these are the reverse sides of the tablets of the ancient "law," the right understanding and meaning of which have long since been forgotten.


the "name of the "rose"


transformation of topology for the key


this is the meaning of the "true" Rose and the arefact discovered in the ruins by the knights and monks of the area.


these diagrams will show you how the 7 Kamea #-squares fit together, and how their "places in the zodiac" were derived therefrom.

The history of the 'Schwedenkiste' is quite an adventurous one for archival material. The leading Illuminate Bode of Weimar died in December 1793. His estate included the most important part of the correspondence of the Order of the Illuminati of Gotha and Weimar. These papers became the property of the other leading Illuminate Herzog Ernst v. Gotha, where they were kept safely. After his death in 1804 his own estate together with Bode's documents was handed over to the archive of the Grand National Lodge of Sweden, because Herzog Ernst was convinced that his heritage was not safe from publication in any of the German lodges. Under the supervision of the Swedish king Karl XIII. though, it was guaranteed that no information would ever reach the public. Some years later, in 1880, Herzog Ernst II. of Saxony Coburg Gotha (great-grandchild of the Illuminate Herzog of Saxony Coburg Gotha and Altenburg) asked for the documents to be returned, and three years later, in 1883, the stock became property of the lodge "Ernst zum Kompaß" in Gotha. Following the order of the Herzog, the material was put in order in 20 volumes. Later, in 1909, Reverend Carl Lepp added quite useful registers and lists of documents; the material was then named Schwedenkiste. Also in the freemason archive in Gotha the files were strictly kept under lock and key since the Herzog ordered the lodge not to allow any publication whatsoever. This obligation was solely taken seriously in the 1920's and 1930's, the time of the idea of total conspiracy. Until before World War I, a number of researchers, mainly freemasons, were allowed to work with the content of the Schwedenkiste. Among them were the restorer of the Order of the Illuminati, Leopold Engel, and the French author of the early, exhaustive work on the Illuminati, Rene Le Forrestier (who was not a freemason). (..) On March 20th, 1936, the documents were confiscated within the framework of the national socialist persecution of the freemasons. (...) In 1945 they were then transported to the Soviet Union. 

We have to assume that in the years 1934/35 all the possessions of the freemasons were confiscated by the National Socialists. Everything, packed in boxes ended up in cellars, air-raid shelters and other store-rooms. A few items though were hidden by freemasons hoping for better times to come. Some single objects do appear here and there in antiquarian book shops and in the antique trade. Nearly all books have been found by now. Most of the still missing documents and other material are kept in Moscow, and today there is no justifiable reason to hold them back any longer. 

It is difficult to investigate if at all and to which extent further possessions of the German freemasons do exist in other countries. In Poland freemason objects from Pomerania, Silesia, Brandenburg, West and East Prussia were brought together to a library near Poznan with about 80,000 German freemason books. This library exists since 1984 and keeps close contact with the Freemason Museum in Bayreuth. The keeping of these books in Poland is not considered a loss, since these editions also do exist in German freemason libraries. 

A great part was destroyed during the war, and another untraceable part has fallen into private hands not only in Germany but also in other countries. Since none of the freemasons who lived during the early 30's is still alive, it is practically impossible to investigate which objects are lost or missing. The author does not rule out that sooner or later further losses will be found or that somewhere in Germany or abroad more freemason assets presumably missing will be discovered.

A. Preparatory Degrees 
1. Novice and Teacher, almost apart as such from ceremonial procedure. 
2. Academy of Illuminism, otherwise, Brethren of Minerva. 
- the reception was at the end of night in a dark room. 
3. Illuminatus Minor 
4. Illuminatus Major, otherwise "Scottish Novice" (reflected form Masonry). 
The Candidate is represented as depositing an account of his life in the hands of his Sponsor, and this was checked by information derived from the Intelligence Department of the Order. 

B. Intermediary Degree 
1. Scottish Knight of Illuminsm, founded on Ecossais Grades of Masonic Chivalry and reproducing points of their procedure. An alternative name was: Illuminatus Dirigens." The Candidate was called upon to testify his belief that the Superiors of Illuminism were also the unknown and lawful Superiors of Freemasonry. 

C. Class of the Lesser Mysteries 
1. Epopt, or Priest of Illuminism. 
- the Candidate was hood-winked and driven by a circuitous route to a place of assembly. He was brought into a brightly illuminated Temple, where was a vacant throne, by which lay the insignia of royalty, and a cushion whereon was folded a white priestly robe and girdle. The Candidate was to choose between them, and if he was guided rightly he became a Priest of the Order, when a part of its policy was unveiled to him. 
2. Regent or Principatus Illuminatus. 
- the political aspects of the Order were developed in the Grade of Knighthood. 

D. Class of the Greater Mysteries 
1. Magus or Philosopher 
2. Man-King. 
- the last Mysteries were combined in these Degrees, but no account of their Ritual procedure has transpired.
