On the 6th February 1748, Adam Weishaupt was born, the son of George Weishaupt, a rabbi in Ingolstadt, Bavaria. In 1753, his father died, and his tutelage was taken over by his grandfather and godfather; Johann Adam Freiherr von Ickstatt.
Adam Weishaupt’s early years, following the regime of the Jewish faith, were abandoned after his father’s death in 1753.
At the age of seven, Weishaupt’s education commenced at a Jesuit school, then onto the University of Ingolstadt, where he studied law, economics, politics, history and the occult. In 1768, became a professor of law and in 1773 a professor in cannon law, following Pope Clement XIV suppression of the Society of Jesus (Jesuit Order).
Over the next few years, travelled through France, and on the 1st May 1776, founded the Illuminati and was initiated into the Order of Freemasons in Munich 1777.
His mission for the order was the abolition of all monarchical governments and state religions across Europe.
On the 22nd June 1784, documents written by Adam Weishaupt were discovered at his home. They detailed the control of Masons and the overthrow of European Monarchies, and an end to the Catholic Church.
The authorities ordered the arrest and prosecution of all Freemasons and Illuminati members.
The Duke of Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg, a member of the Freemasons and Illuminati, assisted Adam Weishaupt and his family escape prosecution. He lived the remainder of his life in Gotha, under the protection of the Duke until his death on the 18th November 1830. He renounced the Catholic faith, right up to his death.
According to the writings of Weishaupt, he was not opposed to religion, just the way it was imposed and practiced. He wanted to create a state of liberty and moral equality, free from obstacles, which are continually thrown in our way.
His lasting contribution, secret societies which linger behind the scenes, pulling the levers of power.
The Illuminati seek a “One-World-Government.”
