerusalem most important to the Templars.
|1. Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem|
2. Temple Mount
3. The third site beneath Temple Mount was Solomon’s Stables
During the First Crusade, Godfrey and his knights lived in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (beside the Dome of the Rock). The Church was allegedly the spot where Jesus was crucified, interred and resurrected.
Temple Mount was allegedly the site of the second Temple of Solomon. The stables underneath originally served as a large storage area for the rebuilt Temple. The earlier site of the original Temple of Solomon (destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BC) is nearby. It is known as the Dome of the Rock. Some believe it was also the site of Herod’s temple.
The Templars began digging in Solomon’s Stables, and allegedly unearthed “treasures.” Some scholars believe this included valuable coinage and also a cache of ancient Essene scrolls revealing that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene and that a holy Davidic bloodline existed in secret rivaling the papacy. The ancient Essenes were believed to have practiced secret rites on Temple Mount. Some scholars believe this was the reason the Templar leaders made a bee-line for it, spending years digging there. They apparently knew what they were looking for.
Suggestively, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre was actually constructed on the orders of Queen Helena, the daughter of King Cole of Britain and mother of Emperor Constantine the Great. She is said to have discovered the site of Christ’s crucifixion and ordered the construction of a church over the spot. Her pilgrimage to the east (approximately 325 AD) is most interesting, given that the site for her new Christian church was actually over a temple dedicated to Venus. I speculate that she met with priestesses of the Cult of Venus, possibly to be initiated by them and made into their agent despite her Christian facade. (Her son Constantine was a member of the Sol Invictus cult.) Indeed she may already have been one of their number before visiting Jerusalem.
In this case Christianity a la Helena was really a blending of the new with the old, with the approval of the Cult of Venus (Order of Sion). It is interesting that according to Christian legend, Helena also discovered and owned a piece of the original cross upon which Jesus was crucified. As preposterous as the tale is, in symbolic terms it means that Helena, not her son Constantine, was the true founder of the Christian religion.
In any case the Templars who later frequented the “Church of Helena,” and named their order after it (her), might have been initiates and agents of the earlier Venusian sect. (The name Helen or Helene is akin to Selene meaning “moon,” and also connotes a flaming torch, another major goddess symbol.) A domed temple appears on Templar coins and insignia, along with the orb and cross which make the symbol for the planet and goddess Venus. (Venus was also depicted with a beard.) Their black and white flag and other emblems connote a dual allegiance and tradition. I strongly believe that women central to Merovingian and Templar history – such as Mary Magdalene and Mathilde of Flanders, etc, were, – like Queen Helena, Eleanor of Aquitaine and Marie de Champagne – priestesses of this elusive Cult of Venus or Order of Sion. Male orders such as the Templars serve simply as their external deputies. (Here and Herefor more…)
|The survey so far has shown that contemporaries and near-contemporaries were not sure when the Order of the Temple began, or why it began, or who was responsible for its beginning – Helen Nicholson (The Knights Templar: A New History)|
It was at Tomar (Portugal) that the Templars built their mother church, and as was their custom, they dedicated it to Mary Magdalene – Freddy Silva (The Lost Art of Resurrection)
The Cistercian Order, formed by Bernard de Clairvaux, was the monastic wing of the Templar Order. The Cistercians still exist today. The Templaresque Rite of Strict Observance, formed in Germany by Baron Karl von Hund, after the expulsion of the Stuarts from Britain, takes its name from the earlier Templar-Cistercian Order of Strict Observance. It is difficult to find a Masonic tradition not permeated with Templar motifs, and even more difficult to find a malesymbol employed by Templars and Masons. (Here for more…)
|The system of Freemasonry to which Hund was introduced – a further extension of the Scottish Rite – was subsequently called Strict Observance. Its name derived from the oath it demanded, an oath of unswerving, unquestioning obedience to the mysterious “unknown superiors.” And the basic tenet of the Strict Observance was that it had descended directly from the Knights Templar, some of whom had purportedly survived the purge of 1307-14 and perpetuated their order in Scotland – Baigent, Leigh, Lincoln (Holy Blood, Holy Grail)|
The Cistercians and Templars were preceded by the elusive and less known Tironensian Order, ensconced in Scotland and elsewhere as early as the eleventh century. The bulk of the Templar’s liquid wealth was probably entrusted to members of this order after the great purge in the early fourteenth century. According to researchers the treasure was subsequently moved and hidden underneath Rosslyn Chapel, and later quietly shipped over to Washington DC, where it remains to this day, as whistleblown by movies such as “National Treasure.” (Here for more…)
In fact, the horde was probably buried on the Canary Islands which had been rediscovered and properly charted in the early fourteenth century by the Templars.
The Cistercian-Templars also funded the comparatively less known secret society known as The Grange, which operates behind religion and government in the United States. The Grange is an elusive order headed by members of the Female Illuminati, known to insiders as the “Venus Families” or “Venus Bloodline.” (Here for more…)
The floor of the United Grand Lodge of England in Great Queen’s Street London. An appropriate street name, to say the least. The lodge has stood on this spot since 1775.
The United Grand Lodge of England developed from the merger of two important lodges – the Grand Lodge of England and the Antient Lodge, with strong but downplayed connections to Ireland (and probably connected to the elusive Tironensian Order). The Antient Lodge was formed in 1751 to rival the Grand Lodge’s brand of Masonry which arose during the reign of the Hanoverian royals (the so-called “Black Nobility”). Originally, the Antients believed that Grand Lodge Masons has perverted the tenets of Freemasonry, considering themselves to have preserved the original secrets and intent of Masonry in their s0-called Royal Arch Degree dating back to Irish Masonry. Royal Arch Masonry became popular, especially in America. Interestingly, the Antients attached a great deal of importance to John the Baptist, whose festival day (June 24th) happens to coincide with the Summer Solstice. The reason for this is because, according to arcane lore, John was first married to Mary the mother of Jesus. They had their own son, Josephes, adopted by Jesus after John’s arrest and execution. In this context, Josephes is the son of the Matriarch, the sacred “Virgin” representing the female Dragon Court.
In 1813, the Grand Lodge of England, under the control of the Hanoverians, and the Antient Grand Lodge of England merged, forming the United Grand Lodge of England, headquartered in London.
In my opinion, Antient Masons were, like the Tironensians, a branch of the Knight Templar organization, with its emphasis on the importance of John the Baptist and its Royal Arch and Mark Masonry degrees and associated rites. As said, John the Baptist is a clever cover for the female Dragon Court that conceals itself behind Templarism and Masonry.
|…after the new Lord Derwentwater resigned fromhis position in this Jacobite Masonic system, Templarism (under cover of the Stuart cause) “boldly came forward and claimed to be not merely a part of Masonry but the real Masonry, possessed of superior knowledge and entitled to greater privileges and the right to rule over the ordinary,i.e., Craft Masonry” (Father Clarence Kelly quoting Nesta Webster)|
Irish secret societies, such as these, preserve the more ancient Culdean system which, from behind a Christian veneer, cannibalized and repackaged the earlier Druidic or Aryan mystical traditions. The Culdean monks were the foremost tutors of the Merovingian Kings and Templar nobility. This all-important western connection is explored in depth in my books The Irish Origins of Civilization.
Allegedly the nine tail feathers on the eagle which emblazons the Great Seal of the United States of America symbolize the nine original Templars. This is not as far-fetched as it seems, since the number thirteen – a key Templar number – appears numerous times on the one dollar note (see program). On one level we see the arrows as representative of the Templars and the olive branch of the Cistercians, the two branches of the super-secret order, military and monastic. The arrows may also represent the age-old quest for vengeance that drives the orders I speak of. Their new order of the world must replace their lost thrones in Egypt. The motto around the eagle’s head – From the Many One – also iterates this methodology and denouement. (See program for a complete analysis of the Great Seal.)
The Templar seal depicted the two knights riding a single horse. The reverse of the seal depicted the Dome of the Rock, on Temple Mount in Jerusalem, a few hundred feet west of where the legendary Temple of Solomon allegedly once stood. Temple Mount was home to the Templars for approximately seventy years. This is why mountains, mounds, hills and hillocks are used as symbols by Templars and their scions. Consider places such as Shooter’s Hill, Capitol Hill and Camp David, the Grassy Knoll, as well as names such as Stormont, Claremont, Piedmont, Montferrat, Montagu, Mountbatten, Montrose, Mountjoy, Montgomery, and so on.
The Templar crest shows two fair-haired female angels on either side of the shield. The shield, helmet, belt (garter) and maidens cryptically refer to the Sisterhood. The supposedly Protestant Order of Mark Masons (headed by Prince Michael of Kent) have a crest with red crosses and twin towers. The tower is another seminal female symbol. The goddess name Astarte means “High Tower.” Mary Magdalene’s name comes form Magdala meaning “tower” in Aramaic. At the top of the crest we see a crown, and atop the crown we see an orb and cross, the astrological symbol for the planet Venus. This symbol is known as the Sovereign’s Orb. It is not a Christian symbol. The fleur-du-li on the crown and bottom of the garter represents Mary and the Sisterhood of which she was once the head. The red cap within the crown is known as the Cap of Maintenance. This alludes to the fact that all monarchs and sovereigns are merely stewards or placeholders. They maintain dominion until the return of the banished heretic king and pope Akhenaton. A secondary reading of this symbolism pertains to the gradual establishment of a Masonic global super-state.

Jacques de Molay, the Templar Grand Master burned at the stake on Friday 13, 1314. Actually, out four thousand knights only about five hundred were caught and tried by the authorities. The majority simply vanished from the scene and went underground. Some were absorbed by the Knights Hospitaller on the island of Rhodes, others by the Order of Christ and Order of Montessa in Portugal and Order of Malta, now headquartered in Rome. Some became pirates while others fought the Moors for the royals of Spain. Many went to England and Scotland where papal injunctions against them were slow to take effect. The arrests and confiscation of their properties yielded little for the Pope and King of France. Most of it had been expertly squirreled away. Molay trusted Pope Clement and did not suspect that he and his brethren were to be arrested. He was one of only a few hundred Templars to actually undergo torture and execution. The notorious revolutionary movement known as the Jacobins was named after him. This sect of Illuminists was behind the chaos and mass-murder of the French Revolution. This event, like many others in history, was regarded by Templar-Illuminists as an act of revenge for their suppression, torture and ransacking, and for de Molay’s sentence and execution. The De Molay International is also named after him. This order remains active today.
|When the Templars were attacked in the 1300s, only a few hundred of them were arrested, out of the several thousand people in their Order. The rest disappeared behind a veil of complete privacy, becoming fugitives of powerful leaders of church and state – Sanford Holst|
Guess Who? Does the Shroud of Turin depict the death face of Jesus, as we’ve been expertly led to believe? No, this is the face of Jacques de Molay, head of the Templars, executed on Friday 13, 1314.
The crest of the De Molay International, a Templar-Masonic order named after Jacques de Molay. The Masonic coffin frequently seen on emblems, friezes and tapestries in Masonic lodges refers to de Molay the Templar martyr. It also doubles as a symbol of Hiram Abiff, the architect of the Temple of Solomon. Each and every Masonic temple is designed to represent the Temple of Solomon, so there is no substance to Masonic denials that there is no connection between Masonry and Templarism. This idiotic denial comes about because Masonic traditions and agendas have been competently exposed by numerous non-Masonic mavericks, causing many secrets to come to public attention, thus inciting worry and consternation among both Masons and Templars. As said in the previous article, Masonry has been well and truly infiltrated by the Templars and their agents. Templar traditions entered English Masonry in the form of the York Rite and other avenues. In America, Masonry is dominated by the Templaresque Scottish Rite, de Molay, Knights of Columbus, and other fraternities. In Europe the Templars operate behind the Jesuits, Martinists, Grand Orient Lodges, Strict Observance, Nine Sisters Lodge, Bavarian Illuminati, and other equally important chivalric orders such as the Order of Christ, Order of the Holy Sepulchre, Knights of Malta, Knight Hospitallers, Order of St. Lazarus, Order of Montessa, Rite of Memphis, etc. The complete list is much more extensive. The clandestine infiltration of Masonry was suspected by astute insiders from as early as the eighteenth century, and perhaps earlier.

The proof for this lies in the symbolism employed by Masons. As I show elsewhere, the Templar suborder of clerics was responsible for these gradual take-overs. So when we see the symbol of the drawn sword, or crossed swords motif, on Masonic and quasi-Masonic emblems and regalia, we understand that it signifies vengeance and acts of reprisal against rivals and betrayers.
The swords represent the revenge sought by Molay’s descendants. Indeed, the infamous Jacobins were established by his descendants and followers to foment havoc and serve as the prototype of many other European revolutionary and anarchistic sects, such as Young Italy, the Carbonari. Ireland’s United Irishmen and later the infamous Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRA).
The helmet is actually a female symbol denoting the goddess Minerva, also known as Pallas-Athena. Note how the ring of stars on a blue background resembles the emblem of the European Union. The crescent is not Islamic and does not represent the moon. It represents the goddess Venus. The planet Venus has twophases, appearing as the morning star and evening star. The ministers and acolytes of the Cult of Venus, or Female Illuminati, employ the crescent, horse, owl, helmet, apron, garter, belt, spear, tower, red rose, red cross, letter G, and other symbols to denote their tutelary goddess. The Masonic apron, like the gloves, come directly from the Templars. Templars were forbidden to remove their aprons, even while bathing. Allegedly, it symbolized their “celibacy.” However I prefer to believe that it represented their ritual (or on occasion physical) castration and obsessive devotion to the secret Sisterhood and tutelary goddess Venus. Suggestively, in occult circles Mary Magdalene is known as the Lady of the Crescents, alluding to the rising and setting (morning and evening) positions of Venus.
It doesn’t get more blatant than this. From a frieze in the Supreme Court Building in Washington DC, we see Minerva dictating the US Constitution. (Artist William Wetmore Story). Notice that she wears the helmet. It isn’t a masculine symbol as we normally conceive it. We find goddess symbols everywhere in the centers of power in the US, from the Statue of Liberty to the Oval Office. (Here and Here for more…)
The Grand Orient Masonry of Duke d’Orleans (Louis Philippe Joseph), was the child of a secretive Templar-Masonic system established in the city of Lyon, known as Chevaliers Bienfaisants (Knights Beneficent – “Generous” or “Goodly Knights”). Top heavy with elite Sabbatean Jews, Lyon is near Septimania and provinces frequented by the ancestors of the Atonist House of Orange, a dynasty traced to Mary Magdalene. Her descendants presently sit on the thrones of Holland and Britain. The infamous Lodge Theodore is a branch of the Chevaliers Bienfaisants Lodge. Members from these lodges soon permeated Europe’s many Masonic enclaves, as well as the majority of state organizations and institutions. From this order comes the Masonic degree known as the Knights Kadosh, which, among other things, commemorates the death of Jacques de Molay. It commemorates the oath of Masonic “freethinkers” to overthrow royalty and religion, thereby avenging Molay’s arrest and martyrdom. Henceforth, the world’s monarchs and leaders have been selected, installed and guided by the Rosicrucian-Masons and Templars. Scottish Rite and Adam Weishaupt’s Illuminati were nothing less than branches of the Templars in this guise. Weishaupt was described as the most “zealous” of the members of Lodge Theodore.
|The fact is, Weishaupt did not corrupt continental Masonry. The corruption had begun long before his Order rose to a position of power. He merely completed the corruption, organized it, and directed it – Father Clarence Kelly (Conspiracy Against God and Man)|
The word Lyon connotes lion, the most important emblem of the Atonists after the solar disk. We note that the Queen Mother’s surname was Bowes-Lyon, after the prestigious Scottish Clan Lyon, and that Glen Lyon in Scotland is a haunt of the powerful arch-Atonist Menzies family. More importantly, Lyon in France is known, in secret society lore, as a destination and haunt of the infamous Kolmer, none other than Hapsburgian noble Charles de Lorraine, supreme patron of the Illuminati. (Here for more…)
|The Hapsburgs were also members of the House of Lorraine, and therefore prime candidates for membership of the Priory of Sion – Colin Wilson (Atlantis Blueprint)|
Karl Gotthelf, Baron von Hund (1722-1776) was a Templar agent active in France and Germany. His job was to seduce certain royals and members of the nobility into the new Templar-Masonic lodges and systems. He was a member of “Scottish Masonry;” a name that implies Atonism not Scotland. In any case, seniors within this order feigned support of the Stuart monarchy. Baron von Hund attempted to induct Bonny Prince Charlie (Charles Edward Stuart) into the Scottish Rite. He is also credited with the establishment of the Templarist branch of Masonry known as Strict Observance. Although some researchers deny any solid allegiance between Templar Masonry and Catholic royalty, few facts are given to substantiate their position. Although it is true that many nobles eschewed secret cabals of this kind, others were and still are top members and supporters (see below). Formally, Strict Observance is associated with Germany, whereas Scottish Rite is primarily associated with France. (Here for more…)
Inigo Jones (1573–1652) was one of England’s chief architects, responsible for numerous majestic squares and buildings in London and elsewhere. He was also one of the architects of the new brand of Masonry transported to Britain from the Continent. This more sinister form of Masonry was heavily imbued with Rosicrucian and Templar elements. (Here for more…)
The Rose Cross is a female symbol referring to Venus. Adopted as a symbol by Rosicrucians, it is found on earlier Templar edifices. The red rose (used by Rosicrucians and Templars) is also a Venusian symbol. According to myth the red color of the flower is from the spilled blood of Venus’s sacrificed son-lover Adonis. Again we have the implicit motif of ritual wounding (castration) central to Masonic tradition. The wounded pelican does not represent Jesus but Lucifer, who was “wounded” by his fall from heaven into the underworld. The ritual phallic wounding of a Mason – disguised as the Templar vow of celibacy – is connoted by his wearing of the apron, also a patently female motif. The compass appears because it is a symbol employed by Scottish Rite Masonry. This is interesting since it was the Rosicrucians (Templars) who introduced the Scottish Rite and related degrees into Masonry in the 18th and 19th centuries. The more familiar Scottish Rite emblem is the double-headed eagle, originally employed by European monarchs, particularly by the largely Catholic Hapsburgian dynasty. The crown at the top of the jewel represents the chief Atonist – Pharaoh Akhenaton and his descendants. The point being that although certain royals and powerful Masonic individuals and families cleverly maintained the window-dressing of Christian belief, they had privately returned to pre-Christian forms of worship.
Some scholars trace the rose symbol to Persian or Mithraic cults. This is acceptable, given the closes ties that existed between the original Templars and the Silesian Pirates, Assassins, Sufis, Ishmaelis, and other Middle Eastern secret societies. There can be little doubt that the Templar brotherhood was associated with pre-Islamic (and even anti-Islamic) Persian (Iranian) cults of the time, hidden behind the veil of Sufism and Islam. These Mithraic sects had been in decline for some time, and are by no means to be necessarily identified with those of a more authentic type from ages past. The latter were certainly affiliated with the high Druids of the West, dominant before the rise of Islam and Christianity. The Mithraic cult adopted the rose emblem as the universal symbol of the Goddess. Adopted by Templars, Rosicrucians, Masons, and so on, the emblem always connotes the supreme Goddess and the super-secret Sisterhood operating in her name – known in the West as the Priory de Sion.
Another prominent Scottish-Rite emblem, the Cross and Crown. Note that the cross is red, revealing it as identical to that employed by the Templars. The higher chivalric or Templaresque degrees of Masonry are known by Masons as the “Red Degrees” to distinguish them from the first three “Blue Degrees.” This means that the terms “red” or “reds” connotes the Templars. The crown represents Akhenaton and his solar cult descendants. The motto In Hoc Signo Vincesmeans “In this sign I conquer.” This was allegedly the sign seen in the sky by Emperor Constantine, official founder of Roman Christianity. The double meaning is to Lucifer and his earthly lieutenants.
According to Juri Lina, some of the wealthiest Jews in America and Canada belong to Scottish Rite lodges.
|The Scottish rite of Freemasonry, oldest of the Masonic lodges employed|
to provide shelter for the Templars, was established in the 14th century by
Templars seeking refuge in Scotland. It became an example for the rest to follow. The titles of the Scottish lodges’ highest ranks continue to be identical to those given to the Knights Templar centuries before – Harun Yahya (The Knights Templar)
These “Jews” are really Sabbateans or initiates of the Luciferian sect headed by Jacob Frank and before him by Sabbatai Zevi. This sect goes back to the Tribe of Benjamin, and to the even earlier Atonists or Setians. These occultic Sabatteans are contemptuous enemies of normal religious Jews, who are treated as useful idiots and prey like the rest of humanity. (Here and Here for more…)
The Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (or Shriners) is a high-level branch of Scottish-Rite Masonry. Many prominent politicians, magnates and media personalities are Shriners. Note the face of Pharaoh Akhenaton and five-pointed star. The inverted crescent alludes to the planet and Cult of Venus. The scimitar alludes to the rite of symbolic (or on occasion physical) castration. The chosen servants of the Great Goddess are invariably castrati and eunuchs. As said in the previous article, there are oriental branches of Atonism as well as western branches. Many Roman soldiers and even emperors were members of quasi-Masonic orders from the East, such as the Cult of Mithras (which was really the cult of the goddess Cybele), of Ammon, Dionysus, Priapus, Serapis and Sol Invictus, etc. The Shriner order probably commemorates the days when the Templars fell away from Christianity to absorb Atonism and other bizarre hybrid Oriental traditions. Within the Shriners are female orders known as The Ladies’ Oriental Shrine and the Daughters of the Nile. The latter name is most suggestive (see program). A related branch of the Shriners is the bizarre Quetzalcoatl Order. (Here for more…)
The flag of the Templars is black and white, as seen on the floors of Masonic halls. The red cross is the official emblem of England, appearing as “St. George’s Cross.” Suggestively, the red cross also turns up on the regalia of Britain’s most prestigious chivalric orders of the Garter and order of St. Michael and St. George, the members (Knights) of which are appointed by Queen Elizabeth II herself. Would Protestant chivalric orders not be averse to employing the symbols of their supposed rivals? Are there not a myriad other symbols to favor? The round Templar Chapel stands right in the heart of the city of London, a city covered in Templar symbolism, a city which controls the entire world. Coincidence of course. (Here for more…)
|…the Templars remained absolutely central to everything that was happening in Europe, and what is more they were partly instrumental in the formation of the Western World as we know it today. The Templar state was, and is, Switzerland –Butler and Dafoe (The Warriors and the Bankers)|
It was in Geneva that the League of Nations was formed after the First World War, and it was also from Geneva that the International Red Cross sprang up in the 19th century. Earlier still, Switzerland had fostered the embryonic notion of Protestantism, which without the important bastion it found in Geneva, may never have survived to challenge the retarding and corrupt influences of the all-powerful Catholic Church in the 16th and 17th centuries – ibid
The crest of the Knights Hospitaller. They were established around 1060 AD, about 60 years prior to the Templars. They eventually morphed into the Knights of Rhodes and finally the Knights of Malta. Still in existence today, and one of the oldest chivalric order in the world, some researchers believe they were entrusted with the bulk of the Templar treasure trove after the latter was threatened with extinction by papal authorities in the fourteenth century. Although ostensibly and officially Catholic, this order shares a great deal in common with the Protestant Order of St. John (full name The Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem). Indeed, the previous head of the Knights of Malta, Andrew Bertie, was fourth cousin twice removed to Queen Elizabeth of England who heads the Protestant Order of St. John. The full name of the Catholic Hospitallers is The Order of Knights of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem. Although this name might sound august and holy, the John referred to is John the Baptist. We see that these two orders (Catholic and Protestant) and their satellite branches are not truly Christian.
The Hospitallers moved from Rhodes to Cyprus to Malta and from there to different locations in Italy. Indeed the earliest group of Hospitallers was made up of Italian merchants who had dedicated themselves to charitable works in the Holy Land eventually receiving permission from the pope to militarize themselves. Eventually in later times, as the “Knights of Malta,” the Hospitallers established themselves in Rome where they remain to this day, their HQ not far from the Vatican. Their members sit at the United Nations representing a sovereign body or nation, and are legally speaking a law unto themselves. (Here for more…)
Suggestively, in the main hall of their headquarters is a painting of Salome holding the severed head of John the Baptist. As I show in the program, this symbolism actually pertains not to the male John, but female Jean or Joan. To this day the patron saint of the Knights of Malta (the Hospitallers) is “Our Lady Philermos.” The motif of decapitation is itself a cryptic allusion to castration, performed by true devotees, acolytes and ministers of the Great Goddess. The androgynous double-headed eagle symbolically confirms that the Hospitallers are a dyadic institution. (See program for more on this…)
|According to the “Prieuré documents” every grand master, on assuming his position, has adopted the name Jean (John) – or, since there were four women, Jeanne (Joan).

The Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, of Rhodes and of Malta (known as the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM), Order of Malta or Knights of Malta for short) is a Catholic order based in Rome, Italy…Its two headquarters in Rome, namely the Palazzo Malta in Via dei Condotti 68 (where the Grand Master resides and Government Bodies meet), and the Villa Malta on the Aventine (which hosts the Grand Priory of Rome, the Embassy of the Order to Holy See and the Embassy of the Order to Italy), are granted extraterritoriality – (Wikipedia: Entry on the Knights of Malta)
After the official suppression of the Templars, conflicts arose between them and the Hospitallers. Some of these conflicts were serious enough to change the course of history. It is my belief that the conflicts were finally settled and that over time the Hospitallers were – like the Portuguese Order of Montessa and Order of Christ – well and truly infiltrated and finally taken over completely by the Templar clerics.
It is likely that the clerics thereafter adopted the colors of the original Knights Hospitaller as their own. In this case the white cross should be considered their primary emblem. Before the suppression of the Templars their colors were brown and green. Of course we see that the white cross is a simple but effective symbolic transposition or inversion of the Templar red cross. Note the many banks, credit unions, insurance agencies, property agencies, developers and other businesses employing this and similar red and white logos. (Here for more on the clerics…)
The regalia of the most prestigious Order of the Garter, Britain’s highest order of chivarly. The red cross appears. It will be said that this is simply because it is the emblem of Great Britain. But the truth is that the emblem derives from the Templars. So Catholic or Protestant as the front may be, there’s a common esoteric thread running beneath the surface. The “Garter” referred to is a blue belt that encircles the shield and red cross. This serpentine garter represents the Sisterhood. Symbolically it represents being “twice born” and bonded or tethered to a new life and mission. Most garter-belts feature a fleur-du-li representing the Order of Sion or Sisterhood. At the coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth II, on June 1955, Handel’s majestic anthem “Zadok the Priest” was sung. Zadok is none other than Melchizedek, a cryptic reference to Pharaoh Akhenaton.
Far-fetched as it sounds, the symbolism tells us that this ostensibly Protestant order is not unconnected with the Templars.
|The insignia of a knight of the Order of the Garter consists of a jewelled collar composed of gold and red roses with five petals contained within tiny garters…Hanging from the collar is a representation of St. George, the patron saint of England, killing the dragon – Baigent, Leigh, Lincoln (Holy Blood, Holy Grail)|
…the traditions of the Templars seems to have taken on a new guise, under the Order of the Garter, founded by Edward II’s son, Edward III King of England. Edward III’s sister, Joanna, married David II King of Scotland, the son of Robert the Bruce. While, in exile in the French court, it was David who created the The Guarde De Ecosse, derived from the Templar faction known as Scots Guard who came to the aid of Robert the Bruce. As the Scots Guard continued through the years, two of the prominent families involved in its history were the Sinclairs and the Stuarts. In France, they become the Personal Bodyguard to the French Kings – David Livingstone (Terror and the Illuminati)
The memorial statue of founder and head of Scottish-Rite Masonry, the Templar-Luciferian Albert Pike, in Washington DC, near the House of the Temple. Note the female holding the standard of Scottish-Rite Masonry. Is this mere decoration or a clue in plain sight? After all, one is hard pressed to find a single bone fide masculine symbol anywhere in Masonry. As I show in the program, the eagle is a female emblem. Note the female figure sitting at the base of the statue holding the banner with the Double-Headed Eagle. This female alludes to Meritaten herself, and the banner to the Scottish Rite of Masonry dedicated to her – Scota’s Rite.
We are being told that the male figureheads of masonic-type orders merely do the bidding of a more secretive order, hidden in plain sight. Only by reaching the 33rd degree or higher will the average male member be made aware of this fact, and understand the reason for the symbolic leitmotifs habitually employed by their orders.
As to the symbolism on the banner, it reveals that royal dynasties as illustrious as the Hapsburgs (whose crest features the Double-Headed Eagle) are descendants of the Setian-Atonist of old. Hapsburgian nobility funded the Illuminati.
The ithyphallic obelisk, column, pillar and plinth are also goddess symbols. The goddess name Astarte means “High Tower.” The name Magdalais Aramaic for “Tower.”
The famous image of Baphomet as depicted by French occultist Eliphas Levi, beside a statue of George Washington in Washington DC. Attempts to play down the significance of this Templar image fail when we think of the statue. Why would it be designed to represent the icon if the icon had no significance or was just the brainchild of a crank? Those who commissioned this prominent statue showed no doubt on the matter. The statue was designed to replicate the icon because the latter has genuine significance to occultists, and most importantly to Templars. The zoomorphic figure is clearly female, note the breasts. The flaming torch connotes Helen or Helene, a name which alludes to the Female Illuminati or Luciferian Cult of Venus. Indeed the twin crescents represent the two “phases” of the planet Venus which appears both as the morning and evening “star.” The five-pointed star also represents Venus as well as the Cult of Venus, and the flame between the horns represents the light of Lucifer or Venus. (Lucifer is a word that can be directly linked to the planet Venus.) A Templar motto mentions Mete or Ma’at, the Egyptian goddess of virtue and balance. The word Baphomet comes from Ptah and Ma’at(connoting the male creator and female creatrix), and also connotes Baph and Metis, meaning “Baptism in Wisdom.” Met or Mete is also a cryptic reference to the god Mitra or Mithras, son of Cybele the Great Mother Goddess. (Papal headgear – the mitre – is also derived from this name.)
The Templars evidently think they are the wise ones of the world. Their treasures are not only of jewels, gold and silver, but of books and literature pilfered from the ancient Arya – the Servants of Truth. Significantly, Eliphas Levi was against the Templars. Like other perceptive European sages, he knew of their surreptitious intrigues and activities. It is therefore more than ironic that his design was parodied by the builders of the George Washington statue.
As I show, the Templars did not disappear after their suppression in the early fourteenth century. Many Templars simply joined the Knights Hospitallers, now the Knights of Malta, while others fled the limelight, their order in the hands of their anonymous clerics. In 1908, members of the Martinist Order of France called for the establishment of a new order based on Templar traditions. Who was the leaders of the obscure Martinist society, Martinez de Pasqually and his disciples Louis Claude de Saint-Martin and Jean-Baptiste Willermoz? Why call for and establish a neo-Templar order? In my opinion these three men were themselves little else than Templars setting about re-establishing their ancient society in public view. In other words, the Martinists were yet one more quasi-Masonic cover under which descendants of authentic Templars hid themselves. The Martinists had a great effect on high degree Masonry. That their chief emblem is the Star of David, reveals their Judaic (Setian-Atonist) affiliations.
The Templars and their bureaucratic, efficient clerics formed numerous satellite orders through which they continue to successfully control world events. One of the most powerful of these being the Knights of Columbus. Note their use of the skull. This symbol is extremely ancient and ultimately traces back to prehistoric Ireland. In any case, the symbol was adopted by the Templars because their chief supporters and advocates – men such as Bernard de Clairvaux and King Dagobert II – were tutored in Ireland by Culdean (Atonist) monks. Dagobert’s first wife Mathilde was an Irish princess. The skull was also adopted because it cryptically recalls not only the martyrdom of Jacques de Molay and Hiram Abiff, but more importantly of Pharaoh Akhenaton.
The Templar Order also includes the Cistercian Monastic Order, the religious wing of the order. The Cistercians, created by Bernard de Clairvaux, owned hundreds of priories and abbeys and thousands of acres of land throughout Europe. Although he was endowed with finances from Hugh de Payens, where Bernard got the enormous funds to build his initial eighty eight priories remains a mystery. A great many of these structures were deliberately built over earlier pagan sites sacred to the Celts and pre-Celts. Most of the major Templar-owned structures, such as Rosslyn Chapel, stand atop leylines and vortices of the earth-grid, replicating earlier geomantic techniques first devised in the prehistoric west. In many cases they stand over sites sacred to the Great Goddess. Officially, we believe this practice indicated suppression, but it also could represent absorption. Is Christianity merely the latest front for the ancient Cult of Venus? The symbolism leaves us in little doubt on the matter. (Here for more.)
Did the Gaonim create Protestantism? It sounds preposterous and yet is very likely the case. The elite Sadducees disappear from history. Where did they go? St. Paul (Josephus Piso, the Roman agent) creates Simple Judaism, better known as Christianity, for his Roman masters. Why couldn’t the secretive Gaonim first establish the Rosicrucian Order to protest against the excesses of the papacy, and then have their members Martin Luther and John Calvin establish a rival religion? Luther’s notebooks feature the rose and cross of the Rosicrucians, while Calvin was Jewish, real name Cauin or Cohen. As shown in Article I, the Rosicrucian symbolism derives from the Templars. Scholars accept that the Puritan Sir Francis Bacon’s secret order – the Fra Rosi Crosse Society – was linked to European Templar societies. So much for the Protestant-Catholic rivalry and divide. Bacon was also a member of the Knights of the Helmet, named after the goddess Minerva. (Here for more…)
In the next Article I show that many of history’s leading lights, such as Luther and Calvin, may have been crypto-Sabbateans hiding behind Judaism, Christianity and Islam, hating the hosts unwittingly giving them precious cover. (Here for more…)
Ireland’s powerful Black Preceptory or Royal Black Institution conceals itself behind the better known Orange Order. Ostensibly ardently Protestant, we find that their symbolism derives directly from the Templars. The red cross, cross and crown, skull and bones, coffin and triangle are all bone fide Templar symbols. The very term preceptory denotes a Templar dwelling. As said above, the Templars infiltrated many societies which did not thereafter become Catholic as one would expect. This anomaly has not been sufficiently addressed or explained by historians and commenters. To find a fanatically Protestant secret order drenched in Templar symbolism is therefore markedly unusual. We must not accept official reports and accounts of the origin and nature of such orders and cabals. Although the parades of the Orange Order take place in Northern Ireland on July 12, the Black Preceptory conducts its marches on the following day, July 13. Both celebration days mark the sun’s highest point in the zodiacal arch. This is not a coincidence, given that fraternities of this kind are branches of ancient Atonism. Additionally, the Templar Grand Master Jacques de Molay was executed on Friday 13. Since then the number has been adopted as a cryptic sigil by the Templar Order. No wonder they smile. The joke’s most definitely on us.
Charles de Lorraine (1712-1780) and his brother Francis de Lorraine (1708-1765). Francis was the Holy Roman Emperor and an outspoken Mason. Born Roman Catholic he was initiated into the largely Protestant Grand Lodge of England, founded by Protestant King George I. Charles was the true founder of the Bavarian Illuminati. Born Roman Catholic, he directed and partly financed Adam Weishaupt and the other Illuminists. He was also the head of the Order of Sion. We see from this that normal religious divisions mean little and that the Illuminati’s apparent anti-royalist stance was a complete fraud. Suggestively, the Grand Lodge of England was founded on June 24, 1717, St. John the Baptist’s day. St. John was patron of the Templars and Hospitallers. Both Charles and Francis wear the pendant of the Order of the Golden Fleece, traditionally an exclusively Catholic chivalric order. We have had bloody genocidal religious wars in Britain and Europe, some lasting decades and centuries, but behind lodge doors they are all pals. How are we to explain this?
Napoleon Bonaparte and his pompous nephew Napoleon III. Both men were installed and guided by the European Templars, and both furthered Templar policy during their reigns. Napoleon III saw to it that rival Masonic enclaves and lodges were undermined and closed. Their occult background and influence endorsed the Europe-wide revival of Templar-Rosicrucian style Masonry. Significantly, the revival received papal approval. No doubt the Pope himself was a Templar installation.
|The tolerance of secret-societies during the Napoleonic dynasty led to a revival of Templarism. In March 1808 a neo-Templar Order held a public requiem for Jacques de Molay. This requiem was presided over by the Abbe Pierre Romains, the Canon of Notre Dame, who was the primate for the revival of the order – Michael Howard (Occult Conspiracy)|
It is strange how Masonry, being what it is, has always managed to get a princely or noble leader for every one of its distinct onward movements against princes, property, and society. It had Egalite to lead the movement against the throne of France in the last century. It had the Duke of Brunswick, Frederick II and Joseph II to assist. In this century we see it ornamented by Louis Philippe, Napoleon III, Victor Emmanuel and others as figure-heads; Nubius and Palmerston, both won from the leaders of the Conservative nobility, were its real chiefs – Monsignor Dillon (Grand Orient Masonry Unmasked)
The oath taken by one Masonic brother to always aid another in times of distress is actually a Templar tradition. English Masonry took on a Templar complexion as from the arrival of the Sinclair family to Scotland in the fourteenth century, and overtly in the sixteenth century during the reign of James I of England (James VI of Scotland). This accounts for why the York Rite as well as the Scottish Rite, Grand Orient and Strict Observance branches of Freemasonry are replete with Templar symbols and traditions. Although the complexion of Masonry changed because of the Templar’s surreptitious presence, strangely and suggestively it did not become Catholic. The majority of commenters are unable to cogently explain why this is, given that the Templars, from the time of their inception, were apparently ardent Catholics and defenders of the Church. However, the puzzle is explained when we realize that the Templars ceased being Christian from early on in their career. Probably from before their suppression by the Church they were sworn converts to Luciferianism. In other words they had long been disciples of the Gaonim and Cult of Venus. (It is officially accepted that the Templars were closely associated with Eastern sects such as the Assassins and Armenian and Lebanese Christians, etc.) Henceforth Catholicism, Protestantism and Masonry serve as convenient camouflage. In my opinion, what goes for Masonry also goes for the Jesuits, the College of Cardinals in Rome, and the many other “Catholic” chivalric orders also infiltrated and controlled by descendants of the Templars and their agents. One doubts if there is a true Christian among any of these orgs. Certain Catholic potentates knew about the problem and fearing the gradual increase of Templar-Masonic power, and subsequent loss of their own tyrannical hegemony, attempted to limit their influence. Pope Clement’s pontifical letter In eminenti was drawn up in an effort to prevent Catholics from joining Masonic groups. In each century from the fourteenth warnings from the Church went out warning believers to avoid association with Masonic societies.

Replete as it is with Christian symbolism, York Rite Freemasonry still espouses Templar beliefs – probably to a greater extent than any other branch of Freemasonry – ibid
In September 2001, Barbara Frale discovered a copy of the Chinon Parchment dated 17–20 August 1308 in the Vatican Secret Archives, a document that indicated that Pope Clement V absolved the leaders of the Order in 1308. Frale published her findings in the Journal of Medieval History in 2004. In 2007, the Vatican published the Chinon Parchment as part of a limited edition of 799 copies of Processus Contra Templarios. Another Chinon parchment dated 20 August 1308 addressed to Philip IV of France, well-known to historians, stated that absolution had been granted to all those Templars that had confessed to heresy “and restored them to the Sacraments and to the unity of the Church” – Wikipedia Online Encyclopedia (Entry on the History of the Knights Templar)
There can be little doubt that senior members of the Templar Order moved to assume control of Catholicism, and via their clerics succeeded in doing so. It would not have been too difficult a process, given that the Templars (and related orders such as the Cistercians) are ostensibly Catholic organizations, and that both Templarism and Catholicism are branches of the more ancient and corrupt tree of Egyptian Atonism. The change of management probably occurred during the late nineteenth or early twentieth century. It accounts for the gradual turn, after the Second World War, of Vatican-based popes toward Socialism. (See my article The Red Papacy, for more on this.)
The insignia associated with the Islamic religion and Moslem countries is purely female. Mary Magdalene is known in occult circles as the “Lady of the Crescents.” The crescent represents Venus, and the white star denotes Venus as the famous “Morning Star” (the esoteric Lucifer or Shekinah). The color green also pertains to the goddess. Allah was originally based on Allat, a goddess. The Kaaba at Mecca is actually her shrine. It is my belief that the Templars (and Shriners) are the brain behind Islam, and the rise of Islamic extremism. Many of the agitators from the Middle East where trained and educated in the west.

Insignia of the powerful Counsel on Foreign Relations, the American branch of Chatham House or the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London. Compare it to the Knights Templar symbol. The horse is a Venusian symbol standing for the steering enclave of the all-powerful Sisterhood. The rider’s hand makes the V sign toward the heavens, saluting the rise of the planet Venus or Lucifer, as it was also known. The scroll beneath the horse features the word Ubique, meaning “Everywhere” or “In all Places.” Studying the image, we might ask whether the rider controls the direction of the steed, or vice versa? The horse symbol is also suggestively similar to that found on the flags and crests of the infamous Guelph Dynasty, the s0-called “Black Nobility” of Europe. Queen Elizabeth II of England, and the Windsor family, are related to this ancient crime family whose origins trace back to the Templar-Merovingians of France. Does this mean that the American CFR is under British control? The answer is yes. (Here for more…)
Cuckoo organizations such as the Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses are, given their suggestive symbolism and overall tenets, branches of the Templars, serving many clandestine purposes. Note the cross and crown and armor symbols and the tower which directly alludes to both Astarte and Mary Magdalene. Charles Taze Russell, the founder of the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Zion’s Watchtower Society, is commemorated by a pyramid shaped headstone clearly of Masonic design. The Mormons initiate their young into missionaries with the proclamation “In the name of the Melchizedek Priesthood…” These words are spoken before the name of Christ is mentioned. Melchizedek or Zadok are cryptic pseudonyms for Aton.
Modern-day Templar-funded organizations include the bizarre and super-wealthy Scientologists. Other fronts include the Rosicrucians (AMORC) and Martinists.
The solar symbol employed by the Jesuits goes back to the Atonists. Solar symbolism is both revealing and concealing. In regards the Templars, Atonists and Setians, etc, the solar symbolism that frequently appears about their kings nobles and servants, serves to conceal their true identity. As the image above tells us, there is something beneath as well as behind the bright rays of the sun.
We see what looks like an angel and a monk either side of the fallen Satan (Dionysus). What are they doing? Are they worshiping the sun or the Fallen One? Does the female angel represent the Sisterhood? In Masonry we find rituals of the resurrection of a character known as Hiram, but the ritual of his return to life actually pertains to Lucifer. Of course the story of the fall of Lucifer or Satan is merely a cryptic metaphor for the all too physical fall of Pharaoh Akhenaton, the renegade heretic king who lost his precious throne not in heaven but in Egypt. Akhenaton’s name and saga have been cunningly concealed by Masonic groups, behind appellations such as Zadok, Melchizedek, Moses, Aaron, Solomon, Hiram Abiff, Lazarus, etc. Images of expulsions, lost tribes, wastelands, skin-wearing prophets, fallen temples, broken columns, coffins, severed heads and skulls, etc, also pertain to Akhenaton’s loss of pharaonic power.
The Austro-Hungarian Empire crest, and that of the Catholic Hapsburgs and related dynasties hearkens back to the Hittites and Sumerians. It probably symbolized the symbiotic relationship between the “gods” and their priesthood. The double-headed eagle (the ancient insignia of royals) can be seen today displayed on the Knights Templar Palace in Jerusalem and on Templar architecture all over the island of Malta. It is the insignia of high degree Scottish Rite Masons who deem themselves the modern-day priesthood. Note the orb and cross, representing the Cult of Venus. The sword representing the male sub-orders is held in the opposite claw. The sword also represents the Setian-Atonist’s age-old quest for vengeance against all who oppose their New World Order.
On an occult level the double-headed eagle represents the twin orders that rule the entire world through their many deputies – the Setians and Atonists. The light and the “lost light.” The sun and the dark side of the sun. A face partly revealed, partly concealed. Black squares, white squares. Cross and crown. Divide and rule. Order ab Chao.

|We must allow all the federations to continue just as they are…organized as they are at the present, but we must create a super rite, which will remain unknown, to which we will call those Masons of high degree whom we shall select. With regard to our brothers in Masonry, these men must pledge to the strictest secrecy. Through this supreme rite, we will govern all Freemasonry which will become the one international center, the more powerful because its direction will be unknown – Albert Pike|
The split between the Templars and their parent, the Order of Sion, certainly occurred in the twelfth century. Most experts on the Templars believe the breach was never healed and that world events took shape due to the ongoing conflict between the opposing branches. As said above, the rise of Protestantism was possibly one consequence of the breach, the result of some Order of Sion elite families moving from France to Holland and converting to the new religion.
Other astute commenters know that there was nothing authentically Christian (Catholic) about the Templars. Their allegiance lay elsewhere, and in my opinion the Templars were nothing less than the male front organization for the all-powerful Female Illuminati, operating at the time under the guise of the Order of Sion. The high initiates of this order care little about which of the two religions they’ve created is adopted as a cover by this or that deputy. It’s simply window-dressing – a means to subversive ends.
However, I believe we must also consider the possibility that the breach between the Templars and Order of Sion was at some point sufficiently healed. Perhaps the rivalry between the groups has therefore been a faux rivalry, a made-to-order opposition by which the desired ends of both factions are efficiently attained. Perhaps the two “rivals” have secretly been working in consort for centuries, and the obvious and open polarities – Catholic vs. Protestant or Atheist vs. Religious, etc – have been preserved as convenient and expedient smokescreens. This is after all what Albert Pike’s own writings suggest. It is also what the Templar motto implies – In this sign I conquer. Two crossed swords are seen near this motto as well as the cross and crown. It is also implied by the famous symbols of the twin horsemen, double-headed eagle, double-barred cross of Lorraine, and divided Masonic compass. It’s clearly a case of “divide and rule,” or more appropriately of “faux divide and rule.”
In this case the commenters who emphasize the continuing antipathy between the Templars and Sionists are either hoodwinked and ignorant or deliberately duplicitous agents of the Templar cabal – the Architects of Control.
