The Initiation of the Jesuits

by Quinton on November 24th, 2009

To show the further similarity of the Jesuit-Judaic-
Masonic-Gnostic-Brahmin-Illuminati theology we now
quote from a MS. in the library of the Rue Richelieu
at Paris entitled Histoire des congregations et socialites
jésuitiques depuis 1563 jusqu'au temps présent (1709). 5

" Initiation. — From this, as well as other works,
we gather some of the ceremonies with which aspirants
were initiated into the Order. Having in nearly all
Roman Catholic countries succeeded in becoming the
educators of the young, they were able to mould the
youthful mind according to their secret aims. If then,
after a number of years, they detected in the pupil
a blind and fanatic faith, conjoined with exalted pietism
and indomitable courage, they proceeded to initiate
him; in the opposite case, they excluded him. The
proofs lasted twenty-four hours, for which the candidate
was prepared by long and severe fasting, which, by
prostrating his bodily strength, inflamed his fancy,
and, just before the trial, a powerful drink was administered
to him. Then the mystic scene began — diabolical
apparitions, evocation of the dead, representations
of the flames of hell, skeletons, moving skulls, artificial
thunder and lightning, in fact, the whole paraphernalia
and apparatus of the ancient mysteries. If the
neophyte, who was closely watched, showed fear or
terror, he remained for ever in the inferior degree ;
but if he bore the proof well, he was advanced to a
higher grade.

At the initiation into the second degree (Scholastici)
the same proofs, but on a grander scale, had to be
undergone. The candidate, again prepared for them by
long fastings, was led with his eyes bandaged into a large
cavern, resounding with wild howlings and roarings,
which he had to traverse, reciting at the same time
prayers specially appointed for that occasion. At the
end of the cave he had to crawl through a narrow opening,
and while doing this, the bandage was taken from
his eyes by an unseen hand, and he found himself in &
square dungeon, whose floor was covered with a mortuary
cloth, on which stood three lamps, shedding a
feeble light on the skulls and skeletons ranged around.
This was the Cave of Evocation, the Black Chamber, so
famous in the annals of the Fathers. Here, giving himself
up to prayer, the neophyte passed some time, during
which the priests could, without his being aware of
it, watch his every movement and gesture. If his behaviour
was satisfactory, all at once two brethren, representing
archangels, presented themselves before him,
without his being able to tell whence they had so suddenly
started up, — a good deal can be done with properly
fitted and oiled trap-doors, — and, observing perfect
silence, bound his forehead with a white band
soaked with blood, and covered with hieroglyphics;
they then hung a small crucifix round his neck, and a
small satchel containing relics, or what did duty for
them. Finally, they took off all his clothing, which they
cast on a pyre in one corner of the cave, and marked
his body with numerous crosses, drawn with blood. At
this point, the hierophant with his assistants entered
and, having bound a red cloth round the middle of the
candidate's body, the brethren, clothed in bloodstained
garments, placed themselves beside him, and drawing
their daggers, formed the steel arch over his head. A carpet
being then spread on the floor, all knelt down and
prayed for about an hour, after which the pyre was
secretly set on fire ; the further wall of the cave opened,
the air resounded with strains, now gay, now lugubrious,
and a long procession of spectres, phantoms, angels,
and demons defiled past the neophyte like the ' supers '
in a pantomine. Whilst this farce was going on, the
candidate took the following oath : —' In the name of
Christ crucified, I swear to burst the bonds that yet
unite me to father, mother, brothers, sisters, relations,
friends ; to the King, magistrates, and any other authority,
to which I may ever have sworn fealty, obedience,
gratitude, or service. I renounce... the place of my birth,
henceforth to exist in another sphere. I swear to reveal
to my new superior, whom I desire to know, what I have
done, thought, read, learnt, or discovered, and to observe
and watch all that comes under my notice. I swear to
yield myself up to my superior, as if I were a corpse,
deprived of life and will. I finally swear to flee temptation,
and to reveal all I succeed in discovering, well
aware that lightning is not more rapid and ready than
the dagger to reach me wherever I may be. '
" The new member having taken this oath, was then
introduced into a neighbouring cell, where he took a
bath, and was clothed in garments of new and white
linen. He finally repaired with the other brethren to a
banquet, where he could with choice food and wine
compensate himself for his long abstinence, and the
horrors and fatigues he had passed through.
