Francis Bacon had also been Mason, and was the illegitimate child of Elizabeth and Dudley. His New Atlantis spoke of “Solomon’s House” which was the secret society that would guide mankind into a new order.
Research has exposed the fact that Sir Francis Bacon, master translator of the King James Bible,and father of science, was such an outer adept. And it is rumored that he even adopted the ruse himself and had several personas. Some scholars are even of the opinion that Bacon was the true author of the works of the enigmatic William Shakespeare.
In 1606 [King] James set up the Virginia Company which was granted Royal authority to begin settlements in the province of Virginia, named after Elizabeth I, who had been popularly called the Virgin Queen. The Union Jack first flew on American soil at Jamestown in Virginia as a permanent fixture in the spring of 1607...The early members of the Virginia Company were aristocrats who supported the Church of England and the Royalist cause. They included Lord Southampton, the Earl of Pembroke, the Earl of Montgomery, the Earl of Salisbury, the Earl of Northampton, and Sir Francis Bacon...As chancellor of England, Bacon was able to persuade the king to issue the charters which enabled the new colonies to proliferate in the new world...The Virginia Company members who actually settled in America included several members of the Bacon family, and friends of his who were initiates of the Rosy Cross
It was the ‘wisest fool in Christendom’ who authorized the translation and publication of the first Protestant version of the Bible into English. He came to the English throne in 1603 and quickly became unpopular because of ‘his disgusting personal habits and his unsavory character.’ He pretended to be a scholar in theology and philosophy, but his learning was shallow and superficial. He wallowed in filth, moral and physical, but was endowed with a share of cunning that his associates called ‘a kind of crooked wisdom.’ For his new edition of the Bible he issued a set of personal ‘Rules’ the translators were to follow and ordered revisions to proceed, although he never contributed a farthing to its cost. Work began in early 1607…the translators handed over the reviser’s manuscripts of what is now called the King James Bible to King James for his final personal approval. ‘It was self-evident that James was not competent to check their work and edit it, so he passed the manuscripts to the greatest genius of all time…Sir Francis Bacon.
At various times he admitted that he was obeying the orders of a power higher and greater than himself. What he did not say was that this superior power was the Mystery school which had sent him into the world to accomplish a definite mission. The Comte de St.-Germain and Sir Francis Bacon are the two greatest emissaries sent into the world by the Secret Brotherhood in the last thousand years.
In his curious work, Das Bild des Speershüttlers die Lösung des Shakespeare-Rätsels, Alfred Freund attempts to explain the Baconian symbolism in the Philostrates. Bacon he reveals as the philosophical Hercules, whom time will establish as the true "Spear-Shaker" (Shakespeare).
Sir Francis Bacon was one of those who had been entrusted with the perpetuation and dissemination of s the arcana of the superphysical originally in the possession of the pagan hierophants, and to attain that end either formulated the Fraternity of R.C. or was admitted into an organization already existing under that name and became one of its principal representatives.
Lord Bacon was born in 1561 and history records his death in 1626. There are records in existence, however, which would indicate the probability that his funeral was a mock funeral and that, leaving England, he lived for many years under another name in Germany, there faithfully serving the secret society to the promulgation of whose doctrines he had consecrate his life. Little doubt seems to exist in the minds of impartial investigators that Lord Bacon was the legitimate son of Queen Elizabeth and the Earl of Leicester.
Father of modern science, remodeler of modern law, editor of the modem Bible, patron of modern democracy, and one of the founders of modern Freemasonry, Sir Francis Bacon was a man of many aims and purposes. He was a Rosicrucian, some have intimated the Rosicrucian. If not actually the Illustrious Father C.R.C. referred to in the Rosicrucian manifestoes, he was certainly a high initiate of the Rosicrucian Order, and it is his activities in connection with this secret body that are of prime importance to students of symbolism, philosophy, and literature.
Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626) was the author of New Atlantis. He served as Lord Chancellor of England under James I, and during the reign of Elizabeth I he was the adviser to Lord Robert Devereux, the ill-fated Earl of Essex who, under orders from the despotic queen to suppress Irish rebels, led the largest expeditionary force ever sent to Ireland. Considered a paragon among enlightened men, this maniac wrote an essay entitled: An Advertisement Touching an Holy War, in which he set the English above every other nation, declaring it a right of every Englishman to cruelly eliminate anyone who was considered socially unworthy or undesirable. The "extirpation and debellating of giants, monsters, and foreign tyrants," he wrote, was not only good and lawful, but "meritorious" and divinely honourable.
He [Francis Bacon] was a devoutly religious man and was convinced that he would rather believe all the fables of antiquity than deny that the vast fabric of creation is without a mind.
In short, Bacon realized that if you can observe objects as objectively as possible very different patterns emerge from the ones that give the subjective experience its structure.
This realization would change the face of the planet.
An infant prodigy, Francis Bacon was born into a family of courtiers in 1561. At the age of twelve a masque he had written, The Birth of Merline, was performed before Queen Elizabeth I, who knew him affectionately as her little Lord Keeper. He was a small, weak, sickly child and his schoolfellows teased him by calling him by a pun on his name, Hamlet, or 'little ham'. He was educated at Oxford and when, despite the Queen's earlier fondness for him, he was blocked again and again in his political ambitions, he conceived an ambition to build himself an 'Empire of learning', conquering every branch of erudition known to man. His intellectual brilliance was such that he became known as the 'wonder of the ages'. He wrote books that dominated the intellectual life of his day, including The Advancement of Learning, the Novum Organon, in which he proposed a radical new approach to scientific thinking, and The New Atlantis, a vision of a new world order. Part inspired by Plato's vision of Atlantis, this would prove very influential on esoteric groups in the modern world. When James I came to the throne Bacon quickly achieved his long-held ambition and became Lord Chancellor, the second most powerful post in the land. One of Bacon's responsibilities was the distribution of land grants in the New World.
Bacon's brilliance was such that it seemed to cover the whole world, and, all other things being equal, he might seem to be a better candidate for the author of the plays of Shakespeare than Shakespeare himself.
Bacon was a member of a secret society called the Order of the Helmet.
Bacon began the secret revival of these guilds, first through the Rosicrucian movement, which he is said to have founded, and later through the Free and Accepted (Speculative) Masons.
Some scholars maintain that Queen Elizabeth had been secretly married to the Earl of Liecester, Robert Dudley, and that they had two sons, Sir Francis Bacon, who had been adopted by Sir Nicholas Bacon, and Robert, Earl of Essex...Others claim that Bacon actually was the person who wrote the plays attributed to William Shakespeare.
It was also under the influence of Bacon and other esoteric magicians like John Dee and Sir Francis Walsingham, that the spy networks across Europe, now known as British Intelligence, were created.
It was Bacon, with Robert Fludd, Grand Master of the Priory of Sion, who oversaw the translation of the King James version of the Bible, a book which, according to a study in 1881, has at least 36,191 translation errors. Given that Bacon was an extremely educated and intelligent man, I can’t believe that such a mess could have been made of the Bible translation on such a scale unless it was meant that way. Bacon also removed the two Books of Maccabees from his version which, significantly, were hostile to the secret society called the Nazarenes, a Brotherhood offshoot at the time of the mythical Jesus.
One of the most important men of this entire era was the Rosicrucian, Francis Bacon. His influence was colossal. He was the Grand Master of the Rosicrucians in England, a major force in the creation of Freemasonry, the ‘father’ of modern science, and the possible author of the ‘Shakespeare’ plays. He was also a member of a secret society called the Order of the Helmet, dedicated to the worship of the goddess of wisdom, Pallas Athene, who was portrayed as wearing a helmet and holding a spear. Researchers and investigators like Manly P. Hall, the renowned Freemasonic historian, have little doubt that Bacon was born from a liaison between Queen Elizabeth I, the ‘virgin queen’, and her lover Robert Dudley, the Earl of Leicester.9 He was brought up by Nicholas and Anne Bacon and would become the most influential man in the country, overtly and covertly, with the title of Viscount of St Albans and the role of Lord Chancellor of England.
