hen a Jesuit of the minor
rank is to be elevated to command, he is conducted into the
Chapel of the Convent of the Order, where there are only three
others present, the principal or Superior standing in front of
the altar. On either side stands a monk, one of whom holds a
banner of yellow and white, which are the Papal colors, and the
other a black banner with a dagger and red cross above a skull
and crossbones, with the word INRI, and below them the words
IUSTUM, NECAR, REGES, IMPIOUS. The meaning of which is: It is
just to exterminate or annihilate impious or heretical Kings,
Governments, or Rulers. Upon the floor is a red cross at which
the postulant or candidate kneels. The Superior hands him a
small black crucifix, which he takes in his left hand and
presses to his heart, and the Superior at the same time presents
to him a dagger, which he grasps by the blade and holds the
point against his heart, the Superior still holding it by the
hilt, and thus addresses the postulant:"
"My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler:
among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to be a spy
even among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no
man. Among the Reformers, to be a reformer; among the Huguenots,
to be a Huguenot; among the Calvinists, to be a Calvinist; among
other Protestants, generally to be a Protestant, and obtaining
their confidence, to seek even to preach from their pulpits, and
to denounce with all the vehemence in your nature our Holy
Religion and the Pope; and even to descend so low as to become a
Jew among Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all
information for the benefit of your Order as a faithful soldier
of the Pope."
"You have been taught to insidiously plant the seeds of jealousy
and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at
peace, and incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war
with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in
countries that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the
arts and the sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace. To
take sides with the combatants and to act secretly with your
brother Jesuit, who might be engaged on the other side, but
openly opposed to that with which you might be connected, only
that the Church might be the gainer in the end, in the
conditions fixed in the treaties for peace and that the end
justifies the means."
"You have been taught your duty as a spy, to gather all
statistics, facts and information in your power from every
source; to ingratiate yourself into the confidence of the family
circle of Protestants and heretics of every class and character,
as well as that of the merchant, the banker, the lawyer, among
the schools and universities, in parliaments and legislatures,
and the judiciaries and councils of state, and to be all things
to all men, for the Pope's sake, whose servants we are unto
"You have received all your instructions heretofore as a novice,
a neophyte, and have served as co-adjurer, confessor and priest,
but you have not yet been invested with all that is necessary to
command in the Army of Loyola in the service of the Pope. You
must serve the proper time as the instrument and executioner as
directed by your superiors; for none can command here who has
not consecrated his labors with the blood of the heretic; for
"without the shedding of blood no man can be saved." Therefore,
to fit yourself for your work and make your own salvation sure,
you will, in addition to your former oath of obedience to your
order and allegiance to the Pope, repeat after me:-"

Pontificate of Paul the Third, and continued to the present, do
by the womb of the virgin, the matrix of God, and the rod of
Jesus Christ, declare and swear, that his holiness the Pope is
Christ's Vice-regent and is the true and only head of the
Catholic or Universal Church throughout the earth; and that by
virtue of the keys of binding and loosing, given to his Holiness
by my Savior, Jesus Christ, he hath power to depose heretical
kings, princes, states, commonwealths and governments, all being
illegal without his sacred confirmation and that they may safely
"Therefore, to the utmost of my power I shall and will defend
this doctrine of his Holiness' right and custom against all
usurpers of the heretical or Protestant authority whatever,
especially the Lutheran of Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden,
Norway, and the now pretended authority and churches of England
and Scotland, and branches of the same now established in
Ireland and on the Continent of America and elsewhere; and all
adherents in regard that they be usurped and heretical, opposing
the sacred Mother Church of Rome. I do now renounce and disown
any allegiance as due to any heretical king, prince or state
named Protestants or Liberals, or obedience to any of the laws,
magistrates or officers."
"I do further declare that the doctrine of the churches of
England and Scotland, of the Calvinists, Huguenots and others of
the name Protestants or Liberals to be damnable and they
themselves damned who will not forsake the same."
"I do further declare, that I will help, assist, and advise all
or any of his Holiness' agents in any place wherever I shall be,
in Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway,
England, Ireland or America, or in any other Kingdom or
territory I shall come to, and do my uttermost to extirpate the
heretical Protestants or Liberals' doctrines and to destroy all
their pretended powers, legal or otherwise."
"I do further promise and declare, that notwithstanding I am
dispensed with, to assume my religion heretical, for the
propaganda of the Mother Church's interest, to keep secret and
private all her agents' counsels from time to time, as they may
entrust me and not to divulge, directly or indirectly, by word,
writing or circumstance whatever; but to execute all that shall
be proposed, given in charge or discovered unto me, by you, my
ghostly father, or any of this sacred covenant."
"I do further promise and declare, that I will have no opinion
or will of my own, or any mental reservation whatever, even as a
corpse or cadaver (perinde ac cadaver), but will unhesitatingly
obey each and every command that I may receive from my superiors
in the Militia of the Pope and of Jesus Christ."
"That I may go to any part of the world withersoever I may be
sent, to the frozen regions of the North, the burning sands of
the desert of Africa, or the jungles of India, to the centers of
civilization of Europe, or to the wild haunts of the barbarous
savages of America, without murmuring or repining, and will be
submissive in all things whatsoever communicated to me."
"I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when
opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly
or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I
am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the
face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex
or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle
and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and
wombs of their women and crush their infants' heads against the
walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. That
when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the
poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard
or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or
authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their
condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time

throat from ear to ear, my belly opened and sulphur burned
therein, with all the punishment that can be inflicted upon me
on earth and my soul be tortured by demons in an eternal hell

and blessed Sacraments, which I am now to receive, to perform
and on my part to keep inviolable; and do call all the heavenly
and glorious host of heaven to witness the blessed Sacrament of
the Eucharist, and witness the same further with my name written
and with the point of this dagger dipped in my own blood and
sealed in the face of this holy covenant."
(He receives the wafer from the Superior and writes his name
with the point of his dagger dipped in his own blood taken from
over his heart.)
"You will now rise to your feet and I will instruct you in the
Catechism necessary to make yourself known to any member of the
Society of Jesus belonging to this rank."
"In the first place, you, as a Brother Jesuit, will with another
mutually make the ordinary sign of the cross as any ordinary
Roman Catholic would; then one cross his wrists, the palms of
his hands open, and the other in answer crosses his feet, one
above the other; the first points with forefinger of the right
hand to the center of the palm of the left, the other with the
forefinger of the left hand points to the center of the palm of
the right; the first then with his right hand makes a circle
around his head, touching it; the other then with the forefinger
of his left hand touches the left side of his body just below
his heart; the first then with his right hand draws it across
the throat of the other, and the latter then with a dagger down
the stomach and abdomen of the first. The first then says Iustum;
and the other answers Necar; the first Reges. The other answers
Impious." (The meaning of which has already been explained.)
"The first will then present a small piece of paper folded in a
peculiar manner, four times, which the other will cut
longitudinally and on opening the name Jesu will be found
written upon the head and arms of a cross three times. You will
then give and receive with him the following questions and

The Oath administered to the
Illuminati is based upon the Oath of
Before the Oath is administered it is said --
a sword is pointed at the breast:
"Shouldst thou become a traitor or perjurer, let this sword
remind thee of each and all the members in arms against thee. Do
not hope to find safety; whithersoever thou mayest fly, shame
and remorse as well as the vengeance of thine unknown brothers
will torture and pursue thee."

obedience to all superiors and regulations of the Order. I also
renounce my own personal views and opinions as well as all
control of my powers and capacities. I promise also to consider
the well-being of the Order as my own, and I am ready, as long
as I am a member, to serve it with my goods, my honour, and my
life . . . If I act against the rules and well-being of the
Society, I will submit myself to the penalties to which my
superiors may condemn me . . ."

illuminised man), swear to break the bonds which still bind you
to your father, mother, brothers, sisters, wife, relatives,
friends, mistresses, kings, chiefs, benefactors, and all persons
to whomsoever you may have promised faith, obedience, and
service. Name and curse the place where you were born, so that
you may dwell in another sphere, to which you will attain only
after having renounced this pestilential globe, vile refuse of
the heavens! From this moment you are free from the so-called
oath to country and laws: swear to reveal to the new chief,
recognised by you, what you may have seen or done, intercepted,
read or heard, learned or surmised, and also seek for and spy
out what your eyes cannot discern. Honour and respect the

prompt, and necessary means of purging the globe by death of
those who seek to vilify the truth and sieze it from our hands.
Fly from Spain, Naples, and all accursed land; finally fly from
the temptation to reveal what you may hear, for the thunder is
no prompter that the knife, which awaits you in whatsoever place
you may be. Live in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy
Spirit. (The Trinity of Illuminism -- Cabalistic and Gnostic.
The Father -- the generating fire; the Holy Spirit -- the Great
Mother Nature, reproducing all things; the Son -- the
manifestation, the vital fluid, the astral light of Illuminism)."
Unknown to the members of these various secret societies seeking
"Illumination" and "deification," their masters are the
Cabalistic Jew, the originator of Gnostic mysticism. (Please see

History of the Jesuits
Initial Membership List of the Knights of Malta
"The three forms of initiation -- individual, group, or
universal -- all lead to conscious or unconscious control by a
central power, who in some mysterious way makes its influence
felt; often clairvoyantly and clairaudiently seen and heard, but
never physically present or visible. the system in all
three is the same -- cabalistic. Secretly here and there
individuals are prepared; these again form groups or centres
from which influences spread until they form a network covering
the entire world. Like rays from a hidden sun these groups are
apparently divergent and detatched, but in reality all issue
from the same central body. The system is seen to be an
insidious and secret dissemination of ideas, orienting and
breaking down all barriers of family, religion, morality,
nationality, and all self-initiative thought, always under the
cloak of a new and more modern religion, new thought, new
morality, a new heaven and a new earth; until it evolves a
gigantic robot merely answering to the will and commands of a
secret Master Mind. They dream they are free, original,
self-determining individuals; they are but the negative moon
reflecting and reproducing the light from the same hidden and
cabalistic Sun. It is called regeneration by the
Illuminati; it is in truth individual death and disintegration,
followed by a resurrection as negative "light-bearers" of this
cabalistic dark Sun whose Luciferian "Grand Plan" is world
domination." (Anonymous, Light-bearers of Darkness, The
Christian Book Club of America, p105).
The Jewish Encyclopaedia points out that Gnosticism "was
Jewish in character long before it became Christian," and quotes
the opinion, "a movement closely connected with Jewish
mysticism." The Freemason Ragon says: "The Cabala is the key of
the occult sciences. The Gnostics were born of the Cabalists."
Rabbi Benamozegh says, "Those who will take the trouble to
examine with care the connection between Judaism and philosophic
Freemasonry, theosophy, and the mysteries in general . . . will
cease to smile in pity at the suggestion that Cabalistic
theology may have a role to play in the religious
transformations of the future. . . . It contains the key to the
modern religious problem" (Anonymous, Light- bearers of
Darkness, The Christian Book Club of America, p11).
"Chaldean thought acted powerfully upon orthodox Judaism and
determined the growth of a sect in its midst which was to
transform Israel. . . . This sect was that of the Pharisees.
. . . What they borrowed (from the Chaldeans) in fact . . . was
the essence of the Pantheistic doctrine . . . It was then that
was formed from these borrowings that Kabalah of the Pharisees
which was for long transmitted orally from Master to disciple,
and was, 800 years later, to inspire the compilation of the
Talmud, and found its completest expression in the Sepher ha
Zohar. . . . This religion of the 'Deified Man,' with which
they were impregnated in Babylon, was only conceived as
benefiting the Jew, superior and predestinated being. . . ." (M.
Flavien Bernier, Les Juifs et le Talmud, 1913).
The Jewish writer Bernard Lazare said, "It is certain that there
were Jews even at the cradle of Freemasonry -- Cabalistic Jews,
as it is proved by certain existing rites . . . The Jew is also
a builder: proud, ambitious, domineering, he tries to draw
everything to himself. He is not satisfied with de-Christianising,
he Judaises; he destroys the Catholic or Protestant faith, he
provokes indifference, but he imposes his idea of the world, of
morals, and of life upon whose faith he ruins; he works at his
age-old task -- the annihilation of the religion of Christ!"
Mrs. Nesta Webster in Secret Societies and Subversive
"The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion have been
marvellously correct as prophecy, foreshadowing all of this in a
remarkable way, whatever their first origin, before Maurice Joly
used part of them in 1864."
"Dr. Ranking, who has devoted many years of study to the
question . . . in a very interesting paper published in the
masonic journal, Ars Quatuor Coronatorum, observes: 'That
from the very commencement of Christianity there has been
transmitted through the centuries a body of doctrine
incompatible with Christianity in the various official Churches.
That the bodies teaching these doctrines profess to do so on the
authority of St. John, to whom, as they claimed, the true
secrets had been committed by the Founder of Christianity, that
during the Middle Ages, the main support of the Gnostic bodies
and the main repository of this knowledge (Johannism) was the
Society of the Templars.' And he further said, 'The record of
the Templars in Palestine is one long tale of intrigue and
treachery on the part of the Order'."
In his History of Magic, Eliphas Levi informs us:
"The Templars had two doctrines: one was concealed and reserved
to the leaders, being that of Johannism; the other was public,
being Roman Catholic doctrine. . . The Johannism of the adepts
was the Kabalah of the Gnostics, but it degenerated speedily
into a mystic pantheism carried even to idolatry of Nature and
hatred of all revealed dogma. . . They fostered the regrets of
every fallen worship and the hopes of every new cultus,
promising to all liberty of conscience and a new orthodoxy which
should be the synthesis of all persecuted beliefs. They went
even so far as to recognise the pantheistic symbolism of the
grand masters of Black Magic . . . they rendered divine honours
to the monstrous idol Baphomet."

of Rome in the time of Domitian, the House of Wisdom in Cairo,
