The Jesuitical Maneuvers in Freemasonry can be summarized as below, according to these 3 authoritative sources: (Original quotes posted at the bottom part of this page)
Jesuits introduced Catholic ceremonies into Freemasonry from 1735 to 1740.Masonic candidates were no longer received in a lodge, but in the city of Jerusalem; not the real Jerusalem, but a clerical ‘Jerusalem,’ typifying Rome.Masonic meetings were called Capitula Canonicorum, and a monkish language and asceticism prevailed inside the Masonic lodges.
Jesuit degrees were established in Freemasonry.The rite of the Strict Observance of Freemasonry was permeated by the Jesuitical leaven.Jesuits were responsible for the assassination of Pellegrino Rossi, the Minister of Justice in the government of the Papal States, under Pope Pius IXJesuit influence in Freemasonry was classified as Masonic secrets.Jesuits and illuminati employed Freemasonry as their un-conscious tools.Freemasonry had been made the tool of prince- and priest-craft, though occasionally it turned the tables on the prince.Jesuitical maneuvers in Freemasonry were so strong that Freemasonry, which professes to meddle neither with politics nor religion, counteracted the political and religious machinations of the Jesuits.Jesuit launched Masonic degrees for women in 1779, requiring Masonic women to prepare to sacrifice life for the good of the catholic, apostolic Roman Church.German Jesuit swindler Grossing created another order of the RoseJesuit Masons had some Chinese converts in the 1700s.Jesuits solemnly excommunicated Freemasonry in 1870.
In 1880, Jesuits exacted from every candidate for admission to the society a declaration that he was not a Mason.Jesuits frequently interfered in Freemasonry.Jesuits insinuated themselves into the English Lodges, where they were caressed by the Catholics, who panted after the re-establishment of their faith, and tolerated by the Protestant royalists, who thought no concession too great a compensation for their services.Jesuits insinuated themselves into the Lodges, and contributed to encrease that religious mysticism that is to be observed in all the ceremonies of the order. The Loges had become familiar with the Jesuit invention.Numerous Rosycrucian Lodges were established, adopting the constitution of the Jesuits, dividing the Fraternity into circles, each under the management of its own superior, known to the president, but unknown to the individuals of the Lodges. These superiors were connected with each other in a way known only to themselves, and the whole was under one General.Jesuits invented some of the Masonic Degrees and systems
A side note on Rosicrucian Martin Luther : Martin Luther was a Rosicrucian, which means he was a Freemason under the Jesuit control. Does this explain why William Tyndale was burned to death for translating the Bible, two years after the Jesuit Order was founded, but Martin Luther who translated the Bible before William Tyndale, never suffered death, not even any torture?… Did Martin Luther have a deal with the Jesuits? Martin Luther remained a Roman Catholic till death. Many of his beliefs were of Rome. For example: infant baptism, sinless Mary, perpetual virgin Mary, Queen of Heaven, Jew-hatred, etc. etc.. Luther died of sickness 12 years after the Jesuit Order was established.
The similar fate of Knights Templars (Freemasons) and Jesuits:1.Both were suppressed by a Papal bull. Knights Templar was suppressed in 1312, never restored by pope. However, it survives to this date, within Freemasonry, some of them are pastors in some Protestant churches; Jesuits were suppressed in 1773, but were restored in 1814, a term of a Jesuit truce accepted by the pope.
2.The Knights Templar and the Jesuit Order were the only two military orders to hold a Papal document granting them exclusive rights to conduct banking and financial activities in Catholic history.
Why and how was the Jesuit Order restored?
Revenge is a dish best served cold. The Jesuits made use of the Knights Templar’s desire of revenge on the Papacy and King Philip for burning Templars and their grand masterJacques de Molay alive to achieve their own revenge on the Papacy.
Jesuits radicalized Freemasons to orchestrate the French Revolution against both the Catholic Church, and the French monarchy. King Philippe’s descendant, Louis XVI, was beheaded before a cheering crowd. As the king’s head rolled off the guillotine, a man reportedly leapt onto the scaffold and flung Louis’ blood all over the crowd, shouting “Jacques de Molay, thou art avenged!”
Masonic Festival of the Supreme Being on 8 June 1794
Pope Pius VI was expelled from the Papal States by French troops from 1798 until his death one year later in Valence. Following the death of Pius VI, Pius VII appointed Cardinal Ercole Consalvi to negotiate the Concordat of 1801 with Napoleon, which reaffirmed the Roman Catholic Church as the established church of France and restored some of its civil status.
However, Pope Pius VII steadfastly refused to reinstate the Jesuit order. Napoleon then proceeded to Invade Italy and capture the Papal states in 1808. The Pope himself was captured Castel Sant’Angelo and removed from Rome a prisoner in 1809.
As it became clear that Napoleon’s power would be short lived, JesuitGeneral Brzozowski sent word in 1813 to the imprisoned Pope Pius VII offering a truce between the Jesuits and the Papacy if he restore the Order. Pius VII agreed and General Brzozowski set about ensuring the support of a broad coalition against Napoleon (Napoleon now became a worthless used garment) with both the Jesuit and Papal blessing.
At the Congress of Vienna (Nov 1, 1814 to June 8, 1815) The Papal States were restored as promised. Pope Pius VII returned to Rome and abolished most of the reforms introduced by the French; he restored the Jesuit order and the Inquisition and imposed to the Jews to live again in the Ghetto.
After the fall of Napoleon, Cardinal Ercole Consalvi represented the Pope at the Congress of Vienna and thanked the Jesuits who was able to convince the victorious powers to restore the Papal States almost entirely (although the Papacy had been forced to accept the French annexation of Avignon).
On August 7, 1814, forty-one years after Clement XIV suppressed the Society, Pius VII sought peace with the Jesuits and celebrated mass in the Church of the Gesú, and formally promulgated the bull of restoration, Sollicitudo omnium ecclesiarum.
In October of 1822, Pope Pius VII called a secret meeting with the
Kings of Russia, Prussia and Austria and entered into a Holy Alliance
known as the Treaty of Verona.
The treaty was dedicated to the eradication of Europe’s representative governments and the re-establishment of absolute monarchies. It also purposed to suppress the media (the press) and to use religion to “keep the nations in the state of passive obedience”. The document, signed on September 26th,1822, also expressed ” their thanks to the Pope for what he has already done for them, and solicit his constant co-operation in their views of submitting the nations.”
It was because of this Treaty that President Monroe of the United States issued his warning that any action of the Catholic Church in America to promote the Holy Alliance would be considered an act of war, issuing the famous Monroe Doctrine. (One-evil.org)
Conclusions:The Jesuits not only restored themselves through intrigues, but also restored their cover the Papacy.Freemasons were used as unconscious tools and placed in the foreground while Jesuits maneuvering them behind the scenes.Jesuits are skillful in inventing misinformation to conceal the their crimes. Jesuit priest Abbé Augustin Barruel wrote that the French Revolution was planned and executed by the secret societies (the Bavarian Illuminati and Freemasonry) in 1797, but he never revealed the Jesuit involvement in the French Revolution. More disgustingly, Barruel circulated a letter in 1086, calling attention to the nonexistent Jewish conspiracy of the French Revolution he had earlier attributed to the secret societies.
|Excepts from The Secret Societies of All Ages and Countries, Volume 1 & 2, by Charles William Heckethorn, Published by R. Bentley and son, 1875; Original from Harvard University 389. … The sect of the “Consistorials ” aimed at the preservation of feudal and theocratic dominion. The rich and ambitious patricians of Rome and other Italian states belonged to it ; Tabot, an ex-Jesuit and Confessor to the Holy Father, was the ruling spirit.420. Secret Societies in Spain. – Even before the French Revolution there existed in Spain secret societies, some averse to monarchical government, others in favor of clerocracy. Among the latter may be mentioned the “Concepcionistas,” or “Defenders of the Immaculate Conception” who carried their zeal for Ferdinand VII and their tenderness for the Church to such a degree as to desire the return of the blessed times of the Holy Inquisition. They also sought to get hold of the management of public affairs, to turn them to their own profit; and the dismal administration of the Bourbons shows that they partly succeeded. Probably from this association arose that of the “Defenders of the Faith,” Jesuits in disguise, who in 1820 spread themselves over Spain, taking care of the throne and altar, and still more of themselves.434. Jesuitical Influence. –– Catholic ceremonies, unknown in ancient Freemasonry, were introduced from 1735 to 1740; in the Chapter of Clermont, so called in honor of Louis of Bourbon, Prince of Clermont, at .the time grand master of the Order in France. From that time, the influence of the Jesuits on the fraternity made itself more and more felt. The candidate was no longer received in a lodge, but in the city of Jerusalem; not the ideal Jerusalem, but a clerical Jerusalem, typifying Rome. The meetings were called Capitula Canonicorum, and a monkish language and asceticism prevailed therein. In the statutes is seen the hand of James Lainez, the second general of the Jesuits, and the aim at universal empire betrays itself, for at the reception of the sublime knights the last two chapters of the Apocalypse are read to the candidate-a glowing picture of that universal monarchy which the Jesuits hoped to establish. The sect spread very rapidly, for when Baron Hund came to Paris in 1742, and was received into the highest Jesuit degrees he found on his return to Germany that those degrees were already established in Saxony and Thuringia, under the government of Marshall, whose labours he undertook to promote.435. The Strict Observance (a Rite of Freemasonry). … and the rite of the Strict Observance [was] permeated by the Jesuitical leaven … It is certain that at one time the power of the New Templars was very great, and prepared the way for the Illuminati.|
446. Assassination of Rossi. … From what I have since learnt it would seem that the clerical party and not the Carbonari, planned and executed the deed… Rossi, shortly before his death, had levied contributions
to the extent of four million scudi on clerical property, and
was known to plan further schemes to reduce the influence of the
Church… The reasons for attributing the death of Rossi to the
Carbonari or the Jesuits are of equal weight on both sides.
441. Discussions at Wilhelmsbad.––The statements contained in Dr. Stark’s book, ” The Coping Stone ” (437), concerning the influence of the Jesuits in the masonic body being unable to give information concerning the secrets, formed one of the chief topics discussed. Some of the chiefs of the StriQbservance produced considerable confusion by of the high degrees, which they had professed to know ; or to render an account of large sums they had received on behalf of the Order. The main point was to settle whether Masonry was to be considered as a continuation of the Order of the Templars and whether the secrets of the sect were to be sought for in the modern Templar degrees. After thirty sittings, the answer was in the negative ; the chiefs of the Strict Observance were defeated, and the Duke of Irunswick suspended the Order for three years, from which blow it never recovered. The Swedes professed to possess all the secrets; the Duke of Brunswick hastened to Upsala to learn them, but found that the Swedes knew no more than the Germans; whence new dissensions arose between the Masons of the two nations.
442. … a new degree, that of the “Knights of Beneficence,” which was based on the principles enunciated in St. Martin’s book, Des Erreurs et de la Verite, and the Tableau Naturel. The foundation of the new Order was attributed to the influence of the Jesuits … Another result was a league between Masonry and the Illuminati-and it is still a matter of speculation whether these latter were not behind the Jesuits-brought about by the exertions of Spartacus or Weishaupt, who had long ago discerned the influence he could obtain by the co-operation of the Masons, whom he, of course, employed as his un-conscious tools. But Jesuitical influence, at that time, was too powerful to be overcome; they sided with, and thus strengthened the influence of, the duke; hence the opposition of Germany to the principles of the French Revolution, which broke out soon after-an opposition which was carried to its height by the manifesto of the Duke of Brunswick, so loudly praised by courtly historians, and of which the German princes made such good use as to induce the German confederacy to surround France with a fiery line of deluded patriotism. Freemasonry had been made the tool of prince- and priest-craft, though occasionally it turned the tables on the prince …
453. Jesuitical Maneuvers. ––Napoleonic Freemasonry, not entirely to lose its peculiar physiognomy, ventured to change its institutions. Jesuitism cast loving eyes on it, and drew it towards itself, as in the days of the Strict Observance. Murat threw out his net, but was removed just when it was most important for the interests of the Jesuits that he should have remained. He proposed to transform the French lodges––of which, in 1852, there were 325, whilst in 1861 only 269 could be found––into societies of mutual succour, and to abandon or submit the higher masonic sphere of morality and humanity to thesociety, which in these last sixty years has already overcome and incorporated the whole Roman clergy, once its rivals, and by oblique paths also many of the conservative sects of other creeds. Murat did not succeed, but others may; and though the Masons say that Jesuitism shall not succeed, yet, how is Freemasonry, that professes to meddle neither with politics nor religion, to counteract the political and religious machinations of the Jesuits? And even if Freemasonry had the same weapons, are there men among the Order able to them with the ability and fearlessness that distinguish the followers of Loyola? I fear not.
Besides, the Masons, though they talk loudly of fraternisation and equality, when driven at bay become the stanchest conservatives, wherefore the International at Lyons, in the year 1870, solemnly excommunicated Freemasonry, and in 1880 exacted from every candidate for admission to the society a declaration that he was not a Mason.
468. Jesuit Degrees. ––The Jesuits, qui vont fourrer leur nez partout, soon poked it into Adoptive Masonry (lodges for women)-for to get hold of the women is to get hold of the better half of mankind-and founded new lodges, or modified existing ones of that rite to further their own purposes. Thus it is that a truly monkish asceticism was introduced into some of them, by the Jesuits divided into ten degrees; and we find such passages in the catechism as these: “Are you prepared, sister, to sacrifice life for the good of the catholic, apostolic Roman Church?” The tenth or last degree was called the “Princess of the Crown,” and a great portion of the ritual treats of the Queen of Sheba. This rite was established in Saxony in 1779.
474. German Order of the Rose. ––Another order of the Rose was founded in Germany in 1784 by one Francis Matthaus Grossinger, who ennobled himself by assuming the title of Francis Rudolph von Grossing. He was born in 1752 at Komorn, in Hungary; his father was a butcher, his mother the daughter of a tanner. Grossing was a Jesuit, but on the suppression of the Order he led a wandering life, and eventually reached Vienna, where he obtained the protection of the father confessor of the empress, who in 1777 granted him a pension of six hundred florins, which, however, he lost by her death. He then lived by all kinds of swindling and finally founded a philanthropic order, which, after the name of the supposititious grand mistress, the Lady of Rosenwald, he called the “Order of the Rose.”
480. The Gormogones (formed by expelled Freemason Philip Wharton) .
–This Order was founded in Englandin 1724. The names and birthplaces of
the members were written in cipher, and the Order was said to have been
brought by a Chinese mandarin (a Jesuit missionary?) to England, it being in great repute in China (Rome), and
to possess extraordinary secrets. It held a chapter at the Castle
Tavern, London, but was dissolved in 1738. It is supposed to have been
an attempt of the Jesuits,
by the help of masonic ceremonies, to gain converts to Catholicism, and
that Ramsay, the inventor of the so-called higher degrees, had
something to do with it.
Excepts from Proofs of a conspiracy against all the religions and gouvernments of Europe, carried on in the secret meetings of Free Masons, Illuminati, and Reading Societies, by John Robison, Published by Cadell, 1798; Original from the Bavarian State Library
“German Masonry appeared a very serious concern, and to be implicated with other subjects with which I had never suspected it to have any connection. I saw it much connected with many occurrences and schisms in the Christian church; I saw that the Jesuits had several times interfered in it; and that most of the exceptionable innovations and dissentions had arisen about the time that the order of Loyola was suppressed; so that it should seem, that these intriguing brethren had attempted to maintain their influence by the help of Free Masonry.” (Proofs of a Conspiracy: Against all the Religions and Governments of Europe. By John Robison, p. 9)
“The Lodges in France naturally became the rendezvous of the adherents to their banished King, and the means of carrying on a correspondence with their friends in England. At this time also the Jesuits took a more active hand in Free Masonry than ever. They insinuated themselves into the English Lodges, where they were caressed by the Catholics, who panted after the re-establishment of their faith, and tolerated by the Protestant royalists, who thought no concession too great a compensation for their services. At this time changes were made in some of the masonic symbols, particularly in the tracing of the logdge, which bear evident marks of Jesuitical interference.” (Proofs of a Conspiracy: Against all the Religions and Governments of Europe. By John Robison, p. 17)
“I have met with many particular facts, which convince me that this use had been made of the meetings of Masons, and that at this time the Jesuits interfered considerably, insinuating themselves into the Lodges, and contributing to encrease that religious mysticism that is to be observed in all the ceremonies of the order. This society is well known to have put on every shape, and to have made use of every mean that could promote the power and influence of the order. And we know that at this time they were by no means without hopes of re-establishing the dominion of the Church of Rome in England. Their services were not scrupled at by the distressed Royalists, even such as were Protestants, while they were highly prized by the Sovereign. We also know that Charles II. was made a Mason, and frequented the Lodges.” (Proofs of a Conspiracy: Against all the Religions and Governments of Europe. By John Robison, p. 22)
“In all this progressive mummery [the Knights Templars] we see much of the hand of the Jesuits, and it would seem that it was encouraged by the church. But a thing happened which might easily have been foreseen. The Loges had become familiar with this kind of invention; the professed object of many real Orders of Knighthood was often very whimsical, or very refined and far-fectched, and it required all the finesse of the clergy to give it some slight connection with religion or morality.” (Proofs of a Conspiracy: Against all the Religions and Governments of Europe. By John Robison, p. 18)
“These cheats found it convenient to make Masonry one of their conditions, and by a small degree of art, persuaded their pupils that they were the only true Masons. These Rosycrucian Lodges were soon established, and became numerous, because their mysteries were addressed, both to the curiosity, the sensuality, and the avarice of men. They became a very formidable band, adopting the constitution of the Jesuits, dividing the Fraternity into circles, each under the management of its own superior, known to the president, but unknown to the individuals of the Lodges. These superiors were connected with each other in a way known only to themselves, and the whole was under one General. At least this is the account which they wish to be believed. If it be just, nothing but the absurdity of the ostensible motives of their occupations could have prevented this combination from carrying on schemes big with hazard to the peace of the world. But the Rosycrucian Lodges have always been considered by other Free Masons as bad Societies, and as gross schismatics. This did not hinder, however, their alchemical and medical secrets from being frequently introduced into the Lodges of simple Free Masonry; and in like manner, exorcism, or ghost-raising, magic, and other gross superstitions, were often held out in their meetings as attainable mysteries, which would be immense acquisitions to the Fraternity, without any necessity of admitting along with them the religious deliriums of the Rosycrucians.” (Proofs of a Conspiracy: Against all the Religions and Governments of Europe. By John Robison, p. 33)
Excepts from An encyclopaedia freemasonry and its kindred soienoes, by Albert G. Mackey, M.D., 33rd degree, Published by The Masonic History Company, New York and London, 1914; phoenixmasonry.org
“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.” (Jesuits)
