Reviewing the historical context, some say the Illuminati and the Jesuits were one and the same. Others say they were opponents, each with their own plan to dominate the world.
There are various theories about numerous secret societies. Some are better supported by source materials than others. Until those societies give up their secrets the public at large is left to theorise based on the best information available.
In this article, we aren’t attempting to promote any particular theory but rather summarising two perspectives, of possibly many, relating to a time in history when the Illuminati began. A time when the Illuminati were inextricably linked with Freemasons, Rosicrucians and Jesuits whatever the perspective.
The two sources we are using are articles, both written by authors of books, which have different perspectives on the relationship between the Illuminati and Jesuits during the 18th century:
- An Introduction to the Jesuit Order of Rome. A 2013 article published by Quantum Prophecies and written by Benjamin Nehemiah, author of ‘Babylon Resurrected’.
- Illuminati Conspiracy Part Two: Sniffing out Jesuits. A 2015 article published by Conspiracy Archive and written by Terry Melanson, author of ‘Perfectibilists: The 18th Century Bavarian Order of the Illuminati’.
