Bavarian Illuminati History
It is commonly believed that the Order of the Illuminati was founded by Jesuit-taught Adam Weishaupt on May 1, 1776, in Ingolstadt (Upper Bavaria) with an initial membership of five.
The secret society of the Illuminati takes its name from the Bavarian Illuminati. It was made up of freethinkers as an offshoot of the Enlightenment and many believe it to be modelled on the Freemasons.
The Illuminati's members took a vow of secrecy and pledged obedience to their superior ranking members.
Illuminati Members were divided into three main classes, each with various degrees of authority, with many Illuminati chapters recruiting members from existing Masonic lodges.
Illuminati Original Goals
Originally, the goals of the organization were opposing and trying to stop superstition, prejudice, religious influence over the masses, abuses of government power, and gender inequality. Many influential men were members, including intellectuals and progressive politicians.
The original insignia of the Bavarian Illuminati is the owl of Minerva, which symbolized wisdom on top of an opened book. This version of the owl in this photo comes from an early pamphlet, printed around 1776.
At its peak, the Bavarian Illuminati was known to have branches throughout most of Europe, with over 2,000 members. This organization was outlawed by the Bavarian government at the request of the Vatican, and it publicly disbanded in 1785.
Many who study the Illuminati of today believe that this original group of “Enlightened Elite” continued in secret. Today’s Illuminati Elite is known to include the highest ranking members of a number of fraternal organizations descended from the original Bavarian group.
Rebirth of The Illuminati
It is believed by many, that over time, the Illuminati has evolved into a secret cabal of some of the richest and most powerful men in the world, who pull the strings of politicians and global economic leaders from the shadows.
They believe the Illuminati conspires to control world affairs by infiltrating governments and multinational corporations for political power and economic influence, in preparation for a New World Order with the Elite controlling all.
Illuminati Control of Historical Events
Many historical events, including the American Revolution, Waterloo, the French Revolution, the assassination of President Kennedy, and the rise of Communism, are likely to have been orchestrated by the Illuminati in an effort to weaken world powers, gain control of governments, fill the coffers of Illuminati-controlled corporations, and hasten the arrival of the New World Order.
According to the Illuminati master plan, World War I was orchestrated to destroy Czarism in Russia and to establish Russia as a stronghold of Communism.
World War II pitted the Fascists against the “political Zionists,” to build up Communism to equal the strength of the United Christendom. And, in future anticipated Illuminati plans, World War III, between Western nations and Islamic or Muslim ruled nations, will be orchestrated to bring the global economy to its knees. The world’s nations will then submit to the formation of a One World Government and economic system, controlled by the Illuminati Elite.
Illuminati Secret History Goes Back Further
There is evidence that Bavarian founder Adam Weishaupt did not actually create this powerful secret society, but only revived it in his own country and era. The Elite are believed to have been involved in secret control of governments and economies at different periods in history, all the way back to Mesopotamia, well over 4,000 years ago.
Babylonian tyrant Hammurabi created the idea of an omniscient being to give his subjects the feeling that he was everywhere at once, to enforce his book of controlling laws and “folk wisdom” called the Hammurabi Code. The symbol of Hammurabi’s “god” was the All-Seeing Eye atop a pyramid.
Hammurabi instated a special sect of officials whose job was to control the masses, which later developed into the original order of Freemasons. Over the centuries, the elite families who gained wealth and power under Hammurabi’s rule have maintained that power through a combination of secret machinations of food supplies (later translating to currency), knowledge, and law (life and death).
Since that time, the Illuminati have been linked with the Knights Templar (a religious and military group who became extremely wealthy as a result of its assistance to European rulers during the Crusades), as well as the secret societies of the Masons and the Freemasons. Researchers have also unearthed links to the fabled “White Brotherhood,” believed to be the founders of ancient Greek institutions of politics, philosophy, government, military, and education that are important in Western societies today.
Illuminati In Today’s Popular Culture
Illuminati researchers have claimed that many notable people in our recent history were or are members of the Illuminati. Presidents of the United States are commonly associated as well as other powerful and influential people in positions of power in all industries that have the ability to influence the masses.
The Illuminati are often referred to in popular culture, in books and comics, television and movies, and video games. A number of novelists, playwrights, and composers are alleged to have been Illuminati members and to have made references and placed hidden or overt illuminati symbols this in their work.
The magazine Rolling Stone (December 10 1998, edition 801) states that in the modern hiphop culture the Illuminati is mentioned regularly. Some of the example given are: in Dr. Dre's Been There Done That, Jay-Z's album Reasonable Doubt and Tupac Shakur's The Don Killuminati
