ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FREEMASONRY AND ITS KINDRED SCIENCES
by ALBERT C. MACKEY M. D.
CLERMONT, COLLEGE OF
College of Jesuits in Paris, where James II, after his flight from England, in 1688, resided until his removal to St. Germain.
During his residence there, he is said to have sought the establishment of a system of Freemasonry, the object of which should be the restoration of the House of Stuart to the throne of England. Relics of this attempted system are still to be found in many of the advanced Degrees, and the Chapter of Clermont, subsequently organized in Paris, appears to have had some reference to it.
JESUITS
In the eighteenth century the Jesuits were charged with having an intimate connection with Freemasonry, and the invention of the Degree of Kadosh was even attributed to those members of the Society who constituted the College of Clermont. This theory of a Jesuitical Freemasonry seems to have originated with the Illuminati, who were probably governed in its promulgation by a desire to depreciate the character of all other Masonic systems in comparison with their own, where no such priestly interference was permitted. Barruel scoffs at the idea of such a connection, and cans it (Histoire de Jacobinisme iv, page 287) “la fable de la Franc-Maçonnerie Jésuitique” meaning an invention of false or Jesuitical Freemasonry. For once he is right. Like oil and water the tolerance of Freemasonry and the intolerance of the “Society of Jesus” cannot commingle. Yet it cannot be denied that, while the Jesuits have had no part in the construction of pure Freemasonry, there are reasons for believing that they took an interest in the invention of some Degrees and systems which were intended to advance their own interests. But wherever they touched the Institution they left the trail of the serpent.
They sought to convert its pure philanthropy and toleration into political intrigue and religious bigotry. Hence it is believed that they had something to do with the invention of those Degrees, which were intended to aid the exiled house of Stuart in its efforts to regain the English throne, because they believed that would secure the restoration in England of the Roman Catholic religion. Almost a library of books has been written on both sides of this subject in Germany and in France.

PERFECTION, RITE OF
In 1754, the Chevalier de Bonneville established a Chapter of the advanced Degrees at Paris, in the College of Jesuits of Clermont, hence called the Chapter of Clermont. The system of Freemasonry he there practiced received the name of the Rite of Perfection, or Rite of Heredom. The College of Clermont was, says Rebold (History of Three Grand Lodges, page 46) the asylum of the adherents of the House of Stuart, and hence the Rite is to some extent tinctured with Stuart Freemasonry It consisted of twenty-five Degrees as follows:
1. Apprentice
2. Fellow Craft
3. Master
4. Secret Master
5. Perfect Master
6. Intimate Secretary
7. Intendant of the Building
8. Provost and Judge
9. Elect of Nine
10. Elect of Fifteen
11. Illustrious Elect, Chief of the Twelve Tribes
12. Grand Master Architect
13- Royal Arch
14. Grand, Elect, Ancient, Perfect Master
15. Knight of the Sword
16. Prince of Jerusalem
17. Knight of the East and West
18. Rose Croix Knight
19. Grand Pontiff
20. Grand Patriarch
21. Grand Master of the Key of Freemasonry
22. Prince of Libanus
23. Sovereign Prince Adept Chief of the Grand Consistory
24. Illustrious Knight Commander of the Black and White Eagle
25. Most Illustrious Sovereign Prince of Freemasonry, Grand Knight, Sublime Commander of the Royal Secret.
It will be seen that the Degrees of this Rite are the same as those of the Council of Emperors of the East and West, which was established four years later, and to which the Chapter of Clermont gave way. Of course, they are the same, so far as they go, as those of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite which succeeded the Council of Emperors. The distinguishing principle of this Rite is, that Freemasonry was derived from Templarism, and that consequently every Freemason was a Knight Templar. It was there that the Baron von Hund was initiated, and from it, through him, proceeded the Rite of Strict Observance; although he discarded the Degrees and retained only the Templar theory.
RITUAL

There is also a curious comparison of Masonic forms and customs with those of the Jesuits in Les Jesuits Chassés de la MaMonnerie et leur Poignard brisé par les Masons, 1788, and in this connection one notes with attention the reference in Loyola and the Educational System of the Jesuits, Rev. Thomas Hughes, S. J. (chapter iv, page 232), the repeated reference to the Lion’s Paw, “The paw shows the lion,” “You can tell a lion by his paw,” “Ex ungue leonem,” etc., in a discourse are somewhat suggestive, but the other work is much more elaborate and detailed.
SCOTTISH RITE
Some authorities call this the Ancient and Accepted Rite, but as the Latin Constitutions of the Order designate it as the Antiquus Scoticus Ritus Acceptus, or the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, that title has now been very generally adopted as the correct name of the Rite.
Although one of the youngest of the Masonic Rites, having been established not earlier than the year 1801, it is at this day most popular and the most extensively diffused. Supreme Councils or governing Bodies of the Rite are to be found in almost every civilized country of the world, and in many of them it is the only Masonic Obedience. The history of its organization is briefly this: In 1758, a Body was organized at Paris called the Council of Emperors of the East and West. This Council organized a Rite called the Rite of Perfection, which consisted of twenty-five Degrees, the highest of which was Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret.
In 1761, this Council granted a Patent or Deputation to Stephen Morin, authorizing him to propagate the Rite in the Western Continent, whither he was about to repair. In the same year, Morin arrived at the City of Santo Domingo, where he commenced the dissemination of the Rite, and appointed many Inspectors, both for the West Indies and for the United States. Among others, he conferred the Degrees on Moses M. Hayes, with a power of appoint ing others when necessary. Hayes accordingly appointed Isaac Da Costa Deputy Inspector-General for South Carolina, who in 1783 introduced the Rite into that State by the establishment of a Grand Lodge of Perfection in Charleston. Other Inspectors were subsequently appointed, and in 1801 a Supreme Council lvas opened in Charleston by John Mitchell and Frederick Dalcho.
There is abundant evidence in the Archives of the Supreme Council that up to that time the twenty-five Degrees of the Rite of Perfection were alone recognized. But suddenly, with the organization of the Supreme Council, there arose a new Rite, fabricated by the adoption of eight more of the continental advanced Degrees, so as to make the Thirty-third and not the Twenty-fifth Degree the summit of the Rite.
The Rite consists of thirty-three Degrees, which are divided into six sections, each section being under an appropriate Jurisdiction, and are as follows:
I. SYMBOLIC LODGE
1. Entered Apprentice
2. Fellow Craft
3. Master Mason
These are sometimes called the Blue or Symbolic Degrees. They are not conferred by the Scottish Rite in England, Scotland, Ireland, or in the United States because the Supreme Councils refrain from exercising jurisdiction through respect to the older authority in those countries of the York and American Rite.
II. LODGE OF PERFECTION
4. Secret Master
5. Perfect Master
6. Intimate Seeretary
7. Provost and Judge
8. Intendant of the Building
9. Elu, or Elected Knight, of the Nine
10. Illustrious Elect, or Elu, of the Fifteen
11. Sublime Knight Elect, or Elu, of the Twelve
12. Grand Master Architect
13. Knight of the Ninth Areh, or Royal Arch of Solomon
14. Grand Elect, Perfeet and Sublime Mason or
III. CHAPTER OF ROSE CROIX
15. Knight of the East
16. Prince of Jerusalem
17. Knight of the East and West
18. Prince Rose Croix
IV. COUNCIL OF KADOSH
19. Grand Pontiff
20. Grand Master of Symbolic Lodges
21. Noachite, or Prussian Knight
22. Knight of the Royal Ax, or Prince of
23. Chief of the Tabernacle
24. Prince of the Tabernacle
25. Knight of the Brazen Serpent
26. Prince of Mercy
27. Knight Commander of the Temple
28. Knight of the Sun, or Prince Adept
29. Grand Scottish Knight of Saint Andrew
30. Knight Kadosh
V. CONSISTORY OF SUBLIME PRINCES OR MASTERS, OF THE ROYAL SECRET
31. Inspector Inquisitor Commander
32. Sublime Princo of the Roya1 Secrets VI
SUPREME COUNCIL
33. Sovereign Grand Inspector-General
The classification of the above Degrees is as they are arranged in the Southern Jurisdiction. In the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction the Consistory grades begin at Grand Pontiff, the nineteenth, and include the thirty-second, Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret, and the Council of Princes of Jerusalem governs the fifteenth and sixteenth grades Several of the titles of the Degrees vary in their use by the Supreme Councils but the above table covers most of these variations. The Southern Jurisdiction for example omits the word Grand from the names of the twelfth, fourteenth, nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-ninth grades, and also uses Elu instead of the other designations, omits Commander from the thirty-first, and specifies Master in the thirty-second.
A full account of the Rite is in Doctor Mackey’s revised History of Freemasonry but numerous details under individual headings are in the present work (see Educational Foundalions).
STUART MASONRY
This title is given by Masonic historians to that system of Freemasonry Which is supposed to have been invented by the adherents of the exiled House of Stuart for the purpose of being used as a political means of restoring, first, James II, and afterward his son and grandson, James and Charles Edward, respectively known in history as the Chevalier Saint George and the Young Pretender. Most of the conclusions to which Masonic writers have arrived on the subject of this connection of the Stuarts with the advanced Degrees of Freemasonry are based on conjecture; but in the opinion of Doctor Mackey there is sufficient internal evidence in the character of some of these Degrees, as well as in the known history of their organization, to establish the fact that such a connection did actually exist.
The first efforts to create a Masonic influence in behalf of his family is attributed to James II, who had abdicated the throne of England in 1688. Of him, Noorthouck says (Constitutions, 1784, page 192), that he was not “a Brother Mason,” and sneeringly adds, in his index, that “he might have been a better King had he been a Mason.” But Lenning says that after his flight to France, and during his residence at the Jesuit College of Clermont, where he remained for some time, his adherents, among whom were the Jesuits, fabricated certain Degrees with the ulterior design of carrying out their political views. At a later period these Degrees were, he says, incorporated into French Freemasonry under the name of the Clermont System, in reference to their original construction at that place. Gädicke had also said that many Scotchmen followed him, and thus introduced Freemasonry into France. But this opinion is only worthy of citation because it proves that such an opinion was current among the German scholars of the eighteenth century.
On his death, which took place at the Palace of St. Germain en Laye in 1701, he was succeeded in his claims to the British throne by his son, who was recognized by Louis XIV, of France, under the title of James III, but who is better known as the Chevalier Saint George, or the Old Pretender. The word Pretender here should be given the understanding of claimant. He also sought, says Lenning, to find in the high Degrees of Freemasonry a support for his political views, but, as he remarks, with no better results than those which had attended the attempts of his father.
His son, Prince Charles Edward, who was commonly called by the English the Young Pretender, took a more active part than either his father or grandfather in the pursuits of Freemasonry; and there is abundant historical evidence that he was not only a Freemason, but that he held high office in the Order, and was for a time zealously engaged in its propagation; always, however, it is supposed, with political views.
In 1745 he invaded Scotland, with a view to regain the lost throne of his ancestors, and met for some time with more than partial success. On September 24, 1745, he was admitted into the Order of Knights’ Templar, and was elected Grand Master, an office which it is said that he held until his death. On his return to France after his ill-fated expedition, the Prince is said to have established at the City of Arras, on April 151 1747, a Rose Croix Chapter under the title of Scottish Jacobite Chapter. In the Patent for this Chapter he styles himself “King of England, France, Scotland, and Ireland, and, as such, Substitute Grand Master of the Chapter of Herodem, known under the title of Knight of the Eagle and Peliean, and since our misfortunes and disasters under that of Rose Croix.”
In 1748, the Rite of the Veille-Bru, or Faithful Scottish Masons, was created at Toulouse in grateful remembrance of the reception given by the Freemasons of that Orient to Sir Samuel Lockhart, the Aide-de-camp of the Pretender. Ragan says (Orthodoxie Maçonnique, page 122), in a note to this statement, the “favorites who accompanied this prince into France were in the habit of selling to speculators Charters for Mother Lodges, Patents for Chapters, etc. These titles were their property, and they did not fail to make use of them as a means of livelihood.” Ragon says (Thuileur General, page 367), that the degrees of Irish Master, Perfect Irish Master, and Puissant Irish Master were invented in France, in 1747, by the favorites of Charles Edward Stuart and sold to the partisans of that Prince. One Degree was openly called the Scottish Master of the Sacree Vault of James VI, as if to indicate its Stuart character. The Degree still exists as the Thirteenth of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, but it has been shorn of its political pretensions and its title changed.
Findell has given in his History of Freemasonry (English translation, page 209), a very calm and impartial account of the rise of this Stuart Freemasonry. He says: “Ever since the banishment of the Stuarts from England in 1688, secret alliances had been kept up between Rome and Scotland; for to the former place the Pretender James Stuart had retired in l719, and his son Charles Edward was born there in 1720; and these communications became the more intimate, the higher the hopes of the Pretender rose. The Jesuits played a very important part in these conferences. Regarding the reinstatement of the Stuarts and the extension of the power of the Roman church as identical, they sought, at that time, to make the society of Freemasons subservient to their ends. But to make use of the Fraternity to restore the exiled family to the throne could not possibly have been contemplated, as Freemasonry could hardly be said to exist in Scotland then.
Perhaps in 1724, when Ramsay was a year in Rome, or in 1728, when the Pretender in Parma kept up an intercourse with the restless Duke of Wharton, a Past Grand Master, this idea was first entertained; and then, when it was apparent how difficult it would be to corrupt the loyalty and fealty of Freemasonry in the Grand Lodge of Scotland, founded in 1736, this Scheme was set on foot, of assembling the faithful adherents of the banished royal family in the high Degrees! The soil which was best adapted for this innovation was France, where the low ebb to which Freemasonry had sunk had paved the way for all kinds of newfangled notions, and where the Lodges were composed of Scotch conspirators and accomplices of the Jesuits. When the path had thus been smoothed by the agency of these secret propagandists, Ramsay, at that time Grand Orator, an office unknown in England, by his speech completed the preliminaries necessary for the introduction of the high Degrees; their further development was left to the instrumentality of others, whose influence produced a result somewhat different from that originally intended. Their course we can now pursue, assisted by authentic historical information.
In 1752, Scottish Masonry, as it was denominated, penetrated into Germany, Berlin, prepared from a ritual very similar to one used in Lille in 1749 and 1750. In 1743, Thory tells us, the Masons in Lyons, under the name of the Petit Elu, or the Lesser Elect, invented the Degree of Kadosh, which represents the revenge of the Templars. The Order of Knights Templar had been abolished in 1311, and to that epoch they were obliged to have recourse when, after the banishment of several Knights from Malta in 1720 because they were Freemasons, it was not longer possible to keep up a connection with the Order of Saint John or Knights of Malta. then in the plenitude of their power under the sovereignty of the Pope. A pamphlet entitled Freemasonry Divested of all its Secrets published in Strasburg in 1745, contains the first glimpse of the Strict Observance, and demonstrates how much they expected the Brotherhood to contribute towards the expedition in favor of the Pretender. “
From what has been said, it is evident there was a strong belief that the exiled House of Stuart exercised an important part in the invention and extension of what has been called the High Masonry. The traces of the political system are seen at the present day in the internal organization of some of the advanced Degrees especially in the derivation and meaning of certain significant words. There is, indeed, abundant reason for believing that the substitute word of the Third Degree was changed by Ramsay, or some other fabricator of Degrees, to give it a reference to James II as “the son of the widow,” Queen Henrietta Maria. Further researches are needed to enable any author to Satisfactorily write all the details of this interesting episode in the history of Continental freemasonry . Documents are still wanting to elucidate certain intricate and, at present, apparently contradictory points.
In the Jacobite Lodge at Rome, by Brother William James Hughan, the author states (page 25): “Many statements have appeared from time to time respecting Prince Charles Edward Stuart’s connection with Freemasonry, documents being submitted to prove that he even held the highest possible rank in the craft; but so far as I have been able to discover, all such claims are of an apocryphal character. Some are most absurd, while others are directly opposed to the actual facts of the case.”
This may be supplemented by what Brother George W. Speth states on page 27 of the same work where he advises students, “to put no trust whatever in amounts connecting the Stuarts with Freemasonry. We have, too, in the Young Pretender’s own written and verbal statements that they are absolutely baseless, pure inventions.” However, as Brother Robert Freke Gould tells us, some “have affirmed, and with perhaps the greater share of reason, that the Prince was compelled by altered circumstances of his cause to repudiate any relations with Freemasonry,” and, of course, that gives another view of the matter, though it is curious that all through these years the tradition should have held its own with such remarkable tenacity.
The Rite of Perfection
In 1754, the Chevalier de Bonneville established a Chapter of the Advanced Degrees at Paris, in the College of Jesuits of Clermont, hence called the Chapter of Clermont. The system of Freemasonry he practiced received the name of the Rite of Perfection or Rite of Heredom. The College of Clermont was the asylum of the adherents of the House of Stuart, and hence the Rite is to some extent tinctured with Stuart Freemasonry.
It consisted of twenty-five Degrees as follows: 1. Apprentice; 2. Fellow Craft; 3. Master; 4. Secret Master; 5. Perfect Master; 6. Intimate Secretary; 7. Intendant of the Building; 8. Provost and Judge; 9. Elect of Nine; 10. Elect of Fifteen; 11. Illustrious Elect, Chief of the Twelve Tribes; 12. Grand Master Architect; 13. Royal Arch: 14. Grand, Elect, Ancient, Perfect Master; 15. Knight of the Sword; 16. Prince of Jerusalem; 17. Knight of the East and West; 18. Rose Croix Knight; 19. Grand Pontiff; 20. Grand Patriarch; 21. Grand Master of the Key of Freemasonry; 22. Prince of Libanus; 23. Sovereign Prince Adept Chief of the Grand Consistory; 24. Illustrious Knight Commander of the Black and White Eagle; 25. Most Illustrious Sovereign Prince of Freemasonry, Grand Knight, Sublime Commander of the Royal Secret.
It will be seen that the Degrees of this Rite are the same as those of the Council of Emperors of the East and West, which was established four years later, and to which the Chapter of Clermont gave way. Of course, they are the same, so far as they go, as the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite which succeeded the Council of Emperors.
The distinguishing principle of this Rite is that Freemasonry was derived from Templarism and that, consequently, every Freemason was a Knight Templar. It was there that the Baron von Hund was initiated, and from it, and through him, proceeded the Rite of Strict Observance; although he discarded the Degrees and retained only the Templar theory.

Freemasonry and the Roman Catholic Church ­ – collection of quotes‏:
* F. Tupper Saussy – “Rulers Of Evil” (pages 40-41, 58-59, 120-121):
“A subtle provision in Vox clamantis transferred most Templar estates to the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, who took possession after King Philip’s death. In Germany and Austria, the Templars became ‘Rosicrucians’ and ‘Teutonic Knights.’ The Teutonic Knights grew strong in Mainz, birthplace of Gutenberg’s press. Six centuries later, as the ‘Teutonic Order,’ the Knights would provide the nucleus of Adolf Hitler’s political support in Munich and Vienna.
The Edinburgh lodge would become the headquarters of Scottish Rite Freemasonry, which Masonic historians call ‘American Freemasonry’ because all but five of the signers of the Declaration of Independence are said to have practiced its craft. In Spain andPortugal the Templars became the ‘Illuminati’ in whom Iñigo had taken membership at Manresa, and ‘Knights of Christ.’ It was under the red pattée cross of the Knights of Christ that Columbus had taken possession of what he called ‘las Indias’ for King Ferdinand V of Spain, grandfather of Iñigo’s discreet patron, Charles I and V, the Holy Roman Emperor.
As early as August of 1523, as I hypothesized in the previous chapter, this vast yet fragmented subterranean empire – Roman Catholicism’s unseen root-system binding together the world – belonged to Iñigo de Loyola. His spiritual dynasty, which continues to this day, would use this system to cause God-fearing men who hated the papacy to perform, without realizing it, exactly how the papacy wanted them to.”
[...]
“The Inquisition’s effect, of course, was to send the more resourceful of the ‘heretics, Protestants and Liberals’ who escaped torture or execution scurrying underground, or into the burgeoning world of commerce, or into regions where Protestant civil authorities kept Inquisitors at bay. Yearning for a less intrusive religious experience, they joined attractive philosophical fraternities where they could speak freely against Roman Catholicism. For this ostensible reason, these fraternities or cults or lodges operated in secrecy. In fact, they were the remnants of the Templar network – Rosicrucians, Teutonic Knights, the numerous and various rites of Freemasonry. Like the Templars and the Jesuits, they were religious hierarchies of strict obedience. They differed from the Jesuits, however, in that their pyramid culminated in an ultimate authority no brother could identify with certainty. The highest master of a Lodge received commandments from an ‘Unknown Superior,’ a Superior whose will the master’s whole struggle up the degrees had trained him to obey without question. What the masters never realized was that this mysterious personage, as we shall examine in more detail later, was in fact none other than the Black Pope.”
[...]
“Freemasonry was the natural, the reasonable, the only intelligent way for the Roman Catholic Church to control A: the ongoing affront of Protestantism; B: the increase in ‘divine right’ kings heading their own national churches independent of Vatican control; and C: the incredible explosion of international mercantilism. [...] The Jesuit General is the disembodied eye substituting for the pyramid’s missing capstone, the stone the builders rejected. [...] Both Freemasonry and the Society of Jesus are A: humanist religious orders; B: secretive; C: fraternal; D: socially conscientious and politically active – questing, like Aeneas, the prototypical Roman, for the greatest good for the greatest number; Both orders E: hold Tradition, Reason, and Experience in equal if not greater esteem than the Bible; F: employ carefully structured programs of gnostic visualization to achieve an ever-increasing knowledge of the divine; G: condone ‘the end justifies the means’; and H: require absolute obedience, secured by blood oath, to a hierarchy of superiors culminating in the Jesuit General, whose orders are so wisely suited to the recipient that they are obeyed as though willed by the recipient himself.”
* Anthony W. Ivins – “The Relationship of ‘Mormonism’ and Freemasonry”, 1934:
“Mathew Ramsey, a Scotch gentleman, and writer on the subject, believed that Freemasonry had its origin with the Knights Templar.
Between the date of its inception at Jerusalem, in 1118 and 1314, the Order of Knights Templars had become a powerful and wealthy organization. They recognized allegiance to no power above that Church, of which the Pope was the recognized head.”
* Letter of the Freemason/Theosophist Charles Sotheran to the New York Press Club, 11th of January 1877:
“It is curious to note too that most of the bodies which work these, such as the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, the Rite of Avignon, the Order of the Temple, Fessler’s Rite, the ‘Grand Council of the Emperors of the East and West — Sovereign Prince Masons,’ etc., etc., are nearly all the offspring of the sons of Ignatius Loyola. The Baron Hundt, Chevalier Ramsay, Tschoudy, Zinnendorf, and numerous others who founded the grades in these rites, worked under instructions from the General of the Jesuits. The nest where these high degrees were hatched, and no Masonic rite is free from their baleful influence more or less, was the Jesuit College of Clermont at Paris.”
* Eric Jon Phelps – Spectrum magazine interview:
http://www.whale.to/b/pope.html
http://www.govsux.com/black_pope.htm
“It’s just like Freemasonry. The lower have no idea that the High Shriner Freemasons are working for the Jesuit General. They think that they’re just doing works and being good people. But the bottom line is that the high-level Freemasons are subject, also, to the Jesuit General because the Jesuit General, with Fredrick the Great, wrote the High Degrees, the last 8 Degrees, of the Scottish Rite Freemasonry when Fredrick protected them when they were suppressed by the Pope in 1773.
So, you have the alignment with the Jesuit Order and the most powerful Freemason they had in the craft, Fredrick the Great, during their suppression. That is an irrefutable conclusion. And then, when you see the Napoleonic Wars, the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars carried out by Freemasonry, everything Napoleon did, and the Jacobins, whatever they did, completely benefited the Jesuit Order.”
* William Peterson – “Ask Me Another, Brother”:
“The Jesuits wrote the first 25 rites of Scottish Freemasonry in then College de Clermont in Paris in 1754”
“Chevalier de Bonneville formed a chapter of twenty-five Degrees of the so-called High-Degrees in the College of Jesuits of Clermont, in Paris in 1754. The adherents of the House of Stuart had made the college of Clermont their asylum, they being mostly Scotchmen. One of these Degrees being the ‘Scottish Master,’ the new body organized in Charleston, S.C., in 1801, gave the name of Scottish Rite to these Degrees, which name ever since that time has characterized the Rite all over the world.”
* James Parton (American Historian) – “The Life of Horace Greeley”, 1855:
“There are still old ladies, male and female, about the country, who will tell you, with grim gravity that, if you trace up Masonry, through all its Orders, till you come to the grand tip-top, head Mason of the World, you will discover that the dread individual and the Chief of the Society of Jesus are one and the same person!”
* Heckethorn (English Historian) – “Secret Societies of all Ages and Countries”, 1900:
“There is considerable analogy between Masonic and Jesuitic degrees; and the Jesuits also tread down the shoe and bare the knee, because Ignatius Loyola thus presented himself at Rome and asked for the confirmation of the order.”
* John Daniel – “The Grand Design Exposed” (pages 170, 212-213, 302):
“This inner and invisible Freemasonry is international in extent, and it is within the Inner Circle that the Jesuits conceal themselves, work, and mastermind the projects that suit their goals.”
“Without exception, every chief actor in the French Revolution [1789-1799] was either Jesuit-educated, a Catholic prelate, or a member of the Illuminati Order where within the Jacobin Club they would come together to conspire and carry out the ‘Great Work’ – which in the open system of the Jacobins was the reflection of the complete hidden system of the Illuminati – and in back of the Illuminati were the hidden Jesuit ‘masters’.”
“The truth is that the Jesuits of Rome have perfected Freemasonry to be their most magnificent and effective tool, accomplishing their purposes among Protestants”.
* I. A. Sadler – “Mystery, Babylon the Great”, 2003 (pages 175-181):
“Freemasonry is another branch of the Babylonian Mysteries, which has survived under different names from the time of the fall of open pagan worship in the 5th century. … Freemasonry is just as ripe for manipulation by the Jesuits and the Church of Rome, that it may be used for the purposes of Rome, as any Protestant denomination. … In Britain and the USA, Freemasonry appears as a ‘Christian’ organization. However, this is a most dangerous pretense, for the true god of Freemasonry is Lucifer, who is Satan appearing as an angel of light. …Both Freemasonry and the Church of Rome [at their highest levels] worship the same god… Masonic ceremonies implicitly deny the sufficiency of Scripture. …[Freemasonry] is particularly strong in many Baptist churches in the USA… Those in the lower levels of Freemasonry know nothing about the higher and even more secretive degrees.”
* Alberto Rivera (Spanish ex-Jesuit) – “The Godfathers”, 1979:
“The higher I went in the Jesuit Order, the more corruption I saw within the institution. I was invited to attend a secret black mass by high-ranking Jesuits [including Superior General Pedro Arrupe] in a monastery in the northern part of Spain. When I knelt to kiss the ring of a high official, I saw a symbol on that ring that made my blood run cold. It was a Masonic symbol [the compass and the square]! A thing I hated and I had been told to fight against it… I found out the Jesuit General was also a Mason and a member of the Communist Party in Spain.”

And two sources in German [need to be translated]:
* Dieter Rüggeberg – “Geheimpolitik – Der Fahrplan zur Weltherrschaft”:
“Auch jene Erkenntnis, von der ich schon geschrieben habe, daß in den obersten Etagen der höchsten Logen und Orden die Unterschiede von Konfessionen und politischen Ansichten verschwinden, wird von ihm bestätigt: ‚Mögen sich auf den unteren Ebenen Freimaurerei und Jesuitismus und damit der Katholizismus noch so sehr bekämpfen, in ihren obersten Spitzen stimmen beide überein, mag das noch so abwegig erscheinen…. Nunmehr trat Kardinal Wojtyla als Papst Johannes Paul II. sein Amt in Rom an. Er erhielt von der gesamten freimaurerischen Weltpresse überschwengliche begeisterte Zustimmung und hob mit Wirkung des 27.11.1983 (Beginn des Kirchenjahres und 1. Advent) die im Codex luris Canonici weltweit ausgesprochene Exkommunikation der Freimaurer auf.’ [Heinz Pfeifer: "Brüder des Schattens”, S. 234,236]”
* Rudolf Steiner – “Die Tempelgrade und die goldene Legende”:
“Daher haben Sie sowohl im Jesuitismus wie im Freimaurertum eine Fortsetzung derselben Zeremonien bei den Einweihungen wie in den alten Strömungen. Die Einweihung der Kirche im Jesuitismus hat die vier Grade: coadjutores temporales, scholares, coadjutores spirituales, professi. Die Grade der Einweihung in der eigentlichen okkulten Freimaurerei sind ähnlich. Sie laufen einander parallel.”

” Also that realization, from which I already wrote that in the highest floors of the highest Logen and medals the differences of denominations and political opinions disappear, from it confirmed: ‚Liking on the lower levels free bricklaying and Jesuitismus and thus the catholicism still so much to fight, in their highest points agree themselves both, may appear still so wrong…. Now cardinal Wojtyla began his office in Rome as a Pope Johannes Paul II. It received from the entire freimaurerischen world press effusive enthusiastic agreement and main header with effect 27.11.1983 (beginning of the church yearly and 1st Advent) the Exkommunikation of the freemasons expressed world-wide in the Codex luris Canonici up. ‘[Heinz Pfeifer: " Brothers of the shade”, P. 234.236]”
* Rudolf Steiner – ” The temple degrees and the golden legend”:
” Therefore you have both in the Jesuitismus and in the Freimaurertum a continuation of the same ceremonies with the inaugurations as in the old currents. The inauguration of the church in the Jesuitismus has the four degrees: coadjutores temp-oral, scholares, coadjutores spirituales, professi. The degrees of the inauguration in the actual okkulten free bricklaying are similar. They run each other parallel.”

About this entry


  1. It’s been proven that the Jesuit Clermont novitiate had nothing to do with the Clermont Chapter of Freemasonry – they are two separate things, in both space and time and content. The masons even got it wrong (Mackey among them), and the mistake has bee repeated ad infinitum ever since.
    You are perpetuating the same bad scholarship of a hundred years ago – Daniels and Phelps does the same.
    Not that I take a Mason’s word as gospel, but here is a time when they are right: “The natural confusion between the names of the Jesuit College of Clermont, and the short-lived Chapter of Clermont which was a Masonic body that controlled a few high degrees during its brief existence, only served to add fuel to the myth of Stuart Jacobite influence in Freemasonry’s high degrees. However, the College and the Chapter had nothing to do with each other. The Chapter was named “Clermont” in honor of the French Grand Master, the Duc de Clermont, and not because of any connection with the Jesuit College of Clermont.”

  2. So “The masons even got it wrong (Mackey among them)”, but a non-insider knows better? I am in contact with two anti-Jesuit Italian Masons/Knights who have stated quite firmly that the Jesuits were intimately involved with the creation of advanced degree Freemasonry & have key assets within the Scottish Rite & UGLE.
    Do you think that the following is also made up?

    MASONIC CATHOLIC PRIEST AT PIAZZA DEL GESU GRAND LODGE OF ITALY IN ROME
    No surprise either, as both the Scottish Rite Supreme Council 33° of the Gran Loggia d’Italia (GLDI, founded in 1910 after a schism with the Grande Oriente d’Italia) & the Church of the Gesù – the mother church of the Jesuits – are located in Piazza del Gesù! In fact the GLDI is known as the Piazza del Gesù obedience. This body is recognised by the Scottish Rite’s US Southern Jurisdiction (”Mother of the World”) Supreme Council 33° in Washington, DC. The Jesuits control both the Roman Catholic Church & many elements within high-level Freemasonry on both sides of the Atlantic.
    The Grande Oriente Italiano obedience (founded 1975, not to be confused with the Grande Oriente d’Italia) is also to be found at Piazza del Gesù, as is the Scottish Rite Supreme Council 33° of the Gran Loggia Nazionale Italiana (founded 1979).

    Italian priest joins Masons
    Rome, Feb. 19, 2007 (CWNews.com) – An Italian Paulist priest has become a member of the Masons, joining the group in a ceremony attended by about 40 people at the Masonic headquarters at Piazza del Gesu in Rome.
    Father Rosario Francesco Esposito dismissed the Church ban on membership in the Masonic lodge, saying that it is “a thing of the past.”
    The move by the 85-year-old Father Esposito is particularly interesting because he, along with Father Giovanni Caprile, SJ [Note: SJ = Society of Jesus = Jesuits - TS], was once commissioned by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to study the Church’s teaching on masonry. In 1983 the prefect of the Congregation, then-Cardinal [Note: & SMOM Knight of Malta - TS] Joseph Ratzinger [Note: now Pope Benedict XVI - TS], made a public announcement that the teaching of the Church had not changed, and the ban on Masonic membership remained in place.

  3. The Clermont College and the Clermont Chapter – that is what I questioned, and I am right.
    “non-insider knows better? ”
    Uh, no. Historians, who study these things to get the facts right. Knowledge – especially wrong knowledge – is constantly being reassessed. You are about 100 years out of touch, and relying upon people who are perpetuating an error of 200 years ago.
    For the origin of the Clermont Chapter, and proof that it had nothing whatever to do with Jesuit Clermont College, see René Le Forestier, Les Illuminés de Bavière et la Franc-Maçonnerie Allemande [Paris: 1914], Archè reprint, 2001, pp.144-6; and Henry W. Coil, Coil’s Masonic Encyclopedia (1961), p. 135. In particular, Le Forestier pinpoints the exact person, date, place, and context of the so-called Clermont Chapter, through archival studies. The conflation with the Jesuits came because of Jesuit-paranoiacs. The 18th Century, in fact, put to shame the likes of Oxley and Phelps and “Unhived Mind.” They were raving madmen compared to you guys.

  4. Okay, let’s go over some fine points then:
    http://www.phoenixmasonry.org/mackeys_encyclopedia/p.htm
    “PERFECTION, RITE OF
    In 1754, the Chevalier de Bonneville established a Chapter of the advanced Degrees at Paris, in the College of Jesuits of Clermont … The system of Freemasonry he there practiced received the name of the Rite of Perfection, or Rite of Heredom. The College of Clermont was, says Rebold (History of Three Grand Lodges, page 46) the asylum of the adherents of the House of Stuart, and hence the Rite is to some extent tinctured with Stuart Freemasonry … It will be seen that the Degrees of this Rite [the Rite of Perfection] are the same as those of the Council of Emperors of the East and West, which was established four years later … Of course, they are the same, so far as they go, as those of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite which succeeded the Council of Emperors. ”
    Note that I have removed: “… hence called the Chapter of Clermont …” from the end of the first sentence under this entry & “… and to which the Chapter of Clermont gave way …” from the end of the fourth sentence. For the purposes of establishing the Jesuits’ hand in the creation of advanced-degree Masonry, it matters not what the Chapter of Clermont was named after, nor which body had this name.
    We then compare the details of the above entry with this excerpt from the “SCOTTISH RITE” entry:
    http://www.phoenixmasonry.org/mackeys_encyclopedia/s.htm
    “In 1758, a Body was organized at Paris called the Council of Emperors of the East and West. This Council organized a Rite called the Rite of Perfection, which consisted of twenty-five Degrees, the highest of which was Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret.”
    Which adds detail to the previous quote.
    Now we look at the “history” posted at the Scottish Rite of the District of Columbia (which I have noted is alligned to the Jesuits via the Supreme Council 33° of the GLDI/Piazza del Gesu Masonic obedience in Rome, see: http://troyspace2.wordpress.com/2009/01/05/masonic-catholic-priest-at-piazza-del-gesu-grand-lodge-of-italy-in-rome/ ):
    http://dcsr.org/history.php
    “A German bookseller and Freemason, living in Paris, working under the assumed name of C. Lenning, embellished the story further in a manuscript titled “Encyclopedia of Freemasonry” probably written between 1822 and 1828 at Leipzig. This manuscript was later revised and published by another German Freemason named Friedrich Mossdorf (1757-1830). Lenning stated that King James II of England, after his flight to France in 1688, resided at the Jesuit College of Clermont, where his followers fabricated certain degrees for the purpose of carrying out their political ends. … The natural confusion between the names of the Jesuit College of Clermont, and the short-lived Chapter of Clermont which was a Masonic body that controlled a few high degrees during its brief existence, only served to add fuel to the myth of Stuart Jacobite influence in Freemasonry’s high degrees. However, the College and the Chapter had nothing to do with each other. The Chapter was named “Clermont” in honor of the French Grand Master, the Duc de Clermont, and not because of any connection with the Jesuit College of Clermont.”
    This is followed shortly after by:
    “Early writers long believed that a “Rite of Perfection” consisting of 25 degrees, the highest being the “Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret,” and being the predecessor of the Scottish Rite, had been formed in Paris by a high degree council calling itself “The Council of Emperors of the East and West.” The title “Rite of Perfection” first appeared in the Preface to the “Grand Constitutions of 1786,” the authority for which is now known to be faulty. It is now generally accepted that this Rite of twenty-five degrees was compiled by Estienne Morin and is therefore more properly titled “The Rite of the Royal Secret,” or “Morin’s Rite.”"
    Generally accepted, eh? Okay then let us become aware of the truth behind this latter “fact”:

    ÉTUDES MAÇONNIQUES – MASONIC PAPERS
    by W.Bro. ALAIN BERNHEIM 33°
    MASONIC AUTHORS
    The bad, the good and the ugly [i]
    The paper has been delivered at the Second Regular Meeting of Quatuor Coronati Lodge 112 Regular Grand Lodge of Italy. Rome, October 4, 2003
    [EXCERPT]
    Brigadier A.C.F. Jackson
    In 1978, I learned through AQC that Freddie Seal-Coon, then a member of the C.C., had just published An Historical Account of Jamaican Freemasonry. Since Estienne Morin had met Francken there and died in Kingston in 1771, I contacted Seal-Coon who suggested I write to Brigadier A.C.F. Jackson (Cosby to his friends), a PM of QC Lodge, who lived in Jersey.
    Jackson had transcribed the earliest-known copy of the ‘Great Statutes and Regulations’ (also known as the ‘Bordeaux Constitutions of 1762’) embedded in the Francken MS of 1771, which had just been rediscovered in the Library of the Supreme Council for England and Wales [iv] and included it in his book, Rose-Croix, which came out in 1980. From the start, we wrote to each other extensively. Although we knew each other very little, he was kind enough to add a few friendly words about me at the end of the Introduction to his book.
    A few years later, I had side by side on my desk the text of the 1771 Statutes that Jackson had printed in his book and that of the 1763 Statutes of the Grand Lodge of France which Groussier had transcribed in July 1929. I realized suddenly that both texts were nearly identical except for such changes made necessary if the Statutes referred to a Grand Lodge or to a High Degree body. I drew the conclusion that the French 1763 Statutes (which we knew Chaillon de Jonville, General Substitute of the Grand Lodge of France, had sent to Morin in San Domingo) had been re-written by Morin and used as a basis for the system of High Degrees he developed in the West Indies before his death. I explained the above in a paper published in vol. 59 (1984) of Renaissance Traditionnelle and Jackson wrote one in AQC vol. 97, issued the same year.
    When the first edition of Rose-Croix was nearly sold out, Lewis Publishers agreed to print a completely revised edition which would include our new discoveries. I went to Jersey in October 1985 to discuss a few points with Cosby and met him then for the first time. Many years a Military Attaché to the British Embassy in Paris, he was a gentleman in every sense of the word. Although aged 82, he was fit as a fiddle and extremely kind. During my stay in Jersey, he suggested I enter the Norman B. Spencer competition organized each year since 1971 by QC Lodge (he had been the first recipient). I did not tell him the subject I intended to choose, in case he would sit on the board of assessors (according to the rules of the competition, contributions are sent anonymously accompanied with the name of the author in a separate cover).
    Cosby had introduced me in writing to George Draffen, the then Lieutenant Grand Commander of the Supreme Council for Scotland. Draffen was an excellent historian with a great sense of humour, our correspondence was witty, and at his suggestion I sent him a draft of my paper. While at the hospital, he amended my style, changed the title from ‘Masonic Dating Codes’ into ‘The Dating of Masonic Records’ and on Good Friday 1986 sent it back to me expressing his hope that it would win the Prize. Unfortunately Draffen died six weeks later and never knew that his hope was fulfilled.
    Next October, I went to London. Cosby took me to the Library of the Supreme Council of England and Wales and let me see the manuscript of the 1771 Constitutions. He invited me afterwards for lunch at Great Queen Street, introduced me to some senior members of the Lodge and brought me to the meeting of QC Lodge where the £50 cheque for the Prize was handed over to me. Two years later, I was invited to deliver a paper in the Lodge. According to the rules, I couldn’t read it myself and Cosby read it at the May 1988 meeting (‘Notes on early Freemasonry in Bordeaux (1732-1769)’, AQC 101: 33-131).
    Shortly before, my name was put forward by Neville Cryer, the Secretary of the Lodge, and seconded by Cosby and Seal-Coon (by then a PM of the Lodge) to become a full member. For reasons which Cosby put down in writing in the 14th Chapter of his unpublished Memoirs of which I own a copy, it was turned down by a ‘gang’ of members – Cosby quotes their names and adds: « I use the word [gang] deliberately » – who made what he describes as « a deliberate character assassination ». As a consequence, Cosby sent his resignation from QC Lodge.
    In 1989, a senior member of the Lodge, Cyril Batham, wrote to me : « Have you considered submitting [again] an entry for the Norman B. Spencer Prize ? ». I thought it could wait a little. I wrote a few comments on papers read in the Lodge and a paper about the Mémoire de La Chaussée which was printed in vol. 104 (1992). Having by then completed a paper about Masonic Catechisms and Exposures which had a few original lines, I decided to follow Cyril’s suggestion and re-entered the competition. But warned by my previous experience, I submitted my paper under an anagrammatic pseudonym, Henri Amblaine. The paper won the Prize for 1993. When I let the Secretary of the Lodge know that Henri Amblaine and Alain Bernheim were one and the same person, he did not sound pleased at all.
    Cosby died, 3 January 2000. I wrote a tribute to his memory which appeared in vol. 112 of AQC and in vol. 10 of Acta Masonica (Brussels).
    —————————————————————————————————————-
    Okay, so what’s the key passage there?
    “I had side by side on my desk the text of the 1771 Statutes that Jackson had printed in his book and that of the 1763 Statutes of the Grand Lodge of France which Groussier had transcribed in July 1929. I realized suddenly that both texts were nearly identical except for such changes made necessary if the Statutes referred to a Grand Lodge or to a High Degree body. I drew the conclusion that the French 1763 Statutes (which we knew Chaillon de Jonville, General Substitute of the Grand Lodge of France, had sent to Morin in San Domingo) had been re-written by Morin and used as a basis for the system of High Degrees he developed in the West Indies before his death.”
    What does the DC Scottish Rite claim again?
    “Early writers long believed that a “Rite of Perfection” consisting of 25 degrees, the highest being the “Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret,” and being the predecessor of the Scottish Rite, had been formed in Paris by a high degree council calling itself “The Council of Emperors of the East and West.” The title “Rite of Perfection” first appeared in the Preface to the “Grand Constitutions of 1786,” the authority for which is now known to be faulty. It is now generally accepted that this Rite of twenty-five degrees was compiled by Estienne Morin and is therefore more properly titled “The Rite of the Royal Secret,” or “Morin’s Rite.”"
    Complete nonsense then from the Jesuit-alligned element within the Scottish Rite.
    Much claptrap has been written about Morin too. Your obsessing about the “Chapter of Clermont” is a red herring which distracts from the fact that the Jesuits of Clermont College created the original higher degrees of Freemasonry, which led into what became the Scottish Rite. Whether its Jurina Lina, the Supreme Council 33° of the US Southern Jurisdiction or Terry Melanson pushing the “No Jesuits” Masonic smokescreen pseudo-history cover story & its supporting texts have one source: the Jesuits of Borgo Spirito Santo in Rome.
    This is reinforced by the information that I revealed above :
    that “… both the Scottish Rite Supreme Council 33° of the Gran Loggia d’Italia (GLDI, founded in 1910 after a schism with the Grande Oriente d’Italia) & the Church of the Gesù – the mother church of the Jesuits – are located in Piazza del Gesù! In fact the GLDI is known as the Piazza del Gesù obedience. This body is recognised by the Scottish Rite’s US Southern Jurisdiction (”Mother of the World”) Supreme Council 33° in Washington, DC. The Jesuits control both the Roman Catholic Church & many elements within high-level Freemasonry on both sides of the Atlantic.
    The Grande Oriente Italiano obedience (founded 1975, not to be confused with the Grande Oriente d’Italia) is also to be found at Piazza del Gesù, as is the Scottish Rite Supreme Council 33° of the Gran Loggia Nazionale Italiana (founded 1979).”
    Terry, you say:
    “Historians, who study these things to get the facts right. Knowledge – especially wrong knowledge – is constantly being reassessed. You are about 100 years out of touch, and relying upon people who are perpetuating an error of 200 years ago”
    That “error” was actually true back then & that fact (which you consider “wrong knowledge” – is that English, BTW?) & others regarding the Jesuit-directed Vatican/Masonic connection is as true now as it was then.

  5. “Your obsessing about the “Chapter of Clermont” is a red herring which distracts”
    Yes, I obsess over the details, especially when I know something to wrong. So-called Chapter of Clermont was invented by the Marquis Gabriel de Lernais (sometimes: Lernay, Lernet, Tilly de Lernet, or Filley de Lernay) in the Berlin Lodge Les Trois Globe for the nobility, in 1761: Chapitre d’Elus. Since the Duke of Clermont, the Grand Master of French Masonry, had to give them a patent, it became known as Chapitre de Clermont.
    “is reinforced by the information that I revealed above ”
    Nope. Totally non related, in time, space and relevance. That the Italian Grand Lodge, in the early 20th century, made it’s home at the center of Rome just as the Jesuits, is of no consequence and meaningless to the problem of the so-called Chapter of Clermont. The Pantheon is there too, and to have such a prized piece of real estate to call home merely illustrates the pull that Masonry has within that country. Again, of no consequence to French Masonry and the conflation of the origins of the Chapitre d’Elus in the 18th Century.
    “pushing the “No Jesuits” Masonic smokescreen pseudo-history ”
    You engage in pseudo-history. That’s the “smokescreen”; a smokescreen for the gullible.

  6. Masonry is the cartoon version of the true core of the Roman Catholic sect. Triangles, hammers, numbers, rites, etc.: if to be free you need all that, so I like to be a slave.
    To know the Lord (if you believe in it) you don’t need rites, hammers, numbers, etc., all that is an obstacle. But the first goal of the Roman Catholic church IS the one to hinder the direct communion of the faithful with the Lord…. (Canon 32 of Council of Trent launchig anathema on whoever dares to think that salvation doesn’t need of ‘good works’).
    Masonry is the translation in a folcoric magic code of the essence of Romanism (salvation through ‘good works’ —> hence salvation through ‘sacrificial offers to the gods’ —> hence salvation only through ‘material sphere of reality’ —> hence salvation only throug ‘kneeling in front of the organization which manage the material sphere of relity cause its higher ‘knoweledge’).
    This is the reason for which the Masonic dog likes to stay near the Counter Reformation wolf in the Piazza del Gesù kennel. And venerates the 90° objects… Please, what is the position of the butler in front of his lord? How many degrees?
    Between you and the Lord there’s only your hearth, as the Luther’s logo efficently describes. Any other form of ‘intermediary’ is a parasyte. Masonry and its ‘gnosticism’ among the firsts.
    (You can substitute the word “astrology” with “masonry” etc. – Do you know what is an “homomorphism”? Masonry is ISOMORPHIC to the evil Society of Loyola)

    ——————————– QUOTE ——————–
    The basic assumption in Astrology is that one does not need to know God personally, nor does one need to align one’s character with Jesus Christ. All one needs to do is to intellectually study the stars and planets, along with their symbolism—and then align one’s life accordingly. Thus, it is no longer faith, but knowledge that is the key to life.
    The Greek word for knowledge is gnosis . It is the word forming the basis of the religion of Gnosticism, founded by Simon Magus. We spoke of this religion in FFI #181 and #182.

  7. Thanks for your perceptive comments Avles & for your most interesting contributions at Unhived Mind & elsewhere.
    I have taken the past couple of months out from posting much there, here or elsewhere, having had to attend to other matters. I have a number of comments from other posters that I need to approve & add replies to. You’ve reminded me by posting here that I still need to reply to Terry Melanson above. I enjoyed his Red Ice interview but have other material that supports my position regarding the links between Rome & advanced-degree Masonry from its inception & intend to post that soon, along with other material that I am half-way through studying.
    Avles: any info or commentary that you have the time, energy or inclination to contribute to any of the pieces at this research resource are welcome. I can’t guarantee that I’ll have the time to return the favour, but just thought that I’d mention it.
    Also: Please feel free to add your own webpage address below for other researchers.
    Godspeed -

  8. “I can’t guarantee that I’ll have the time to return the favour, but just thought that I’d mention it.”
    It doesn’t need you answer to every mail sent by me or others agreeing with you. Spare time & energy for the topics that are really important!

  9. If you get the chance, check out Freeman’s new 2-part interview on Red Ice on “Barackhenaton”. I’ve been a bit critical of Freeman before, but there is some interesting material there. As always: “eat the meat & spit out the bones”, as Eric says.
