Secrets, Rituals and Symbols of the Bavarian Illuminati- Illuminati Novice – the first step in becoming a member of the Order of the Illuminati began with a one to three years trial period in which the candidate would be observed and evaluated for possible membership in the Bavarian Illuminati.
The ideal candidate was between 18-30 years old, wealthy, and came from a politically connected family of influence.The Order was invite-only.
Potential Candidates who were tapped into “The Nursery” had to sign a non-disclosure agreement. (Silentio) They then entered a 1 to 3 years trial period.
They only knew their Insinuator and were unaware of other Illuminati closely observing them.
Obedience – They had to learn to accept and carry out orders from “Unknown Superiors”.
The uninitiated Non-illuminati were to be referred to as the “Profane”.
They had to submit an auto-biography detailing all their relationships, weaknesses, attributes, their family’s net worth, etc (Pensum) and a monthly confessional. (Quibus Licet)
The Order assigned each member a nom de guerre or codename, usually taken from Greek or Roman classical literature.
Candidates had to learn special geographical codes…
Regions and Provinces:
Little Lydia (Hesse-Kassel)
They had to use a simple substitution cipher in all communications.
