Illuminati history–from the Bavarian roots of the secret society with Adam Weishaupt, to the mixing with the Freemasons and connections to the revolutions in France and America are explored with Josef Wages. Symbols of the illuminati and freemasons, and how much of the modern pop culture fixation on the Illuminati is misguided, plus the connection to Bohemian Grove are looked at as we go beyond ritual to the philosophy at the heart of the world’s most famous secret society on Buzzsaw, hosted by Sean Stone.
Josef Wäges is a 32° Freemason, member of Plano Lodge #768, the Dallas Valley of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry (Southern Jurisdiction), fellow of the Grand College of Rites, member of the Texas Lodge of Research and life member of the Missouri Lodge of Research. He is editor of The Secret School of Wisdom – The Authentic Rituals and Doctrines of the Illuminati, and is currently preparing the forthcoming book The Columbian Illuminati.
