Illuminati Masonic degrees
The young Illuminatus was entered, passed and raised to the degree of a Master Mason in the Blue.
Masonic Lodges served as ideal recruiting grounds…
Masonic lodges were also the end point for any member who was deemed incapable of further enlightenment. Brothers unsuited to further advancement in the Illuminati were tagged Sta Bene: and guided towards alchemy, deciphering hieroglyphics and other pointless pursuits of the Masonic playground.
Congress of Wilhelmsbad, 1782
Europe’s leading Freemasons gather at the Landgrave of Hesse’s new luxurious spa for a 2 1/2 month conclave. Knigge recruits the Landgrave himself, the Duke of Brunswick as well as other Masonic luminaries of the day.
The Illuminati’s membership soon grew to over 3000 members. Not everyone is enthusiastic…
“The conspiracy happening is so contrived, that it will be impossible for the Monarchy and the Church to escape it.” ~ Comte de Virieu, Wilhelmsbad Congress Attendee
