If Mithraism was developed for the House of Commagene, then the Kabbalistic elements of Merkabah found in it must have been introduced by the House of Herod. Herod Agri ppa also gave special favor to the Essenes. From Flavius Josephus, we leam :.

Among lhose spared from being foreed [lO lake a loyally oalh lOHerod] were lhose we call Essenes Il is wonh saying whal caused [Herod]LO honor the Essenes. There was a cenain Essene whose name was Manaemus Thi s man once saw Herod when lhe laller, slill a boy, was on the way LO hi s teacher's house, and addresse d him as 'King ofthe Jews.

But Manaemus smiled gently and tapped him wi th his hand on the rump, saying: 'But indeed you will be king and yo u will rule happily, for you have been foun d wonhy by God-". The aseent Ihrough the seven "palaees", or planels, of Merkabah mystieism seems to have been introdueed to the primitive mystery rites the heretieal Magi, forming the Roman Mysteries ofMithras, spread far and wide by the Roman soldiers, and through Mithraism, to the other schools ofHellenistic mysticism.

Ezekiel's vision held striking similarities to the Mithraic image of the Leontoeephalus, as well as to the Orphie Phanes. Aeeording lo Ihe Orphie Theogonies, Phanes, idenlifie d with Kronos, or Time, and equated with Satum, is deseribed as "a serpent hav ing heads growing upon him of a bull and a lion, and in the middle the faee of a god; and he has also wings upon his shoulders, and is called ageless Time, and Herakles the same.

Guthrie remarke d that, "the depieling of ageless Time himself in this form shows eorrespondenees with Oriental, and in particular with Persian religion, which are too detailed and exael lo be passed over. The Leontocephalus was depicted standing on a globe, on which there are two eireles interseeting eaeh other, the "wheel inside a wheel", whi eh Celsus explained, "is a symbol of the Iwo orbils in heaven, the one being Ihat of the fixed stars and the other that assigned to the planets.

Throu gh Ihe promolion and disseminalion of Ihe Mysleries of Milhras, Ihe House ofHerod seems lo hav e been invol ved in a plol lo sub vert Ihe emerging Chrislian movemenl, by altering ils doclrines lo conform wilh Iheir own Milhraic leachings, or Ihe dealh and resurrecli on oflhe dying-god. The power oflhe Pharisees was exercised Ihrough Ihe Sanhedrin, who also seemed lo have played an importanl role in Ihis plol. God commanded Moses lO "lay hands", a rile of ordinal ion known Semicha, on loshua.

The Greal Sanhedrin was an assembly of Ihe grealesl l ewish judges who consliluled Ihe supreme court and legislalive body of ancienl Israel. However, Ihe Sanhedrin losl mu ch of ils signifi cance when a powerful king was al Ihe helm. One of Ihe firsl acls of Ihe now all-powerful assembly was lo pass j udgmenl upon Herod Ihe Greal, accused of cruelly in his governmenl.

Therefore, when Herod evenlually eSlablished his power in lerusalem in 37 BC, forly-five ofhis former judges were pul lo dealh. According lo Ihe Calholic Encycl opedia, Ihough Herod allowed Sanhedrin lO conlinue, "Ihis new Sanhedrin, filled wilh his crealures, was henceforlh ulilized as a mere al his beck". Inlereslingly, a second and dislincl meaning of Semicha, pracliced by Ihe Sanhedrin, is Ihe. This involved pressing firmly on Ihe head of Ihe sacrifi cial animal, Ihereby symbolically "Iransmitting" sins onlo Ihe animal.

This was in keeping wilh Kabbali slie and Milhraie doclrines, perpelualed by Ihe House of Herod , whereby, human sacrifice was an ael pleasing 10 lheir god, and was believe 10 liberale lhe devolee from sin, lhal is, from obedienee 10 God. Joseph of Arimalhea lhen relrieved lhe body, and plaeed il in his own 10mb, an acl wilnessed by Mary Magdalene and "Ihe olher Mary". Then, according lo Ma11hew The nexl day, lhe chief priesls and lhe Pharisees wemlO Pilale. Otherwise, hi s disciples may come and sleal lhe body and le" lhe people lhat he has been ra ised from the dead.

This last deoeption will be worse than the fi rsl. By lhis lime, Joseph of Arimalhea would have already removed lhe body, and conspired wilh lhe lwo Marys 10 spread lhe message lhal Jesus had resurreeled from lhe dead. Those diseipl es menlioned in lhe Gospels as spreading lhis message were again lhe lwo Marys bul also Salome. She is also idenlified wilh Ihe adulterous woman he saved from Sloning by Ihe Pharisees. Bul if Mary Magdalene carne lo be idenlified wi lh harl olry, il is beeause of an esolerie inlerprelalion whieh regards her as a "sacred proslilule", who officiales al Ihe mysleries, or as goddess and consorl lO Ihe "son of god", as she is fealured in Ihe Gnostic lexlS.

There is sorne conlenlion as 10 lhe exael idenlily of Salome, who appears briefiy in Ihe canoni cal gospels, and who appears in more delail in apocryphal wrilings. However, one Salome was lhe slep-daughler of Herod A nlipas, and danced before Herod and her molher Herodias allhe occasion of Herod 's birthday, and by doing so caused lhe dealh of John lhe Baplis1. Aceording 10 Josephus' Jewish A nliquilies:. Herodias, [ J, was married 10 Herod, lhe son ofHerod lhe Gre al, who was bom ofMariamne, the daughter ofS imon the high priest, who had a daughter, Salome; afler whose birlh Herodias look upon her lO con found lhe laws of Our.

The purpose of this mi ssion would be that, contrary to Jesus would be inlerprele d as Ihe "Son of God", and believed lO have died and risen again. This would have been in accordance with the same mystery doctrines that had so plagued the orthodox tradition that Jesus was trying to uphold. To those initiates who could be duped into hi gher levels, however, they would be instructed ofthe real meaning ofthe interpretation, where Jesus was equated as Ihe enemy of Iheir "god", Lucifer, and beheved lo have been killed as a form of ri lual sacrifice.

This esoleric inlerpre lation came lO be known as Gnosticism, and became the basis through which the Western occult tradition subverted Christianity, and secretly inculcated the worship ofLucifer. The agent responsible for the formul ation and spread this Gnostic interpretation of Christianity, was Paul, the Thirteenth Apostle. Paul has otherwise been thought of as having been an ardent enemy ofthe Gnostic! Gnosticism is currently being popularized, by works like Brown's Da Vinci Code, and scholars like Elaine Pagels, as merely an alternative, and possibly purer, form of Christianity.

This notion has, however, been disproven by the most recent scholarship on Ihe sucject. Essenti ally, the diffusion of Merkabah ideas into Greek and Roman culture, resulted in the emergence of several mystical schools, namel y Neoplatonism, Hemeticism and Gnosticism.

Scholars have recogni zed the similarities in these systems, but have mistakenl y at! A more correcl way to perceive them is that they were merely branches of a single system. The core teachings were found in Merkabah, but were known outwardl y to the Roman world as Mithraism. The alchemical symbolism of Mithraism was found in Hermeticism, said to derive from a supposed ancient Egypti an sage known as Hermes Trismegistus.

When these ideas were melded to the emerging Christi an movement, they produced the heresy of Gnosticism. Despite numerous attempts to apologize for Gnosticism as being merely goddess worship, the Gnostics equated the goddess with Venus. In other words, Lucifer.

Gnosticsm was actually an adaptation ofthe Merkabah's perception of Lucifer, presented in the mystery terms as the worship of the dying-god. Gnostic doctrine articul ated the central rationalization for the the indulgence in evil which has become the basis of IlIuminati strategy. In order to worship evil, it is first necessary to elevate it to the level of a god, a notion which the Gnostics borrowed from the primitive dualism ofthe pagans.

According to doctrines of Gnosticism, from which the entire Western occult traditi on derives its source, the Bible is to be interpreted in reverse. Though he was a lesser god, in the pantheon of pagan gods, God sought to proclaim himself the sole godo Therefore, God, who created the world, is evil.

After having created humanity, he was oppressive in his insistence of rules of morality. Supposedly then, it is the devil , or Lucifer, identified with the dying- god, who "liberated" man by instructing him in the truth : the Kabbalah. The followers of Jesus had persisted in Jerusalem following the crucifixion, where they were known as the Early Church, or Nazarenes, and were headed by James , the "brother of the Lord".

In compliance with the mission of Jesus, as set out in Matthew, they were strict adherents of the Law. On the contrary, Paul imposed a mystical interpretation ofthe religion, whereby Jesus was equated with the dying-god of the mysteries, who was believed to ha ve died for the sins of mankind, and therefore, it was permitted not to follow the ancient Law. Thus, Paul's Gentile converts were permitted to reject circumcision. Paul seems to have been part of a conspiracy on the part ofthe House of Herod, to subvert the emerging Christian movement, by conforming it to their occult doctrines.

Paul was from Tarsus, the capitol city ofCilicia, the very hub of the intrigues that produced the Mithraic religion. In addition, according to Robert Eisenmen, in Paul as a Herodian, there is evidence, in the New Testament, early Church literature, Rabbinic literature, and Josephus, to suggest sorne connection between Paul and so-called "Herodians.

One thin g cannot be denied, Paul's Herodian connections make the manner of his sudden appearances and disappearances, his various miraeulous escapes, his early power in Jerusalem, his Roman eitizenship, his easy relations with kings and govemors, and the venue and terms of his primary mi ssionary activities comprehensible in a manner no other reconstruction even approaches.

Paul speaks in an unguarded momenl in Rom ofhis "kinsman Herodion. In particular, Paul 's repudialion of Ihe Law rejeeled Ihe neeessily of eireumeision for converts. This was an issue partieularly sensilive for Ihe Herodians, who were in Ihe praclice of forging various dynaslic alliances wilh non-Jews in Cilicia and Lower Armenia, including Commagene. Thus, explains Eisenmen, Paul arrives wilh funds galhered in overseas fund-rai sing from many oflhe areas inlo which Herodi ans h ave expanded and, in part because of Ihis, Ihose areas where circumcision had become such an issue because oflhe marilal praelices ofHerodian prineesses.

He noles,. The "Christian " communily in Antioch, where Chrislians were firSl called ChriSlians AClS 11 - a suilabl e locale for lhe crySlallizalion of lhis tenninology - comprises, even according to AClS' dubious hiSlorical reck oning, variou s persons of lhis "Rerodian " mix. Suspiciously, following an unsuecessful conspiracy among forty Jews lo assassinale Sainl Paul, Ihe Romans decided lo send him lo Felix in Caesarea. After Ihe dealh of Herod, Judea was once more added lo Ihe greal Roman province of Syria lo be presided over by governors. Five days laler, members oflhe Sanhedrin appeared, and made charges, which Paul denied.

Paul appeared and gave Ihe gospel lo Felix and Drusilla. Felix Irembled bul was. He wanted a bribe from Paul so did not acquit him. Felix kept Paul a prisoner in Caesarea, under loose house arrest, for two years until the arri val of Festus, the new governor. Eisenmen makes note that it is very unlikely that Paul could have made the miracul ous escapes without the support ofthe Herodians and their Roman sponsors. As in, for example, the attack on Paul in the Temple, and his rescue by Roman soldiers witnessing these events from the Fortress of Antonia.

Wilhoul Ihis kind of interve nti on, Paul could never have enj oyed the protecti on he does in Caesarea, and retired to Rome in such security. Eisenmen also points out that there is reference in Josephus about a member of Ihe Herodian family named "Saulus", which was nol a common name in the peri odo This Saulus plays a key role in events leading up to the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple.

J osephus also describes him as "a kinsman of Agrippa. Most importantly, it was the Valentini ans, chief among the earl y Gnostic groups, cl aimed to have received their doctrines from Theudas, a di sciple of Paul. Elaine Pagels points out :. The Valentinians, in panicular, allege that their secret tradi tion offers direct access lO P aul's own teaching of wisdorn and gnosis. According to Clernent "they say that Valentinus was a hearer of Theudas. As a result of Paul 's miss ion, Christianity grew among non-Jewish communities, referred to as Gentiles, which became increasingly separated from the teachings of the Nazarenes of Jerusalem.

Until, the Nazarene community were eventu all y treated as a deviant secl. Then, in response to what were perceived as growing heretical tendencies, the emerging orthodoxy stressed their version ofthe apostolic tradition, by focu sing on the gospels and letters ofPaul, whereby Jesus was equated with the dying-god ofthe mysteries, whose death and resurreetion were eelebrated every Easter.

Though Joseph ofArimathea had already prepared his own tomb, beeause he was "wailing for Ihe Kingdom ofGod", bul whieh he chose lo bury Jesus, he lives on for at least another thirty years, and supposedly, around the year 63 AD, he was said to have travelled to England. In the eighth eentury AD, Rabanus Maurus, Arehbishop of Mayenee, stated in the Life of Mary Magdalene that Joseph of Arimathea was sent to Britain, and he goes on to detail who traveled with him as far as Franee, claiming that he was aeeompanied by, in addition to Mary Magdalene and Lazarus, and again, Salome.

His descendants would eventu ally culminate in the person ofKing Arthur. The prominenee of Britain in this tale is a mark of its long-standing affili alion wilh Ihe praclice of Ihe occull. Scholars have in facl speeulaled Ihal, already al Ihe beginning of lhe firsl millennium Be, Ihe Phoenicians venlured as far as Britain to exploit the tin trade, connecting them to the religious traditions of the Near East.

The Britons traced their descent to Brutus, grandson of Ascanius, who in turn was supposedly descended from Zerah. In addition, aeeording to the aneient ehronicles of Ireland, the lineage of the Britons was supplemented in the sixth eentury BC, with the royal blood of the House of Dav id, resulting in the kings of Scotland.

Thus explaining why the name Scoti was applied by the Romans to Irish raiders, and later to the Irish invaders of Argyll and Caledonia, whieh beeame known as Seotl and. Seota and Nel had a son, Goidel Glas, the eponymous ancestor of the Gaels, who was expelled from Egypt shortl y aft er the Exodus of the Israelites by a pharaoh.

After mu ch traveling, his descendants settled in Hispania, also known as Iberia, or modern Spain and Portugal, wh ere Mil Espaine was born. It was the sons of Mil, Eber Finn and. Twelve years later, Jerusalem fell to Nebuchadnezzar, whereupon Zedekiah was taken to Babylon and blinded, and his sons were murdered, except for his daughter Tamar. Tamar, it is said, arri ved with an aged man named Oll am Fodhla, and hi s secrelary, one Simon Brug. These have been idenlified wilh Ihe prophel Jeremiah, his scribe Baru ch, who, along with the princes Tamar, eventually traveled to Sicily, Spain, possibl y even Norway and Denmark, and later, lreland.

Tamar marri ed one ofth e later lrish Kings, Eochaid l, from which all the High Kings of lreland descend. She and her compani ons brought with her a mysterious chest, supposedl y the A rk ofthe Covenant, and a golden-col ored banner, emblazoned with the heraldic device of a red Lion, and the Stone of Destiny4 Th e Stone of Destiny, or the Stone of the Covenant, became known as Lia Fai!. The Stone was install ed at the stronghold at the Hill ofTara, where it served as the p lace of coronation for all the earl y lrish kings.

Even after Patri ck had con verted the Irish to Chri stianity, the teachings ofth e Druids were never compl etel y abandoned, but instead a unique culture developed, known as Celti c Christianity. Essenti ally, the arts of the Druids survived earl y lri sh Christianity, as its abundant hagiography, steeped in magic al ideas, p lainl y shows.

Saint Columba, abbot and missionary traditionally credited with the main role in the conversion of Scotland to Christianity, aft er becoming a monk, lived and studied with a bard in Leinster, and later defended the cause ofthe Druids when their schools and teachings were attacked. The Stone of Desti ny and possibly other Jerusalem Temple artifacts were also rel ocated, where they remained under the care ofthe.

His mother was y gema del Acqs , the High Queen of the Celtic kingdoms. Their granddaughter, Pompeia, was the wife of Emperor Trajan, who was the grandfather of Marcus Aurelius. It was use of the dragon standard, or Draco, by these ancestors, Trajan and Marcus Aurelius, which according to Arrian, was of originally of Scythian origin, that carne to be adopted by the Pendragon family.

Her grandmother, therefore, would have been Gladys ofBritain, who was descended from King Coel of Britain, whose mother was descended from Anna, the daughter of Joseph of Arimathea, and Beli Mawr, and also from Tamar Tephi, through the kings of Ireland. Septimus Severus was the father of Caracalla, who succeeded him.

But, in 2 17 AD, emperor Caracalla, was killed and Macrinus ascended to the imperi al throne. His cousin, Julia Soaemi as Bassiana, the daughter of Julia Domna's sister, Julia Maesa, would not allow the usurper to stand unopposed. Together with her mother, Julia, she p lotted to substitute Macrinus with her son, Marcus Aurelius Antonius, who appropriated the name Elagabalus, the name of the dying-god worshipped by the pri est-kings of Emesa.

In 2 18 AD, Macrinus was killed and Elagabalus became emperor. The cult of Sollnvictus was harmoni zed with the cuIt ofMithras, with which it was so similar that the two are often confu sed. Elagabalus forced leading members of Rome's government to participate in religious rites celebrating Sol invictu s, which he personally ledo Their rule was not popular and soon discontent arose.

Elagabalus developed a reputation among his contemporaries for eccentricity, decadence, and zealotry. With the emperor's death in AD, his religion ceased, though succeeding emperors continued to be portrayed on coinage with the radiant sun-crown, for close lo a cenlury. The emperor Aurelian inlrod uced an offi cial reli gion of Sol lnvictus in AD, making the sun-god the premier divinity of the empire, and wearing hi s rayed crown himse1f. The worship of Sol lnvictus was continued by Constantine, who some think never converted to ChriSlianily.

Ralher, when Conslanline made Christianly Ihe official reli gion of Ihe Empire, he succeeded in fulfilling Ihe Herodian pl01 of subverling Ihe true Chri stian message, by instituting Paul 's version, known as Catholi cism, which assimil aled Jesus lO Ihe Gnoslic figure of Ihe dy ing-god. The whole southern portion of the island became a prosperous region of the Roman Empire. Unaided by the Roman army, Roman Britanni a could not long resist the tri bes from the area of modern Germany, called the "Anglo-Saxons", who arrived in Ihe fifth cenlury and sixlh cenluries AD.

The Saxons were again descended from the Scythians. Strabo asserts that the most ancient Greek historians knew the Sacaea as a people who lived bey ond Ihe Caspian Sea. Camden writes:. According to the y ngling Saga, written from historical sources available to the Icelander Snorri Sturluson, Odin carne from the land of Asgaard, which was on the northwestern coast of the Black Sea, at the basin ofthe Don Ri ver:.

In that city was a chief call ed Odin, and it was a great place for sacrifice. The apocryphal book of 2 Esdras records:. These are the Ten Tribes which were carried away captives out of their own land in the time of Oseas, the king, whom Salmanaser, the king of the Assyrians, look caplive and crossed them beyond the river; so were they brought into another land, but they took th is eounei l to themselves, that they would leave the multitude ofthe heathen and go forth onto a further eountry, where never man dwelt, that they mi ght keep the statutes, which they never kept in their own land.

He and his people were known as Ases, or Asir, and afler many battles, he lefl Iwo brolhers in charge of his domains, along a ridge of Ihe Caucasus Mounlains, called Asgaard, likely Chasgar, and wilh his people headed north. One-eyed, wilh a long while beard, he was a sorcerer who pracliced divinalion from aseveredhead, andcou ld change shape al will. Ancienlscholars idenlified him wilh Mercury, known lo Ihe Greeks as Hermes, anolher species of dying-god Ihal can be identified wilh Lucifer.

Odin was married lO Freya, the great-granddaughler of King Coe! It is she who was Ihoughl to have laughl her people witchcraft, and acted as a priesless of human sacrifices. While the branches stemming from the Mithraic bloodline would produce the leading families of Europe, they would receive another important infusion during the Crusades.

During the early Middle Ages, the Mithraic families intermarried with their brethren among the Saxons, and, most importantly, the descendants of Charlemagne, founder of the Holy Roman Empire. This combined lineage was again reconnected, during the Crusades, with the long- lost lineage of the Lost Tribes of Israel. These included the royal dynasty of Armenia, but also the branches of Eastern European aristocracies, of Poland, Bulgaria and Hungary, descended from the enigmatic Khazars of southern Russia.

Their emergence was marked by the advent of the lore of the Holy Grail, and their feared symbol was the skull and crossbones. The idea that the Scots carne from Scythia is found in mostlegendary accounts and also in unedited versions ofthe Venerable Bede. Therefore, these various peoples all descend from the Scylhian Iribes, who firsl appeared in Europe in Ihe sevenlh cenlury BC , when they crossed the Araxes River, the ancient name ofthe Aras River in Armenia, the area where the Israelites were last known before departing for Europe.

In the article in the November I issue of The American Journal of Human Genetics, Ariella Oppenheim, of the Hebrew University of Israel, wrote that her new study revealed that Jews have a closer genetic relationshi p to populations in the northern Mediterranean, including Kurds, Anatolian Turks, andArmenians, than to populations in the southern Mediterranean, like Arabs and Bedouins.

However, bolhArmenian and Georgian hislorians also record Ihal after Ihe deslrucli on of Ihe firsl Temple, Nebuchadnezzar transported numbers of Jewish captives, not only lo Babylon, bul also to Armenia and Ihe Caucasus. By the end of the fourth century BC, sorne Armenian cilies had large Jewish populations. II appears that sorne ofthese earliesl Jewish settlers later converted to Chrislianity.

According lo Josephus, Monobazus:. Iso the n. The child's name was lzates, and when he was older, a Jewish merchant named Ananias acquainted him with the religion of Judaism, with which he became deeply inleresled. His molher, Queen Helena, had bren previously won over lo Judaism without his knowing il.

Upon ascending Ihe throne, on the dealh of his falher, lzales discovered Ihe conversion of his mOlher, and he himself inlended lo convert lo Judaism, and even to aceepl eircumcision. He was, however, dissuaded from il by both his teaeher Ananias, and by his mother, but was ultimately persuaded thereto by anolher Jew, Eleazar. Izates was succeeded by hi s brolher, Monobazes 11, who, according to Jewish Iradilion, as recorded in Ihe Jewish Encyclopedia, was the son of Agrippa 11 and Helena. Their son was. Tiridates 11 ofArmenia married Soshandukht, from the Empire ofthe Kushans, in northwestern India, which was a stronghold ofthe Manichaeism, a religion that would feature prominently in the Eastern bloodlines, and which would, Ihrough Iheir inlermarriage wilh Ihe WeSl , go on lo infiuence Ihe Holy Grail.

Manichaeism was founded by an individual named Mani, born near Baghdad in AD, to a family rel ated to the Persian royal house. The Mughlasilah may have bren relaled lo lhe Mandaeans. The Mughtasilah, like the Mandaeans, wore white and performed baptisms.

Mandaeans do not recognize Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad, but acknowledge inslead John lhe Baplisl, whom lhey revere as one oflheir grealesl leachers. Scholars believelhey originaled in a Jewish-Gnoslic group fromJordan, who emigraled lo Babylonia in Ihe firsl or second cenlury AD, and among Ihose still in Iraq, are Gnostic books preserved daling from sevenlh or eighth century AD.

They dwelled in east Judea and northern Mesopotamia, from where the Mandaeans migrated to southern Mesopolamia, according 10 their legends. However, Mani prolesled againsl his upbringing, and around AD, he began 10 propagale his own leachings, and became renowned for his spirilual healing and exorcisms. His followers procl aimed him "Ihe new Jesus" and even credited him with a virgin birth.

Mani regarded Zoroasler, Buddha, and Jesus as his forerunners and declared lhat he, like lhem, had received essentiall y lhe same enlightenmenl from lhe same source. H is teachings were a fusion of Gnoslicism, wilh aspecls of Zoroaslrian and Milhraic lradilions, purporting lhallhe creator god was evil. According 10 the Kephalaia, Mani spent many years in attendance of Shapur, the Emperoroflhe Sassanid Empire, and many years preaching in Persia, Parthia and Adiabene' Shapur I was lhe second ruler ofthe Sassanian Empire of Persian, eslablished by his father, Ardashir, which replaced the Parthians.

Ardashir, lhe falher ofShapur, was a descendanlAnliochus 10fCommagene. Under Ihe leadership of Ardashir 1, Ihe Sassanids crealed an empire that was constantly changing in size as it reacled 10 Rome, to Byzanlium 10 the west, and 10 lhe Kushans of Afghanistan 10 lhe eas1. At the lime of Shapur 1, in the last half of lhe third century AD, the empire slretched. According to A lexander of Lycopolis, who wrote in the fourth century AD, Mani, as a member of court of Shapur 1, accompanied him on his campaigns ' Mani made excursions into the Kushan Empire, in what is today Pakistan and northwestern Indi a, when Shapur I extended his authority eastwards into the region, where the previously autonomous Kushans were obli ged to accept hi s suzerainty.

The Kushan Empire, which stretched from Tajikistan to the Caspian Sea to Afghanistan, and down into the Ganges river valley, became a stronghold of Mani's reIigion, and a base for missionary expeditions into Central Asia. Manichaeism spread with rapidly throughout both the east and west. Its most famous adherent was SI. Augustine, who was a Manichean before hi s conversion to Christianity. The Manichaean faith was also widel y persecuted. The faith maintained a sporadic and intermittent existence in west Mesopotamia, Africa, Spain, France, North Italy, the Balkans for a thousand years, and flourished for a time in the land of its birth, Persia.

But after only a year in power, Hormi zd died, and was in turn succeeded by another of Shapur 's sons, Bahram. Soon after his accession, Bahram caused Mani to be crucified, had the corpse flayed, his skin stuffed, and hung up at the city gate. Manicheanism was the source of an important Gnosti c heresy in Armenia, called Paulicianism, whose eventual spread into Europe signaled the birth of the IlIuminati conspiracy in that part of the world. This cult penetrated first into the Balkans, to infl uence the aristocratic families of Eastern Europe. These families derived their origin from the enigmatic Khazars, that Turkic peoples of southern Ru ssia, descendants of the Scythians, who con verted to Judaism in the eighth century AD.

They were thus an important link in the transference of the inheritance of the so-called Lost Tribes, and the A rmeni an influence, to Westem Europe. During the important era of the Crusades, it was their intermarri age with their counterparts among the Saxons, and another important faction of the Mithraic bl oodline, whose primary representative was Charlemagne, that. Bartholomew and SI. According lo a Manichean Sogdian lexl, a younger conlemporary of Mani, broughl Manichean beliefs 10Armeni a.

The secl emerged under Ihe dynasly of Ihe Mamikoni ans, a noble family which dominaled A rmenia, belween Ihe fourth and ei ghlh cenluries, whose heraldi c symbol was Ihe double-headed eagle. The brolhers, Mamik and Konak, foughl againsl Ihe Chinese emperor b ul lost. The Persian king, nol wanling lOkili Ihe brolhers, b ul also wanting lo avoid confli cl wilh Ihe Chinese, inslead senl Ihem wesl lo A rmenia, resulting in peace again belween China and Persia. They Paulicians believed in a dislinclion belween Ihe God who made and governs Ihe. Therefore, like all Gnostic sects before them, they thought all matter to be corrupto For the Paulicians, Christ was an angel sent into the world by their "God".

Jesus' real mother was not the Virgin Mary, but the heavenl y Jerusalem. This idea is deri ved from the Kabbalah, where the "Shekhina", or "beloved" in the Song of Solomon, is equated with the "eongregation ofIs rael". Jesus' work, they claimed, eonsisted only in his teaehing that to be1ieve in him saves men from judgment. Their enemies, therefore, acc used them constantl y of gross immorality, even at their prayer-meetings. Adherents of the Paulician sect fted, with the Armenian Paul at their lead, to Episparis, in theA rmenian district Phanaroea, the best part ofP ontus, aceording to Strabo.

But SOrne of the Paulicians, it would seem, found their way to the land of the Khazars, who were then warring against the Arabs in the same region. The Khazars were sometimes credited with A rmenian origino This is stated by the seventh-century A rmeni an bishop and hi storian Sebeos, and the fourteenth century A rab geographer Dimashqi. This instan ce would refer to the persecution metted out in A rmenia against the Paulicians.

Like the Armenians, the Khazars were identified with Gog and Magog. They were regarded as descendants of Japheth, Noah's third son, and eonneeted with the Torgom-Togarmah and Ashkenaz of the Old Testament. Lake Ascanius and the region Ascani a in A natoli a deri ve their names from this group. Like their Edomite aneestors, the Khazars were also red-heade d, and carne to be known as "Red Jews".

This is the hand gesture porpularized as Spock's Vulcan salute in Stark Trek. Sorne scholars maintain, however, that because of the destruction of Jerusalem 's temple and the una vailability of lineage records, there is now no way to establish who is a Levite reli abl y. Levites in Orthodox Judaism continue to have additional rights and obli gations compared to lay people, although these responsibilities have diminished with the destruction of the Temple. Orthodox Judaism maintains a belief in and hope for a restoration of a Third Temple in Jerusalem, and Kohanim are regarded as retaining their original sanctity, and sorne e1ements of their original roles and responsibilities, and hav ing a status of waiting in readiness for future service in a resto red Temple.

Sorne Orthodox Jews have founded schools to train priests and Lev ites in their respective roles. The Rl a l haplogroup is almost never found among Sephardic Levites, and may have been introduced into the Ashkenazi Levite lines by Slavs, or Khazars who converted to Judaism. I1's also found in Finland, and many R la 1people went westto Scotland and Scandinavia.

Twelve years later, Jerusalem fell to Nebuchadnezzar, whereupon Zedekiah was taken to Babylon and blinded, and his sons were murdered, except for his daughter Tamar. Tamar, it is said, arrived with an aged man named Ollam Fodhla, and his secretary, one Simon Brug. These have been identified with the prophet Jeremiah, his scribe Baruch, who, along with the princes Tamar, eventually traveled to Sicily, Spain, possibly even Norway and Denmark, and later, Ireland. She and her companions brought with her a mysterious chest, supposedly the Ark of the Covenant, and a golden-colored banner, emblazoned with the heraldic device of a red Lion, and the Stone of Destiny.

It is believed to be the original Pillar that Jacob dedicated to God after his all-night wrestling vigil with an angel. The Stone was installed at the stronghold at the Hill of Tara, where it served as the place of coronation for all the early Irish kings. As early as the first centuries AD, it was believed that the Celts learned the arts of the Magi through the students of Pythagoras.

Even after Patrick had converted the Irish to Christianity, the teachings of the Druids were never completely abandoned, but instead a unique culture developed, known as Celtic Christianity. Essentially, the arts of the Druids survived early Irish Christianity, as its abundant hagiography, steeped in magical ideas, plainly shows.

Saint Columba, abbot and missionary traditionally credited with the main role in the conversion of Scotland to Christianity, after becoming a monk, lived and studied with a bard in Leinster, and later defended the cause of the Druids when their schools and teachings were attacked. Columba, in AD. Their granddaughter, Pompeia, was the wife of Emperor Trajan, who was the grandfather of Marcus Aurelius.

It was use of the dragon standard, or Draco, by these ancestors, Trajan and Marcus Aurelius, which according to Arrian, was of originally of Scythian origin, that came to be adopted by the Pendragon family. Her grandmother, therefore, would have been Gladys of Britain, who was descended from King Coel of Britain, whose mother was descended from Anna, the daughter of Joseph of Arimathea, and Beli Mawr, and also from Tamar Tephi, through the kings of Ireland.

Iamblichus was the author of the most extensive surviving text pertaining to the Mysteries of Mithras, titled On the Cave of the Nymphs, in which he describes the symbolism of a grotto mentioned in Homer, in relation to the cave rituals of Mithraism. Iamblichus, a Syrian philosopher, who lived from to AD, sought to revive paganism by a return to its roots among the Babylonians and Egyptians, and the leading proponents of classical thought, like Pythagoras, Plato, Aristotle, and finally, in the mysteries.

It was he, along with his teacher Porphyry, who wrote biographies of Pythagoras, recounting his sojourn among the Magi. Septimus Severus was the father of Caracalla, who succeeded him. But, in AD, emperor Caracalla, was killed and Macrinus ascended to the imperial throne. Together with her mother, Julia, she plotted to substitute Macrinus with her son, Marcus Aurelius Antonius, who appropriated the name Elagabalus, the name of the dying-god worshipped by the priest-kings of Emesa.

In AD, Macrinus was killed and Elagabalus became emperor. The cult of Sol Invictus was harmonized with the cult of Mithras, with which it was so similar that the two are often confused. Their rule was not popular and soon discontent arose. Elagabalus developed a reputation among his contemporaries for eccentricity, decadence, and zealotry. The emperor Aurelian introduced an official religion of Sol Invictus in AD, making the sun-god the premier divinity of the empire, and wearing his rayed crown himself.

The worship of Sol Invictus was continued by Constantine, who some think never converted to Christianity. The whole southern portion of the island became a prosperous region of the Roman Empire. It was finally abandoned by the Romans, early in the fifth century AD, when the weakening Empire pulled back its legions to defend borders on the Continent. The Saxons were again descended from the Scythians. Strabo asserts that the most ancient Greek historians knew the Sacaea as a people who lived beyond the Caspian Sea.

Ptolemy finds the Saxons in a race of Scythians, called Sakai, who came from Media. Camden writes: The origin and etymology of the Saxons, like those of other nations, have been involved in fable Each of these writers adopts the opinion most agreeable to them; I mean not to controvert any of them, but that of the most learned Germans seems most probable and worthy to be embraced, which makes the Saxons descended from the Sacae, the most considerable people of Asia, and to be so called quasi Sacasones, q.

According to the Yngling Saga, written from historical sources available to the Icelander Snorri Sturluson, Odin came from the land of Asgaard, which was on the northwestern coast of the Black Sea, at the basin of the Don River: On the south side of the mountains which lie outside of all inhabited lands runs a river through Swithiod, which is properly called by the name of Tanais [Don River], but was formerly called Tanaquisl, or Vanaquisl, and which falls into the Black Sea. The country of the people on the Vanaquisl was called Vanaland, or Vanaheim; and the river separate the three parts of the world, of which the easternmost part is called Asia, and the westernmost Europe The country east of the Tanaquisl in Asia was called Asaland, or Asaheim, and the chief city in that land was called Asgaard.

In that city was a chief called Odin, and it was a great place for sacrifice. And they entered in at the narrow passages of the river Euphrates, for the most High then showed them signs and stayed the springs of the flood till they were passed over; for through the country there was great journey, even of a year and a half, and the same region is called Arsareth.

The Prose Eddas and the Heimskringla, also from Snorri Sturluson, recount that the ancestors of the Norse kings resided east of the river Don, and were led by Odin, or Uldin, who had vast holdings south of the Ural Mountains. He and his people were known as Ases, or Asir, and after many battles, he left two brothers in charge of his domains, along a ridge of the Caucasus Mountains, called Asgaard, likely Chasgar, and with his people headed north. One-eyed, with a long white beard, he was a sorcerer who practiced divination from a severed head, and could change shape at will.

Ancient scholars identified him with Mercury, known to the Greeks as Hermes, another species of dying-god that can be identified with Lucifer. Odin was married to Freya, the great-granddaughter of King Coel, whose grandfather, Aviragus, King of the Britons, married Genuissa, another daughter of Emperor Claudius.

It is she who was thought to have taught her people witchcraft, and acted as a priestess of human sacrifices. During the early Middle Ages, the Mithraic families intermarried with their brethren among the Saxons, and, most importantly, the descendants of Charlemagne, founder of the Holy Roman Empire. This combined lineage was again reconnected, during the Crusades, with the longlost lineage of the Lost Tribes of Israel.

These included the royal dynasty of Armenia, but also the branches of Eastern European aristocracies, of Poland, Bulgaria and Hungary, descended from the enigmatic Khazars of southern Russia. Their emergence was marked by the advent of the lore of the Holy Grail, and their feared symbol was the skull and crossbones. The idea that the Scots came from Scythia is found in most legendary accounts and also in unedited versions of the Venerable Bede.

Therefore, these various peoples all descend from the Scythian tribes, who first appeared in Europe in the seventh century BC, when they crossed the Araxes River, the ancient name of the Aras River in Armenia, the area where the Israelites were last known before departing for Europe. In the article in the November issue of The American Journal of Human Genetics, Ariella Oppenheim, of the Hebrew University of Israel, wrote that her new study revealed that Jews have a closer genetic relationship to populations in the northern Mediterranean, including Kurds, Anatolian Turks, and Armenians, than to populations in the southern Mediterranean, like Arabs and Bedouins.

However, both Armenian and Georgian historians also record that after the destruction of the first Temple, Nebuchadnezzar transported numbers of Jewish captives, not only to Babylon, but also to Armenia and the Caucasus. By the end of the fourth century BC, some Armenian cities had large Jewish populations. It appears that some of these earliest Jewish settlers later converted to Christianity. According to Josephus, Monobazus His mother, Queen Helena, had been previously won over to Judaism without his knowing it.

Upon ascending the throne, on the death of his father, Izates discovered the conversion of his mother, and he himself intended to convert to Judaism, and even to accept circumcision. He was, however, dissuaded from it by both his teacher Ananias, and by his mother, but was ultimately persuaded thereto by another Jew, Eleazar. Manichaeism Tiridates II of Armenia married Soshandukht, from the Empire of the Kushans, in northwestern India, which was a stronghold of the Manichaeism, a religion that would feature prominently in the Eastern bloodlines, and which would, through their intermarriage with the West, go on to influence the Holy Grail.

Manichaeism was founded by an individual named Mani, born near Baghdad in AD, to a family related to the Persian royal house. The Mughtasilah may have been related to the Mandaeans. The Mughtasilah, like the Mandaeans, wore white and performed baptisms. Mandaeans do not recognize Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad, but acknowledge instead John the Baptist, whom they revere as one of their greatest teachers. Scholars believe they originated in a Jewish-Gnostic group from Jordan, who emigrated to Babylonia in the first or second century AD, and among those still in Iraq, are Gnostic books preserved dating from seventh or eighth century AD.

They dwelled in east Judea and northern Mesopotamia, from where the Mandaeans migrated to southern Mesopotamia, according to their legends. However, Mani protested against his upbringing, and around AD, he began to propagate his own teachings, and became renowned for his spiritual healing and exorcisms. Mani regarded Zoroaster, Buddha, and Jesus as his forerunners and declared that he, like them, had received essentially the same enlightenment from the same source.

His teachings were a fusion of Gnosticism, with aspects of Zoroastrian and Mithraic traditions, purporting that the creator god was evil. According to the Kephalaia, Mani spent many years in attendance of Shapur, the Emperor of the Sassanid Empire, and many years preaching in Persia, Parthia and Adiabene. Ardashir, the father of Shapur, was a descendant Antiochus I of Commagene. Under the leadership of Ardashir I, the Sassanids created an empire that was constantly changing in size as it reacted to Rome, to Byzantium to the west, and to the Kushans of Afghanistan to the east.

At the time of Shapur I, in the last half of the third century AD, the empire stretched 51 Terrorism and the Illuminati from Georgia in the north, to Oman in Arabia in the south, to the Indus river in the east, and to the upper Tigris and Euphrates river valleys in the west. According to Alexander of Lycopolis, who wrote in the fourth century AD, Mani, as a member of court of Shapur I, accompanied him on his campaigns.

Manichaeism spread with rapidly throughout both the east and west. Its most famous adherent was St. Augustine, who was a Manichean before his conversion to Christianity. The Manichaean faith was also widely persecuted. The faith maintained a sporadic and intermittent existence in west Mesopotamia, Africa, Spain, France, North Italy, the Balkans for a thousand years, and flourished for a time in the land of its birth, Persia. Soon after his accession, Bahram caused Mani to be crucified, had the corpse flayed, his skin stuffed, and hung up at the city gate.

This cult penetrated first into the Balkans, to influence the aristocratic families of Eastern Europe. These families derived their origin from the enigmatic Khazars, that Turkic peoples of southern Russia, descendants of the Scythians, who converted to Judaism in the eighth century AD. They were thus an important link in the transference of the inheritance of the so-called Lost Tribes, and the Armenian influence, to Western Europe.

During the important era of the Crusades, it was their intermarriage with their counterparts among the Saxons, and another important faction of the Mithraic bloodline, whose primary representative was Charlemagne, that 52 The Ashkenazi they transmitted Paulician influence to southern France. As Catharism, this creed would become the secret Gnostic doctrine of that family, identified collectively by the symbolism of the Holy Grail, or known as the Order of the Rose, and being the hidden power behind the vairous pernicious organizations, beginning with the Knights Templar, leading to the Rosicrucians, Freemasons, and finally the Illuminati.

The earliest accounts of the introduction of Christianity into Armenia date from the first century AD, when it was first preached by two Apostles of Jesus, St. Bartholomew and St.

According to a Manichean Sogdian text, a younger contemporary of Mani, brought Manichean beliefs to Armenia. The sect emerged under the dynasty of the Mamikonians, a noble family which dominated Armenia, between the fourth and eighth centuries, whose heraldic symbol was the double-headed eagle. The brothers, Mamik and Konak, fought against the Chinese emperor but lost. They fled to the land of the Kushans, then under the influence of Manichaeism, and sought the refuge of the Persian king, which would have been Shapur.

The Chinese emperor demanded the rebels be returned to China, or Persia would face war with the Chinese. The Persian king, not wanting to kill the brothers, but also wanting to avoid conflict with the Chinese, instead sent them west to Armenia, resulting in peace again between China and Persia. In the ninth century AD, Photius related that it was a certain Manichee woman, named Kallinike, who sent her two sons Paul and John to Armenia, to propagate this heresy.

Therefore, like all Gnostic sects before them, they thought all matter to be corrupt. Their enemies, therefore, accused them constantly of gross immorality, even at their prayer-meetings. But some of the Paulicians, it would seem, found their way to the land of the Khazars, who were then warring against the Arabs in the same region.

The Khazars were sometimes credited with Armenian origin. This is stated by the seventh-century Armenian bishop and historian Sebeos, and the fourteenth century Arab geographer Dimashqi. This instance would refer to the persecution metted out in Armenia against the Paulicians.

Like the Armenians, the Khazars were identified with Gog and Magog. Lake Ascanius and the region Ascania in Anatolia derive their names from this group. Red, as distinguished from blond, hair is found in a certain percentage of East European Jews, and this, as well as the more generalized light coloring, could be a heritage of the medieval Khazar infusion.

According to Eldad ha-Dani, a Jewish traveller of the ninth century, the Khazars were remnants of Simeon and Manasseh. The tribe of Zebulon, on the other hand, he explained, occupies the land extending from the province of Armenia to the River Euphrates. Likewise, one version of the Letter of King Joseph, also known as the Khazar Correspondence, reported that the Khazars had a tradition that they were descended from the Tribe of Simeon. According to the Schechter Letter, after the Jews from Armenia and Persia had eventually assimilated almost totally with the nomadic Khazars, a strong war-leader arose, named Bulan, who succeeded in having himself named ruler of the Khazars.

Sabriel, who happened to be remotely descended from the early Jewish settlers, and his wife Serakh, convinced him to adopt Judaism, in which his people followed him. Studies of mitochondrial DNA have demonstrated that Ashkenazi Jewish communities in Europe were composed mostly through intermarriage of Jewish men with women of European descent.

The reason is that Radhanites, Persian Jewish merchants, had migrated to Poland or Germany or France, since the fifth century AD, where they mostly married into those communities for hundreds of years. The Proceedings of the National Academy of Science report, appears to bear out that Ashkenazi Jews must have arrived in Eastern Europe, not from the west and southwest, but from the south and east, that is, via northern Italy and the Balkans, Asia Minor and the Greek Byzantine empire, the Volga kingdom of the Khazars, or a combination of all three.

Q is considered by researcher Doron Behar to constitute a minor 55 Terrorism and the Illuminati founding lineage among Jewish populations. Approximately five to ten percent of Ashkenazi Jews today are in this haplogroup, which originated in Central Asia. It is an extremely rare haplogroup in both Europe and the Middle East, found only Scandinavia, and the few countries that Khazars were known to have migrated to, like Poland, Hungary and Lithuania. The Levites are particularly interesting because, among them, it is the Cohens, or Kohamin, for whom the office of priest has traditionally been reserved.

Levitical status is generally determined by oral tradition, passed from father to son, with children being Levites if their father and grandfather was. Until the eighteenth century in Europe, many Cohens could accurately trace their lineage back to a verifiable Kohamin such as Ezra. Today, families may verify their priestly lineage via the tombstones of deceased ancestors, as the universal symbol of the hands arranged for the Priestly Blessing. Levites in Orthodox Judaism continue to have additional rights and obligations compared to lay people, although these responsibilities have diminished with the destruction of the Temple.

Orthodox Judaism maintains a belief in and hope for a restoration of a Third Temple in Jerusalem, and Kohanim are regarded as retaining their original sanctity, and some elements of their original roles and responsibilities, and having a status of waiting in readiness for future service in a restored Temple. Some Orthodox Jews have founded schools to train priests and Levites in their respective roles. The R1a1 haplogroup is almost never found among Sephardic Levites, and may have been introduced into the Ashkenazi Levite lines by Slavs, or Khazars who converted to Judaism. Interestingly, the R1a1 was introduced only years ago into only the Ashkenazi Levite male population.

The irony, of course, is the R1a1 Kurgans who are the founders of this haplogroup are considered the epitome of Indo-Europeanism. The homeland of the Indo-Europeans is the steppes north of the Black Sea, right where the Khazarian Empire was located. But the problem is that not only were Khazars most likely significantly R1a in their ancestry, but most Eastern Europeans are also R1a. The foreign genetic signature found among Levites occurs on the male or Y chromosome and comes from a few men, or perhaps a single ancestor, who lived about 1, years ago, just as the Ashkenazim were beginning 56 The Ashkenazi to be established in Europe.

It has been proposed that the ancestor who introduced it into the Ashkenazi Levites could perhaps have been from the Khazars. Ultimately, it was through the infiltration of Armenian Jews that the double-headed eagle of the Mamikonians became their heraldic symbol the Khazars. It also represents the sacred royal imperial power, in Hebrew Malchut Ha-Shmayim, since more than three thousand years, and is the heraldic symbol of the two merged royal clans, in Hebrew Ha-Shechina, and Turkic Ashina. However, a mounted force Viking force, known as the Kievan Rus, lead by prince Svyatoslav, in a treacherous collaboration with Byzantium, succeeded in penetrating the Khazarian empire, and destroying their capital Itil in AD.

Svyatoslav was the great-grandson of Halfdan Frodason King of Denmark, in turn descended from Odin, and whose mother was Hilda of the Vandals. At the end of the ninth century AD, the Khanagate of the Khazars had appointed a man named Arpad, to be the leader of the kingdom of Hungary, formed by seven Magyar and three Khazar tribes under his leadership.

Its eastern border stretches from the northern region to the Black Sea. Behind it runs the Don river with its enormous marshlands, where there are enough martens not just to lavishly clothe the noblemen and the lower ranking people, but also the herdsmen, swineherdsmen, and shepherds. The land is rich in gold and silver, and its rivers offer pearls and semi-precious stones. The dimensions of the Scythian land are extremely 57 Terrorism and the Illuminati large. The people inhabiting it are still customarily called Don-Hungarians; they have never been under the yoke of any ruler.

The Scythians are, namely, an ancient nation which has power over the east. In the year AD, it continues, Ogyek, the commander of Scythia and also descendant of Magog, decided to marry a woman named Emesh. During her pregnancy, Emesh saw a supernatural vision, in the shape of a turul, which landed on her body and made her pregnant.

The Turul, like the Turkic Toghrul of the Khazars, is a giant mythical eagle, a messenger of god in Hungarian mythology, who sits on top of the tree of life, along with the other spirits of unborn children in the form birds. Turul is often replaced by the sun in illustrations of the tree of life. According to an early Greek document, Arpad and the Magyar clan was Manichean in religion.

Although still a pagan, when he became ruler, an alliance was concluded between the Holy Roman Empire and Byzantium in AD, forced Geza to convert to Christianity, to secure a lasting peace for Hungary. Although Geza was baptized in AD, it is doubtful his conversion was sincere, for according to the Bishop of Merseburg, he continued to worship pagan gods. The Da Vinci Code of Dan Brown has recently popularized the legend of that the Merovingians, the most important of the Illuminati bloodlines, was derived originally from the union of Jesus and Mary Magdalene.

The likelihood of this possibility is nil, as the core doctrines of this lineage are based on the Luciferian teachings of Gnosticism. Rather, the myth of the union of Jesus and Mary Magdalene was preserved to disguise a more occult secret about the origin of this bloodline. More importantly, the descendants of the Merovingians eventually intermarried with the family of Charlemagne, founder of the Holy Roman Empire, and supposedly, that of an Exilarch, or claimant to the Davidic throne, named Rabbi Makhir.

It is from this lineage that all the leading lines of European aristocracy descend, a bloodline featured as the central secret of Grail lore. The Merovingians, again, came originally from Scythia, where they were known as the Sicambrians, taking their name from Cambra, a tribal queen of about BC.

Then, in the early fifth century AD, the invasion of the Huns provoked large-scale migrations of almost all European tribes. It was at this time that the Sicambrians, a tribe of the Germanic people collectively known as the Franks, crossed the Rhine and moved into Gaul, establishing themselves in what is now Belgium and northern France. The Merovingians are believed in occult circles to have originally been Jewish, and descended from the Tribe of Benjamin, who had entered Greece known as Cadmus and Danaaus.

Fredegar, who died in AD, was a Burgundian scribe, and his Chronicle covered the period from the earliest days of the Hebrew patriarchs to the era of the Merovingian kings. The city of Paris, established by the sixth century Merovingians, likewise bears the name of Paris, the son of King Priam of Troy, whose liaison with Helen of Sparta sparked the Trojan War.

The claim, asserted in The Da Vinci Code, is that Mary Magdalene had brought to southern France a child she bore to Jesus, and that her lineage was survived among the Merovingians. Gaul was the richest and largest area of the western empire, but the Frankish tribes had not succeeded in organizing a single state, until Clovis defeated the surviving Roman forces in AD.

During his reign and that of his sons, Frankish power was extended over nearly all of Gaul and far into Germany. The Frankish kingdom eventually became the strongest and most extensive of the new German states, and it was the only one that truly survived into later centuries, and from it were descended the modern states of both Germany and France. Charlemagne Clovis converted to Roman Christianity, and an accord was ratified between him and the Roman Church, followed by a great wave of conversion.

Pepin was followed by Charles Martel, one of the most heroic figures in French history, and who was the grandfather of Charlemagne, according whose name the dynasty came to be known in history as that of the Carolingians. The Carolingians were partly of Merovingian descent, but more importantly, they represented the union of the once divided lineage of the Mithraic bloodline. This lineage had survived in two branches. Julia, the heiress of the Edomite royal bloodline, was the daughter of Herod Phollio King of Chalcis, whose grandfather was Herod the Great, and whose mother was the daughter of Salome, married Tigranes King of Armenia, the son of Alexander of Judea.

From them was descended St. Arnulf, a Frankish noble who had great influence in the Merovingian kingdoms as Bishop of Metz, and who was later canonized as a saint, and who lived from to AD. Arnulf, this lineage was united with the other branch. That other branch was survived in the priest-pings of Emesa, descended from Claudia, the grand-daughter of the Emperor Claudius, which had also culminated in the person of the Neoplatonic philosopher Iamblichus. Charlemagne received substantial help from an alliance with the Pope, who wanted to cut the remaining ties with the Byzantine Empire.

In this way, the domains of the Pope became an independent state in central Italy. In the same year, AD, Charlemagne was crowned Emperor by the Pope, becoming the first emperor in the west, since the last Roman emperor was deposed in AD, and thus inaugurating the Holy Roman Empire. This was the important union, infusing European aristocracy with Davidic lineage, by which occult societies, and books like the Holy Blood Holy Grail, have claimed represented the secret of the Holy Grail. It is also the reason for which one of the stated aims of the Illuminati, like the enigmatic Priory of Zion, mentioned in The Da Vinci Code, is to reinstitute the descendants of Merovingians, as rulers of a New World Order.

The origin of the office of Exilarch is not known, but the princely post was hereditary in a family that traced its descent from the royal House of David. It was recognized by the state and carried with it certain definite prerogatives, first under the Parthian Empire of the Persians. The office lasted to the sixth century AD, under different regimes, when there was no Exilarch for a century, until the position was restored under the Muslims.

According to the appendix of a fourteenth century work titled Sepher ha Kabbalah: Then King Charles sent to the King of Baghdad [Caliph] requesting that he dispatch one of his Jews of the seed of royalty of the House of David. He hearkened and sent him one from there, a magnate and sage, Rabbi Makhir by name. And [Charles] settled him in Narbonne, the capital city, and planted him there, and gave him a great possession there at the time he captured it from the Ishmaelites [Arabs].

The Prince Makhir became chieftain there. He and his descendants were close [inter-related] with the King and all his descendants. There are numerous confusing genealogies provided as to the descent of this Makhir, or Natronai. Their sons were Makhir and Gilbert of Rouergue.

Makhir married Alda, the daughter of Charles Martel. In the Mediaeval, romances Theirry is called Aymery, and he was the father of Guillaume de Gellone, about whom there were at least six major epic poems composed before the era of the crusades. The device of his shield was the Lion of Judah.

At the height of his power, he included as part of his dominion, northeastern Spain, the Pyrenees, along with the region of Septimania. Because, as we will discover, this careful intermarrying constructed lines of descent to produce specific individuals who would play pivotal roles in this occult history we are following. A look at the numerous dynastic alliances between this Guillaume de Gellone, and the descendants of Charlemagne, will illustrate the degree of penetration of his lineage, and demonstrate the basis for his perceived 63 Terrorism and the Illuminati importance in occult circles.

Their descendants, known as the Guilhemids, would form an important nexus, through intermarriage, with their Saxon and Scandinavian relations, as well as the aristocracy of Eastern Europe, descended from the Khazars, and the royal family of Armenia, that would figure centrally in the occult conspiracy that was brought to birth during the Crusades. Their subsequent subversive activities would alter the history of Europe, and provide an occult influence that would remain a hidden, though powerful influence, until they finally came to light as the Illuminati in the eighteenth century.

Charles Constantine was the father of Constance of Arles and Vienna, who married Boso of Provence, the great-grandson of Bernard Plantevelue, himself the grandson of Guillaume de Gellone. Their son was William Taillefer Count of Toulouse. Their descendants would become the dynasty of Capetians, from whom would descend all the kings of France until the Second Republic established in Gerbert was reputed to have studied Kabbalistic arts in Spain, and to have been a sorcerer in league with the devil. Gerbert was supposed to have built a bronze head, that would answer his questions. He was also reputed to have had a pact with a female demon called Meridiana, who had appeared after he had been rejected by his earthly love, and with whose help he managed to ascend to the papal throne.

The Bogomils Finally, when these various bloodlines reconnected with their counterparts in the east, they became introduced to the Paulicianism, whose influence produced the heresy of the Cathars, that was adopted by the Guilhemids, and ultimately figuring in the lore of their secret bloodline, the Grail legends. There was one union in particular, which set off the beginning of this relationship, and from which would derive the most important line of descent, and which would later figure at the center of the various covert activities of the early predecessors of the Illuminati.

In AD, a Jewish merchant named Ibrahim ibn Jakub noted that the Jews of Prague, the capital of Bohemia, were important persons and active 66 The Merovingians in both local and long-distant trade. According to the Letter of King Joseph, Hasdai ibn Shaprut, who was foreign minister to Abd al-Rahman, Sultan of Cordova, made first unsuccessful attempt to resort to the Byzantine embassy to transmit his letter to the king of the Khazars.

But, the envoys of Boleslav I, who were then in Cordova, and among whom were two Jews, Saul and Joseph, suggested a different plan. They offered to send the letter to Jews living in Hungary, who, in their turn, would transmit it to Russia, and from there through Bulgaria, to its destination at Itl. As the envoys guaranteed the delivery of the message, Hasdai accepted the proposal.

The Khazars forced some of the Bulgars to move to the upper Volga River region where the independent state of Volga Bulgaria was founded, while other Bulgars fled to modern-day Bulgaria. Moses of Chorene, who wrote a History of Armenia at the request of Isaac Bagratuni, the middle of the fifth century AD, stated that King Hracheye joined Nebuchadnezzar in his first campaign against the Jews, and took part in the siege of Jerusalem.

From among the captives he selected the distinguished Jewish chief Shambat, and brought him with his family to Armenia. In AD, the Byzantine emperor John Tzimisces, himself of Armenian origin, transplanted as many as , Armenian Paulicians to Europe, and settled them in the Balkans, which then became the centre for the spread of their doctrines.

Settled there as a kind of bulwark against the invading Bulgarians, but the Armenians, instead, converted them to their religion, eventually evolving into what is known as Bogomilism. To Satanael, who sat on the right hand of God, belonged the right of governing the celestial world, 67 Terrorism and the Illuminati but, filled with pride, he rebelled against his Father and fell from Heaven. Then, aided by the companions of his fall, he created the visible world, the image of the celestial, having like the other its Sun, Moon, and stars, and last he created man and the serpent which became his minister.

Later Christ came to earth in order to show men the way to heaven, but His death was ineffectual, for even by descending into Hell he could not defeat the power of Satanael. The belief in the impotence of Christ and the need therefore to appease Satan, led to the doctrine that Satan should be worshipped. Within a short period of time Bogomilism had grown into a large-scale popular movement. The Byzantine Empire was unable to eradicate the heresy, and David, Moses, Aaron and Samuil, began a rebellion in to defend Bogomilism against its enemies, resulting in breaking Macedonia away from the Bulgarian Empire, establishing the first Slavic-Macedonian state.

After their considerable territorial conquests Samuil was proclaimed Emperor and was crowned by the Pope of Rome. The impetus behind this great expansion of the Arabs, that led to the collapse of the Persian Empire, and seizure of much of the territories of the former Roman Empire, was the religion of Islam, revealed to Mohammed in the seventh century AD. Essentially, Islam did not claim to be a new religion, but to be a reaffirmation of the timeless message sent to mankind since the beginning of time, including the prophets of the Bible, and Jesus.

However, in time, Islam too was subverted through the same pernicious occult influences that were infecting Europe, from a community in Harran, in southeastern Turkey, known as the Sabians. It was through their influence that there emerged the most notorious of radical Islamic groups, known as the Assassins, who, through contact with the famous Knights Templars during the Crusades, would be resonsible for transmitting the occult tradition to the West.

Resulting in first the lore of the Holy Grail, the legend of this contact would also form the basis of Scottish Rite Freemasonry. Finally, the theme would form the rational for the continued relationship between the Masons and their counterparts in the East, who would claim descent from the Assassins, known as the Muslim Brotherhood. The Sabians were related to the Mughtasilah, of which Mani had originally been a member.

By transmitting its ancient Gnostic and occult lore the Islamic world, the cult would contribute to the emergence of Ismailism, particularly that faction centered in Egypt, with which the occult organizations of the West would have a long lasting relationship, and which in the twentieth century, would produce Islamic terrorism. Scholars believe the Mandeans originated in a Jewish-Gnostic group from Jordan, who emigrated to Babylonia in the first or second century AD.
