This is part 2 of Consummate Ilias Mahatma’s discussion of the Illuminati….
The supposed founder of the Illuminati is Dr. Adam Weishaupt, which in keeping with the shrouds of purposeful confusion that always surrounds the subject, should be correctly referred to as the Bavarian Illuminati. Dr. Weishaupt was a professor of Canon Law at Ingolstadt University during the 1770’s. The University of Ingolstadt was founded in 1472, by Louis the Rich, duke of Bavaria. Exteriorizations or manifestations occur by the confluence of three factors: time, place, and circumstance. None are by accident – all is by design. As such, both the University, and Louis the Rich, are two of the many links in the chain, providing clues to that which remains unseen. Ingolstadt is said to have been planned as a replica of the University of Vienna, sharing the same self-claimed purpose: the dispursion of the Christian faith. Note that there may be a difference between Christianity and Catholicism. There is no doubt that Catholicism played a large role in what follows; Christianity we will leave to the reader’s discretion. Jesuits During the Counter-Reformation, and especially during the 1600’s, the Universtiy came to be dominated by the Jesuits. As you can see, the layers to be peeled back are legion – a veritable history of histories. The Jesuits, or Society of Jesus, was founded by Ignatius of Loyola, in 1534, however, Ignatius named the organization the Company of Jesus. The name Jesuits came later. Loyola was a soldier prior to his epiphany, which is thought to be why the Jesuits have been referred to as soldiers of Christ, and foot soldiers of the Pope. Perhaps – perhaps not. Of interest is that Pope Paul III confirmed the order through the bull Regimini militantis ecclesiae on September 27, 1540, which translates as: to the Government of the Church Militant. Loyola’s title was Father General of the Church Militant. Like the Knights of the Temple before them – they were a military order under the Pope’s direct rule. They were to “convert” non-believers, and convert they did. Loyola was obsessed with abnegation and obedience to the Pope – what Ignatius called: perinde ac cadaver, which translates as, well-disciplined like a corpse. Ingatius’s overiding belief was: Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam – “for the greater glory of God”, which he also expressed with his infamous statement: “I will believe that the white that I see is black if the hierarchical Church so defines it.”  Note the words hierarchical Church, as opposed to Christ. Perhaps this goes towards the difference between Catholicism and Christianity – perhaps not.
ALL IN THE FAMILY
The point is that in the short span of lineage covered above, one can see that ruling families or “royalty”, kept things in the family by the use of marriage – marriage between, and within, the same families. This keeping of things within the same families sounds very much like a society within a society, does it not? And it is a very elite society at that, one composed of a very few families. Cui Bono? Follow the money or wealth. Might there be a connection between secret societies and the elite? Perhaps there is a connection between the lust for power and the lust for wealth? Yet, as we will see, the Bavarian Illuminati were said to be for the overthrow of nation states, of royalty or otherwise – another layer to be peeled off. Bavarian Illuminati; Returning to the Bavarian Illuminati and Adam Weishaupt, we find that on May 1, 1776, Weishaupt organized the secret society, while still teaching at Ingolstadt. It is fascinating how the date coincides with the founding of America, begging the question: by design or accident? Even more fascinating is that the Great Seal of the United States has inscribed on it: Novus Ordo Seclorum – New World Order (literally – New Secular Order). It also contains the Latin phrase: Annuit Coeptis, which means “gives the nod (assents) to the undertakings.” Both phrases appear in the writings of Virgil.
